Hello and welcome, I'm Janet McMillan, a professional photographer with 20+ years of experience serving clients in the greater Milwaukee area. I specialize in brand and lifestyle portraiture, and corporate and non-profit events such as galas, fundraisers, summits, and festivals. My affable nature and down to earth attitude create a relaxed experience for everyone in front of my camera. I work in an unobtrusive style with a keen eye for details and the ability to capture candid moments naturally. These attributes plus my editing expertise and ability to see flattering light allow me to create beautiful, timeless, connected photos you'll treasure for years to come.


I am so very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with these special clients over the years: Milwaukee Brewers, Penfield Children's Center, Milwaukee Jewish Federation, Women's March, Associated General Contractors, Simpleview Inc., Employ Milwaukee, Hmong American Peace Academy (HAPA), Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Gener8tor, OnRamp, Milwaukee Public Library, Highland Community School, WRTP/Big Step, Milwaukee Business Journal, Five Star Professional, Midwest Energy Research Consortium (M-WERC), Milwaukee Admirals, Coakley Brothers, Black Arts Fest MKE, and Exceptional Events to name a few, as well as my many private clients! I also enjoyed working as the photographer for the book, 111 Places in Milwaukee That You Must Not Miss, written and researched by the talented and humorous Michelle Madden. Our book is part of the 111 Places series published by Emons Verlag GmbH. Please consider gifting our love letter (in words and photos) to yourself or another Milwaukee fan.


I also enjoy studying, practicing, and teaching the Indian Vedic Science of Ayurveda and work as an Ayurveda Health Counselor. I'm a certified coach in Quantum Human Design and merge the science of Ayurveda and Human Design at Axis Mundi Coaching. I was a sprint distance triathlete for 10 years and coached the Highland Honeys, a racing team for women from 2010-2019. I never miss the Milwaukee Film Festival or Milwaukee Irish Fest and my favorite Kopp's custard flavor is Bienenstichkuchen! I heart Montessori education, $5 original art from Art-o-Mat machines (you can visit the only one in Milwaukee at the St. Kate, Arts Hotel) and love being a tourist in my beloved and beautiful MKE. I'm a mama of 2 teens and constantly learning how to be a better human from them. I share Betty Loves Freddie lip balm at portrait sessions and can happily talk about Ayurveda lifestyle benefits and branding via archetypes all day. Ask me questions about any of the above or schedule a consultation for a deeper exploration of your identity through portrait or event photography. I look forward to helping you make photos you'll love and treasure and want to pass on for generations to enjoy.
