Ordinary Joys.  Everyday Life.


"I tend to find the ecstasy hidden in ordinary joys because I did not expect those joys to be ordinary to me."
Andrew Solomon, author & lecturer

About Joy Lifestyle

Joy Lifestyle Photography is all about capturing the ordinary joys of everyday life.  It is my pleasure to capture your lifestyle in a simple, relaxed way to best feature your story as it is, whether that be in a field of flowers or your messy living room.  Located in the Central Valley of California, we have a beautiful backdrop to help represent what makes you special.  

I can capture just about anything you wish, but here are a few categories I am especially happy to photograph:

  • Maternity
  • Birth
  • Newborn
  • Breastfeeding
  • Kids & Families
  • High school seniors
  • Day in the Life
  • Adoptive, Foster & Birth families

About Me!

My name is Ronnie {Joy}.  I am newly thirty-five and not sure how I feel about it.  I've been married for fourteen years and we have two daughters;  five and three years old.  I am currently in the stage of life where the days are long but the years are short.  I have a lot of mom guilt because, like many moms, I'm just not sure if I'm doing it right. While I may be perpetually exhausted I am thankful for where I am, even if it's messy and chaotic most of the time.  I want, so very badly, to remember this stage of life, even if it isn't perfect.  I want to document the everyday moments along with the special occasions because these days will be over before I know it. That is why I decided to start this business. I want to do the same for other wonderfully messy families. 


Just for fun:

Things I love - Hamilton, watching funny animal videos, exploring old buildings, Earth Wind & Fire, Hamilton, chips & salsa, people who think farts are funny, and coffee. Buckets of coffee. Oh! And Hamilton. 
Things I loathe - the sound of someone clipping their nails, crafting, funnel cake, small talk, and Nickelback ;)
