About Joanna

Sanguine Portraiture

Creating images that exude
confidence, poise, and grace.

Artistically, I love the contrast of beautiful subjects in dark backgrounds which produce rich black and white portraits. It exemplifies beauty in vogue through simplicity.

You'll find that I am drawn to editorial posing. But I will have you laughing during your session.

I am an ambivert so I like quiet, but love being around people. I am a true artist, yet so analytical. All of these characteristics contribute to the nuances that define my Sanguine brand.

photographic artist and creator


There are so many things I love. God, my family, road trips, rental cars, and 4-star hotels. I loved living in Alaska for over 10 years. I love water with ice cream, croissant pudding, and any Italian meal with seafood. I love, love, love to laugh.

I love to laugh until tears come and I can't catch my breath. I love children that just stare at me when I photograph them...those are iconic images.

I enjoy cooking gourmet meals… often. I make an amazing 10 cheese macaroni! I'm opinionated - iced tea should have sugar, and summers shouldn't be hotter than 70 degrees. My favorite climate is autumn on the East Coast. I really enjoy family time and get-togethers. I have a love/hate relationship with big cities.

Phenomenal Woman

Sanguine Portraiture

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.

I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
