The Artful Baby Photography specializes in:

Pregnancy Photography: Pregnancy Photography is a beautiful art form. The pregnant body lends itself like a sculpture to capture light and form and makes for one of the most beautiful times a woman could have a professional pregnancy photographer capture her. Janette is an award winning fine art photographer and highly regarded for her elegant maternity photography portraits.

Newborn photography: Newborn photography is about patience and gentleness.  With many hours of experience Janette is considered a “baby whisperer” and professional newborn photographer with wonderful creative instincts, able to preserve this fleeting, precious time with beautiful newborn photography portraits that you will cherish for  a lifetime.

Baby Photography: Baby photography is delightful as babies are alive with smiles and yet how quickly these stages go from one to another, it’s all so fast!  Let Janette bring her creative and unique approach to capturing all the mannerisms of your beautiful baby with his/her adorable chubby toes and fingers and folds, as well as many beautiful fun and imaginative baby photography portraits.

Child Photography: Janette has a unique flair with her child photography and family photography. With many photos of children shown in galleries nationally Janette has an instinct for capturing precious personal moments of love and wonder between a mother or father and their child, as well as capturing the imagination and essence of a child in a lasting fine art child photograph that shows what childhood is all about.  Janette brings child photography to a new artistic level.
