Welcome to hello, joy! My name is Jessica Bauer and I am the owner of and photographer behind hello, joy! I am a mom, wife, elementary teacher, coach and part time photographer in the Sioux Falls area.
I am a Minnesota girl, born and raised. I moved to South Dakota in 1999 to attend college at Dakota State University on Madison, SD. I enjoyed south dakota so much, I stayed!
My husband Shawn and I live in Sioux Falls. My interest in photography started with my love of taking pictures of my own children. My daughter, son and 3 step-sons are often the subjects of my photos - willing or not! My hobby turned into something that I became so passionate about - so in 2016 I turned it into a business!
The inspiration for the name of my company comes from my middle name, Joy. My goal is to bring my joy and love of photography to my clients through the pictures I capture of them and their loved ones.
I enjoy taking all kinds of portrait and candid photographs. Take a look around my site and if you would like me to capture your memories, contact me at email@example.com or fill out the contact form on my website.
I look forward to hearing from you!
