for the laid back lovers and creative souls

Hello, I'm glad you're here!
 
I'm Janine, I'm 27 and a portrait photographer from Duluth, MN. I've lived in Duluth since 2012 and have been photographing couples since 2017. Things grew quickly and I was able to quit my job in 2020 and go full time to serve my clients best! I love to travel so don't let where I am located keep you from inquiring with me! I even offer discounts to certain locations. 

I'm married to my best friend of 6 years, a step-mom and Golden Retriever mama. If you love dog spam go give me a follow @janineleighphoto. 

I'm here to capture your love story.

from the north shore to WHEREVER you wish...

My style lies between bright and moody. I like to keep as much natural color as possible but also enhance the image to make it pop. You'll notice in my portfolio that neutrals are my favorite but more vibrant colors never hurt. I love warm tones and shoot 95% of the time in natural light. The other 5% is at the reception indoors at weddings. Great things to look at when booking your wedding is  seeking natural lit spaces for ceremony and reception if possible, getting ready rooms and where you want bridal party and family photos taken. To get my true editing style working with all natural light is the way to go!

Senior portraits and couples have my heart and I'm most passionate about. 

I'm a very laid back, go with the flow type of person. I love to have my structure where it's needed but I believe the best moments and memories are made outside the timeline or or plans made whether it be your engagement session or wedding day. 

Your experience working with me whether it be a senior session, engagement, headshots, etc it  should be fun, carefree and not stressful! I help with posing, outfits, locations etc so each client feels their best and comfortable in front of my camera.

"Where do I being? Janine has every quality you'd hope to find in a photographer with a few to mention being: personable, welcoming, and driven. Her vibrant positive energy is contagious and it radiates throughout the entire photoshoot with you and your loved one (s). She seamlessly instructed us on stances and also allowed for improv with our own opinions on how we wanted our photos to look. It is obvious that she is in a profession that was calling her name and she finds as much excitement in the process as we do! Immediately, what felt like less than an hour she had edited a handful of photos for our "sneak peak", which I would've been extremely satisfied with those alone. I still can't believe she has more pictures for us to view. We could not believe the perfection behind her shooting and editing skills and were simultaneously in admiration of her talent! We couldn't be happier to have her booked for our wedding in 2021 and we cannot wait to fill our home and walls with her work as our future family grows. "

 "I have used Janine now for mainly mini sessions, but when I say this girl does it all she does it ALL.
She is beyond creative, and can turn any shot into absolute Magic. From the angles, to the editing, Janine’s work is art.
We just recently did some family photos with my dog and husband, and also more lifestyle product shoots for apparel companies.
Every single person who comments says how amazing of a photographer she is.
She is personable, amazing at communication, and does the little things like plan and scout locations, mood boards, and most importantly listens to her clients and what they envision.
If a client doesn’t have a vision, she isn’t afraid to take the lead creatively.
I personally appreciate the sneak peaks she sends and the time she puts into putting together her galleries.
Simply put; she is amazing and the full package. I am SO glad we connected!"

"Looking through photographers for your engagement and wedding photos can be super overwhelming. As I was doing my searching, a friend of mine recommended Janine! And I am so so happy she did! As Janine and I were chatting on the phone she was personable and professional. After our phone call I knew that she was the person I wanted taking our photos! This was easily justified as we went into our engagement session. Janine arrived early to scope out the area and prep for the session, which we appreciated greatly. My fiancé and I were worried that taking engagement photos might feel awkward or weird, but Janine made us feel so comfortable and made it all very easy and fun! After the session, we got our sneaks back so quickly- I couldn’t believe it! Our full gallery wasn’t far behind either. The photos and edits turned out AMAZING! We are so happy and cannot wait for our wedding day to be captured by Janine! ❤️"
