Start Here

Hello and welcome!  So glad you stopped by!

My name is Jaana and I’m a Vacation Photographer for the Southern California area.  I know… that sounds like a made-up job.  I guess it kind of is!  I was struck with inspiration after one of my many trips to Disneyland where I watched families struggle to take selfies, get the kids to cooperate, or just shoot a decent photo at all!  I knew I could provide a service to make that easier for people.  And my little world of vacation photography was born.

Now, I realize that booking a vacation photographer might be the last thing that crosses your mind while planning a trip. But here’s why it works:

1) Southern California is a prime vacation destination.  We’ve got it all — from mountains to oceans to theme parks galore.  Tons of options, mixed with great weather, which serve as a backdrop for beautiful family photos.  And if you’d like suggestions of locations that fit into your travel plans, shoot me an email.  I’m happy to help!

2) Vacation is usually a time when you’re all just happy to be together.  Free from the stresses of schedules and school work and the day-to-day grind.  It’s the perfect time to capture genuine smiles and excitement (and maybe a tantrum or two).  All part of the experience.

3)  When you return home and go through your photos, you will have creative, high quality images of everyone together.  Mom and Dad can be in the photos and, quite simply, be present and in the moment to soak in all that family goodness.  A priceless souvenir and tangible memory that can be shared for generations to come.

I hope that gives you a little glimpse into what I love to do and why I love to do it.  Booking is limited, so let’s start planning your vacation photo session today!  Contact me via email with your travel dates so we can work out the details.  Congrats on taking this first big step to being part of your own family vacation!  🙂
