We are so thrilled with the photos that you took of our precious baby boy! We enjoyed watching you lovingly work with him and are amazed at the patience you have in making sure each picture is the perfect shot! We can’t wait for another occasion to work with you! Thank you for capturing one of the happiest times in our lives.

I cannot thank Joelle enough for the amazing pictures! She really captured Oli's spirit, the way that I see her, not only beautiful, but so much more. And it comes through so clearly in the photos!

Joelle is very professional, creative and easy to work with. It was a great experience working with her. She did a wonderful job on my maternity session and my newborn session. Our pictures are beautiful. I will definitely see her again when my little peanut turns one!

We found Sweigart Photography for our newborn's photoshoot through another photographer's recommendation and were so pleased that we went with Joelle! She was so warm, calming, and professional with our newest bundle of joy. She spent the time to perfectly pose and capture our daughter's every feature. And the photos were incredible!!! We were blown away and are so excited to have these perfectly captured memories to share with friends and family! It was a great experience and look forward to using Sweigart Photography again for more family moments.

I found Sweigart photography after seeing a friends newborn pictures on facebook and I'm so glad I decided to book a newborn session myself. Joelle was so gentle and patient with my little 8 day old and the poses she was able to maneuver her into were fantastic. Joelle has beautiful props and ideas that translated wonderfully on film. I can't wait to send copies of the photos to my family and of course decorate my house with all the amazing pictures of my daughter. Thank you Joelle for capturing the earliest memories I'll have of my little princess.

My husband and I booked Sweigart Photography for my son’s first birthday cake smash and party. We are so happy with the way the images turned out. Joelle shot the cake smash in her studio. She took the time to discuss our vision for the shoot, and they turned out just as we had hoped. For the party Jon and Joelle both arrived early to take some family portraits. Those are some of my favorites from the day. And then Joelle stayed on during the party. Friends and family are in love with the pictures she took of their little ones. Working with Joelle and Jon was a great experience, and we would enthusiastically recommend Sweigart Photography.

We had a great experience working with Joelle at Sweigart Photography. She's a lovely person who made it easy to work with a newborn and three year old. And, the pictures are just gorgeous! We are so grateful to have these beautiful memories to put in our home and share with family and friends.

Working with Joelle has been a total pleasure and I couldn't be happier with our experience or her beautiful photographs. From my first communication with Joelle, she was very flexible, working around changing variables to set a date for the photoshoot. Although I felt completely disorganized at the time, and I needed to change our session date several times, Joelle worked patiently with us. Her patience showed again on the day of our shoot. She carefully posed our son and took so much time to get the various shots. I couldn't believe how much patience was required actually, and I was very impressed by her careful manor in placing our son just so to ensure the perfect shot. She had great ideas on how to pose the baby and some cute props to incorporate as well. Her studio was very comfortable and toasty which was a big concern for me, as our little guy was in his birthday suit for most of the time in early January!
The pictures all came out beautifully and we have great memories not only in the form of those wonderful shots but also of a really fun first outing with our new baby boy.

I was first introduced to Sweigart Photography when my sister had Joelle photograph her newborn daughter. I happened to be looking for a wedding photographer at that time, and when I saw the photos of my niece, I knew that Sweigart Photography would be the perfect choice. Leading up to our wedding, Jon met with me to go over the details of the day, the portraits we wanted captured and just all the little intricacies of the day. I knew I was in good hands by all the notes Jon took from our meeting. Whatever I was sure to forget about on the wedding day, he was sure to remember. On the actual wedding day, Jon captured every moment I could have wanted and then some. He was non intrusive and captured lots of natural moments, along with our many family portraits. The proof of Jon’s skills were demonstrated when we received the final proofs. The biggest challenge was narrowing which photos we wanted for our album because they were all amazing photos. We are super appreciative that Jon captured our day in just the artistic way we wanted and highly recommend Sweigart Photography.

I am absolutely in love with my newborn pictures! I was so impressed with how well Joelle worked with Summer (at just 8 days old) and with such ease. She was able to capture how sweet and innocent a newborn baby is. I can't wait to send out the birth announcements!

Joelle at Sweigart Photography did a fantastic job on portraits of my 3-month old son. She had a baby-friendly set-up (including a space heater to keep it warm and cozy!) and worked efficiently, with many ideas for props, backdrops etc. She did a great job picking the best shots and editing them. I was unsure whether it would be worth it to have a professional photographer take portraits but am so happy I did it because I now have a beautiful set of pictures of my baby boy which have also made great gifts for his grandmas and godparents. I highly recommend Sweigart Photography!

We needed new images of our jewelry on a model in a hurry at the request of a gallery. I know from past experience that our product is incredibly hard to photograph because of the reflective materials. I have had images taken previously on models by other photographers, and didn’t come away with very many usable images to suite our needs. Jon consulted with us, and was very easy to work with. During the session he really took our needs into consideration while shooting. As a result, we have a useable, beautiful image of every piece that we shot, and we shot quite a lot of pieces! We couldn’t be more pleased!

Our experience with Joelle in the studio was fantastic. Getting so many great shots of a two year old is a feat in itself, but to have such a great temperament while working with children is an added bonus. My son was so comfortable during the shoot, which has not been the case for the past few times we have been to other “kid friendly” studios. The relaxed way the photos were taken I think make all the difference. I was also pleasantly surprised to find shots of myself that I did not “cringe” over. I have recently noticed that I do not have many pictures with my son and myself. I am glad to see an end to that. Again, I think the relaxed, non-forced nature of the shoot is the difference between acceptable pictures and exceptional ones. Thank you again Sweigart Photography for making this a pleasant experience for us.

We used Sweigart Photography for pictures of our newborn and one year-old and were very pleased. What we liked most about Sweigart Photography was the “naturalness” that Joelle were able to capture. No posing, no “say cheese”. She is very innovative in their photography and can turn the most ordinary surroundings into something creative and artistic. We also appreciated the ease of ordering our prints. We ordered them online and on our own time. There were lots of size/finish options and everything shipped quickly. I think we found our new photographer!

Sweigart Photography did an amazing job with our maternity photos! In just a short session, Joelle was able to capture a wide spectrum of shots ranging from traditional to more casual in-the-moment shots. She was also very accommodating as she worked with our tight schedule. Joelle was very easy to work with during the session, constantly making us laugh while still demonstrating the utmost professionalism. Thanks to Joelle we have a beautiful collection of pictures that will always help keep this wonderful time as a priceless memory. We would strongly recommend. Joelle – she is truly a pleasure to work with and her love of photography shines through in her attention to detail, the care for each shot, and the quality of the results.
