I’m Janna Lopez. I feel alive when I help you feel alive.

Over a decade ago (as a magazine publisher) I received a press invitation to visit Santa Fe. Ever since I’ve been in love. There’s something magical about the landscape that instantly embraced my heart: the ever-changing turquoise sky, illuminated sun, pinion aroma, majestic pine and ponderosa, and dazzling midnight stars. Once I got to know the community, I realized the people make Santa Fe an even lovelier place to be. I traveled here often with the dream that someday I’d make this place home.

I hope you enjoy the enchantment of Santa Fe.

Santa Fe is a picturesque. Everywhere you look there are stunning surprises from the sky, the earth, buildings, mountains, trees, and art. I love capturing both the known and smaller details that make Santa Fe an ever-evolving work of living art. Enjoy the beauty. Images available for purchase.
