So, where do I even begin?
First, I'm Julie and already consider you a friend.
If you are new around here, this has been my home since I picked up a camera in 2008. Over the years, I grew this little "summer gig" business to multiple six figures, came "known" in my industry, had celebrity clients and seemed to "have it all".
But friend, we only show the highlights and over the years this job that I loved, slowly started killing me and in the fall of 2021, I nearly lost it all.

So what did I do?  I started over.
I walked away and wrote a book about it. 

Well hello there friend...
welcome to my little corner of the internet and I'm so glad you are here!


Although, I have retired from wedding photography and take on a very limited number of portrait sessions a year, I will always be a photographer. I'm also an author, a rest coach and I host retreats both in Europe and the US.

Need to REST and RESET?

I wrote a book!  2021 was the year that changed everything for me. Years of over-achieving, people-pleasing and burnout had rocked me to my very core and it was slowly killing me. I had to make a choice, walk away or lose it all.  This is my story of healing and how I brought balance back into my life and business, healed from religious trauma and was able to reset and pivot into a business that now brings me joy.
