There's something soothing about lying on a pile of clean clothes straight out of the dryer. The warmth makes me feel all cozy... I’ll never outgrow this feeling. Jack looks at me like I'm strange, but then again he often looks at me with that face. I love to trip people out -in a good way of course.
There are always a few people judging you on your appearance. I recently had someone tell me thatI was high maintenance because I was wearing a zebra print book bag (which I had for 6 years, from high school n bought for $15 buckaroos)and sunglasses ($5 from the alleys in L.A.)... oh how wrong he was.
Jack taught me to not care what negative people think and he adores my randomness. I like to throw myself out there around quiet timid people. Like last night during dinner I began singing loudly, a song that Rizzo sings from Grease (which is one of my all time fav movies, it’s up there with forest gump) just to trip my bro n our friend Buns out. Her face was priceless. Some people have the gift of speaking and cracking jokes, (which I murder anything that comes out of my mouth) but I'd like to think I have the gift of randomness :)
I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
