The Investment Details

"We used Julie for our newborn shoot and she was amazing! Super responsive and so helpful from timing, to planning outfits and getting pictures back to you quickly. The platform she uses for communication and payment made the process so seamless and I really appreciated how organized it made it all. Would highly recommend Julie!"

"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!"

"Julie was AMAZING during our newborn session. She was very quick to respond and set up a session with. During the session she was very professional and patient with our rambunctious 15 month old, and patient with the new baby when she got fussy. The pictures turned out so amazing, and if we every need a photographer in the future, we will definitely be reaching out to her."

"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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"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!"
