If you are here you are might considering to hire me as your photographer. I couldn’t be happier! Thanks for visiting my work, dear world! Please, feel yourself at home!

I’m Andrea Janes, married, mother of two kids and currently based in Utrecht, Netherlands. I worked many years in the field of Graphic, Web Design and Art Direction in agencies, in São Paulo (Brazil), Birmingham (UK), Frankfurt (Germany) and in Vienna (Austria). I studied Industrial Design in college and that was my first contact with Photography.

It was when we moved abroad that Photography revived in my life. After my kids were born I had to slow down my design workload, but focused by improving my photography skills and the art of post processing. I have to say that it’s a ‘never ending’ process of learning and that I love so much.

When in the University, I felt really comfortable in the Photography Classes and loved the dark room and all the process of exposing the film to the light. Years passed and photography became a hobby that I could sometimes use in my design projects.

But it was when I hired a photographer to take my pregnancy pictures that fell in love with portraits.

I had my camera with me all day! I participated in workshops, classes and projects. I was invited by Getty Images (the biggest bank stock photos) to be a collaborator. It was in Paris that people started asking me to take their Family/Children/Newborn pictures. I can’t really tell how smooth this all started. Style comes with time. It’s a process we can’t rush.

I tend to think that I navigate between Lifestyle Photography and a little bit of Documentary. I love natural light and spontaneity. I explore new techniques when photographing my own children and when succeeded I bring it to my client sessions. I love post processing as well. I’m unable to use a single filter to move forward when editing a photo and I will probably attention to details with the sensibility I would like to get if I were the client.

While I guide you through the best light and spots, I capture events as they are unfolding and that brings your soul into it. There won’t be any Photo Session like any other just because you and your family are unique. This is my white canvas starting to pop in colours and personality and it can make me quite emotional to be able to give you and your family photos to be treasured for generations.

The session fee includes a pre-session consultation and tips on what to wear and location. Feel free to tell me all your ideas!
