It's been awhile since I've introduced myself on this page and since I've gotten some new followers recently, here we go!
Hi! I'm Justine (she/her), the owner of Fluttering Shutter Photography.

Here are 5 things about me that can help us connect:
** I've lived in Northern Virginia for all of my life, with a healthy dose of Brooklyn/Staten Island in my childhood and a sprinkle of Salem/Roanoke in my college years.
** I'm a mom of 4 amazing kids (almost 14, 10, almost 9 and 4.5). (And yes, we are done having babies.)
** I L-O-V-E what I do. Photography has always been something that I dabbled in, but once my husband bought me my very first DSLR (a Canon t3i), I fell in love and slowly started to build a business.
** What I want for my clients- I want you to feel comfortable in front of my camera and have a fun session (I'll even accept a "That wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be!" from my really camera shy clients.) I want clients to L-O-V-E their portraits and enjoy them for generations to come, whether it be digital images or printed products.
** My WHY- When I look at this portrait of my grandparents with me and my husband at our first babies baby shower, I can almost hear their voices and feel their hugs. I have one picture of my Grandmother with my second child and it is only of her hand holding his foot at a few weeks old, because it was the only way that she could touch him. She passed a few months after his birth. My third and fourth babies never met either of them because my Grandfather passed while I was pregnant with my third baby. I don't say all of this to be morbid, I promise! These images truly are my why. I want to help people capture those memories and feelings and be able to show them to future generations because I think that having portraits of people that you have loved is an amazing gift to yourself and your loved ones.
Want to get to know me a little better and see what I can offer you for your portraits? Let's chat! I can't wait to meet you and help you to capture the moments that you want to remember.
