Joie Who?

Joie de Vivre Photographie

Well, it’s not really a “who“, but more a “what“. Joie de Vivre is a common French expression that means Joy of Life¬† or the Joy of Living.

The phrase is generally used to describe enjoyment and love of life, life’s activities, and life’s momentous events.

And we want to be there to capture all of it!

Many think of us as their family photographer and want us there for all of their life’s important moments.
