Hello, I'm the owner and photographer behind the camera at Life Through The Lens, thank you for stopping by.  Where to we begin?  Almost 25 years ago I married my high school sweetheart and together we have three beautiful daughters.  I'm a lover of all things creative, avid nature photographer and hippie at heart. 

I purchased my first professional camera for my daughter's Senior year.  I didn't want your standard studio session with forced poses and no personality.  My daughter was so much more than that, and I knew I wanted something special.  When I posted the images online, I couldn't believe the outpouring of love and support I received.  Photography has always been so deer to my heart, but chasing 3 little girls around didn't exactly leave time for me time to follow my dreams.  My girls, who are now almost adults, thank God, have always been my number one supporter and my inspiration, they encouraged me to follow my passion and never forget my own dreams, and that's how Life Through The Lens was born.

My style is colorful, simple and fresh.  My sessions are fun, candid and, energetic.  Years from now, I want my clients to look back on their images and relive that moment, and treasure that time in their life.  Let me come to you, let's pick a favorite place and let's build a package customized for what you envision.  Whether you're looking for portraits, have special occasion you want to remember forever, or you're just trying to get that family picture that you've been planning for the past five years, let me have the pleasure of capturing your Life Through The Lens, I would love to work with you! -Jan

I'm so excited to tell you about The FL365 Project!  In our down time my family and I love to travel, we love to discover new locations, eat local foods, and take the roads less traveled.  So, when I'm not photographing families, you can find me outside taking in the sheer beautify right outside my door.

I'll be honest...I hated Florida when I first moved here in the early 90's, yeiks! that really dates me.  Over the years I have fallen in love with everything that Florida has to offer.  Besides the obvious 365 days of sunshine, it's the most nature filled place I've been, offering visitors more than just the typical amusement parks and 2 hour wait lines.  Over the past year I have dedicated my blog to traveling Florida hoping to get people to see the "Real" side of Florida and experience some of the most beautiful locations we have found while traveling.

It's not always an easy trip since my travels often involve  my girls, my 2 dogs, my hubby, and a few tagalongs like my niece or nephew, my daughter's new love, insert cheesy smile, my sisters, or on a rare occasion my retired parents who think my RV loving lifestyle is a little unconventional, but in the end...it's all about the experience and all about the destination!

Let's partner together to drive our visitors right to your door!
