About Janna Dixon Photography...

Hey there, I’m Janna…

A fun and friendly Wedding, Newborn and Lifestyle photographer. After ten years living in beautiful New Zealand, I’ve just moved my family back home to Cornwall.

Most days you can find me in jeans and a checked shirt, working on the sofa with a smile on my face, balancing an enormous cat (Mack) in my lap!  I am a wife to my gorgeous kiwi husband Antony.  A mother to my two babies, a lover of the ridiculous, a polaroid artist, a storyteller and a woman who always has her bags packed.  We only have one life, I believe in making it count, keeping it real and showing off my terrible dance moves.

"Don’t hurry. Don’t worry. You’re only here for a short visit. So don’t forget to stop and smell the roses."

- Walter Hagen

I’m an outdoors kinda gal...

Utterly addicted to Tea, natural light, books, films and good music – the louder the better!  Red wine on a cold night or a nice buttery Chardy on a sunny afternoon.  Especially if enjoyed with family and friends.

I am awed by the kindness of strangers.

My photography style is raw, real and authentic.  I’ll do anything to make you laugh and I will document the beauty, truth and joy in your relationships.  I make it simple for you, keep it light, and focus on the precious, candid moments that naturally occur between people who not only love each other, but genuinely like one another.

I want you to look at these moments years from now and have all of the bliss and happiness come flooding back.

These are your memories, I want you to remember these days.

My Favourite Studio...

Of all, is the great outdoors!

Mackerel skies, hayfields and sand dunes are my favourite backgrounds. Natural light is the real thing.  I can emulate it when it’s not around, but when it is, there’s no substitute for its beauty.

The clouds are the best soft box I could never buy and Mother Nature reigns supreme when it comes to mixing a mean palate of colour.

There is a big, beautiful world out there and I like to use it. But I can totally work a studio too.


My Approach...

In all of my years behind the lens, my own personal style of photography has evolved along with my love of portraiture.

My photography has a dual approach: I shoot candidly when I can, capturing all of the spontaneous, un-posed moments.

But I can also direct portraiture and set up people into a beautiful shot and then move away and let people relax with the interaction happen naturally whilst I photograph away.

My Photography...

This way of working was something that came from my photojournalism background.

A need to express many elements of a story in one simple, perfectly composed image.

I find this approach works really well, especially with family shoots, little ones don’t usually want to sit still and grin at the camera!

We get a really good scope of pictures of everyone!
