About Janet & Alan...

PASSION...That's the word that comes to mind when describing Janet & Alan Arseneault of Chalet Studio. A passion for life, a passion for photography and visual storytelling. True love and passion for each other.LOVE The story of Chalet Studio began with love. In Kindergarten, a young girl settled her eyes on a boy across the playground. It was love at first sight and that has never changed. Growing from childhood infatuation to a relationship of mutual support, respect and adoration, Janet and Alan have built their lives and career around their love for each other. At 16, Janet invested her entire life savings, a total of $200, to purchase a zoom lens for Alan. With that lens and some good shooting over the fence at Checker Flag Speedway, a career was born. Soon they were employed as the photographers for 3 local speedways. Their career shifted gears when they officially opened Chalet Studio on May 1st, 1987 on their 5th wedding anniversary. It was a success right from the start. LIFETo say that Alan and Janet love "love life" is a bit of an understatement. They love to seek out beauty, adventure and culture in our world. From Bungee jumping in Colorodo, to exploring the Great Barrier Reef, the wilds of Kenya and Tanzania, exploring the Galapagos Islands on a Pirate ship or taking in the midnight sun of the Norweigian Arctic, they are always finding new and interesting adventures to pursue. They have a knack for taking the mundane moments in life, and putting a fun spin on them. This positive energy and approach to life marries perfectly with their role as professional photographers who capture the pivotal moments in the lives of their clients. THE PHOTOGRAPHY STORYPhotographs have the coveted ability to capture moments in life and freeze them in time. As professional photographers specializing in stunning family portraiture and wedding photography, Janet and Alan have the enormous responsibility of documenting the lives of their clients as no one else can. The way in which a photographer captures the moments that unfold before their lens, is a reflection of their own perspective on life. Who better to capther the story of your life and family than a couple who so deeply respects the very essence of life itself. Whether you are celebrating an engagement of marriage, a wedding celebration, the joy of pregnancy, or an important stage in your child or families life, Janet and Alan would be honoured to document these moments for you.
