Together we will choose a location. As a Maryland family photographer, I have so many favorite spots I like to use and know where to catch the best sunsets! I am always up for checking out new locations or coming to your home. Just let me know what type of scenery you are looking for and I will tell you where to find it!
more than just pictures
CHOOSING A LOCATION
During your styling consultation we will go over preferred style, sizes and budget. I will put together a style board for you and your family with links for easy shopping. You can also use items from my client closet. More on that below!

I have a collection of gorgeous dresses that are available for you to use! I will either bring you some dresses for you to try on before hand or can bring a changing tent for you to easily change into at our session.
Upon booking you will receive your Family Session Prep Guide. It covers 15 location recommendations, Outfit do's & don'ts with color palette suggestions, How to prepare for the day of, Posing tips and FAQ.
First, we will talk via email and see if we are a good fit and if I am available!
Each family has their own vision for a session. I want to make sure both your vision and my style of photography meet to make beautiful images you will cherish forever.
Email me (Julie) and lets start talking about what you've got in mind for your session.
Step 1 of 5
After we go over the details, schedule your session ASAP. Weekends are the most sought after sessions times for families so available dates can be limited. This isn't meant to pressure you but it is always best to book early.

Next we will start to plan outfits. As mentioned above, we will talk about your desired style, sizes and budget. Working off of a color palette that you choose I will design a style board for you with everyone's outfits. You can either click the links to buy or just use it as inspiration for what you've already got in your closet.
Again, the earlier you book your session the more time it gives us to make sure everything fits well or gives you time to go shopping!

Woo-hoo! Its picture day! Your outfits are planned, all your questions have been taken care of. All you need to do is simply show up and show off your beautiful family! I will guide you into poses and give you fun prompts to get your family interacting and to get natural smiles and laughs.

After our session I get right to work on editing your gallery. You will receive your gallery electronically within 2 weeks from our session date. Trust me, I am just as excited to show you as you are to see them!

These photographs are telling your story. Your families story.
"Julie did a wonderful job with my maternity/family photos! When I reached out to Julie initially, she was quick to respond, helpful in answering all of my questions, and accommodating with arranging a place and date/time for our photoshoot. We asked Julie to do our photos at our home -- she gladly trekked around our property up hills and through hay and soybean fields to get us the "harvest season" feel we wanted for our photos. She perfectly captured our vision! She sent us a sneak peek the following day and we were blown away. The rest of the pictures she sent later that week were just as beautiful. We plan to do annual photos for our family greeting card and can't wait to ask Julie to photograph our family again!"

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!

"We had a great experience with Julie! She is very prompt, professional, and organized. She had us complete a questionnaire before our shoot so she knew what we were looking for and things our daughter was interested in, which I thought was so great and have never had a photographer do before! The location she suggested was a hidden gem and even though our toddler wasn’t being the most cooperative, Julie was able to trick her into “looking for bugs” to get some great shots ! Our pictures turned out beautiful!"

Julie's down to earth personality and eye for photography and detail will complete any session. I worked with her for an hour for my maternity shoot on a hot day in May 2020 and it was a blast! It felt natural and comfortable just chatting away posing while she did her thing. She gives great direction on poses and even let me include my dog, Murphy! 5 STARS- Highly Recommend!

I really enjoyed working with Julie for both my maternity and newborn photos. She is very professional and the pictures turned out amazing! She also has a lot of patience, my 5 year old had a million questions for her and she happily answered them all. I definitely recommend her and we will use her again for any future photo needs.

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!
