What an unforgettable family experience! Johanna turned our photo session into an adventure with lots of laughs and giggles and the most amazing photos to go along with that great memory. A picture during a summers evening definitely turned into a work of art. Thanks Johanna! More...

Johanna does a fabulous job. We had our family portraits done outside in November and we love them. She will make your session a fun and memorable experience. I'd recommend her to anyone.

Just amazing! There is nothing more special then to have a photographer who puts her whole heart and soul into her photography and make it seem like she a part of your family! Our wedding pictures will tell stories of our life and our relationship better than any words could ever explain! Love everything about her and her artwork! More...

Johanna has captured my family moments since 2003. Johanna's knowledge and expertise always shines through in her work.

After Numerous Bookings, trying for a Summer Shoot, Beach Shoot, we finally Made it a Fall Shoot for our 15th yr Anniversary Pics. It was worth the wait Johanna :) Thanks For the spectacular shots. You have managed to capture our boys beautiful smiles :) Jason and I will cherish these pics forever. Our Wall Canvas is a highlight when people come into our house. They love what you did. Thanks from The Varner Family :) More...

Johanna was excellent! From helping us coordinate our shoot to being awesome while working with a 2 yr old, 3 dogs and a pony. Going to her studio to view the photos was so helpful in choosing our portraits for the wall. The quality of photos is excellent and Johanna is so very great to work with. A real pleasure. Highly recommended. We are very pleased and will definitely go with Johanna again in the future as our photographer. More...

Johanna took our photos recently and made it so easy and fun, she was so sweet and helpful and made sure we were satisfied throughout the whole process. A couple session with a one year old lab mix who bounces off the walls sure didn't seem like an easy task to me but Johanna did it and the outcome was amazing, so happy with the photos and would definitely recommend!!

I just wanted to post just how thankful I am to have had Johanna as our wedding photographer. All the people we hired to help make our wedding day special did exactly what we expected and needed them to do, but Johanna and her coworkers were special beyond words. She went way beyond our expectations. I knew our first meeting that she was the right choice, and on our wedding day she captured moments that I otherwise might have forgotten. We tried very hard to plan ahead but the weather had other ideas. Johanna made transition from one plan to the next seem effortless. She is a talented photographer and a wonderful person and the two don't always come together. I would recommend her to anyone for any event as I know she is not scared to tackle whatever challenges you might through at her. More...

I can't even begin to explain how amazing our experience was getting our family portrait done by Johanna. Due to an illness in our family she was more than accommodating in getting us over to her amazing studio within just weeks of contacting her and it also being so close to the Christmas holidays. Another thing which is a real struggle for us is places being wheelchair accessible and her studio is just that, it was perfect. The last thing to mention and one of the most important things is the way she works with people and makes everyone smile and laugh and feel at ease. We haven't seen the pictures yet but I know they will be amazing! This was definitely an unforgettable experience. Thank you again Johanna! More...
