Wonderful to work with.Jul 20, 2018VerifiedJo Anne R.'s reply
Thank you so very much, Angela! It was such an absolute pleasure meeting, chatting with, and photographing all of you! :) Warmly, Jo Anne
Jo Anne is wonderful! She's amazing to work with, and you get the quality you pay for. Her photos bring out a personality and a beauty in me that I've never seen before! I'd work with her again and I'm so glad I picked her to be my headshot photographer.Jul 23, 2017VerifiedJo Anne R.'s reply
Sabrina, you are so sweet! It was all inside of you already. I just bring it to the surface and capture it for all the world to see! :) Thank you! ~ Warmly, Jo Anne
Jo Anne was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive to my needs and did a great job. Thank you!Oct 31, 2016VerifiedJo Anne R.'s reply
Erin, Thank you so much. We had a quick deadline to meet and we got it done! Phew! :) It was great working with you and I'd love the opportunity to work with you again with the full glamour session we discussed! ~ warmly, Jo Anne
Jo Anne was great! She really is as good as all of her reviews here! She made me feel relaxed, which is half the battle! :) And I feel she brings out the best in you! The proofs were excellent and I'm looking forward to the printed headshot. Joanne knows the business and is able to help you select the best commercial shot versus the best theatrical shot, if you are a model or an actor.Sep 19, 2016VerifiedJo Anne R.'s reply
Thank you Ann-dee for being so specific in your review. I think that is very helpful information for future clients. Your wonderful comments are very much appreciated. :) ~ Warmly, Jo Anne
It's not often that we meet people of the utmost integrity and who are the professional that they claim to be. I'm one of those lucky people who found the "Angel" I was looking for to help me at the age of 66 and newly divorced, looking for a job, find that photographer, Jo Anne, of Defining Imagery Fine Photography, who made me feel like a princess. Through her kindness and encouragement and most of all her sincerity, I was able to get through a sitting and feel so good about myself and the pictures being taken. Jo Anne takes her time and gives you the sense of friendship. She takes immense pride in her work and I unhesitatingly recommend her for any photography needs you may have. I, for one, will surely call upon Jo Anne whenever anyone in our family wants to have the ultimate experience. Thank you Jo Anne for being you!!! I'm greatly appreciative.

Susan... such beautiful and touching things to say! I truly enjoy my work. I get to spend time with such nice, kind, and interesting people, such as yourself, and have meaningful conversations from life experiences, to the workings of The Universe! Sometimes we laugh hysterically, sometimes we cry, but always, we capture the moments when the Soul is shining through - real moments, with real emotions. And it's people like you, who come to me, and open themselves up to be vulnerable in front of my camera, and share honestly of themselves, that make the rewards of being a photographer so much more than being just a way to earn a living. I respect and honour the trust all of you put in me, and it fuels me to do the very best for you that I can. And then, to receive a response like yours, that validates not only what I DO, but who I AM to the core... that is absolutely priceless! Wow - words cannot express! With deepest gratitude... thank you! Warmly, Jo Anne

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I try to work with individuals based on their needs. Everyone is different. So, I quote based on the very limited information given me in the bid request, but then it's always open to being tweaked to best suit your personal budget and needs. Please don't hesitate to call or write to discuss the options!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My clients love how simple and easy I make the process. Usually we chat (email or call) a bit to go over the details of your request and provide each other with any additional information. And sometimes people just mark me as hired based on my work and my reviews! We set the date and time and I get some very basic info for the paperwork, like address, phone, and email. I write it up and send it over to them, they ok it and we're all set! They see right from the start that I'm a pro with a legitimate, licensed business that they can trust. They feel secure in having a written agreement that details exactly what they are getting, and that I'm actually committed to showing up!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a lifelong learner! I believe that if you're not growing, your dying! Not only do I always seek to become a better photographer, I am always seeking to become a better me! I've been educated by amazing world-reknown photographers like the legendary Monte Zucker, Sue Bryce, Peter Hurley, Scott Robert Lim, Clay Blackmore, Hanson Fong, David Ziezer, Lindsay Adler, Rick Salmon, and so many more! I take every class that's available to me, that I can fit in! As I do my editing work, I've got educational videos playing virtually all the time!
