Hellllooooo I’m Justine and I truly, hand on heart believe that I have the best job in the whole world!! I have always had a passion for photography, from my early love of snapping photos of anyone and everything, I still remember the anticipation of waiting for my photos to be developed at the lab. My family home was always full of photos on the walls and I would spend hours looking through our family albums - this is why I am passionate about the importance of families capturing beautiful moments together and displaying them around their home.
I’ve been working as a professional photographer since having my first son, nearly 8 years ago - yikes - 8 years!! Boy has that time flown by!! So my life is crazy, busy, full of fun, laughs and everything that my two energetic wee men bring to my life! While life is certainly a balancing act at times, I wouldn’t change a thing - I get to be at home with Thomas and George, run my own business to fit around family life and go on numerous awesome family adventures with my hubby, Scott and our boys. Documenting these times is priceless.
I am an award-winning portrait photographer and proud to be one of Dunedin’s leading maternity and newborn Photographer’s, who photographs over 200 babies and families each year. I am an Accredited Professional Photographer with the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, and was awarded an Associate Distinction in 2017.
My job provides me with the most amazing opportunities to met wonderful people and capture some of their most precious moments through my photography, which become heirlooms that will be in their families forever, to savour and return to time and again. I love documenting stories, capturing emotion and creating unique, simple, timeless images.
I look forward to all the new stories I am still to capture x
