Joy Rachel Photography Blog

I love late nights, real laughs, genuine love, fresh air, and the kind of dream clients like when it comes to going on an adventure. If you're into photos that feel as real as you are, you want your memories made to last, and you'd like to make a friend  in the process, keep scrolling, We can't wait to meet you.

March is Kidney Cancer Awareness month. I have shared in a previous post about my cancer story and how cancer touches close to home with me of all kinds. When I hear someone who is going through dialysis, waiting on a list for a kidney, or is fighting the fight of kidney cancer, I instantly […]

Last year when I finally buckled down and wanted my business to go somewhere, I had to figure out exactly what I wanted and how I wanted to represent myself to the public.  Its more than picking out your name, but its finding the style you want that best represents you.  Mine came down to […]
