OMG!!! Jean is amazing. She is so talented and captured so many aspects of who we are wrapped up in one amazing photo session. This is a must experience.



The definition of the best. Jean is both passionate for her company, and as skillful as it gets when it comes to photography. The knowledge and expertise she has in the photo industry, is something very hard to come by. Not to mention the hospitality and connection she creates with her clients is world class.

Jean does an incredible job getting her clients to relax during their photo session which allows her to capture their natural beauty.



I love my new photos! Thank-you for such a wonderful experience. It was time to update headshots for work and for my nonprofit volunteer service. I decided to splurge and get some fun lifestyle shots too! Jean was amazing to work with on this shoot. I am so happy that I did the photos with her. She partners with Makeup by Debbie Verver for all hair and makeup for the photo shoot. It was so nice to live like a celebrity for the day.



I wanted a non-standard headshot for my business and Jean listened and delivered! I can't believe how fantastic it turned out, it clearly showcases my personality but still looks professional. She had to work in a prop (my fascinator) and my nails and the result is FANTASTIC.



Jean is such an amazingly talented photographer. I loved our shoot! She made me feel so comfortable with her and I really appreciated all of her tips to prepare for the big day and helpful directions while posing during our session. She really knows what she's doing and is a true professional! Jean is a wonderful woman with great energy and is just a delight to be around!



This is probably the best photo of me I've ever seen, thank you so much, Jean!



Being with Jean is an amazing experience! She makes you feel so relaxed as she asks you to change your pose, or checks your jewelry or moves a hair out of your eyes. My husband enjoyed watching and felt special that he could watch all the photos being taken and we were both thrilled to see our finished portraits! Thank you Jean Laninga Portraits!



I truly believe that if someone has the gift of really seeing through the lens with emotion and looking for more than a picture, then it shows up in the photography. It is very obvious in your photographs that you are one of those people. You see the essence of a person and transform it into something tangible.



I had such an amazing time getting my portraits done with you and your stylist - you both made me feel completely pampered for Mother's Day! Your stylist did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. You made me feel so comfortable from the very beginning with the consultation, that we just had fun with the session. I am completely reserved and insecure, but with your fun professionalism I was able to really open up and we made great photos because of it. It was such a wonderful experience!



You made our first studio portrait session with the children so positive! Your warm, relaxed demeanor immediately put my kids at ease and set the tone for a fun, low stress experience. You did an amazing job of capturing their personalities in such a natural way - our portraits are gorgeous!



I gave my husband the album last week for our anniversary and he absolutely LOVED it...even more than I thought he would! He said it was the best gift he has ever been given and was completely surprised by it. Thank you for doing such an amazing job and helping me give my husband such a special gift. I, as well, will treasure these photos for the rest of my life!

I had a wonderful experience with Jean. She took every step to make sure the session went smoothly and to ensure my utmost comfort. I absolutely loved working with her and would snag the opportunity to work with her again in a heartbeat. She was able to capture tasteful images and get them edited in an extremely reasonable amount of time and does a stellar job. Love her!



It's almost Springtime. Love yourself, or love someone else by giving her a gift to love herself with a photo shoot with Jean Laninga. Jean knows how to bring out the Loving YOU. Whatever the look...glamour...sexy....light....Jean finds your comfort zone to love yourself at any age and most importantly she makes it fun! Thanks Jean for getting me out of my safe, secluded zone.



Oh my goodness I love the pictures! They are so fun and fresh! Jean totally captured so many of the boys' expressions that are unique to them. I love how real and authentic the pictures are! We had so much fun looking at them this morning! Ahhh so many favs- I can't even name them all!! :) Thank you for the awesome work!!



Absolutely LOVE Jean and her work! She's so flexible and fun to shoot with! I would shoot with her every day if I could!



- I had some AMAZING new headshots taken with ultra-talented portrait photographer, Jean Laninga. Plus she snuck in some super glamorous shots, too. *gasp!* 



 I love what you do! You took up quite the challenge with me, and you nailed it! So many people told me so! Thank you, Jean! You took fear and turned it inside out and her personality made me feel at ease and "natural." She was such a joy to work with! I've had this face for a long time and had NEVER felt this comfortable in front of the camera!



I'm going crazy over these! This woman is pure talent. Shouting thank you so much to Jean. If you are wondering I totally cried during this shoot! So happy to have portraits with my sweet and beautiful momma!
