I'm Justine, the woman behind the lens. I've been there for as long as I can remember, snapping pics from disposable cameras, my parent's 1970's canon, my first digital camera, then my first DSLR and now from my newest Canon 'baby'.  The cameras I've used may have changed but my passion hasn't. 

Due to all the camera usage, sometimes I've been told to stop taking so many photos (thanks, ahem, husband and kids), but I can't help it! I love capturing a moment in time to be remembered forever, no matter how terrible your memory  is (I may be talking about myself). The days may be long but the years are short and I don't want to forget any of it.  I especially love taking photos of families so the 'photographer' of the family can be in front of the lens, too. 

A Chicago transplant since 2016, I am based in Denver, Colorado, where I live with my husband and my favorite photography subjects, Henry, Jackson and Ava.


"Oh my goodness these are amazing! Thank you so much! Some of them are so sweet they bring tears to my eyes! You are so talented. I appreciate these very much!"


your session

The Regular 

Sessions are best photographed in natural light, starting within an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset. They can last up to one hour at the location of your choosing or one from my recommendation. My hope for your session is for everyone to interact with each other naturally, feel comfortable and have fun. Perfect for family sessions, extended family, senior sessions (including wardobe changes) and maternity sessions.


There is nothing sweeter than having the opportunity to capture (and snuggle) your new babe. Sessions are best done within two weeks of their birth to have a sleepy, happy baby. I will come to your home to photograph you and your newly expanded family, where you feel the most comfortable, during the daytime when there's the best light inside your home. A session includes lightly posed newborn photos and family photos, and can take up to two hours. I want our session to be as comfortable and easy for you as possible, those new babes are work enough (though entirely worth it)!

The Shortie  

This shorter session is perfect for a milestone moment -cute pregnancy announcement (letterboard is available for use!), cake smash to celebrate a first birthday, those precious months between newborn and the big one year or a shorter senior photo session. Can also be used when you want to capture a few smiles for a holiday card, Mother's Day - or a Monday! Your 20 minute session will take place with natural lighting in the location of your choice. 


You will receive a link to a gallery containing your edited photos within three - four weeks. Within the gallery you can view your photos and download the specified amount of photos for your session type - and purchase even more for a small fee should you not be able to choose!
