just a photographer.
This is not worth missing out on because other photographers have made you feel awkward by using their preset ideas, as opposed to taking the time to understand your vision + personality to artistically collaborate together.
For the last 6 years of my life, I dove into what it really means to be a dreamer, and to connect with
people, so that we could find the honest + cinematic nature of a moment together. My goal through this is that we get to creatively convey your human emotional experience in an array of color, light, emotion, nostalgia, & purpose.
If you're looking for an untraditional approach to a photography/videography experience that won't fit in a box...
let's do it.
Meet the girl behind it all
Rebel, dreamer, creative, empath, animal + nature enthusiast, and fashion lover, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
You can call by whatever name you'd like, but I love to go by Jbaby because at the end of the day, you're more than a client to me, you're a friend... and I believe that real art is made with friends.
Not only am I a photographer/ videographer, but a mama of two cats, well traveled explorer, and fashion stylist. Through all of these things, I get to connect with people, but its my empathic nature that allows me to really get deep with it all. Celebrating people + stories through these relationships is what lights my creative heart up.
The Personal Embrace Session
reconnecting with yourself.
Over the years, I found that more and more people were coming to me during a milestone in their personal journeys of life, discovering themselves more deeply. They trusted me to join them in celebrating, honoring, and embracing their true essence- in turn, birthing this very special kind of portrait session.

“Justene made us (two people who are relatively camera shy) incredibly comfortable, and it shows in the photos! She caught our essence with ease.”
“Because of her kindness, professionalism, & organization, I have so many photos from our wedding day that I couldn't possibly choose a favorite. Justene is creative, and directed us into to capturing really amazing portraits. Do yourself a favor and hire her as your photographer; you won’t regret it.”
“Justene's ability to take someone's essence and capture it in a single second is amazing; she truly got to know me and capture that in all my photos.”
