Meet the artist

I’m Bethany Joy! I am a photographer, designer, and podcaster. I create art and encourage others to do the same. Everything I do is to make others seen & celebrated. Welcome, get in here, and share your creativity with me by subscribing to my free newsletter Seen & Celebrated. Book a commissioned portrait session or get to know me more by listening to The Creativity Cure.

Celebrating Originality

Each portrait I make is a unique expression of art. I believe you are unique and your personalized art and experience should be the same!


Crafting with Quality 

Each session is a handcrafted experience. I use historic references, modern techniques, special equipment, and careful post-processing to ensure a quality experience!


Connected to Community 

I was raised in Baltimore, MD. I have interned with our local museums and small businesses and studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art. I love to encourage others to get to know their neighborhood small businesses. I aim to include other artisans in the process of making my work.
