About me

Ivana Reay-Jones


Hi, friend! I’m Ivana! (pronounced even-a)

Most days you can find me taking photos, hiking, or curled up on the couch with my son and husband, reading, playing board games, or plotting our next family vacation. You can also catch me watching YouTube tutorials about the newest photo gadgets while sipping on a huge cup of coffee.

I was born and raised in Europe and embarked on my journey to the United States many years ago (it makes me feel old when I do the actual count). As a little girl, I always wanted to travel and see the world. Emigrating to the States has been a dream come true.

I often daydream about laundry folding itself and the house getting cleaned on its own. Isn’t daydreaming fun?

The things I am most passionate about in life are my family, photography, and chocolate.

When I’m not busy working on my next photo project, you can catch me hiking, baking, and spending time with my family and friends.

Outside of work, I love tasting new coffees and watching sports, especially soccer and tennis, and love teaching others about all things photography.

Why Me?


First, everyone is welcome here!

Second, you will never regret celebrating your family and creating and preserving your memories. Time passes, children grow and change, new milestones arrive, and we all get older. Let me be your family historian and create unique and personalized artwork of your family or children so you can preserve and share memories for many years to come. This is one investment you will never regret making.

Perfection is certainly not my style. My photography focuses on storytelling, capturing fun moments and genuine expressions and interactions among family members. Yes, this includes nose-picking and silly faces photos.

And lastly, my business offerings are versatile yet very specific. Several years ago, I expanded my services to include real estate photography/videography, family videography, and small business/personal brand ad commercial photography and videography, with an emphasis on web and social media content. In short, I am a family, commercial, and real estate photographer and videographer.

About My Prices


When it comes to family photography, my prices are neither the cheapest nor the most expensive in the area and with a $249 session fee and a $899 minimum order, there are no surprises with your investment. And with different payment plan options, you can rest assured you will never feel a buyer’s remorse with preserving your memories. You can see what others say about my work here.

So, if I sound like a photographer for you, get in touch and let’s plan your next session.
