Joyous Gifts Photography is a home-grown portrait photography business in Virginia Beach, Virginia. My name is Katie Hutchins, and I am a mother of two brilliant boys, my favorite photo subjects, and I was lucky enough to marry my technical support, David. I genuinely believe that our relationships with those we love are our most joyous gifts in life, and I want to help your family preserve those memories. I love capturing the fleeting moments of families, children, and expectant mothers, for your family to treasure for years to come.

I strive to produce images that your family will cherish forever, and I am not satisfied until you are satisfied. When you choose a portrait session with Joyous Gifts Photography, you will receive:

  • Open lines of communication between us for planning your session. I will help you coordinate your wardrobe, plan the pictures that you have in mind, and select an appropriate location for your session. All sessions are on location, at a site of your choosing, even your own home. I can recommend a site for you within the Hampton Roads area, depending on the feel that you desire for your finished portraits.

  • Several hours of my undivided attention for your portrait session. Sessions usually last approximately two hours. This session is all yours. Do you want to change clothes to get different looks? That's fine! Do you want to stroll around our chosen location to find a variety of backgrounds and settings? We were probably going to do that anyway! These hours are yours, for making your memories however you want to make them.

  • My time and attention to detail in retouching your portraits. This is an important step in the process of making your memories shine, and it may take up to three weeks, depending on my current workload.

  • Digital versions of your finished portraits for sharing via email and social networking sites. I can deliver this via a downloadable zip file, or via CD.

  • A private, password protected gallery where you, and whomever you choose, can order prints of your portraits from the comfort of your home.

A regular, one-or-two subject portrait session is $100. A family session is $125. Please contact me for further details, or if you have any questions.

You can reach me via email at, or by phone at (757)705-5428. I look forward to hearing from you to schedule your session!
