  • My name is Analisa Joy and I cannot begin to explain the excitement I have at simply doing something that I love! God has created an amazing world and He has made it easy for me to find joy in the small things in life. Life is short and I aim to capture every moment of it, for myself and anyone else I am lucky enough to meet!


“To Capture the Joys of Life in Every Photo.”
