• 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!

The Rhoads Family

What’s up, dogs?


Oh Paulie, I cannot begin to handle that level of pug cuteness.


Jonathan and Paulie – the men of the house.  And Abby and Sarah holding it down for the ladies.


These four just work.



But if you think they look good as a foursome, check ‘em out when they become a party of two!

Helloooooo, hotties!


Sarah.  Gorgeous.  Seriously.






The lovely Sarah is best buddies with Lisha, who married the lucky Skeet, who I went to church camp with as a kid.  Got that?

You can see their adorable family here.

There is a third amigo in their group of friends, Jen, who I get to meet next month for her family pictures.  Hooray for friends sharing photographers!

Sarah and Jonathan, it was FUN!  I loved spending a ridiculously humid evening with you and your precious pups.  I will admit to a twinge of jealousy as I got a peek at your incredibly cool Midtown lifestyle.  I struggle occasionally with the whole suburban chic thing.  :)

Here’s hoping our paths cross again…because I think they crossed quite nicely this first time.

Oh, love these pics! The dogs *almost* steal the show but not quite. I really love the one with the sun coming in from the right and they’re just hugging (the next to last one). Even though you can’t see their faces. I just like it.

I absolutely LOVE this photo session! You did an amazing job! They are a pretty cute couple. Love the colors.

[...] a treat to see Sarah [...]

I am…


The next few months are going to be crazy-busy here at jbo photo and I LOVE it!  I am now officially booked through the end of 2009.

Please contact me to schedule your 2010 session!

Hi Janica! I contacted you earlier this year and told you that we had purchased one of your photo session packages at a benefit auction and that we would be interested in doing a session later this year. Well it’s later and I just got on here to contact you and saw that you are booked. (oh no!) I guess we could schedule something for the begining of the year…please let me know your availability. I am interested in getting family pictures taken of my daughter (Audrey), my husband (Bryan) and myself done outdoors in a natural setting. (I was really looking forward to doing some fall pictures around Thanksgiving…bummer!) Anyway, please let me know what is the earliest slots you have open in 2010. Thanks a bunch!
