Some people frame their first dollar that their business made & Ill frame my first paypal receipt for my first paid session! I’ll never forget the feelings I had when I booked my first paying client, Jamie!
Excitement. Shock. Nervous. Scared.
Jamie was a contestant of my love story contest & still decided to book me when she came in second place. She asked to change her shoot to later on in the year to get photos of her beautiful baby girl! Little Samira is going to be celebrating her 2nd birthday this December and boy is she a cutie with a cool name!!! Thank you Jamie for being the first to invest in my business!
Look at those gorgeous locks!
Where did Dora go!?!
Pretty in Pearls!
I think I surprised her a lil...
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.
