Hi, I am Joye

I am the mother of three children: a pediatric nurse, a Marine, and a professional dancer, fully grown and on their own. I've been married to my husband Mike for 30 years and counting. I'm a mountain girl at heart but have called Austin my home for over 30 years and love the area landscape and warmth! ​

I've been passionate about photography my entire life and after a career in speech pathology, working with brain injured and stroke patients, I decided to start my photography business. ​

I am a lifestyle photographer that specializes in family sessions, senior portraits and dance photography. I love sports and animals as well. I'm happy to try my hand at anything you may need! I look forward to meeting you and helping you capture moments that last a lifetime! 


The Boyer Family

“What started out as our son's senior portrait session evolved into a really fun and successful family shoot. Joye worked with us patiently and was so creative in the process. We ended up with a perfect family photo for our holiday card as well as beautiful photos of our kids to give to the grandparents. She chose a perfect location and knew exactly how to work with the scenery & lighting to make us look our best. Joye made this experience enjoyable & relaxed. Even my husband said he had a great time!”

Take a look

Enjoy browsing through my website. It's just a small look into my lifelong passion of photography. My photos are taken in natural light all around the city and surrounding areas of Austin, as well as anywhere else I travel. I'm happy to choose your photo shoot location or you can tell me where you'd like to go. I'm easy going and flexible and love to have fun with my clients on site! A simple look always works but I love to photograph beautiful, unique and crazy attire as well. I enjoy family shoots, senior portraits and dance shoots but will take on a menagerie of shoots to fit your needs. Take a look and give me call to book your session!
