I'M janelle, A PHOTOGRAPHER & coach IN wisconsin

As a creative photographer, I possess a deep passion for immortalizing life's beauty through the lens of my camera. With a unique artistic flair, I strive to inject a captivating style into every photography session I undertake. I highly value meticulous attention to detail, a visionary perspective, and effective communication in order to truly grasp and fulfill the individual requirements of those I have the privilege of working with. My ultimate objective is to elevate ordinary moments into extraordinary memories, thus crafting a treasured assortment of breathtaking photographs that will be cherished for a lifetime.

One of the things that sets myself apart from others in the industry is an ability to create a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere during the shoot. Allowing your true self to shine through in each photograph. Striving to capture emotions and expressions in a way that is both authentic and artistic.

"I have worked in awesome locations including: LA, New York, St. Thomas Island, Hawaii, Punta Cana, Florida, and Wisconsin's beautiful Door County."

our first choice when it comes to capturing special moments

"Saying Janelle is the best is an understatement! She truly is the most artistic photographer, and we've been so impressed with all of the details or moments that were captured. We were so impressed after working with her for our wedding and receiving our gallery that we have since booked Janimal Photography for maternity and family sessions. It takes a special photographer to make you feel like a camera is not even present and feel in the moment with your family. She knew exactly how to make the session fun with our young children. Janelle even recommended locations to shoot at based on our vision, each time she was an absolute joy to be around, and we've always received our galleries very quickly and been blown away at how stunning the galleries were. Janimal Photography will definitely continue to be our first choice when it comes to capturing special moments as our lives change."

We might share some interests!

I find the most joy in the company of my family, as these moments are often filled with laughter and happiness. As the middle child, I share a unique position between my younger brother and older sister. It's no secret that I possess many of the typical traits associated with middle siblings - I am 99% goofball and only 1% normal. Since the age of two, I have been captivated by the art of dance, with hip-hop and contemporary styles being my absolute favorites. Dance serves as one of my primary passions, and as I have grown older, I now have the privilege of sharing this passion by teaching others at my mom's dance studio, DDH. 

On days when I am not busy capturing moments through photography, you will find me cherishing quality time with my family, snowboarding with cherished friends, indulging in video games such as COD, Fortnite, and Zelda, and immersing myself in intriguing true crime podcasts like MFM and Crime Junkie. Naturally, my heart belongs to dogs, but ever since I adopted my first rescue cat, Ziggy, she has undeniably transformed me into a cat lover as well. Moreover, being an avid animal lover, I wholeheartedly welcome your furry friends to join us.
