Hi, I am Janet Johnson

You may have seen me volunteering in the community or featured on the Photog Life, Model Mag, or as the 2018, 2019 Best Photographer. You will most likely see me in deep thought.Deep thought about how I'll create the next set, where or how I create the best environment for your pictures that capture you in the best light, and make the entire process easier for you. I think I have mastered living in the moment. Taking the time to enjoy the colors, light, smells, and feeling that moment creates and curating it in my mind, and if it's with me, my camera.

I've been taking pictures since 1982. Learning with film and a darkroom at an early age, it was a passion I shared with my father. So while I love playing with Photoshop and unique processes, I understand getting it right in the camera and understanding the exposure triangle is key.

I've been married to the same great guy since high school. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter and dogs. I danced for almost 25 years of my life that helped me understand the body and movement and benefits me in event photography or capturing those cute little preschoolers that can't set still. And while I love the benefits that digital files and a DSLR provides, there is no feeling like holding a quality, tight canvas, mounted print, brilliant metal or the depth of an acrylic offset wall hanging in your hands for the first time and breathing in the beauty and combination of the science and art that created your masterpiece.

Testimonials

“I found Janet through the FLHS website. She was super responsive to my inquiry, very professional and extremely accommodating to my schedule and requests. During our senior pictures shoot, she was quite a perfectionist. She listened to our ideas, but we quickly learned that her creativity far surpassed ours. She gained our trust within the first moments, and she followed through with excellent customer service until the pictures were delivery in a nice neat package. We were very pleased with her persona”

“J Renee has exceeded my expectations each time I have worked with her both in the quality of her images and the turn around time for proofs. Her skill at utilizing studio lighting sets her in studio images far above the rest.”

“Really great experience, we got headshots for our company and really loved it all, great pricing as well!”

“For my son’s senior portraits we wanted to capture some family pictures too in a special place that took awhile to coordinate. Janet met us at the farm and brought so many memories to my family. We were able to re live the past for a couple of hours. Janet knew exactly how to capture my son with his great grandfather’s property involved. She knew that my son is an old soul and how to make that work in modern day.
Thank you Janet for a job well done!”
