Joanne McSorleyAs a South Jersey photographer Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 12 when, in the days of film and darkrooms, I received my first manual camera.

Born and raised in beautiful Wales, in the United Kingdom, I took that old Olympus OM10 everywhere and photographed everything that moved – and a lot of stuff that didn’t.

I was hooked; I joined camera clubs and chose photography as my career.

I studied Fashion and Advertising photography at the UK’s prestigious Cheltenham and Gloucester College Of Higher Education, earning a HND. And as soon as I graduated, I was headhunted by a daily newspaper – where I worked for 10 years, first as a photographer and then as a picture editor.

Looking for a challenge and variety, I left to freelance for leading picture agencies, which saw my photography published in leading newspapers such as The Times Of London, The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mail to name but a few.

I have had the privilege of photographing many famous personalities from royalty and statesmen to global sports stars and fashion icons. My personal highlights include HRH Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Nelson Mandella, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta Jones, Star Wars legend George Lucas, golfer Tiger Woods and designer Victoria Beckham.

I was lucky enough to move to the States when I married my husband, Doug, and now we have two wonderful young children, Liam and Seren. It was only after I became a mother when I saw how fast these little people grow that I felt the desire to specialize in newborn photography. In Fact, my newborn pictures remain my most treasured possesions.

I want to help capture those precious moments that change all too quickly; the pouty milk stained lips, baby down on ears and back, flaky hands and feet, tiny little nails and their serene, drifting sleep.

As moms, we can hold on tight to the memories but as the years pass, those memories begin to fade.

Hiring a newborn photographer in South Jersey or Philadelphia and having newborn photos will let you relive the touch and smell of your baby’s soft skin and fuzzy hair forever.

To perfect my newborn photography skills I have spent time training with Pittsburgh leading newborn photographer.

I currently reside in Medford, New Jersey and service all surrounding areas including Marlton, Cherry Hill, Haddonfield, Voorhees, Lumberton, Evesham, Mt Laurel, Shamong.
