The Rocky Mountain News called Joanne, “...a leading edge photographer.” Many clients contact her with challenging, difficult and unique projects including CD covers, unusual animals and large group sittings for magazine covers.

This photo house continues to attract a diverse and creative clientele who demand nothing less than perfection.

In Memorial

Brad Wilcox, a long-time friend and business partner completed his journey here on earth, but will remain in the hearts and minds of those he touched for eternity.

Always a consummate advocate for others, caring about his intent and mission here, we honor him and remember his kindness in all that we continue to do at Obsessions.

The Creative Team

In 1990, Joanne was joined by stylist Brad Ramsey, well known regionally and nationally for his hair, makeup and wig designs and his incredible ability to style clothing and set design.

The studio’s philosophy of community participation continues on in the form of giving back to those in need.

The studio will continue to support the Boulder County AIDS Project with a donation of art work yearly.


This photo house prides itself on consistent, creative, personal and prompt client service.

Currently working as top image consultants and headshot artists, both Joanne and Brad look forward to serving all of your photographic needs.

Thank You!

Giving Back

Our studio has always been an advocate for others, and believes in giving back to the community.

In a continuing effort to do this, a portion of every senior portrait will be donated to the Child Rescue Foundation, Inc., a Colorado Not for Profit organization dedicated to resources for children and families affected by domestic and family violence.
