—  About

Hi! I'm Joanie, a freelance photographer in Phoenix, AZ specializing in food and lifestyle.

Joanie Simon Food Photographer

I didn't plan to be a photographer, despite receiving a BFA in Art History from Arizona State University in 2004.  I thought I needed a "real" job.  I took a creative detour, working in various fields for ten years including higher education administration and technology sales. But, I bought my first DSLR in 2008 in hopes of improving the photos on my blog.  By 2015 I booked my first paid shoot.  Since then, I have accumulated a wonderful list of clients ranging from large retail operations to small boutique food brands to families to local professionals.

I especially love shooting my two boys on our "Ranchito" in Phoenix and I'm eternally thankful that they, along with their Dad, support my business and creativity.
