Hello friend! My name is Jane.
Stories have a particular way of allowing us to see the world from a perspective different than our own. Since I was young I have been enamored with all kinds of stories. Everything from love stories to tragedies has been a major influence in my life and how I capture the world. I believe that inside of all of us there is a story waiting to be heard, my lifework is to capture that story. For me, photographing in a creative shoot, lifestyle or of people is more than taking pictures. It is getting to know the person or work, learning the backstory and studying what made it into what it is today. I want to capture an authentic moment with each individual. It allows me to capture the heart of life, vulnerable moments, candid expressions, joy, pain, beauty and in my opinion the most important and deep meaning of love.
I want to see the world.
Show me your world.
Your life. Your story.
I want to capture it.
