black and white portrait of Diane Hamacher by Justin Hackworth


My work is specialized in kids and family portraits. I work mainly in studios with a modern, white, and industrial look so all attention is on joyful smiles and genuine connection. If you’re looking for family photos at sunset on the beach, I may not be your best fit. I like to control light and deliver clean and bright photos.

When I photograph kids, I love to capture laugher and movement. Bubbles and confetti are my best friends! The perfect recipe to get the little ones comfortable in front of the camera and get joyful photos.

In my work I’m also drawn to one-on-one connections. Capturing love and happiness between parents and their kids. Of course, I’ll capture the complete family, but I just love photos of just mom or dad with their little one. Each relationship is so unique and special.

If you are looking for a boutique experience and have a photo session your family will enjoy, you know where to find me!
