Kansas City Family Photographer

WELCOME

Hey there! My name is JoEllen but my friends call me Jo, so you should, too. I was born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin, but I’ve been living the Kansas City dream since 2010. When I’m not behind the lens, you can find me drinking all the coffee, playing guitar, chasing around my friends’ toddlers or busting out some board games with the homies. I live for Packers’ season and I’m continually dreaming of the next travel adventure.

Besides the gift of having been able to capture thousands of families’ priceless moments, I’ve had the fun privilege of being featured as the cover for The Independent KC and won the honor of being the profile picture for Kansas City’s Instagram page in 2018 (check me out here!)

 My passion for photography truly sparked when I had the pleasure of getting to be a nanny for 8+ years. It was then that I realized the joy it brought me to freeze these fleeting moments in time that otherwise just pass us by. Life flies by so quickly, and it seems to go faster every year. If you’re anything like me, there are a thousand things on your mind at any given time. It feels like the sweetest moments slip through our hands, and we don’t realize how precious they are until they’re gone. That’s where I come in.

My passion is to capture those sweet moments for you as they happen. My favorite photoshoot is the real one. The one that catches you and your family in your most authentic, silly, stunning and beautifully honest moments, and to freeze those moments in time for you to be able to hold on to the magic forever. While my career is photography, my actual job is capturing magic. Do you have some magic you are wanting to keep for forever? Let’s talk! Bring your dog, your tickle fights, your entire family in rain boots, and whatever other love you have brimming over that you want to hold onto, and let’s make sure those irreplaceable moments are also unforgettable ones.
