My name is Katy Miele, I'm 22 years old, and I grew up on Cape Cod. I am the owner of Joyful Moments Photography, based out of Yarmouthport, MA. I've had a love for photography for as long as I can remember, and I began seriously considering the idea of building a freelance business out of my passion in 2015. Since then, I have enjoyed every minute of meeting new people around the Cape and capturing moments through the lens of my camera that may have otherwise been missed.
I have experience photographing families of all sizes, children, events, weddings, engagements, senior portraits, sports, pets, and parties. Family photo sessions are my sweet spot; I love capturing smiles, laughter, and joy in my time photographing families and children. My approach to a photo session is to make it as fun and relaxed as possible. I believe that while it is important to get the posed, formal photos, I am also sure to get plenty of candid shots. I believe some of the best photos come from informal, unposed photos; like children splashing in the ocean, husband and wife walking and holding hands, or a parent hugging their baby tight.
When you don't find me behind a camera, you will find me caring for children for families all around Cape Cod. Childcare is another one of my passions that I find so rewarding and enjoyable. And when I'm not with kids or photographing a session, you'll find me strumming the guitar, singing, reading, or taking care of my homestead with my husband, Joe. Through our hobbies and jobs, Joe and I both consider it our highest priority to glorify God, love and serve the people around us. We strive to live with an eternal perspective to pursue joy and take in every moment.
