A Sisterly Christmas

Well, the year is coming to a close & I’ve wrapped up my last few shoots for 2012. I’ve honestly got to say that this year for me as a photographer has been a learning one. I’ve learned new techniques, new lessons, purchased new equipment, and expanded my work reach. I’m so grateful for all I’ve been allowed to experience (good and bad) because every last experience has grown me in my craft!

One of my shoots this Christmas season was with an old highschool classmate and her sister. For a Christmas gift, they wanted to give something special to their mom — so they reached out to me to set up a photo shoot! I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty thoughtful gift to me!

And as an early gift to you all, here is a sneak peek from their shoot.

Since I’m in such a great spirit, anyone who emails me at before 11:59pm December 31st, 2012 with the subject line: Christmas Coupon , will receive a discount on their next shoot with [Joc’s Photography]! ALL YEAR**!

Ok ok, I think I’m all gifted out right now so you guys have a blast this Christmas and enjoy your holiday season!!

Peace & Photos,


** Discount does not include weddings, events, or editorials. One discount voucher per household. Good through December 31st, 2013**

Hey guys! It’s been a WHIIIIIIIIIILLLLEEE since I’ve updated the Official [Joc’s Photography] Website! I’ve been so busy shooting, booking, working, editing, and juggling everything else in life; I haven’t been able to post any of my recent work!

A month ago I had the pleasure of working with my good friend producer (and uncanny model) Sam Harmonix (Sam Pounds). I got so caught up in making sure I blogged about how the day went, I forgot to post the friggin photos!! Go figure!

Soooooo without further ado-o-o-o-o, here is a sneak peek of his shoot! You’ve got to check out the Official [Joc’s Photography] Website to peep the rest!

Peace & Photos,

WAKE UP Mr. West….I See Those Flashing Lights!

Have you ever had one of those weekends where you had what seemed like a GAGILLION things to do and not enough hours to do them in??? Well my friend, you know exactly how I felt this weekend.


All last week (my first full week back from vacay. sigh) I was helping my very good friend Andrea plan my goddaughter London’s VERY FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY!!! Needless to say we had so many good ideas that got mumbled and jumbled and all tie-dyed together — we almost weren’t sure we were going to pull everything off. 77074_1641106593140_1266894403_n

On top of the helping plan the party, I had to play ‘catch up’ with photo shoot inquiries, editing, and deliveries — but the cherry on top was making sure I had everything in line for the Our Success Magazine Launch Event! As many of you already know, I have the pleasure of being added as a photog contributor to the mags roster. I was also featured as the October 2012 Woman of the Issue (yayyyy, still excited about that). ea8ae32472f33e499bbd4f10aa9ac7c2

REWIND TO FRIDAY, then FAST FORWARD an inch to Saturday. With my neice coming down for the birthday party, I ended up rushing out the door that night and arriving ‘fashionably late’ to the OSM event AND on top of that I had a slight dress malfunction!!! After pulling myself together and virtually tearing down the highway (…VIRTUALLY) I met up with my [creative half] & [artsy ace boon] Rich Griffis; who inadvertently became my escort for the night. haha

Needless to say, the Launch was a success (no pun intended) and between my goddaughter’s party Sunday and driving my neice back home, I was worn to the doggone bone (no rhyme intended)!! I AM proud of myself however seeing as how I just successfully completed an entire day of work today with only like 3 hours of good sleep! 399362_4076579958152_1410953866_n

But hey…that’s the sign of a good weekend right?!

Peace & photos. – Joc

In New Yorkkkkkk!

GUYS!!! I’ve been so busy this past month it isn’t even funny!

Last week I took my BEYOND late “vacay” and decided to spend it in the snowy, concrete jungle. Even though weather and cancellations didn’t allow me to shoot much, I still was able to snap a few pics. Check out the mobiles I snapped…it’s not much, but hey, it’ll hold you until I can get the ones from the Nikon up =)
