Do you ever have to tell yourself to Simmer Down Now? I do... I realized that I have to pump my brakes a little. it might take me a little longer to reach my $10,000 wedding package goal. You’ve been glued to that Computer! Is what I’ve been told lately by my family so I need to learn how to manage my time. I thought I was doing pretty good, but I guess not! To make up for it I took my lil man to the park for a picnic and to play baseball (well Tee ball to be exact). He loved it and we both had a blast! We have a family filled weekend planned and on Sunday I’m going to a Photoshop Seminar. I’m ready to step up my game! All I need to do is build up the courage to ask a couple to let me practice shooting them. I’m hoping I’m a pro at my camera by the end of this year and I can fit in a FREE engagement photo-shoot. I’ll be posting some information on that soon.

My baby boy did a photoshoot for Petunia Pickle BottomFall catalogue (not only do they have a cool name, they also have beautiful bags.) They sent us a complimentary bag and I’m using this to carry around my camera. Its perfect... it has slots for me to hold my lenses too..
While I was lying in bed one morning staring around my room, I thought if I was shooting a bride getting dressed in my room where would I photograph the important details. It was cool to force myself to be creative. This is the most creative I could get lol (pretty sad I know) but these are the “pretend brides” shoes hanging against my headboard...
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.
