• 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!

We shot a rocket today…what did you do?:)

The following video was shot during the rocket’s maiden voyage.  Please note my panic and instant camera-drop in the moments following lift-off when I was 95% certain that the rocket was going to come crashing down on my daughter’s head.  Moments later, however, the parachute dislodged and the rocket drifted gracefully, and harmlessly, to the ground.  My triumphant “WHOA!” is when I realized we were in the clear.

Great to see the Christmas gift put into action!! Looks like you guys had fun!

Sylvia BorgoMarch 15, 2010 - 9:56 pm

Whheeeeee! How fun!

Micah + Sam

If you think that Micah and Sam appear to be a perfectly adorable couple…

…then you are 100% correct.

She’s the mac to his cheese. He’s the pb to her j.

And they’re getting MARRIED!

The future Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

A match made in….any guesses?;)

So THAT’S what warm and fuzzy looks like.

Micah and Sam, you crazy kids are just plain awesome together.

Micah is a brilliant artist and such a gentle, caring soul. She has this knack for making people feel at ease…she’s good company. Sam is a bit of a prodigy in the music department. He passionately serves as the Contemporary Music Director at Cypress Creek Christian Church and there are undoubtedly big things to come from this guy.

I have so much respect for people who truly GET each other…no frills necessary.:)You two are setting yourselves up for such a wonderful future together. I can’t wait to be a part of the beautiful celebration on April 9th!

What creative beautiful pictures. Sam and Micah turned a
warehouse district into a thing of beauty. Could it be love?

The last image is just darling of this cute couple!

[...] a barter for some of her amazing artwork, how could I say no?  I was in.  We knocked out a super-fun engagement session, and began the countdown to the big [...]


What’s cookin’, good lookin’?

Oh wait, I know!  It’s my NIECE, Karli!!

Sweet Keri, motherhood looks goooood on you.

I cannot wait to meet this baby.  And I’m not the only one.:)

Aunt Janica.

I like it.

I can’t believe that in a few short months my baby brother Brandon will be a Daddy.  (and a GOOD one, too!)  Keri’s baby shower was last weekend and she drove allllll the way down from Lubbock.  After the pink wrapping paper was all shredded, the last sip of sherbet punch was slurped, and the final group of chattering ladies made their way out of the door, we were able to grab a few quick shots of her perfectly adorable belly bump.  Next time I see my dear sister-in-law, baby Karli will be hanging out in Keri’s ARMS!  I am giddy with anticipation.  Keri, Brandon, and little Karli, I love you to infinity and back!

P.S.  Will you just get a load of this cake from the shower??  My friend Angie is an absolute cake-making dynamo.  If you need a cake, and want it to be fabulous, send her an email: angielindquist@yahoo.com
