Hi friend... I'm Justine!
I was born and raised in a (relatively) small Midwest town, moved to sunny St. Pete, FL for several years after graduate school, and am now living happily, closer to home, in lovely St. Louis, MO with my fabulous husband and our two sassy felines. By day, I'm a pediatric speech-language pathologist, and by light... I'm a film photographer! (So dorky, I know). As an SLP, I help children learn to more effectively communicate, and it's an incredibly gratifying career. That being said, I simply can't resist a good adventure... which is why you'll also find me here!
You see, after my husband proposed in October 2015, I found myself enamored with the beautiful work of fine-art film photographers. "What is this visual wizardry?!" I thought to myself as we searched for our wedding photog. Just months after we had our own engagement photos taken, I purchased my first medium format film camera, and I've been completely obsessed with the art of photography ever since!
When it comes to photography, I'm a sucker for soft light, natural tones, and those candid, in-between moments that tell your story. I firmly believe that the best way for me to tell your story is to know it, first - so. I'm going to want to know alllllll about you and your vision before we actually work together! While I believe that a good photograph should be aesthetically pleasing, I believe that a great photograph should evoke emotion... so when I click my shutter, I strive to create images that give you #allthefeels (today and every day).
If you're interested in a session or collaboration, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'd love to hear from you!
