About Justine

 

I know for many standing in front of a camera is uncomfortable.  I totally get that! Ha, I am that!
It's why talking, laughing, asking questions, and just getting to know each other a little  is as important as all the camera clicking technical stuff.  In fact, in the midst of sharing stories, dragging a fake floor around, talking about future goals, swatting at mosquitoes there are split second moments that turn into fabulous photos - the ones where we both say, "Oh, That is so YOU (me)"!

That is what I love about photography.  That frozen glimpse of a person that can bring tears to a mom's eyes, make a friend say "WOW",  and make you feel the most beautiful you ever have.  I love that and I can do that!

But I also know how to actually use my camera.  I have a Bachelor's of Arts Degree and have taken a boatload of classes in art, photography, design, etc.  I understand light:  seeing it, using it, manipulating it. I can pose you to accent all your greatest features and minimize those you might not think are so great.  I know how to post edit to make those final perfect touches.  I do understand all the techy stuff.  And it IS important.

But mostly, I am truly one of those lucky people who gets to say that she loves her work.  Isn't there a quote somewhere out there that says, " If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life".  That's me.

What you Need to Know:

1.  I have a full service studio!  All the lights, props and backgrounds to create an unlimited variety of of looks!  Bring your ideas, and we'll make them come to life.

2.  I TRAVEL - especially for weddings!  I have photographed weddings in Bismarck, Dickinson, Minot, Medora and all the surrounding areas.  I also do on-location senior pictures in Bismarck, Dickinson, Minot and Medora!

3..  I have a large changing room!  Spread out your outfits, plug in your curling or straightening iron (or both) - you'll have plenty of space to get ready!

4.  That changing room has a comfy chair - if you are a nursing mom, a helpful hand, or just need a breather,  this spot is reserved for you!

5.  I have a coffee bar and a mini-fridge stocked with water and Diet Coke...or maybe Diet Pepsi...or maybe Mountain Dew.  Depends on the day.

6.  I am located right on Main Street - easy to find and within easy distance to a huge variety of great outdoor locations for your photos!


What you Don't really Need to Know but is Fun anyway:

1.  My favorite color is purple.  Find the purple door when looking for the studio.

2.  I have been married for over 20 years and have 3 kids.  They are all fabulous, of course!  

3.  I have been to the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City!   My daughter competed (not me, silly!)  How awesome/strange is that?

4.  I'm not a native North Dakotan...I'm a transplant from the San Francisco Bay Area.  ND is home now!

6.  I am an unashamed Patriot!  My grandpa, dad, husband all served in the U.S. Military.  And now my son does, too!
