Hi, I'm Janessa, the woman behind the lens and the owner of Janessa Rose Photography and Design.
One of my passions in life is to capture moments for people that make their memories last forever. As a grand daughter of someone that had Alzheimer's, and as a collector of keepsakes, I understand the importance of freezing time for everyone, so that they can always remember their favorite parts of life.
My first digital camera was given to me at the age of 7, so there are literally millions of photos on my hard drive that include anything from people, animals, landscapes, architecture, animals and more! When I was 18 I started shooting portraits more frequently, and since then I have gained years of experience with my Camera, Adobe Photoshop, and Lightroom; of course there is always more to learn, and I'm constantly striving to perfect my skills.
Along with photography, I also have a crafting blog with free .svg downloads, and tutorials on things like decorating for parties and creating things with my Cricut!
Shoot me a message on my contact page, Facebook, or Instagram if you want to talk about photography, photo editing, or Jesus!

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do you accept credit cards?
A: Yes! I have a portable card reader that I take with me to every photo shoot!
Q: What should I wear to my photo shoot?
A: If you book a family session, I ask that you wear similar or complimentary solid colors to each other. If it's a solo session, wear something that describes you and that you'll be comfortable in! Sessions are more fun if your attire allows you more movement! If it's a maternity session, you can either wear your own dress(es) or choose from my digital wardrobe!
Q: Do you have any locations you recommend?
A: Yes! I'm based out of Grants Pass, OR and there are lots of parks and trails around here that showcase the beauty of Southern Oregon. Another favorite location of mine is the Redwoods in Northern California, and I will always be okay with booking your session there.
