The Family Investment

precious • Moments • captured

I'm Justine- your favorite family photographer!

Welcome!

I am a former teacher and full-time mama to two amazing little girls! I currently live in Moyock, North Carolina, but travel to Chesapeake and the surrounding areas when I'm doing sessions.

I've always enjoyed working with kids- it's why I became a teacher, and why families are my passion in photography! During your session, expect me to meet your kids where they are at, and enjoy the moment with them. Whether it's a toddler who wants to see the back of my camera, or a fourth grader telling me their funniest joke, I'm here for it!

My clients will tell you that my calm patience and inviting demeanor made their family session a stress-free and enjoyable experience! My background in working with children means you don't have to worry about a thing-I've got you!

am so excited you have chosen to learn more about my family sessions! I hope we can work together to capture your special family memories.

The Experience

01

Communication

As a former teacher, I understand how important clear, timely communication is. From initial inquiry on-wards, I am committed to making sure you feel heard and know I'm here to answer all your questions. You can expect to hear from me within 24 hours.

02

Session Wardrobe

I know how stressful it can be choosing outfits for your session-especially when you have a whole family to think about! I not only have a client closet that you are welcome to utilize, but I will walk you through the entire planning process. We will discuss color palette and I will send you a customized mood board (complete with links to purchase) based on your vision.

03

Enjoyable session

On the day of your session, I don't want you to worry about a thing! My sessions are relaxed and fun-you are there to enjoy your family. Let me do the work of getting you images you will cherish!

This is where you get to customize your experience! You will get to choose the collection that suits your needs best. Collections include both high-resolution digital images and a COMPLIMENTARY artwork credit. Let's get your cherished memories up on your wall!

1. Choose a Collection (Details Below)

A $150 retainer officially reserves your time on my calendar. The retainer not only reserves your date, but covers my raw costs and the time I put into prepping your session (access to my client closet, outfit guidance, locations, etc.), the session itself, and editing your photographs. Your retainer will be applied to your collection selection.

2. Book Your Session

The next step is the session itself. All you have to do is show up and have a blast! I'll take care of guiding you and your family through the session in order to get those precious family images you want.

3. Your Session

After your session, you will receive a viewing gallery of images (usually around 30-40). Your digital and print credit will already be loaded into this gallery. All you have to do is choose the images and prints you love. It's that easy! And no worries if you end up loving more images than you originally purchased. You will have options to upgrade available right there in your gallery as well, if you need them. :)

Of course, I will be right here for you if you need assistance or have any questions.

4. Recieve your photos and Use your artwork credit

The Fine Print

Your $150 non-refundable retainer will be applied to your collection cost.

What an amazing experience! Justine was super easy to work with from beginning to end. She has a sweet demeanor that puts even the most shy model feel comfortable! My daughter's Senior Casuals are incredible! Justine captured her personality so perfectly. We can't wait to use her services again.

We did a family wildflower mini session and it was sooooo hot and humid that day. My hair was literally a disaster when I stepped out of the car. Justine was able to edit my hair and make it look much better and we got some super cute photos of the kids too!

Family Session

liz

Booked a quick mini session with Justine off recommendations and needless today she’ll be photographing our family for a long time! I was blown away at the images she was able to capture in such a quick session and around the chaos of our 4 boys and a dog. Cool/calm/collected and TALENTED. And her turnaround time was great. 5/5!

I just recently had pictures of my family done by justine and not only was she super sweet and friendly but the pictures were AMAZING! I highly recommend her to anyone! Especially if you have young babies (i have a 1 year old) She was so patient with her and really followed anything that my baby was doing and still got great shots!

Justine was excellent to work with. She was the patient of a saint. She captures moments between my kids and I that I have not even noticed or seen a picture of. She was there to help plan outfits.

Justine is the epitome of what a good photographer does. She asks you, the client, what you would like to have. She is prompt, friendly and works well with kids. Justine will be my photographer for life.

Q. How long have you been a photographer?

I took my first digital photography course waaaaay back in high school. After graduation, I took a less artistic path with my life and went into teaching. But art is in my blood, and photography is my passion. After my 2nd daughter was born, I decided not to return to the classroom. I reached out in my community to see if anyone would be interested in a session. I had so much fun working with families this way that I knew I had found my true calling! 

Q. How do I use the complimentary artwork credit? What can I get with it?

The complimentary artwork credit is easily applied to your choice of artwork, available directly through your gallery! Once you receive your gallery, you will find your print AND digital credits listed at the top, near your cart. Simply add whatever you would like to your cart and the credits will be applied at checkout!

The digital credit will allow you to access the number of digitals included with your collection. The complimentary credit acts as a gift certificate. For example, if you have a $400 complimentary credit and want to purchase $1000 of physical artwork, your total will be only $600! If you have any more questions about this, I am always here to help.

Q. Do I have to use the art credit?

Not at all! That's why it's complimentary. I love these products so much, that I wanted to make sure all of my clients get the chance to order some art and fall in love with them as well. You will immediately see the difference in quality between my professional print lab and the major box store printers. These are truly heirloom pieces, meant to be displayed proudly in your home. At this time, your art credit is non-transferrable and must be used to purchase physical products from the gallery it is associated with.

Q. Can I print my own photos?

Of course! Each digital image in your collection comes with a lifetime print release and is yours to take to your favorite print shop. However, each collection also comes with a generous art credit for you to use with my contracted professional print lab. The materials used at my print lab are the highest quality you will find. I do not guarantee image print quality when any outside printers are used.

Q. Do you offer payment plans?

I do! I understand that family photos are a luxury, but I truly believe that everyone deserves to have gorgeous photos and high quality artwork for their home. I know that sometimes budgets can be tight. I am happy to work with you to come up with a payment plan that will allow you to access your family photos in whatever way is easiest for you! Additionally, my booking software accepts Klarna and Afterpay.

Q. How far in advance should I book?

I have a very limited number of session days available each month. I usually book about a month to a month and a half out.  However, I can occasionally accommodate sessions that are closer to your inquiry date. The best way to find out my availability is to reach out!

Q. What if the weather forecast is poor for our session date?

The weather here can be crazy! Knowing this, I always keep a close eye on the weather before a session. If it looks like poor weather is coming, I will reach out to you a few days in advance to make sure we have gone over options. However, I won't make the final call until about 24 hours before the session. Sometimes sessions can even be rescheduled to just a different time on the selected day! As always we will work together to decide the best course of action based on your vision and needs.
