Tell us about yourself and your business.
I’m Denise, and I’m the photographer behind Denise Joyce Photography. I am married and blessed to be a mother to 4 beautiful and pretty amazing kiddos who are responsible for inspiring my passion for photography (and a few gray hairs). I am an on-location natural light photographer who specializes in photographing teens and high school senior girls. I live in Long Beach, California, and provide services within the Los Angeles and Orange County area. I am a Canon girl, and my style of photography is more clean, fun, relaxed, and modern with an editorial twist. I pride myself on creating a unique portrait experience tailored to fit you, your personality, and your style, and we have a ton of fun while doing that! I am passionate about making this special time an experience that is memorable and about capturing images that are not only beautiful but also meaningful. These are not your standard photos for your yearbook! I love photographing high school seniors–their youth and sprit keeps me young. But most of all, I love to use my art to capture their inner beauty, build their self-esteem, make them feel special, and truly see how unique and beautiful each one really is.
Please share one tip that you found to be successful to share with other photographers in this industry.
I used to study poses on Pinterest prior to a session. However, I have found that just using your instincts have given me the best results.
