Hi! I'm Janelle!

Nice to meet you!

get in touch

Tel: 949-436-1475



Most days you can find me hanging out with my tiny best friend, Scottie Rose. We love taking our pup Indy for walks while simultaneously location scouting and eating snacks. I am mostly known for making a mean cocktail courtesy of my bartender past and being picky with normal food but loving the weird stuff that no one else likes. Pop open that can of sardines, throw on some tobasco and hand it over.  Kim chee raw crab- I'll take it. 

When I'm not busy with sessions and editing, you can find me surfing with the hubs, begging my toddler for hugs and kisses, learning to cook one mediocre meal at a time, and forcing said toddler to model for me. 

I photograph people who want authentic images of themselves and their family in that moment. Sure, I'm going to give you a few classic portraits. But, for the rest, I like to keep it as real as possible. A breeze comes and blows a small strand of hair in your face? It's staying. You're laughing so hard you get those tiny little smile lines around your eyes? I love them. I love images that looked lived in and like a real moment. 

Still here? Let's connect. Fill in the contact form to the right, give me a call, or send a quick text. Full disclosure, I am terribly awkward talking on the phone. Don't hold it against me. I promise I am WAY better in person! Can't wait to hear from you!
