Hey wallflowers,

I'm Justina, a fellow wallflower myself, I figured it'd only be fitting to brand all the things I love with this title. I enjoy working behind the scenes on projects, the name seemed to stick with my newest ventures. I am currently located in Kansas City, which has shown me much opportunity to live out my dreams.

I've been a photographer since about 2014 and working retail on and off since 2008. I always wanted to do something with fashion but was never sure where I fit into that world. I've had awesome opportunities to work with designers in shooting their seasonal look-books and KC Fashion shows the past two years. Most recently, I started selling clothing for friends around the area and honestly realized how much I freaking love it.

Don't ignore what you can't change immediately - start the change yourself. And that's what I'm here to do!
