Q+A with Janelle Carpenter, Photographer
Q. Tell us about yourself, what do you do?
A. My name is Janelle and my wonderful growing side hustle is janellecarpentercreative, my photography and videography business. With working full time, I wanted to keep my photography passion alive. I decided to officially launch janellecarpentercreative.com in December of 2018 and have been warmly received by many clients. The business has quickly evolved from an archive of my work to a steady stream of clients trusting me with their projects and memories.
Q. Other than photography, what else interests you?
A. I grew up thriving on music and art so I’m always interested in bringing the arts to others, kids especially! I am also very much an explorer and you will usually find me walking around Mimico enjoying the weather or shopping for records at the local vinyl shop.
Q. What kind(s) of photography do you shoot?
A. I mainly focus on portraits so whether that be new headshots for a growing performer or engagement photos, I try to fill my portfolio with everything.
Q. How can people book a session with you?
A. You can find me on instagram @janellecarpentercreative or contact me through my website at janellecarpenter.com. I am always game for new projects and collaborations!
Q. How long have you lived in Mimico and what do you love most about living here?
A. I moved here 21 years ago from downtown Toronto. I thought I would miss the hustle and bustle, but over the years, I have been able to watch Mimico grow with local businesses and community events. I have lived and worked in the community for so long that I usually catch up with someone in the area while out running errands. I love the people here! They have made this community so fun to be a part of and I’m happy to do my part in making it a great place to live.
