Hi, I am Jana

Welcome to my page. I hope that you browse my portfolio and connect on social media to get inspired. I have been a photography lover since early high school years and when my hobby developed into a career more then fifteen years ago I never looked back.

I love both the city and the country having grown up in Prague and on my grandparents’ farm. I currently live in Kennett Square, PA with my goofy Golden, two noisy yorkies, stealthy orange cat and two grey horses. Traveling is my hobby so don’t hesitate to contact me about documenting your event or project anywhere in the world.

My style is full of elegance and sophistication. I hope to make each location and event look the absolute best. Outstanding images are created based on trust, careful planning, vision and communication. I collaborate with each couple to document moments and subjects in a way that can make everyone remember the way they felt. I love designing beautiful, high quality albums so that the moments and feelings can be remembered for years to come. I feel fulfilled when I have delivered an unforgettable, positive experience and a timeless album filled with artistic images full of intimate moments and beautiful portraits.

I create a custom collection for each couple and event. I love when couples are able to decide what is most important on the wedding day and how to showcase the moments. Please contact me to discuss your wedding day details. I love meeting in person over a cup of coffee.


Let’s face it, family portraits can be a nerve wrecking experience for parents. Capturing images of your children as children brings me great joy and I do promise that your photographs will turn out.

What to Expect

A relaxed session that will capture your children, pets, and families as they really are – full of life and energy. Looking at photographs that I have captured will warm your heart whether you are looking at them soon after the session or years later, they will make you remember moments and smiles that mean the whole world to you.

Where do we take photos?

I work throughout the DE, MD, and PA tri-state area. Children and families are the most relaxed when they are in a familiar and interesting environment. For that reason, I like to work in and around your home and in local parks. Some of my favorite locations are Longwood Gardens, Enchanted Woods at Winterthur, Gibraltar Gardens, Valley Garden Park, or the Brandywine Park. Suggestions and creativity is always welcome

What do we wear?

Matching outfits are not what my style of photography is all about, so wear whatever makes you you. However coordinating colors and styles usually work best for family photos. Expressing your children’s personalities through their outfits will make you remember who they were at the time. So what if their socks don’t match?!

What if children don't want to cooperate?

Children are children and they may be shy or they may get upset during the session. I will take the time to play and connect with your children. If they are having fun, children will smile with delight, so let them play and be themselves during a photo session. Photos captured during this unforced, dynamic time will be your favorites.

Commercial Photography

Whether your company needs a few refreshing head shot images or a full brand remodel, I enjoy the process of creating a vision and completing a session to get your brand noticed and website and promotional materials looking modern and fresh with top quality photography. Website and social media presence is your introduction to clients. Invest in making your fist impression the best it can possibly be.
