Hey I'm Janel
I'm a Virginia based adventure photographer.
Hey Friends, My name is Janel and I am so glad that you have made it to this page. Let's start off with a little about me. The most important part of picking your photographer is finding someone you can vibe with. Here we go! I am a huge advocate for all-day coffee. Yassss! If I can get away with wearing pajamas believe I am going to do it. My best friend is my dog, yeah he is a little spoiled. I love eating potatoes any kind of way you could imagine, Being outdoors in nature surrounded by wilderness is my favorite thing. I have never felt more at peace than I do when I am by myself in nature, exploring new areas. It is truly my happiest place. I am a huge introvert and need time to myself to reset. I am such a nerd and love laying around reading a good book. I love watching funny TV sitcoms like Friends, New Girl, and Schitt's Creek. Well enough about me, let's get to the part that is all about you. I can't wait to get to know you!
When senior year begins, you’ll find yourself in a whirlwind... for real! Senior class activities, navigating classes, applying to colleges, and avoiding (probably succumbing) to the dreaded “senioritis”. This is a perfect time to slow down and savor the moment. Your senior year is a major milestone and senior portraits are a rite of passage. I'm here to make sure you have Senior Portraits you LOVE.

We’ll go through outfits and styles together until we’ve found multiple looks that show off your favorite clothes... the clothes that make you feel and look incredible. The best part?
