I’m Julie, nice to meet you.
I love taking pictures. why?
Life is lived in the simple moments. In the organic, unscripted moments. A mom brushing her daughters hair away from her eyes. A father throwing his giggling son into the air. A couple sharing an intimate glance that speaks more than words, when they think no one in looking.
These are the moments I want to capture. The ones when you didn’t know anyone was watching. I want you with your loved ones, in your element, relaxed and joyful; not even thinking about what is happening behind the lens.
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.
This is why I truly love what I do. Because these are the moments, the simple joys of being together that we need to hold on to.
Who i am
Outside of my photography, I am a Marine wife, and a mom to an amazing little boy. Coffee is my lifeblood. I love hitting the streets for a good run, but hardly find the time. I have found a love for power lifting. I dabble with a crochet hook. I love cooking new dishes (Food Network is a guilty pleasure). I love meeting a friend at a sidewalk cafe for an afternoon cappuccino. Most of all I love spending time with my family, because as the years pass, the more I realize how truly short they are.
Oh, and I think self portraits are SO important, and try to jump in the frame with my family as much as I can.
where am i
For today, you can find me down south… no I mean WAY down south. We are currently located in Buenos Aires, Argentina! Living here has been an incredible opportunity to capture a different culture, some amazing architecture, and some beautiful people. It won’t be for long though, stay tuned for where we head next!
