Introducing Rooted & Wild

We are two generations of mothers inspired by the women who give their families roots while raising their children wild. You can find us on the shores of Dyes Inlet in Bremerton, WA with a camera in hand and flowers in our arms.

The paradox of beauty: Some things are pretty because they are fleeting (flowers) and some things are pretty because they are forever (photographs) we want to capture your story using both. Let us adorn you in flowers and capture your love  (love for your family, love for your lover, love for yourself)

We create portraits on our magical property, in your laughter filled home, or in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest.

A little about each of us.

Janelle. Matriarch. Queen of the flowers. Makes everything around her beautiful. She is our session stylist. She will put together floral installations and help you decide on clothing.

Kiana. Portrait artist. Moon gazer (light chaser). New mother. She will use her camera to show you the truth (which is, of course, that you are beautiful, that your love for your family is sacred, that nothing is more important then the moment you are living right now.)

What we will photograph: families, children, babies, lovers, mothers, fathers, grandparents, doggies, life. Big moments and small.

A little about flowers.  We love to incorporate the beauty of nature in our photography. We delight in nestling newborns in fresh blooms, capturing toddlers peeking out from a meadow or creating entire floral installations for your family session. We offer photography and florals for family portrait sessions and packages for small intimate weddings or romantic elopements as well.

To celebrate we have put together an amazing Launch Giveaway! You could win a free session, twenty digital files, and an heirloom album with your photos. We will draw a winner Labor Day weekend. Details on how to enter can be found here:

All photos in this blog post were taken at our secret garden studio in Bremerton, WA by Joy Prouty.

We are now booking late summer through fall, contact us to get yours on the calendar. We would be honored to photograph you.

    This is so exciting! Kiana is one of the most talented photographers I have ever met with an eye for finding the magic in the seemingly ordinary. And her mom, Janelle has a way with flowers that will remind you of all that is right and beautiful with the world. I seriously cannot day enough about this wonderful pairing and excited to see all they create!
