I'm Julie! I am a southern girl, wife to my college sweetheart, mama to two cool kiddos, teacher to my fellow photographers, and I deeply love people and Jesus. I am not the typical photographer who was always carrying around a camera as a child. For me, photography just happened. It is my second career, and I guess you could say that it found me. From Day 1, my goal was to capture what was real, with nothing forced or posed. I want to tell stories. I want you look at my images and feel something. Connection is huge for me, I feel in order to capture the real you, I need to get to know you first. I want to become your friend and give you an experience, not just take pretty pictures. Oh and I do hug everyone - so you have been warned. Overall I am a pretty happy and upbeat person, and yes, I'm that annoying morning person. I feel that life is a gift, and it's pretty amazing. I LOVE my job, I LOVE my clients, God is good and I am so blessed.
I have traveled to all 50 states and 15 countries.
My dream has always been to be a voice in a Disney animated film. I secretly sing Disney songs all the time and pretend.
My greatest accomplishment is being a mom. I was told I never would be one. Our daughter is adopted from Russia, and our son is truly a miracle. I thank God everyday.
Milk in a frozen mason jar is the best! And, if you combine that with cookies...ahhhhh!
I'm sadly allergic to yummy truffle oil.
I have sung on TV!
I won't eat food if it touches the other food on my plate.
I just discovered that I'm an extroverted introvert. It took 46 years for someone to finally explain me to everyone else.
Anthropologie, Free People and Target. Just the smell of Anthro makes me happy! Oh and the dollar spot at Target, gets me every time!
and yes, I have several pair of ears!
nuff said. Oh and cupcakes, and wait, did I also say chocolate?
Jo-Jo is my best friend (she just doesn't know it yet) hehe
Sometimes the wonderlust consumes me.
I would wear one everyday if I could!
I just can't explain it but all the sunshine and the sea just makes me want to dance! (and I'm not a good dancer)
I love them all but my favorites are tulips and peonies!
