Look back on family portrait sessions with joy. Family photo shoots are planned with fun and movement in mind. No worrying about awkward poses and perfect smiles. Don't worry - we'll get plenty of great formal family photos. But I'll be catching all the beautiful candid moments in between.

Have fun and let me handle the hard stuff. As a mom of 3, I know how challenging it can be to organize the family for photos. I'll help with all the location planning and outfit guidance. Family sessions are designed to be fun and flexible to allow for any ages and personalities that you bring.

What every family session includes...

I'm a fun, adventurous, romantic at heart. I'm also a mom, dog lover, horse owner, former teacher, and bookworm. I'm equal parts introvert and extrovert. I love to stay home and cozy up with a book or movie, but I also have a great time getting out and connecting with other people

Every family has a story to tell, and I find joy capturing whatever chapter families are in. Every season of life is worth documenting. Those seasons tell a beautiful story. Each family is different, and so are each of my family sessions. I like to find out what your hopes and goals are before we start planning the right photo shoot for you. I always do my best to make the entire process as easy and stress free as possible. 

My family photography style is light, bright, and romantic. I keep colors true to life and work to capture genuine expression, movement, and emotion. We always get some great formal, posed photos, but I really love to catch the candid moments and interactions that make up who you are as a family.

I'm Janelle — nationally featured and published photographer.
