Joel gazed at his wife with so much love in his eyes! He already had that proud papa grin! Maritza has been blessed with the beautiful pregnancy glow! They have been married for two years and are so thrilled to be expecting their first baby girl Mariah -yes she is named after her mamas idol Mariah Carey! I had such a nice time capturing their excitement of becoming parents! Mariah even started to dance around in her mamas belly! So much fun!
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.
