story and soul photography - michael justin
Hi, I’m Michael Justin and I capture authentic family moments

As an award winning photographer and Emmy winning cinematographer, I would be honored to tell your family’s story. My images and films portray the depth and soul of your family- the joy, the silliness, the boundless love in its purest form. 
 
I’m based in New Canaan, CT but service all of Fairfield County, Westchester County and NYC taking maternity photos, newborn photos, family photos, and portraits. 
 
I believe life is a story made up of ordinary moments. One day we will realize that those moments were the extraordinary ones.

People always say “don’t blink. They grow up so fast.” But even with my eyes wide open, these precious moments are fleeting. I am so thankful S&S captured these images so they can stay my babies forever!

PORTFOLIO OF WORK

There’s nothing quite like a personal face-to-face meeting where we can sit, talk, get to know each other and plan a vision for your shoot. I invite you to come into my home photography studio in New Canaan, Connecticut, for a consultation to design your custom photography sessions and create breathtaking artwork of your family. If you can’t make it to New Canaan, we can start with a phone call or a virtual meeting.
In the meantime, check out some of my work below!

One of my favorite past times is grabbing a glass of wine, opening up our album and reliving the session with did with Story & Soul. They are the best photographs I’ve ever seen!

Becoming a mother means also becoming an ametuer photographer. I’m always taking iPhone photos of my kids and capturing the special moments between them and my husband. Unfortunately, this means I’m rarely in any of the pictures (with the exception of several unflattering selfies!). I am so thankful for my photo shoot with S&S because now I have my moments with them preserved forever.
