Welcome to the blog of Jo Ann Manolis Photography! I’m a wedding, portrait, and fine art photographer based in Santa Cruz, CA. I’ve created this blog as a means of sharing my work and life with my clients, family, and friends. I’ll be updating it regularly with my latest work, thoughts and ideas regarding photography and art, and links to many fabulous artists and vendors. So, take a look around, enjoy, and leave me a message here if you’re inspired. I can also be reached directly by e-mail via my website:, or by phone at: (831)359-7948. Thanks for stopping by!

Family Portrait Special!


Relaxed Family Portraits have become a labor of love for me. I simply adore doing these sessions and cannot help but pour my heart into both the capture and the final images. I always feel so privileged to get to peek into the lives of families and to witness their unique bond firsthand. It’s probably because I’m in the thick of it myself, but my passion for photographing families is growing every day. What can I say? I just love it.

So, just in time for the holidays I’d like to extend an offer to all of you:

My Family Portrait prices are going up in January of 2009, but I’m offering my 2008 prices to anyone who books a Family Portrait Session with me by Dec 31st, 2008. Once booked, your session may be scheduled for anytime in 2009 but you will still get the session for 2008 prices! Shoot me an e-mail if you’re interested.

Thanks to everyone once again for all of the well wishes, I have loved hearing from so many of you and truly appreciate your kind words. My dad is getting better each day and we’re looking at busting him out of the hospital tomorrow. Yeah! I hope that the holiday season is going well for all of you. There is so much to be grateful for!
