Welcome to VisuallySpeaking Photography!

My name is Janaye. I’m a graphic designer and a self-taught photographer with a degree in graphic design. I was raised in a little place called Mount Dora in Lake County and have lived in Gainesville, FL and Austin, TX but now call Orlando my home!

I’ve always had a passion for photography. I remember asking for a “real” camera every christmas since I was 10 and finally managed to get my first DSLR (Nikon D40) at 17 for my college photography class. Since then I’ve been taking photos non-stop!

I believe photography should be more than just pretty pictures – it should tell a story. That story could be just you, your family, an event or a milestone. My job as your photographer is to capture those moments that tell the most important story of all: your story.
