Hi! I'm Janelle! Thanks for being here!
I am a Winnipeg native with a love of her camera, thrift stores and coffee.
When I'm not photographing your session, I can be found watching Friends on repeat and wishing that Chandler Bing existed in real life.
In the spring of 2017 I graduated from the University of Manitoba with my Bachelor of Commerce and am currently utilizing that to help me run this business!
Here are 5 fun facts about me:
about Alice & Flore Studios
I've been a member of the Winnipeg Photography scene since 2014 and have spent the last three and a half years learning all that I can, meeting some of the best people in this industry and photographing people and their stories.
My time in university caused me to put this passion on the back-burner and now I'm happy to be here in full force!
The type of shoots that I'm best experienced in are weddings, portraits, family sessions & corporate.
My hope as I continue to explore my art, is to dive into more content creation for local businesses and entrepreneurs!
Why Alice & Flore?
Who's Alice? Who's Flore? Why is your name Janelle?
Fabulous questions. Let me explain.
Alice was born in the small town of Canora, Saskatchewan in the year 1920. In 1937, she married her soul mate Mike and together they raised a family of 9 children. Alice spent her days raising their family, cooking more traditional Ukrainian food than anyone could ever need, gardening and helping out on her family's farm.
Over 500 km away, and 7 years earlier, Flore was born in St. Malo, Manitoba. In 1930, she married Emilien and true to French-Catholic form gave birth to 15 beautiful children. She spent her days making a full, beautiful life for her children with the limited resources that she and Emilien had.
I'm very proud to call Alice & Flore my grandmothers.
Baba (Alice) passed away just 4 years ago in Canora and my beautiful Memere (Flore) passed away when I was 4 years old.
I didn't know either of them perfectly, my Baba aged a lot as I got older and I was too young when Memere passed away but I find their legacy in my parents and my family.
I am honoured to be renaming my business (formerly Janelle Lafantaisie Photography) to Alice & Flore Studios. I'm so proud to be renaming in honour of these two beautiful, strong women who have gone before me and laid out a path for me. I believe that they watch over me and I hope that they look down on me proudly.
My entire purpose in this business is to provide you with lifetime memories.
I strive to ensure that your memories, family heirlooms, legacy, and those things that mean the most to you is captured in my work.
