Hi and thanks for stopping by. I would be honored to capture your story through my lens. Stay a while and look around. I can’t wait to hear from you
Janet can suggest a location that works best for you and your family. Take a moment to look over the galleries and blog to get an idea of where you would like to see your family photographed and keep in mind that Janet is always up for new fun locations! If you have suggestions let her know!
How long will our session last?
Newborn sessions typically last two to three hours to allow for plenty of time for feedings and lots of love and comforting. All other sessions typically last between one to two depending on the session. However, Janet never rushes and leaves time for time for snacks, breaks and outfit changes.
What does the session fee cover?
The session fee covers the sessions itself which takes anywhere from one to two hours depending on the type of session. Janet never rushes her time with you and only scheduled one session per day so that she can devote her undivided attention to you and your family. The session fee also includes an online gallery to share with friends and family and digital file downloads. The amount depends on the session chosen.
What if it rains?
We are fortunate to live in Florida where the sun shines almost every day, however if you do encounter a rainy day (especially those pesky summer storms) Janet is always happy to reschedule.
What should we wear?
Have fun with this part! The best option is to coordinate without being over “matchy”. Textures and prints are always fun and layers work well in photographs. When you lay your outfits out together nothing should stand out. Feel free to bring outfit changes but keep in mind that you might want to stick to no more than two outfits as young kids especially don’t love stopping to get changed. I often suggest to bring some fun things for your little one like hats, ties, fun bows, bright clothing, etc. Maternity clients should stick to form fitting outfits or tops that can be pulled above the belly. Color and accessories such as necklaces and ear rings can add a fun feel to your photographs. If you need help with wardrobe Janet will be more than happy to help you out.

What is Janet’s photography style?
Janet’s style is best described and simple playful and artistic. She has a unique perspective with her photography that captures timeless images that you will treasure for years to come. Her goal during your session is to capture you and your family for exactly who you are. She works to connect with you and make you feel comfortable
Once we have completed our photo shoot, how long can we expect before we see our images?
Janet will load your images into an online gallery that you can share with friends and family approximately two – three weeks after your session. Then from there you can download digital files.
How long can we expect before our order comes in after our ordering session?
If you decided to order through Janet, prints and cards take two to three weeks and custom items such as canvasses and album take up to eight to ten weeks.
What is the best age to have my child photographed?
Janet prefers to photograph newborn babies within the first 6-14 days of life. The next best age would be three months and seven months when your baby is sitting up with confidence but not yet crawling. One year is also a great age to photograph your baby as they are entering their toddler stage. After one year any time is wonderful!
