Justine’s purpose is to create a wealth of images with beauty, wit and feeling, specific to your family.

She creates images with both an artist's eye and a photojournalist's ability to capture the moment.  To hear what her clients have to say about her and her work click here.

If degrees and accolades get you excited, Justine is an award winning, internationally exhibited artist and photographer. Her personal work is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and has been exhibited at The New Museum and the International Center for Photography here in New York. She is formally trained in photojournalism (B.S. Newhouse, Syracuse University) and fine art photography (M.F.A Sydney University). 

Australian born, Justine has made New York her home for over a decade. And yes, she’s a mom too.




Why work with our associate photographer - Petra or ryan - instead of Justine?

As our studio has grown we have wanted to keep the quality of the work we do at the highest level. Our associate photographers have a technical background in photography along with years of experience executing it. They make you feel comfortable while creating gorgeous images. You get a similar sensibility and aesthetic to the work Justine creates for a smaller investment. You have access to all the same artwork and products, and your resulting images go through the same process.


Petra's work shows a great eye for creating classic family moments, and portraits of kids and babies infused with simplicity and playfulness. If you have pets, she loves to have them along for your session. She knows how to bring out the best in you.

Originally born in Slovakia, she has been in New York for the past 12 years with her Italian husband, 9 year old pug, and baby boy. She's been shooting with our studio for the last 5 years.

Ryan creates a relaxed environment for your shoot. He's got a stack of experience in fulfilling the concepts of picky art directors from his 15 years as a commercial and editorial photographer. Ryan is no stranger to working with real people and families either. He gets regular workouts from wrangling his own two young kids.
