Sherri J Johnson- I am a lifelong artist and lover of photography.
I started my professional career at the age of 17 photographing children's portraits at the mall where I quickly learned about posing, how to get smiles, and how to win some awards. Formally attended Northern Illinois University where I photographed for the school's newspaper, took horseback riding classes for a year, and with honors I was also able to get a schedule only Monday-Thursday most semesters... and nothing before 10am. :)
After college, I assisted a commercial photographer and watched children models become stars. One time I got to step in and judge "best smile" at a beauty pageant. Tough night.
In the summer of 2008 I was in search for love, pretty light, and adventure. I packed up navy Nissan Altima and brought my mom along as a side kick. I drove across country with my heart set on the Golden State- where they say dreams come true.
Here we are almost a decade later and I am still loving the California coast. Some recent work includes 140+ weddings, 3500+ properties including Southern California hotels for Orbitz and California Offices for Regus, corporate events including Sony's E3 Press Expo and Destination Playstation traveling to Arizona, Costa Rica, and Cabo.
These days, you can find me hanging out in Highland Park with boyfriend Matt, photographing million dollar listings, planning a fun photoshoot for one of my portrait clients.
In my (rare) free time I enjoy foodie adventure, hikes in the Hollywood Hills, and gardening. I also recently went on my first trip to Europe.
I truly feel blessed to have a creative career where I am able to do something challenging and fun everyday. If you are in need of great photography services I would love to talk to you more.
