My name is Jana Contreras and I am a 27 year old with an old soul. I am located in Sonoma County, California but love to travel anywhere and everywhere. I am married to my other half, Eli Contreras. Eli is one crazy talented musician and self taught cook. I mean he made me Pollo El Horno last night with amazing Tostones, need I say more? (If I could eat this meal every day for the rest of my life I would!). Fun current life update about us is that we are starting the process of adopting a newborn this year. It can take years to get a newborn but we are already just full of joy and have the nursery all set up and ready to go!
I am passionate about the nectary funky monkey smoothies (banana and strawberry), Sol Food (the Puerto Rican restaurant based out of San Rafael), and avocados. In my free time you can find me at home probably looking for the stash of chocolate that my hubby hides from me or going to get one of my favorite smoothies from the nectary in Sebastopol California.
I love to explore different national parks, belt Needtobreathe songs alone in my room, eat Avocado toast with Trader Joes honey goat cheese on it and watch countless episodes of Grey's Anatomy. I also love serving the community for Jesus. My favorite place in the world to serve is South Africa. I have been there many times and have loved every minute of loving on those kids. I truly believe those kids gave me more love than I ever could have given them.
Most importantly I love what I do! I am passionate about this dream job of mine and I am stoked to be doing this everyday of my life! P.S. Weddings are my jam! If you want a photographer who will be there to dance with you, cry with you and get you anything you need then stop what you are doing, email me via the contact page and book me! We can even celebrate over some yummy food via facetime or in real life!
Life is short so be sure to fill it with adventure after adventure. Do not be afraid to set goals that seem impossible to reach for if you persevere you will succeed. Do scary things and never stay in your comfort zone. Get out of your comfort zone and learn to thrive there. Always be willing to serve and look for ways to serve in your community and around the world. Above all else love one another.
