Welcome to Kelly Janssen Photography

Welcome to my blogsite! Here you will find some information on how to commission photographic art, as well as samples of my work.

Kelly Janssen Photography is located on Anna Maria Island, FL and specializes in capturing your spirit and documenting it in art. We focus primarily on maternity, newborn, child, and family photographic art.

Kelly Janssen Photography tends to attract clients who are in search of a unique and specialized look. We may not be the best fit if you are looking for a quick session simply to photograph what your child looks like at this age. We are a much stronger match for clients who are looking to capture and display the essence of their child or family.

Mother and Child Beach Photography

June 28, 2014

One of my favorite types of sessions to shoot are the mother and child photography sessions. I love capturing the tender peaceful moments of motherhood. I know all too well that these moments often get us through the difficult and chaotic ones. On this particular evening, the sunset was stunning. This particular mama has my respect. She joyfully embraces each day…challenges and the victories.

“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” – Agatha Christie

Anna Maria Island Beach Photography {Sisters}

June 28, 2014

Anna Maria Island is so beautiful, and provides many hidden location gems. I tend to chase the light and find these little spots of sunshine. This session is meant to showcase the bond between sisters. It also shows how the same location can be photographed in two very different ways.

Anna Maria Island {Florida Child Beach Photography}

June 11, 2014

Here is a quick image share of a recent child session on the beach. Anna Maria Island offers countless opportunities to photograph children against stunning backdrops. Our sunsets do not get more beautiful than this :) The photographs were taken on the north end of the island in Anna Maria City.

Anna Maria Island Photographer {Beach Photography Florida}

April 22, 2014

I will be starting a new category for the blog! I often have families asking questions about some activities to do in the area, what to do if it rains, local wildlife spotting, etc… I have decided to slowly but surely tackle this subject on my blog. Once a week (at least) I will do my best to feature a particular island feature, restaurant, activity, etc….

Enjoy a beautiful newborn sneak peek as well!

Yay! I am finally getting back to things after my recent maternity leave. I added one more sweet little boy to our home. Here are a few photos of what I have been doing on my break. So incredibly happy to raise one more little islander.

Anna Maria Island Photographer {Beach Family Photography}

Kelly Janssen Photography-an Anna Maria Island photographer

I so enjoy photographing families who travel to this beautiful area for their family vacation. I also so enjoy documenting the way in which a family interacts with one another, as well as the environment. This particular evening we were squeezing in as many shots as possible before the evening storms rolled in, but we were able to capture some beautiful moments.

Anna Maria Island Photographer {Beach Senior Photography}

September 25, 2013

Anna Maria Island is a beautiful back drop for photography of any kind. On a recent evening, I photographed a Manatee High School senior on the beach. As a resident of Anna Maria Island, I am aware of some gorgeous hidden gems all located near the water. Many times a backdrop of greenery can provide a nice compliment to the standard beach images.

Anna Maria Vacation Photographer

This gorgeous family has a lot to celebrate. A recent move to an island paradise, an anniversary, a recent birthday, and two beautiful children. It is so nice to live and photograph in this paradise. I love to capture the connections that are weaved between mother and child, father and mother, children and their environment.

Anna Maria Island photographer {Children}

The beautiful soft, white sands of Anna Maria Island are crowded during the summer days with families. Children play in tidal pools, and splash in the small waves. Families experience a throw back to the old Florida days with unspoiled beaches. Summer nights bring turtle walks lit only by the moon. A lucky few will see a turtle lay her eggs, or perhaps a nest hatch. This stunning barrier island is the perfect backdrop for some gorgeous smiling children.

I spent some time with these stunning children one summer evening. I enjoyed watching them interact with each other. We had a beautiful sunset and clear skies, which led to some incredible images. Children and the beach, what could be better? This is one of many reasons I so love to be an Anna Maria Island photographer. Enjoy these few images from that evening.
