Hi, I’m Julie. I believe in real moments with real people. I don’t want forced smiles. I don’t want anyone saying “cheese” through gritted teeth. I want your shoot to BE fun. I want your shoot to flow, as if it were the most natural thing in the world. And most of all, I want for your family to have a joyous experience connecting with each other and having genuine moments, because those are the moments we need to hold on to.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." -Aaron Siskind
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
— Don McCullin
Life is way too short and moves much too fast. Moments are fleeting, and too often we put off getting photos taken until [insert whatever your reason is here]. But before we know it, those little blonde curls are no longer present, or you realize you don’t have any photos of you and your spouse when you were young and carefree, and neck deep in infatuation. Loved ones have passed on, or best friends have moved away. Photographs have the power to take these moments and freeze them in time for us. To look back on and have our hearts filled with joy at the memories, or to have our children to look back onto when we are gone is such a gift. I encourage you to book a session with a professional photographer, and put that art on your walls and in albums and let them fill your spaces with joy. Let your children reflect back on these times with all the joy they felt when they were small enough to be held or swung through the air. I promise, it’s worth it.
“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.” — Elliott Erwitt

“Julie was exceptional! We absolutely loved her personality and the beautiful photos she took for us. She wasn't afraid to get down in the sand or water to make sure she was capturing great moments. I will definitely be using her again in the future and highly recommend her!” -Nevares Family, Hawaii
