Hello and Welcome!

Joanmarie Blog About Me Photo.JPG

I'm Joan and I'm so happy you are here!  

You have arrived at a fresh and exciting online journal of  photography, storytelling, and a simplified lifestyle.  

  Before I capture an image there is a story...a story that can be interpreted in many ways.  Props, if any, are simple and few.  The subject takes center stage surrounded by surfaces and lighting which enhance the simplicity and beauty of the scene.

Each image I create is brought to life with words and feelings that add to the visual experience - an experience I hope you find thought-provoking, inspiring, and meaningful...  

I would simply LOVE IT if you find joy, valuable messages, or takeaways from my posts, all from a visually relaxing online experience!

There are plenty of contact areas to provide your email information if you choose to follow along on the blog or to follow me on


 Do you have a question or perhaps a suggestion for a blog post?  Maybe you just want to share some thoughts personally?  Use my contact form below to get in touch with me and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.  

I look forward to hearing from you....Let's Talk!
