“My husband and I are introverted and not super comfortable in front of a camera, but Janelle was able to help us relax and offered some great prompts. I can't recommend her enough!

Lesley and Divyesh:

I completely understand how you feel when you're in front of the camera.  I've personally discovered that the best way to show up to is to be completely  yourself, to laugh, and to try something new. I can help! When you're letting me do the work, you'll realize that you really are as beautiful as I'm telling you.

(p.s. I'll have the photos to prove it!)
