Hi! My name is Janelle and ever since I was young, I’ve loved capturing life “in the moment” with photos because I believe that each moment is precious and unique and totally worth remembering!

I officially began to pursue my passion for photography in 2008 when I interned with a local wedding photographer in Santa Barbara. Since then I’ve photographed numerous engagement sessions, weddings, family portraits, maternity sessions, senior portraits, lifestyle portraits and lifestyle branding sessions. And while most of my photography jobs were in or near Santa Barbara county, I did get to do a few photography jobs in Kauai, Oahu, The Florida Keys, Las Vegas, Uganda, Kenya, Canada, Thailand and Burma!

Personally, I love spending time outside and honestly it’s where I do my best work. I’m a natural light, lifestyle photographer with a photojournalistic style. My photos have a soft focus and I tend to love blurred out backgrounds, hints of sun flare and dreamy, golden light!

My heart behind photography is that when you view your photos, you will see true beauty- in your love, in your family and in you!
