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!

"Julie is without a doubt one of the most skilled photographers I’ve ever worked with! She did both my newborn shoot and my maternity shoot and my friends and family were blown away. I’ve had so many people say that my maternity shoot photos could be on the cover of a book they are that impressive! My newborn shoot was really tough because my baby would not stop crying the whole time, but Julie still got the most amazing pictures and made it seem like nothing out of the ordinary happened at all. I would recommend her to anybody in a second. Not only is she extremely skilled in what she does but she is incredibly professional, attentive, and kind. I can’t say enough great things about Julie and her business!"

"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 loved working with Julie for our maternity and newborn photos. From her client closet (I was super grateful to not have to buy a long maternity dress for a one-time use) to her prompt replies to her honest, open, reasonable pricing to her thoughtfulness in making sure we did the shots I had requested in her pre-session surveys (I tend to get a little forgetful and/or intimidated making those requests in the moment, so I loved getting to think through things before and then know Julie would make sure it happened) she's truly wonderful to work with. Sessions didn't feel rushed, and we got our GORGEOUS photos back earlier than expected! Strongly recommend getting maternity and newborn photos to document the special time and strongly recommend Julie to do it!"

"I have had a fabulous experience with Julie as our family photographer! From maternity photos, mommy and me photos, and family photos with grandparents, Julie was amazing. I'm plus size and was very nervous about feeling beautiful and having a 'nice bump' and not looking fat for my maternity photos. She provided and let me try on a few maternity dresses, listened to what I wanted, and gave me lots of tips on how to stand and pose. I have loved all of the results and am so thankful for Julie's down to earth personality! Also she remembered that our nursery theme was moon and stars and she had moon and star cookies made for us when she delivered our photo package. She goes above and beyond for her clients!"

"Julie did our fall/winter maternity shoot! It was so easy to book our session with her, and she even provided dresses for me to try on and use if I wanted to. On the day of the shoot, she was so great and told us exactly what she needed to get the best pictures. She also wore a mask the entire shoot and made sure we weren’t too close to others at the photo location when our masks had to be off. Our pictures turned out great, and I would highly recommend her to other expecting moms!"

"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!"

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 vary.
I would love to connect with you and talk about what you have in mind for our session!
