From the time she was three years old, Megan M Riley knew she was different. She spotted spirits in her house, communicated with deceased relatives, and even witnessed her grandmother's apparition at her cousin's wedding.

The shutterbugs at Janssen Photography divide their time between two scenic locales where they capture subjects around charming outdoor grounds or inside one of two contemporary studios. At the Lakewood site, a historical Victorian home nestles amid 2 acres of scenery that include a pond, waterfall, gazebo, and a 1940s vintage pickup truck. The Littleton studio rests on 2.5 acres of coalmining land, where a rustic cellar and a stone waterfall create evocative photo backgrounds. Once photographers have snapped sophisticated family photos, whimsical child portraits, and memorable senior photos, they retouch these images and immortalize them in print form. When they aren't snapping shots on their home turf, Janssen's photographers go on location to chronicle weddings, shoot publicity photos, and document fake lunar landings.
