let's be friends!
I'm a photographer and educator based in Scottsdale, Arizona! Giving joyful people laughter filled and stress free photos and helping photographers turn their dream to grow their business into a plan that actually works!
For some reason, I’ve put off blogging this session, because in my mind I’m been thinking, “save the best for last.” … And since this is seriously one of my ALL TIME favorite sessions, I keep post-poning blogging it, because I wanted to save the best for last. But as long as I continue to do photography, there will be no “last” … haha, and then it will be two years later and I would still be saving this blog. ;) So, I decided to realize that it makes absolutely no sense to save this for last and I’m finally sharing the whole shoot!!! :)
Janelle and I ALWAYS have such a fun time while shooting together! Whether it’s because I make her sit in bug, possibly snake, infested grass or because I run into a cactus and she asks if I need help and I say “NO! Stay exactly where you are so I can take a picture of it after I get this cactus out of my leg!” … Haha. Plus, this shoot was the WINDIEST shoot I’ve ever done, and for most people, that might be a problem, but Janelle seriously made that wind work for her! ;) And the sky on this evening was breath-taking! From the blue and cloudy sky to the sunset, it’s all real, because I don’t even know how to add a fake sky even if I wanted to. Haha. ;)
Also, any jewels that you see Janelle wearing in these photos were crafted by her own two hands! She makes beautiful jewelry! I have two necklaces from her that I LOVE! Buy the Janelle Dawn Collection on Etsy! :)
