We had the good fortune of connecting with Jannae Chester and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jannae, how do you define success?
My definition of success is accomplishing goals that I set out for myself and just being happy with what I’m doing. Also knowing that my work will bring happiness to others.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My work is mostly candids of my clients. I always like to change it up for each client by giving them different poses. I like to capture their beauty and personality. Also I love to incorporate my culture when I can. I love being able to share my family on the reservation and their everyday life. Especially when I get to share my home on the reservation. I want the world to know about my brand is that everyone is beautiful. Being able to capture people how I see them and show them how beautiful they are. It’s always fun to be able to bring that side out of a client.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I honestly don’t ever go out in the city. But if you want to get out of the city Payson is always a mini getaway and it’s just you in nature. Places to eat I would definitely recommend to eat is Leo’s island BBQ, Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonades they have great Acai bowls. Number one place I go to get coffee would definitely be Dutch bro’s.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would definitely love to recognize my mom and my family. Their always encouraging me and sharing my work with everyone just to get my name out.
