Janelle – Summer Sessions


Senior spotlight!

Gorgeous, kind, and inspired by those around her, Janelle equally inspires them back.

As many of you know, 2020-2021 we debuted a senior spokesmodel program. While COVID may have interfered with the original schedule of events for the year, we were still able to squeeze in a day trip to Bar Harbor for some fun getting to know each other and hanging out on the beach.

This sets the scene for Janelle’s first session! Sand Beach in Acadia National Park is one of my favorite places in the park for its varied landscapes and soft light. Plus, who doesn’t love a good beach? And Janelle? Well, she was kind of flawless.

Beyond her easy ability to connect people with a kind word and a smile, Janelle apparently is a professional model in her free time. 😉

But don’t just take my word for it!

Nestled just to the east of the Napa River, this beautiful resort is home to a variety of modern farmhouse-inspired suites and bungalows, intermixed through the grape vines. Guests enjoy the privacy of their own lodgings with the ease of a weekend together, making this spot an ideal home base for a weekend of festivities. Accessible from three airports, Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento, Stanly Ranch is ideal for relaxed destination weddings.

As a wedding photographer, I am asked over and over how much film I shot at weddings, etc. Short answer? I wasn’t. But now I think this is a small joy I’ll continue granting myself.
