A Little About Me

Hello, my name’s Janel (Nelly). I’ve been a photographer for a number of years now and I absolutely love what I do, can’t think of anything better. In my free time I also enjoy painting in both traditional and digital mediums. I live and work in the Antelope Valley of California, home of beautiful vast deserts, captivating sunsets and of course, the California Poppy Fields, our state flower.
Stay up to date on my latest work.

My Favorite Quote

“but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on the wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Isaiah 40:31.
