I understand that! 

You want quality and you want affordable.

I want that for you, too!

I believe in the importance of the printed photo and the legacy that they leave behind for future generations! 

I want to work with you to find the right combination of printed photos for your home, office, grandparents, or whatever your needs are! 

I won't just hand you a bunch of digital negatives and disappear, I will work with you to create wall art, photo collections, albums, and more to fit your needs.  I will also provide you with jpg files suitable for Internet sharing and posting.  

And I will guarantee that you will not only be happy with your portraits, but THRILLED with them or I will refund your money!

Call me to talk about your family photo needs!



"I absolutely loved my sons 3 year old photo session with Jane! She captured Jackson's personality and love of trains perfectly! I really love her candid style!"

"We could not be more pleased with the photo shoot and pictures with our boys. If you want pictures with your fur babies, contact Jane Ballard Photography...Jane Ann did an amazing job keeping the boys entertained and looking at the camera, this wasn't an easy task with our kids. She captured the very essence of our little family and created lasting memories with the printed results. Thank you Jane, the boys can't wait for their next session!"

“Jane is super fun to work with. She understands how to manipulate the lighting to create a perfect picture. I had a blast trying new and different techniques to create photo like the one with the fabric draped around me. I loved working with Jane Ballard and can’t wait for another chance to do it again.”

One minute, you're welcoming a new baby into the world and celebrating your parents' 40th wedding anniversary.  Then, it seems like just the very next minute, your child is graduating from high school and your parents are living in a retirement community in Florida. 

What happened?  Did you blink?  Where did that time go?

What did you do over the years to preserve those memories? 

You took Photographs!

Flipping through the pages of a photo album brings back a flood of memories.  Just think of the emotion you feel when you see little Susie in her first grade Halloween costume that your mother made for her.  Or little Danny's first tee ball game.  Or grandmother's 80th birthday party!

These are the memories that you want to share for generations to come! 

Photographs ARE the memories that you can share with others! 

Photographs keep those memories fresh!

Are you ready to make memories? I can help you capture and print life's special times and events. 

Birthdays, graduations, engagements - special monumental times in your life

Let's preserve those memories together and print them for your children's children!
