Do you have those moments where it suddenly hits you that life is flying by? Nothing encourages me to hit the brakes more than when these thoughts cross my mind. We get so busy living and soon we realize the only thing we have to hang on to are memories. Memories that can get lost in the name of time unless they're documented, for you and for the next generations. So keep living life fully, soak in each moment and invite me along to capture and preserve a reflection of you and your life story!

"When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving within you,
a joy.
- Rumi


my Story

I'm Janelle. Currently living in Renton, WA. Small town girl with big dreams of traveling the world and experiencing as many new cultures as possible. Most days you can find me at my computer in a sweater, acoustic music playing, black coffee getting cold and my dog curled up as closely as possible. I'm known for being the listener in the group, the quiet one. I enjoy finding ways to encourage and serve those around me.

I discovered my passion for serving people through photography after a foreign mission trip I took over 9 years ago. I came back with the realization that a photograph has the power to convey emotion and tell a story -- even many years later. As my business grew into photographing life and love stories for other people, I held on to my purpose of photographing as organically and intentionally as possible so that the prints a grandchild will hold in their hands one day will be an accurate representation of who their grandparents really were and the love they shared for each other. I've been told I have a gift for noticing the little details and candid moments that most people overlook. Sharing my gift of photography with others so that they can also take the time to fully enjoy their life and still have a way to hold on to those memories makes my heart so happy!

I truly believe in love and marriage and tied the knot in the past two years myself. I moved to WA last fall with my hubs and black lab, Chloe from MI. On my days off, I love spending time hiking, practicing yoga, unwinding at happy hour, trying new foods, researching upcoming adventures and spending as much time in the sun as I can. I'd mention my cheese addiction, but I'm working on that...
