Having a photography session is more than just getting pictures. It is having photos to look back and reminisce on. It is having photos to hang in your home for your children and yourself to see often. It is having photos to pass down to your children (and grandchildren) years from now.
But you probably realize that and that's why you are here, right?
The process leading up to and including our session is just as important as the photos themselves.
I am with you every step of the way through this to help in any way that I can. Once you book your session I start gathering all the important details and give you all the tools needed to prepare for your session.
I am just as excited as you are to have a session and can't wait to capture this amazing time in your life! I promise you are in the right place!

"Julie did a wonderful job! We are so pleased with the photos and she was great to work with. She handled working with our active toddler so well. She was professional and adaptable. She came prepared to the venue, had done her own research for shoot locations and made use of the lighting. Thank you Julie!"

"We could not be more happy with the photography done by Julie. From the beginning to the end, she was professional, kind and super responsive! She offered an extremely helpful outfit guide and bent over backwards to find a new time for us when the weather and COVID complications didn’t work in our favor. She made our first family photos a wonderful experience and sent our pictures over so fast! They are beautiful and will be cherished forever! Thank you Julie!"

Have Questions? Get Answers
How long is a session?
Sessions are typically 45 minutes to an hour. We are not racing a clock though, we will shoot until we are both satisfied with the variety of images.
When will I receive my gallery?
One thing that I am always told is past clients have been so happy with how quickly their gallery was ready. I will have your photos ready for you within 2 weeks of our session (often sooner). After you pick your collection I make the final edits to those photos and they are ready for with 1 week.
How do I try on a dress from the client closet?
Once you let me know what items you would like to try on I will drop them off to your house. Often clients are not home and I just set them outside in a dress bag for you to try on at your convince.
Pick up is easy too. Depending on how soon your session is or if another client needs one of the dresses, I will either have you keep them and return them at the session or I will pick it back up and return to you before your session.
I have a portable changing tent so you can change out of the dress after the session. Easy easy!
Can our dogs be in the pictures?
Sure! I love dogs! If you are bringing them along I highly recommend bringing someone else to be able to help out with them and hold them when we are taking shots without them. No matter how well behaved they are they need to be leashed. A favorite squeaky toy and treats are a great idea to bring too.
I'm so awkard in pictures!
I don't know that many people are more awkward then myself hah! So I totally get the concern but I will give you prompts and tell you exactly what to do so you are never feeling weird.
Do you offer any albums, prints, canvases, etc?
A: Yes, all of this is done & ordered right through your online gallery.
Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes, I do! If you would like to make a payment plan I suggest paying over time between booking and your session for the minimum collecting package, That way it spreads out the payments and you can still get your images as soon as they are delivered. If you want to upgrade to a higher collection you can pay the difference at the time of viewing your gallery.
what happens if it rains on our session day?
I always wait until 3 to 4 hours before our session to officially have to reschedule. Weather can and often does change by the hour. I will try to accommodate with weekend dates if they are available- but since they are often full, sessions are usually moved to a weekday the following week.
What days and times do you offer sessions?
Sessions are always scheduled an hour before sunset. This is when the lighting is most dreamy and of course the skies are amazing! I only offer 2 weekend dates a month and they fill up fast. Weekends are done on Saturday evenings and week day sessions are done on Thursday and Friday evenings.
I would love to connect with you and talk about what you have in mind for our session!
