Joanna Wright, Photographer

From Northern Virginia, I am a self-taught, natural light photographer. I bought my first camera when I was 14 and have been in love with photography ever since. I do continue to work full time as a teacher for children with special needs...my profession for the past 20 years.  Because of my background, I am patient, understanding, and love to have fun with the children and families I photograph. With two young children myself, I know the feeling of wanting to always get the "right" shot and I am always in motion.  Many clients will say their children ask for "Ms. Jo" after their session.  I am a perfectionist with the final product and sensitive to detail, color, and form. My specialty is photographing children & families in their most natural state.  

I mainly photograph in scenic Loudoun County, particularly in Western Loudoun, Leesburg, and the Waterford area. I will travel to other locations, within reason.
