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.


NelliesArtWorks, your Antelope Valley children and family photographer. We specialize in maternity, newborn, babies, children and families.
We also love lifestyle photography – capturing your family’s everyday life and love. We work with you to be sure that the process of photography doesn’t overshadow or overwhelm you. Whether you love to pose, or are terribly camera shy, we want to be sure you have as much fun in front of our cameras as we have behind them.
