* Being new photographer I have so many questions! I admire those seasoned
photographers that reach out to help other people to gain success! Some are
willing to share more than others and I have found so much helpful information
from Jasmine Stars FAQ Blog Posts! She has been so open with answering questions and that inspires me to help other people along the way. To all my photography peeps out there, I’m not sure if you’ve heard of the famous wedding photographer Jasmine Star, but she’s having a business conference in Los Angeles March 20th! Check it out http://jasminestarfix.com/ I’d love to see some familiar faces!
* I’ve also been wanting to clear something up... I know that in one of my past posts I stated that one day I’d like to get good enough to charge $10,000 for a wedding session (like the big dogs) –but I’d also like to win the LOTTO! I’m not holding my breath for either one! Of course I’d like to become as good as the big dogs in the industry, but I’d like to create packages that reach out to the people who cannot afford the Top Dogs in the industry!
* Last thing I want to talk about is the photo session with Ramiro, it was awesome! If I could sum up his brand in 3 words I would definitely say ADVENTEROUS! FUN! & FIERCE! He has such a creative eye, he makes dirty alleys and old buildings look amazing! He loves to get edgy photos like stand us in the middle of the street while watching for passing cars. I say Fierce because he likes to get photos that look straight out of a high fashion magazine. He had us posed very stylish and muy suave! I literally climbed hills in heels! Trotted through weeds –that had pickas and hurt my poor feet! At the end we had a lil trash the dress session! He even had me go into the lake (yes dress and all!) Are you sure I'm allowed to swim in these waters, it looks pretty dirty!? "Yes! Of course!" So there I go waste deep in the freezing water, swimming with the ducks! The bottom half of my body went numb, but I was having fun! As I’m walking out of the Lake I look to my right and see a big sign that says NO SWIMMING!!! Great! I hope I don’t grow a third arm! Ramiro is such a cool guy that makes you feel so comfy! I can’t wait to get the photos to show you all!

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.
