Meet Our Team:

Janet Melo-Thaiss, Owner and Lead Photographer: My work has taken me in some exciting directions. Though I’ve always loved photography, I’ve been working as a university and college instructor for the past ten years. As a teacher, I work to ensure that my students achieve the highest expression of their unique talents. Now in a new adventure, I am bringing together my extensive experience as an award-winning professor to my work as a creative photographer. Taken together my coaching and creative skills will help individuals to craft an authentic brand that shines. For a few years now I’ve had the idea of starting my own studio, and I’m finally making that dream come true. As a photographer, my goal is to make you feel comfortable and at ease when we’re in the studio. The hope is that our in-home studio will make your experience with JMT Studios more personal and relaxing.

Jasmine Melo-Thaiss, Photo Assistant and Editor: As an employee at JMT Studios, I work in the studio behind the scenes. Though I am not myself a photographer, I do most of the editing work in Adobe Photoshop to ensure that your photos are top-notch quality.
