Hello, I am Johanna

My family and I moved to the Washington, D.C. area from the South Pacific island of Papua New Guinea in 2014 to start a church on Capitol Hill. I immediately became enamored by the majestic buildings around the city--specifically the Capitol.

I got my first DSLR camera for my 15th birthday and began carrying it everywhere with me trying to capture life just as I saw it.

More About Me

Photography is like poetry, only visual. There are so many stories and meanings one picture can portray, it all depends on who's looking at the photo and whether they are paying enough attention.

My goal is to capture beautiful in-between moments that make your story so special.
