Welcome to the Kathy Joyce Photography website. Thank you for visiting. I am glad to be able to share with you the photography I am so passionate about.
After photographing families and events for more than 31 years, I am proud to be able to show you a sample of my work here. Over the years, my camera and I have had the distinct honor and pleasure of preserving many wonderful moments in time. I have waited and watched as human nature revealed itself to me. The magic of it all never ceases to amaze me.
Photography is my work, but it is also my passion. Doing what I enjoy the most makes me feel like I’m on top of the world. I start each new project with a curious mind, a sharp eye and a kind heart. It is such a pleasure for me when my clients open their doors, hearts and minds to me and my camera. I am able to use what is inside me to reveal the true beauty of my subject, and it is a blessing for both of us. Through the camera’s eye, the people in my photographs speak to you and tell you about themselves.
Beginning at the age of 19, I put myself through four years of nursing school, shooting weddings for Bachrach Studios. Upon graduation with a BS in nursing, I lasted only eight months as a full-time nurse. After that I put myself through two years at the New England School of Photography, working 24 hours on weekends at Mass General Hospital.
How lucky I am to have a gift for making beautiful images, but it is also important to me to use my photography to help people and organizations. I have volunteered my time and talent for Brain Cancer Research at Beth Isreal, Windrush Farm Therapeutic Equitation, Lazarus House Ministries Good Shepherd Center, North Shore Youth Symphony Orchestra, Summer Strings in Lawrence, the PTO and Earth Day events. Photography for the greater good!
Today I balance my photography work with the awesome job of being a mother to three very wonderful children. I am able to work around their schedules and, now that they are getting older, I am thrilled to be able to spend time teaching and showing them the ins and outs of the work I do.
