“Photography is a way of Feeling, of Touching, of Loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…It remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind

I am a Rochester-based photographer that specializes in capturing your stories. From engagement to wedding, maternity to senior photo, I want to be there to capture all the memories and milestones you will have.

 I would love to become not just your family photographer, but a family friend that can tell your story through unique photos and experiences. I want to help you capture your family’s proudest moments through my lens allowing you to relive them over and over again when you view the photographs we take together.

Jolana spent a few fun hours working with my daughter on her senior photos. She made the whole process so easy. We all got into it, tagging along and enjoying the fun, creative, easy energy that Jolana generated. My shy senior girl relaxed and became very engaged with Jolana and the whole process. The result is stunning – gorgeous photos we will cherish for ever!

Jolana is great to work with, she brings a great energy to her photoshoots. She comes up with great ideas on the fly and explores those avenues to come up with some magical shots. We had planned out a number of the photos I wanted but some of the best ones were the unplanned, improvised ones. I knew she was talented but I was still blown away by the results!
