hello there

I'm jana

My family is my everything.

I'm wife to Dominic and mama to Rose, that gorgeous little girl you see floating around my social media pages. You know the one, hair as wild as her personality. 

These two are my life-loves.

My support, my inspiration, my whole heart and the reason I need so much caffeine.

 

Our family also includes three *mostly* loveable fur-babies - Hendrix, Lucy & Sadie; and our newly-acquired feather friends: the chickens. Hopefully someday I'll get to add a pet duck to this list!

I'm an introvert; shy & generally quiet. Put a camera in my hands and I'm in my comfortzone, a total goofball.

Just a small-town girl with a big smile and an even bigger imagination. 

Photography was always a passion for me. My parents bought me my first SLR camera in high school, and likely spent more on film and prints than they did on the camera, which I now consider to have been an investment in my future. 

What started as a hobby quickly turned into a full-time career, which I love and I'm so passionate about. It amazes me that I'm able to do this every day. I don't consider myself just a photographer, because it's not just about the photos, it's about the experience. I value my clients and I want them to leave each session smiling

I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and like Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist, we learn life-skills to take with us on our journey.  I'm a certified interior designer with experience in marketing, communications, event planning, social media, finance and administration. Jane-of-all-trades, right? These tools inspire and guide your sessions: mini-session setups, themes and decor, branding sessions for your business, creating the timeline for your wedding day. I want all of my sessions to be as easy for my clients as possible. Not sure what to wear? I even offer an interactive styling guide for your session! 

Some things about me: I run on caffeine. If we're meeting for an early consultation, I'm definitely suggesting a coffee shop.  If it's too late for coffee, I'm suggesting drinks. Let's chat over wine, craft beer, or if you want to become my forever friend, Caesars!
