Meet your photographer!

Hey y'all, I am Janessa.

I am so happy you're here. I serve families in Anchorage, Alaska, and surrounding areas. Telling your story and capturing those special, intimate moments is what I love to do. My biggest goal is to help you feel comfortable and confident being in front of the camera, because let's be honest, it can feel SUPER awkward! But I love to prompt you to do things you would normally do, so that it feels like we are all just hanging out. :) Let's get together and tell your story!

Let's chat!

Kind Words

"We recently did a mini family photo session with Janessa and she was AWESOME! Very professional but so relatable at the same time. She was patient with us as we have a 1 year old and trying to get us all out the door on time can be challenging at times (ie- we were a bit late). She gave us direction on how to pose and made it SO FUN! The photos are proof. It all turned out so wonderful and it’s all thanks to Janessa! (She even got our beagles to pose for the camera)"
