Hi, I'm Janet and I am a full time professional photographer/studio owner based in the NW Ohio/SE Michigan area. I began my photography career just out of high school and have been enjoying every minute of this crazy wonderful career ever since. In the span of a "few" years, I've photographed over 3,300 weddings, tens of thousands of seniors, families, babies, pets, sports teams, corporate work, head shots, and just about anything that needed photographed.
Together with "on the job training" and many hours studying with the Masters at the prestigious Winona School of Professional Photography and at dozens of seminars and classes through the Professional Photographers of America, I've become the photographer that I am today. I am continually learning and adjusting and staying on top of the latest trends in photography, while using the knowledge that comes from experience to create the kind of work that you have dreamed of. I learned on film and I still love my Hasselblad's, but I also love the creativity of digital photography and love what I can do in Lightroom and Photoshop. I'm a great mixture of timeless, non-cheesy, fun, beautiful photographic styles, mixing every facet of each wedding or portrait to create the most wonderful end result. I want you to fall in love with your images and be proud to share them with your loved ones and friends. I want to be the one you call when you need photos, whether it be wedding, baby, family, or senior portraits. I have been blessed with the most incredible clients and I never take that blessing for granted. We have photographed everyone from Steve Forbes to Bill Monroe, the Stranahans to Lord and Lady Ravensdale of London, the Hemelgarn wedding in Oahu to the Forti wedding in Italy. We've photographed weddings in the million dollar range to intimate weddings held at home, all so beautiful in every way. Our wedding and portrait client list includes some of the most influential people in Toledo, Ann Arbor, Detroit, Cleveland and cities across the country and abroad.
I am past president of the Professional Photographers of NW Ohio, served on the board of the Professional Photographers of Ohio, I taught photography for 33 years, and have won many, many awards for my portrait/wedding images.
I am a person who will try anything I put my mind to doing. I'm honest and decent and loyal and fun. I believe that a professional photographer holds many responsibilities, whether is it capturing the love and emotions of your wedding day or finding each person's personality and beauty in a senior or portrait session.
God has certainly blessed my life and I am so very thankful.
Speaking of blessed....meet my wonderful staff of photographers. Best ever!
