• 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!

A Boles Family Portrait

Sigh. I think it’s time we call in a professional.

Plane ticket and a beer and I’m there! ;) Y’all are cute no matter what.

LOL! I know…I wish it was easy to photograph our own family!

Spit and Polish

…and we’re back!

I thought that I could stand to do some freshening up here at jbo photo, and so a few days ago, I decided to tackle the blog.  A nip here, a tuck there, and here’s where we ended up!  What do you think?  I’d love to hear your feedback.  I am no longer going to use the jbo photo website, so you can now find session information, photo galleries, and other goodies right here on the blog!

I have a couple of sessions to share coming up soon, so stay tuned.  In the meantime, poke around on the menu above and see what’s new!

And since there aren’t nearly enough photos on this blog (or any blog!) of grown men racing children’s toys:

I love the new background! I was pretty fond of the “old” site, but I do like the makeover.

Where are the boys racing their toys? Doesn’t look much like Texas…

robin cornettJanuary 25, 2010 - 1:10 pm

LOVE it! Everything is looking great! I hope the men let the kids play at least once…

You sure do shine up nicely :) Blog make-over is lovely…I really like the new background, as well as the slideshow at the top…nice work!

Aww I really like this. You sure do clean up nice. I love the fact that Matt looks like he is having fun and playing around, and Greg looks die hard serious!

Heather (heathergw)January 26, 2010 - 8:02 am

GORGEOUS!!!! Love the pics too, too fun!

JessicaJanuary 26, 2010 - 8:24 am

Love it! I’ve been wanting to freshen up mine too….I just suck at it. I would love to do that scrolling pic thing at the top. Good job, girl!

The Barnes Family

EVERYONE loves the Barnes family.:D


What’s not to love?

Mom and Dad Barnes, you did good.


First of all, there’s the delightful Megan and her charming Nate.  Megan’s gorgeous face (and perfectly pregnant belly!) have appeared on the blog before…


Stella is a big sister now!


Look who’s outta the belly!  It’s Sam!



And then there’s Seth. From high school and beyond, Seth’s always been “Class Favorite”.  He’s just that kind of guy.  Lucky for him, he ended up finding a favorite of his own – the lovely Michelle.


Annie is all sugar and spice…maybe a little heavy on the spice.;) Work it, little miss!


Luke!  With those eyes, and his little streak of mischief, he’s got it made in the shade.






See what I mean?  Now you love the Barnes family too…don’t you?
(told you so)
