I am full of energy and may squeal like a kid on Christmas morning. Life is so full of surprises and excitement; I choose to celebrate every moment of it.

I grew up on a farm, the youngest of 8 kids. To this day, I live my life in the kind of small towns where everyone knows your name. Beautiful places where work ethic is strong, neighbors wave to each other, and kids play in the street without a care in the world.

My parents are a Godly example of what I want my own marriage to be: full of laughter, support, memories, and loving each other even during hard times.

Loyalty and commitment are two words that I strive to live by.

I believe that laughter is not only sexy, but the perfect remedy for nearly everything.

My bucket list includes visiting every state; I want to celebrate the people and stunning landscapes across our incredible country.

On my own time, I love to watch Friends or Greys Anatomy, be outside, spend time with friends/family, or curl up with a good book with an iced coffee in hand.


I specialize in boudoir and maternity/portrait photography in South Dakota/Iowa.

I believe that woman can be strong, fearless, confident, and sexy. . .every woman, every body, and yes, even small town gals from Iowa.

I LOVE to travel by plane or by car and am available across the states for your next session!

If you haven’t yet, please follow me on Instagram @jranae_photography and Facebook, where I share photos of the incredible people I have worked with so far.
