Johanna Sophia Photography Blog bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    I'm Johanna, and I'm a photographer.  You have no idea how great that sounds every time I say it.  I love being a photographer!  Aside from my family and friends, nothing gives me greater joy than capturing life's everyday moments with my camera.  This is where I get to show you how much I love what I do. It is here where I hope you will see why I am so passionate about my work, my art.  You see I've got a superpower.  I can freeze time.  Pretty cool, huh?  I think so.

Gosh, winter is long. Although, at least in our part of the country, we’ve been really lucky to have had a fairly mild winter – so far. For me, it’s not only the cold weather that makes it difficult to endure, it’s the lack of color – the dreariness. It’s all brown with a gray backdrop.

Luckily, even after the longest of winters, color returns. Thankfully too, we will soon spring ahead and get an extra hour to appreciate it!

In the meantime though, I find color wherever I can. So happy to know and love this family. They sure know how to bring it when it comes to color, every session, no matter what the season.

This little guy was one curious, and obviously adorable, baby. He absolutely did not want to miss a thing. Many times he’d fall asleep while keeping one eye open! Of course pirate-eye isn’t going to fly for those sleepy newborn poses. Thankfully he eventually gave in, as they almost always do, and we were able to get some really cute images of him in gentle slumber for his beautiful mama.

Made a return trip to get his busy dad into the mix, but I know it was worth it. Capturing these memories are so important.

As you can see, he’s a baby brother too and his big sister was a great little helper. One of my favorite images from the session is of her shushing her baby brother to keep him calm while I got back into position to photograph them. As an added little bonus…I got the yawn. Love it! If I need an assistant on my next shoot, I know who to call!

Of course I just love it when I’m ready and able to catch a newborn smile. To me, it’s the pot-of-gold at the end of a rainbow. Happy to get this one in his mama’s arms. Sweet!

At 7 weeks this adorable guy was very alert and oh so charming! Quite a cutie, which I’m certain is due in no small part to his gorgeous parents, this joyful bundle is a lucky boy too. He was welcomed into a home with a sweet, also very charming and handsome big brother, and two completely smitten parents. How could they not be? This little one is utterly irresistible!

This adorable little guy was happy as a clam all swaddled up, and he gave me smile after smile.  I loved it!  As it turned out, what he loved was the little puppy — so much that he snuggled with it, hugged it, smiled and then kissed it!  If I didn’t capture it all, I wouldn’t believe it now.  I can’t help but smile myself every time I see his images.  This little boy is truly a bundle of joy!  And, with a pretty mama, handsome dad and beautiful big sister, you can see where he gets his good looks too.  There’s no shortage of beauty in this family!

The two boys have clearly been the pride and joy of this family, but then mom and dad stirred in a little sugar and spice, and now it’s pure magic. These kids are incredible — sweet, smart — so smart, thoughtful, fun-loving and obviously beautiful. We had a great session despite the fact that the weather that day was, well let’s just say, challenging — extremely hot and very humid. That didn’t deter any of us from our mission, especially their mom. Have to thank her for all the behind the scenes work. This mama’s a ball of focused energy! Hoping the next time we can get mom and dad in on the fun too!

Have a few people to thank for the opportunity to meet this family and photograph these sweet children. I think you all know who you are…so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
