Family, Wedding and Personal Branding photographer and creative digital designer serving fun-loving, ambitious entrepreneurs.

Your visual vibe attracts your tribe


They talk you up to people and about what you do for them (or don’t do!) They ask all the questions about who you are + what you do and how to do this that and the other.

With your passion for YOUR BIZ and YOUR FAMILY and my eye for design (plus years of experience), we’ll whip your brand, website or online presense into shape to show off what you do best.  


Hi, I’m Janel



And if you’re reading these words, you’ve probably tried to DIY together a photo shoot or web design on your own. (go on, admit it!)

Now you have a headache, a stack of inspirational Pinterest quotes and boards you’ve been obsessively revisiting, and a half a mind to swear off this entrepreneur business thing anyway!


  • I am a 4 on the Enneagram scale and never do anything by halves + lives by my whole heart and soul. Haven’t taken the test?? Take it and share your results with me!

  • Cherish my family more than anything but am often times horrible at expressing it and working on me everyday.

  • Could easily eat tacos for every single meal (and try to in way one or the other.)

  • Wildly obsessed with treating my body and brain what it needs to the BETTER version of boss lady every single day.

  • Went from college → fashion industry corporate → UX Design corporate → food industry corporate (freaking LOVED it) → CEO of my own design agency & studio.

  • Unrelentingly obsessed with helping you look as good as YOU ARE.


Hi! I’m Janel Gion

The graphic designer, photographer, and creative entrepreneur behind Janel Gion Photography and Design. I’m a small-tourist-town Sandpoint Idaho photographer, Web designer and obsessed with living my healthiest, happiest life with big dreams!

Currently obsessed with: living my best life, fueling my body & brain to be smarter and stronger every day, with my puppies, lake life and being the best Mom & Wife I can be! Keepin’ it real since 1979.




I am a wife and mother of 2 amazing littles, sister, daughter and proud Auntie. Based in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho,  have camera, will travel! Most days, you’ll find me working my own business, building something I’m so stinkin proud of and worked so hard to get here, shuttling kids and just living this crazy fun filled life!

I’m a photographer, a web designer, a certified FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coach and a obsessed with living clean living. I shoot with available light and meet my clients on location or bring them into my home studio. Working with me is fun, laid back and ultimately result in images and brand you can be excited to share with the world. The work we do together will be a team effort built on trust and creativity, brand loyalty and respect!

My photography & design style is… Authentic. Real. And Natural.

I’ll do nearly anything to make you laugh and make working with me fun! I like to keep it light and focus on those candid moments that naturally occur between people who love each other or are proud of their businesses and work, genuinely happy people! Win win for me! Years from now, I want you to look at the work we create together and have all of those memories come flooding back. If I can have anything to do with that smile on your face and a small success of your hard work, I have met my ultimate goals and fulfilled my why!

I have been a designer by trade for over 20 years after graduating from Washington State University with a BFA. Since then, I continue to run my side hustle turned FULL TIME career in helping entrepreneurs THRIVE.

I work with drive and determination and find thrills in learning about small business making a go at their passions and building a business they are excited about! My experience in user centric design serves me well in all aspects of my life and career! Learning about people and how the brain works and makes decisions is something I find truly fascinating! (and have come quite obsessed with) Behavior science, health and fitness are a huge part of my life and an ever growing chapter in my everyday and it is my ultimate goal to put to work all that I have learned from mentors and fellow entrepreneurs over time to inspire and be inspired to live the GOOD life!

Cause life is just too short, am I right? Now let’s get to work!


I believe we were created with specific gifts and abilities and they aren’t meant to be kept in secret. In fact, I believe we all benefit when these gifts and talents are shared!

It’s a blessing to do what I love every day to provide for my family AND help others in the process on my schedule and time.

Helping other people bring their dreams of owning a business and pursuing their passions on their own terms is one of my greatest joys. It’s an honor to share what I’ve learned with you and help you along in your entrepreneurial journey.
