My PORTFOLIO >
say hello! »

I am a mom of five, wife to a fellow Seinfeld addict, and I turn into a 70's disco goddess when ABBA plays on Alexa. I would trade any dessert in this world in favor of something salty (I'm looking at YOU, french fries). I'm the absolute best at finding stellar recipes on Pinterest, and the worst at picking a checkout line at the grocery store. 

But... do you know one of the things I love most? Getting to know YOU, working with you, and having a hand in preserving the most cherished parts of your life. I have been a professional photographer for 14 years and have been privileged to serve hundreds of beloved families throughout that time (I've photographed toddlers who are now taller than me and my "mama heart" can't take it!). The most important part of my job is to make sure that every soul who works with me is uplifted, inspired, and of course, receives the most gorgeous portraits on the planet to look back on.



Hi, I'm Jeanna!

"I looked high and low for a photographer that has my same style and passion for all things timeless and whimsical. When I found Jeanna I knew that a match made in heaven was about to happen. She completely brought my newborn shoot dreams to life. 

When the big day came she made sure we had proper lighting in our home and wore a mask to keep us all safe. I could tell her main goal was to have our pictures be 100% perfection. 

She is sweet, caring and amazing with kids. She was patient and understanding when I had to nurse or our sweet baby boy was being camera shy. She far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely use her again. The newborn shoot was beyond anything we could have imagined!  Worth every penny."

"I’m the happiest when I work with Jeanna because her tone is friendly and the environment is fun. She’s patient with our child that has special needs which is a huge plus. My whole family is comfortable with her and it always make for beautiful photos.

What makes Jeanna stand out from others is her attention to detail. Whether it’s commercial or family photos the execution is always flawless. With each shoot I know I’m going to receive perfect photos.

Jeanna always has a fun, natural environment while shooting. Her talent is unmatched and her photos are timeless. It’s always a pleasure."

"There are too many wonderful things to write about Jeanna. I will start with the fact that I will never have another human take my photo again. Her understanding of light and color and posing and framing make for the absolute perfect shot every time. Every holiday card I put together I have people begging for her contact info. 

Perhaps above all of that is who she is. She makes even the most uncomfortable and awkward people look like naturals and can use her photography sorcery to capture these incredible images of my kids (who are absolute tornados). We love her and have told her that she will be taking our photos for as long as she can hold a camera."

“Jeanna’s photography is magical! She has raw and genuine talent that is hard to find. She takes the ordinary, everyday moments and turns them into beautiful artwork. Her work is timeless. She has a way of capturing the sweetest moments with my children that I will get to hang onto long after they are grown.

My family loves sessions with Jeanna, she is fun and passionate about what she does. Even when the kids aren’t cooperating Jeanna works her magic and our photos are always gorgeous! Friends and family who see my pictures always want to know who my photographer is. Jeanna is a true artist.”

“We've worked with Jeanna for two family sessions and have loved working with her! As a family who does not do photo sessions very often, it is important to us to make them count when we do. Jeanna did not disappoint and I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on our photos when they were used for our holiday card!

We have two young boys who never stop moving and Jeanna was so great with them. I swore there was no way we were going to get the photos I had hoped for with how tough it seemed to get my boys to stay still. When we received them, I was beyond happy with the quality of the photos she was able to capture. We had so many amazing family photos to choose from and use. We will have these photos forever, and I am so grateful to Jeanna for doing such a wonderful job and capturing our family so perfectly.”
