Circle Slogan-01.png

I promise to be authentic. I promise to be honest to myself when creating work for you. I promise that I will show you what the world sees rather than what you see or don’t see on the outside. That you are truly beautiful, that the flaws that you think are giant ugly targets are actually unique and perfectly you, describing every incredible thing about you. You see frizzy hair, we see fabulous character. You see skinny legs, we see you running the distance. I promise to capture all those wonderful flaws and give you a new healthier perspective of yourself.


About me, professionally speaking


Janese Hockman Photography is insured, and licensed by the city of San Luis Obispo, and also approved by SLO County Schools who both require a criminal background check and finger printing. I am also an approved senior portrait photographer for San Luis Obispo High School, Mission College Prep, Arroyo Grande High School, Atascadero High School, Paso Robles High School, and Templeton High School.

I’ve also been featured in a few Senior magazines, won a couple awards and stuff, and have written articles on senior portraits that I’m pretty proud of. Ill post a few places I’ve been featured for you, just so you can see that I’m kinda legit, just saying. (wink, wink). Please don’t take me too seriously :)

Thoughtful Collections

each collection includes both digital and printed images. I don't believe in handing over a USB/CD/Online gallery and calling it good. I want you to touch and feel and look at your images every day. I believe in printing your images, not letting your CD collect dust in a drawer somewhere forgotten!


Senior sessions are a minimum of 1.5 hours on location shooting. We can go anywhere we have permission to be, and our central coast is blooming with killer locations.

Natural Retouching

You will not have plastic baby doll skin texture after your images are retouched. I believe in pores and freckles. I will not change your eye color to match the flowers or the sky. I will not over sharpen, over contrast, or over saturate your image either. I will polish it, and I will make it look finished. your welcome:)
