"My heart’s desire is to create evocative imagery that captures the true essence and spirit of a moment."

I am inspired by nature, beautiful architecture and human connection and view these elements through a lens of light and love. With every photograph I take, I strive to capture light, love & authenticity with a delicate, editorial, luminous aesthetic.

When I’m not capturing love stories, you’ll find me soaking up every moment with my sweet family. My hubby Mitchell and I are the epitome of “opposites attract” but we couldn’t be more in love after seven years of marriage. Our darling boys are my whole world. Together we love spontaneous adventures, slow satisfying moments of simplicity in our garden and being outdoors at every opportunity with our family pup, Oliver.

I do this work because my heart feels alive with a camera in my hand.

I love the creative process of developing a vision and then seeing it come to life. I love walking into a wedding day with the goal of truly seeing people; not just photographing them. Seeing them interact with each other and watching as they experience one of the most meaningful days of their lives, and somehow trying to tell that story as honestly and beautifully as I can so that someday they may relive it all as they hold their wedding images in their hands.

the other joys that set my heart on fire

My Family  | My husband and I met on a surprise blind date and got married on a white sand beach in Hawaii.  In 2015 and 2018, we welcomed our two sweet boys to our family - and my heart has been its fullest ever since.

My Darling Boys | Lincoln (age 5) and Holden (age 2) are my free-spirited, energetic little boys. I end most days absolutely exhausted and filled to the brim with gratitude that they are mine. 

The Garden  |  Slow, quiet moments in the garden are a deeply coveted time for me.  Getting my hands dirty, ridding my space of weeds and nurturing things that are striving to grow is something that brings me great peace and joy.

Oliver  |  Our 'first child' Oliver is an Australian Labradoodle with the sweetest, gentlest demeanor.  In case you're wondering, yes, we are those crazy people who love and treasure our pets like they are members of the family. 

Travel  |  Sometimes we arrive at the airport with nothing but a carry-on and without knowing exactly what our destination will be; we've definitely caught the wanderlust bug here in the Andersen family!

"...was everything a bride should experience!"

From our first meeting, countless emails, engagement photos, to our big day, working with Janet was perfect in every way. I’ll never forget meeting Janet at our local Starbucks, she had a sense of calm, excitement, and professionalism. She not only is compassionate about her work, but she wants to get to know you as a couple.

"Janet captured the raw emotions of our beautiful day"

Janet fit in not only as a hired Photographer but a newfound friend we all grew to love and admire. She helped us feel so comfortable - as if a close friend was taking our photos! Everything from the big moments to the finest, most dainty and otherwise forgettable details. Janet ensures we could never nor would ever want to forget these details!

"Her style perfectly captured the joy and love..."

Working with Janet was genuinely fun. She was so truly excited for my wedding, and even managed to get my loving, yet reserved, husband to smile for pictures. Her style perfectly captured the joy, love, and excitement of the whole day.
