My Chapters So Far....


I'm so happy you're here!


I've loved photography for many, many years, and my favorite thing about taking photos is the ability to capture a moment in time....in a story....and cherish it forever. I'm a lifestyle and natural light photographer who's all about fun, loving, candid shots, because of the beauty and the honesty found in them.


In addition to being a photographer, I am also a former children's librarian, a wife, and a mama. In fact, becoming a mother is what made my love for photography grow and reminded me of how important it is to capture these precious moments in life, especially since time seems to fly by!


That's what I want to do for my clients....Capture precious moments in your story and make them last forever! Let's work together to make time stand still.

What is it like to work with me?

I. We Book the date.

You can send me a message via my Say Hello! page or via my email address (jocelyntranphoto@gmail.com), or you can book the type of session you want and the date and time via the button below!

II. Plan your session with me.

I'll work with you to select and style your wardrobe, choose a location (if you happen to need suggestions!), and share my welcome guide that gives you an idea of what to expect from me as your photographer. If you're eloping or having an intimate wedding, we'll have check-ins throughout your planning process, and I'll get you hyped and feeling super-comfortable about your big day!

III. Take your photos!

Lifestyle photography involves capturing honest moments, so you might receive prompts from me that will get you moving around, laughing, and honestly smiling. Occasional posing might also take place, but I'll guide you through any poses, and I'm right there posing with you, so you can have a visual idea of the pose we're going for. You'll hear a lot "Oh, my gosh! You're so beautiful!" or "Ugh! I love that!" from me, too! I'm seriously going to be your hype girl!

Receiving Your Images

I'm the photographer that can't wait to start editing your images after your session, so you can expect a sneak peek with a few edited images within 48 hours. For 1 or 2-hour sessions, I'll have your gallery completed within 2 weeks, while event galleries will be completed within 4-8 weeks (depending on the event). From there, you'll have access to an online gallery and beautiful images to keep and share for years.
