Introduction: My family is tired of posing for photos and forced me to start taking pictures of other people :) My goal is to have fun while taking beautiful pictures that you love to look at for years to come.

Wedding and Event Photography

Julie and her husband did such an amazing job!!! She was so helpful with figuring things out during a pandemic and made our day so special! They made taking photos so fun and easy. My husband and I couldn’t help by giggle the whole time ❤️ I cannot thank them enough for being so wonderful and making a stressful day stressless.

Headshot Photography

Julie was just great. She was super friendly and the photos she took and edited were also phenomenal. I'm so glad to have a headshot I'm actually proud of. :)

Engagement Photography

Oh my goodness I can’t say enough wonderful things about working with Julie! She was so accommodating for my engagement shoot and was extremely professional and quick to get our gallery back to us! She has such a natural gift and an eye for what will create a gorgeous photo. I could not be happier with our results. I will definitely work with Julie again in the future for my photography needs! Keep up the amazing work.

Portrait Photography

Julie is great , she did accommodate me in no time like 2 days before for our maternity shoot even though she has been returning back from a trip the same day. She knows what to capture and how to capture the best photos naturally. Her website has all the information you need in one place including a presentation with different parks and the best times to capture photos. I would highly recommend Julie for anyone.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    On Thumbtack, I do add on the thumbtack fee. All prices are negotiable. Just let me know what you had in mind!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I gradually became more and more obsessed with the camera over the years and as I had more interested things and people I wanted to capture in fun and interesting ways.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    A beautiful woman wanted a 40th birthday cake smash, complete with tutu, crown, confetti, balloons, props, backgrounds, and of course...cake! We spent a few weeks talking about ideas, color schemes, and locations. Between setting up her set, costumes and shooting, the whole session was about 2 1/2 hours long. And we all enjoyed every minute of it!
