"Working with Joan at Jadestone Photographic Arts has been an amazing experience. I have never worked with a professional photographer before and am pretty shy with cameras. Joan made me feel right at home and completely comfortable. She listened to my ideas and basically became a part of them to help me accomplish the dream I had envisioned for this project. She is caring, heartfelt and radiates any room. It would have never been the same working with anyone else! Thanks Joan!"
My family and I want to let you know how much we enjoyed having our portraits done. You chose a perfect spot for us. We are all thrilled with our albums. They are so unique and well done. Everyone who has seem them has been impressed. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your work. You truly have a gift and we wish you much success in the future."

"We commend you Joan on the wonderful work you did taking our family portrait this past summer. You took the time to find a perfect outdoor place to take it. You took the time to place us all to your satisfaction to have the wonderful effect it has. Our family are all pleased as are we. We have had many compliments. We will recommend you any time. Thank you. "

"The family photos in my living, dining and bedroom have such a sentimental and timeless quality which no other artwork could possibly achieve. They have set the mood of each room, and make beautiful focal points and conversation pieces! Joan was extremely patient, and great with the kids. She captured them beautifully in original settings and poses, creating images I will treasure forever!"
"Thank you so much for the beautiful baby photographs you've taken for us! We absolutely love them! Carson changes so much from month to month and having your beautiful professional photographs to capture all the different stages is such a wonderful keepsake. We also love the belly shots you took, your unique ideas for poses turned out beautiful. You are wonderful to work with…very professional, artistic, warm and patient. The shots you managed to capture, working with a not always co-operative infant, are amazing! Thanks again, we look forward to more beautiful photographs in the future!"

"I would recommend Joan to anyone who is looking for that personal touch in a photographer. Joan was able to keep my two young children focused and on task and the results were fantastic. She is a skilled photographer and I would be happy to refer her to anyone looking to capture a special moment. Joan was able to capture the true character of my children in her photographs and spent a lot of time with me to help me pick just the right prints. Thanks Joan"
