Specializing in  relaxed sessions and authentic images


Your experience with Janelle...

HI there!! i get it- Planning a photoshoot can be intimidating! whether its for your engagement and wedding photos or updating the family pics you haven't done in years, its hard to know where to start.  When to do them? Where to do them? What to wear? That's where I come in.
I am there from the very beginning, helping you answer alllllll the questions. I have a list of locations for you to choose from or we can try something new. I know the best times to shoot at which spots and I provide a prep and style guide to help make the experience as stress-free as possible. On top of helping with all those details, I send over a personal questionnaire to get to know you and everyone involved in the session a bit better.
When we finally get to the day of the session, we will both be ready and prepared to have an amazing time! That is my ultimate goal. For you to be able to relax and enjoy time with your loved ones while I snap away and record all the memories! click on what you're looking for below to get even more details!





"see those smiles, they’re authentic…she captured them. that’s all i could ask for!! choose janelle, she’s the best!

We love Janelle so much she is a great photographer. She has quality equipment and she knows how to use it. She has good style and perspective and definitely has an eye for editing. She is just as sweet as she is professional. No pressure, no awkwardness just a great time together preserving a moment in time. Truth be told I’m not photogenic and usually don’t like taking pictures but I wanted to remember this phase of our lives. See those smiles, they’re authentic…she captured them. That’s all I could ask for!! Choose Janelle, she’s the best!



"they are pictures that make you feel something when you look at them. the photos are always absolutely stunning. every one is frame worthy"

Janelle is THE BEST of the best. She has taken our family photos the last 3 years. She is so great with kids!! The pictures she has captured of our daughter at ages 1, 2, and 3 are priceless. The photos are always beautiful and natural and a wonderful reflection of our little girl. She is so incredibly talented and has an incredible eye for catching sweet moments between loved ones that reflect their true relationships and personalities.  Couldn’t recommend her enough! She will be taking our family pictures for years to come!



"janelle really knows how to make you feel comfortable and captures the candid, raw and natural shots."

I can’t recommend Janelle enough! My husband and I did our engagement photo shoot with her and we were both nervous as it was our photo shoot together. We really didn’t want cheesy/awkward photos and we got far from it. She exceeded our expectations, can’t wait to hire her again! Thank you Janelle!!
