About - Scatter Joy Photos - Photography by Naphtalie Joy Joiner


There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Scatter Joy Photos is built on my guiding philosophy to "Scatter Joy,” a quote coined by Ralph Waldo Emerson. As someone with a passion for photography and having been born with "Joy" as my middle name, I have come to embrace this phrase in everything I do.

I took my very first photography course in college and immediately fell in love. The process of capturing, editing, and then printing is truly an amazing experience and has brought me so much joy. Despite my love for photography, I studied something else in college and it was not until I graduated that I realized I had to return to my love for beauty and photos so I then studied photography and graphic design.

Since then, I have taken thousands of photos, been in photo exhibitions, created photo books, and had photos published. Photography is a very rewarding artform. It is something that never grows old and constantly challenges me to go farther with my skill and creativity. I love capturing beauty and sharing it with others and it is my hope to somehow scatter joy to others through my photos.

My dream one day is to travel the world and photograph even more. But in the meantime, I live a very happy life in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area with my wonderful husband where I do freelance graphic design and photography.
