• Hello there!

    I'm Janica, a Houston-based portrait photographer, and this is the JBO PHOTO blog. Here, you can check out my recent work, get the scoop on jbo photo sessions, and find out more (probably a LOT more) than you ever wanted to know about the day-to-day adventures of my quirky family.

    Thanks for stopping by...I hope you'll visit often!

Anniversaries are a wonderful time to celebrate our relationships.  There are many ways that we can show our loved ones how much we care, such as buying a nice gift, composing a heartfelt love letter, enjoying a romantic meal together…

Or you can just do what Kelsey did and have a jbo photo Beauty Session.

(Kelsey’s husband = BIG WINNER)

Kelsey, thank you so much for sharing your incredible beauty!

You are the hottest mama-of-three ever.

Happy anniversary.:)

I have some gushing to do.

Sam is one of my favorite people in the world.  He is a long-time, dear buddy of mine and is, in fact, responsible for the very existence of my little Boles family.  (see here)

So Sam is a pretty important guy in my life, and he has given me plenty of gut-busting chuckles over the years.  I could not have been more delighted when he introduced us to Shelby.  Not only is Shelby just plain stunning, but she proved she was fully capable of hanging with Sam’s silliness.  Folks, these two are a perfect match.  Wedding bells rang (ohhhh, good times, good times), and a house and a Dooley dog later, the Moore Family was in full effect.


The winking dog.  Do I even have to tell you how ridiculously adorable this is??

And now, ladies and gentlemen, Sam and Shelby are having a BABY!!

(psst.  it’s a girl.) 

 Samuel Ledesma Moore.  Look what you DID.

Gorgeous, gorgeous lady.

Perfect.  You guys are just perfect.

Baby Girl Moore is so lucky to have such beautiful and hilarious parents.  But that doesn’t mean she’ll be funny-looking.  Not a chance.

Love you, my fun friends!  Can’t wait to meet her.

Love all of the texture in these photos! And I know it’s hot like FIRE in TX! She should be commended for doing an outdoor session in the heat (pregnant, summertime, and not a drop of sweat either – hot mama!)

My best friend’s baby.

There’s just something kind of special about  that.

I finally, finally got to meet little miss Reese and she did not disappoint.  I brought my kids and I brought Chick-Fil-A…the camera was really an afterthought.  But too good I stuck it in my bag because baby, she’s a natural.

I love you Alicia, and I’m already crazy about sweet Reese, too.  Can’t wait to see you all again.
