ABOUT

Hi!  I'm Janelle Stephanie!

My family and I just moved from Santa Barbara, Ca to Allen, Tx and we are happy to call Texas our new home!

I've been capturing romance, beauty and family love since 2008.

I do my best work in natural light and outside! 

You'll find that I have a lifestyle approach, capturing some posed moments and some that happen naturally.   

My photography has been featured on Martha Stewart Weddings and Grey Likes Weddings. 

Words to describe my style:
“Sweet. Soft. Couture. Raw. One of a kind. Slightly French. Backyard country beauty. Abandoned rope swings. Hints of floral. Glamor. Warm summer nights. Wind blown, beach tousled hair. Floating. Moonshine. Rain. Hidden gardens. Paris. Italia. Morocco. Future retro. Je ne sais quoi. Selah.”

This is us!

My wonderful husband, our beautiful daughter and I. We just moved from Santa Barbara, CA to Allen, TX and we are happy to call Texas our new home!

Paul and I have been married for a few years now.  And we're so grateful that God brought us together via an accidental date on a beautiful summer evening. 

Paul is tenderhearted and full of tremendous peace. And his words have weight. He cares for us so well!

And our daughter is such a gift! She is unlike anything I had imagined! Her endless, sweet smiles melt my heart all day long. I still can't believe that she is part of our family!

FAQ

What's the process for booking a portrait session? 

    - Typically, you will select a date and time on my booking calendar, here!
    - After you select your date and time I will send you a $50 deposit request and agreement.  
       (Deposits are non-refundable.)
    - Then we decide on a location via email or a quick phone call!
    - After we decide on a location we will talk about your vision for your photoshoot!
       + You'll let me know more about what editing style and lighting style you prefer.
       + I may suggest ideas to incorporate into your photoshoot. 
       + I'll offer you styling suggestions. 
       + I'll connect you with local hair and makeup artists if you like.
     - On the day of the shoot, I'll meet you at your location and we will take the photos you envisioned along with some others that come to us in the moment.  I allot 1.5 hours for each shoot so that we have some wiggle room with outfit changes or spread out locations.  Your final payment will be due on the day of the shoot as well. 
      - Within 2 weeks, I will send you 100 edited photos.  You will be able to select 25 to download for free!  After that it's $1/photo download.  (You also have the option to meet with me to select your favorites and I will edit just those.  This is a great option for branding photoshoots as my clients typically know exactly which shots they are looking for!)
 
And that's pretty much the process!  I'm always available to speak about these things over the phone or email!  And I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
