Justin is an experienced and playful photographer who specializes in family photography. He’s been a photographer for several years and part time professionally for the past 3 years. He lives in Lake County, IL with his wife and three children where he draws inspiration from the many nearby forest preserves and wetlands.
I love bringing the fantastic that’s buried in every moment of life and capturing it so the magic of that moment can be shared with others.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I’ve done a lot of very organic family shoots. Very little posing and very natural. My approach is to build rapport with the family (especially the kids) by being playful and talkative. Once kids are having fun everyone is having fun and so many beautiful moments start happening. I’m never at a lost for getting great shots because of this, I’m trying my best to work fast and take shots around the families so I don’t miss a single moment.
