Joy Hoffman-Baunsgard grew up in North Bend and graduated from Mount Si high School in 1985 along with her high school sweetheart Roy Baunsgard. After receiving her degree in Commercial Photography from the Art Institute of Seattle, Photography by Joy was born in the fall of 1988.
Since then Roy and joy were married and have moved their studio into a large house. The studio boasts a daylight camera room and an acre of property designed to photograph seniors and all of their favorite things. From motorcycles to horses, trucks to trombones, you name it seniors can include it in their personal portraits.
Two years ago little Troy came on the scene and has become very popular with the senior ladies. He can often be found helping mom create portraits, holding the light reflector and making the pretty ladies or as he says "pitty ladies" smile.
As you can tell this is definitely a family affair, the atmosphere is warm, relaxed and friendly and each senior is treated to his or her own session to be spoiled.
The studio is located just off I-90 in North Bend, surrounded by the beautiful Cascade Mountains, nestled in the tranquil Snoqualmie Valley. You just can't beat the location for absolutely spectacular senior portraits.
