They wanted photographs to show that the people are fun and so is their workplace.


Parade Magazine

When Parade Magazine called to say they wanted me to photograph the Nielson’s for the cover, I was excited, of course, but I figured things change quickly in the magazine world, and perhaps by the time this issue was scheduled to come out, some world event or celebrity scandal would take its place instead. I imagined it would be discovered that Whitney Houston faked her death and she was alive and now living happily in Des Moines, and Parade would put that story on the cover instead of Nie Nie.

So, I was pleased as punch when, on April 8, 2012, my neighbor called me at 8am Sunday morning to ask me if I wanted to come get his Parade Magazine because a picture I took was on the cover.

The cover shot shot turned out great. I like the one that Parade selected from all the options I sent them. This was taken at Stephanie’s home. Earlier in the day, I went to Pictureline to get a seamless background and I took a picture of that sofa with me so I could coordinate the colors a bit. Before photographing just the two of them, I photographed the whole family together. They are a delight.

The article contains excerpts from Stephanie’s new book Heaven is Here, which I recommend to anyone that knows how to read. It’s so good.

Nie Nie

Interested in seeing what things looked like behind the scenes? Thanks to Mango Films for putting this video together. I’ve probably watched it about 40 times now.

Stylists: Lindsay Clark and Amy Hackworth

Ladies home journal photography by Justin Hackworth

Karen and Rachel came to my studio in Provo, Utah, a couple months ago to have their picture taken to accompany an article in Ladies Home Journal about mothers and daughters. It’s on news stands now in the May 2012 issue.

I hired Alison Czarnecki to do the styling and after that, I started to think about ways I could include her on every single shoot because she’s so funny and pleasant to be around in addition to being fantastic at being a stylist.

Thanks, Alison. Let’s do that again soon.

Actor portraits

A couple years ago Maddie accompanied me to a wedding in Logan. She’s fun, easy to talk to, and has an amazing voice. So I was happy when she called and asked me to photograph her.

After I took some pictures of her I asked her to sing. One song wasn’t enough. I  asked her to sing three. I think it’s the most lovely sound we’ve had in that studio so far.

Meet Maddie.

How to feel great

by justin on July 31, 2008

in Editorial, portraits, Provo

The conversation went like this as she walked in the door:

Gretel: You look great.
Lady: Oh, and I feel great. (big laugh)

I love that and knew this one would be lots of fun. I was right. Now I feel great.

Portrait – Dave W.

by justin on February 28, 2008

in business, Editorial, portraits






Dave works at one of the local companies providing software and networking to a world-wide market. A publication in Chicago is writing an article about him. They need an accompanying photo. I don’t know what image they’ll use, but these are some I think have potential. As it turns out, Dave and I are from the same area in Idaho. Not the same town, but the same area. In fact, we knew some of the same people. It’s always great to meet someone from back home.
