think of someone kind. as kind as you have ever met, in a town and an industry where you know almost no-one. that is justine russo for me. this girl is phenomenal. she is one of the most supportive people i know, and she genuinely believes in helping others achieve their dreams and accomplish their goals. she is a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, an athlete, a photographer and a friend. i tell ya, this girl has it goin’ on! not only has justine been a huge inspiration for me in the photography industry, she has also taught me so much through her loving personality and her go-get-’em attitude. one of my favorite quotes that justine has ever said is this ~ “Whatever you are in life be a GOOD one…a kind one…a supportive one….be one that makes people proud they know you”, and all i can tell you is that she lives this to the fullest, and i am so proud to know her and call her one of my friends. justine was my first friend that i made in kelowna when we moved here – we hadn’t even been here a week when she invited me to go out and have coffee with her, i was and still am more grateful for that than she will ever know!
justine is a girl who is going places ~ so if you haven’t already, be sure to check out her amazing website (that she designed on her own!) at www.justine-russo.com, and make sure you become a fan of her facebook page by clicking here to get to know her and enjoy her beautiful work! justine is also hosting a workshop in April for intro photographers and those who are wanting to know more about building a photography business and brand! i think there are still a few spots left, so if you are interested check that out too by heading over to Justine Russo: The Workshop!! i know she is going to be such a huge asset to all those who attend, and i would highly recommend it for anyone who is starting out in this industry!
thank you justine for your constant support, your encouragement, for sharing your mad cooking skillz on your blog, your kindness and most of all for your friendship. i am so happy that we crossed paths and i am soo looking forward to more fun memories with you. I can’t wait to watch all your triumphs, and to be there for each other as we grow our businesses!! you rock JR! (the only thing that annoys me is i can’t “shorten” your name! .. so JR it is.. original, i know.. 😉 )
