The Aperture of Power: Jane Beiles

The Aperture of Power: Jane Beiles

Photographer, wife, and mother of three including a daughter named HADLEY, Jane Beiles’ beautifully simple photos have appeared in publications such as the New York Times, HGTV, Vogue, Elle Decor and Coastal Living. As a graduate from the University of Michigan with a degree in marketing and art history, Jane was not always sure photography was the field she wanted to enter. However, with hard work and guidance from the universe to push her down the right path, Jane discovered a new passion and work that, according to Jane, “fills her cup.”

Hadley Pollet and Jane’s friendship is a little different from our previous inspirational women—they just met in person for Jane’s photoshoot! Jane has always been a huge fan of Hadley Pollet products and loved the fun and vibrant colors. Not to mention, she loved the name and even has a daughter named Hadley! As New Canaan business owners, Hadley and Jane connected through social media and formed a connection of support with one another, combining their similar values of a good work ethic and female empowerment. Hadley is not the only woman that Jane supports. On her website,, there is a blog section titled A Tale of Ten Interns, which discusses ten inspirational women that Jane has mentored in the Senior Internship Program from New Canaan High School. Jane teaches these young girls the importance of hard work, creativity, and provides them hands-on experience of what it is like to run a small business.

Throughout her entire life, Jane has worked extremely hard to get where she is and wants to inspire others to do the same. “I have always believed hard work beats talent. If you want something work hard, be nice, and build colleagues up and support those in your field instead of considering them competitors.“ Every day, Jane exemplifies this work ethic by balancing out her duties as a mother, wife, and overcoming the obstacles and challenges that come with being a young photographer. 

For young girls interested in the industry of photography, Jane stresses the importance of following directions in a professional environment, as well as being adaptable, keeping what you want to be the final result in mind throughout the entire process. You can check out more of Jane’s work and inspiration at or follow her on Instagram at @janebeilesphoto, where you will find gorgeous photos, inspirational blog posts and the published works that Jane has worked hard to achieve.
