Joy Rahat Portraits


Your Family Legacy Portraits Begin Here

A family portrait session  is always exciting with our full photography services.  Your experience begins with an in-home style and concept consultation designed to help you select wardrobe for your entire  family. The day of the photo session starts with  hair and makeup for moms,  followed by a private session for her and  then the rest of the family members join for shared family portrait experience.

The experience is completed until the hand delivery and complimentary installation of your custom wall art.

…I could not imagine what we would see at the day of the reveal and to order our prints. Joy had pulled together clips of the day and photos from the session into a video. As all four of us watched these amazing photos, tears streamed from my eyes. Now, that’s “All About Emotions”. She captured the moment perfectly. I am truly blessed to have had such an awesome opportunity to work with such an amazing person.

Thank you Joy Rahat for your professionalism and your kindness.

My mom and I had an amazing time working with Joy! We did a mother-daughter photoshoot, and our pictures came out beautiful. Joy does an amazing job of taking the pictures, and she knows which poses are flattering. She is an expert in the field of photography. Additionally, she is really kind and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed every minute of the shoot, and we love the pictures we received. We highly recommend doing a shoot with her!

Thank you so much Joy! 🙂

My daughter had her high school senior portraits taken by Joy. The entire experience was wonderful, and provided memories that will be a part of our family for a long time. It was important to Joy to meet with us, and get to know us, and then, she was available when we were shopping for wardrobe items. The portrait session was comfortable and fun! And the end products, the portraits, were fabulous!

Thank you Joy!

Joy was such a pleasure to work with. I can’t rave enough about how extraordinarily talented she is. Her artistic abilities and immense knowledge about how to produce beautiful photos along with her ability to provide clear direction during the shoot created some of the most amazing photos for us. Highly recommend!

Thank you, Joy!

Joy was a pleasure to work with for our mother/daughter photoshoot. The pictures came out beautifully and is something my daughter and I will cherish forever. Joy knows all the tricks and tips in making one pose and look beautiful. She also captures you in a way that makes you look and feel as though you’re in a magazine cover photo. She is amazing!

Each time I work with Joy, I have given her complete control and trust in what we are creating together….she has exceeded my wildest hopes each time. The experience is not only perfect from the final product but the process is enlightening, fun, candid and empowering! It is a must do if you want to make an impression with your audience.


Joy Rahat Portraits Review

Maha Baimyrzaeva

Joy is a rare artist who can bring forth uniqueness and beauty in each of us. Her ability to put you at ease and her superb technical skills perfectly complement her talent. Before working with Joy I did not value professional photography because my previous professionals pictures were bland images with no character or life in them, though taken by expensive cameras. Joy’s photos changed what I expect of portraits. Her portraits are an art form that radiate life and energy capable of transforming how we see ourselves and other people. I would give 100 stars here if it was possible.

Thank you, Joy!
