Kind words from Tana
Julie is professional, intuitive, kind and truly knows how to connect with kids. She knew exactly what she was doing. No questions or hanging around. With two boys under age five we need direction and time is of the essence so we really appreciated her approach. The images are incredible, more than I could have imagined. Love! Would recommend 10000x over.
Kind words from Sara
Julie has been our photographer for the last few years. She has captured so many precious images of our family over the years. She is very prompt and professional and has a great rapport with kids. Her photos are beautiful and always exceed my expectations.
I wouldn't trust anyone else with taking our family photos.
Kind words from April
Julie is the total package. Not only does she take beautiful photos but she’s personable and really great about keeping the session light and fun! She’s amazing with kids and knows how to bring out each personality and capture them in such beautiful ways.
kind words from Scott
Over the years Julie has not only become our go-to family photographer, she has also become one of our very best friends. Her familiarity and comfort level with us and our two girls make photo shoots so easy. Our kids love her, and she has an uncanny ability to make them laugh, listen, and genuinely love the process. Over the years Julie has done milestone shoots for just our daughters, and then also done large shoots with our extended family. Each time she has taken out her camera, she has captured moments we will never forget. We are so grateful for her and her incredible talent. Her photos have brought true joy to our life. We love Julie and know you will to!
Kind words from Wadzi
We are incredibly pleased with our family photos! They came out absolutely stunning. Julie was a gem to work with. She was so warm and kind - she even won over our shy 10-month-old! Julie brought out the best in each of us and really turned the session into such a fun experience. We are so in love with the photos and will cherish them forever!
kind words from Andrea
Our family has used Julie as our photographer for many years. I have known Julie for nearly two decades and must say photography suits her well. As a wife and a mother herself, I feel as if Julie understands the memories and moments a mother would desire to have photographed and never fails to capture those moments with her exquisite talent. Julie has photographed my children at infancy through toddlerhood, as well as large family shoots including our crazy dog.
Julie has such grace and comfort during a photo shoot. Each time I have shown up apologizing for my children's likely uncooperative behavior before her camera is even removed from the bag, and she always puts me at ease. She allows my children to be who they are, and with her patient and loving nature captures their sweet personalities just perfectly. Julie knows how to be silly enough to make a child smile yet she is calm and confident enough to handle a large group, including a number of adults. I am certain she also has a "pretty button" that somehow allows an overwhelmed mother look beautiful and feel confident in front of her camera.
I have referred a countless number of people to Julie, and will continue to do so, as I am confident the pictures they will receive will showcase exactly what was desired. Our family is so thankful for Julie and her amazing talent and we will continue to have her capture moments for our family as the years go by.
kind words from Kathleen
I first met Julie in high school, and she has been our beloved family photographer since my second pregnancy. She has captured various stages of our family, in a maternity shoot, a newborn session, and on location in scenic Flagstaff. My children adore her. Julie has a special talent for coaxing smiles and giggles from temperamental toddlers, and she immediately puts the whole family at ease with her sweet demeanor.
My daughter likes to "play Julie" by snapping pictures with her toy camera, and looks through the various family photos in our house, exclaiming, "Julie took those! She gave me a peach!" (Yes, she even fed my hungry child during a longer shoot.)
I have been consistently impressed with the quality of Julie's work and her products, and her superior customer service. She consistently nails every session and I will always treasure these images. Julie's photographs are as exceptional as she is, and I love having her document the evolution of our family.
kind words from Savannah
We have worked with Julie on five different occasions over the last four years. She is amazing. Not only is her work phenomenal, but SHE is phenomenal. She is professional, on-time, prepared. She is patient with kids (and husbands who hate taking photos!) And she is someone who invests time in her clients.
She builds relationships with people. She spent time making sure we had the perfect newborn photos of our daughter. When we found out we were losing our 9-year-old pup to cancer, she dropped things to make time for us in her schedule to take photos of our girl before we lost her. And three times more, she has taken our annual family photos, capturing priceless moments that I will cherish forever.
Julie's work is all over my walls in my home and it fills my heart with joy, walking by these photos every day. I am incredibly thankful we found her.
kind words from Stefanie
If hiring Julie four times in two years isn't a testimonial in itself, I don't know what is! Julie goes above and beyond treating her clients like family.
She is more than accommodating when it comes to scheduling, even getting up at the crack of dawn to ensure her subjects have the best light available. She took the time to research certain set ups for our twin newborn shoot well ahead of time.
Her cool, calm & collected style helps parents feel relaxed and comfortable, especially when little ones don't like to cooperate! The quality of Julie's work is unbelievable and I'm always blown away when I get to see the final product. Her professionalism, creativity and attention to detail make me want to work with her time and time again!
kind words from Mary
If you are looking to capture life's moments with your family and want a photographer who is patient, creative and so incredibly kind you have come to the right place. Julie started taking our family photos three years ago and we could not be happier. We first started using her when we were pregnant with our first child and she has now photographed our family almost ten times since. Julie does a great job of offering various types of shooting options from short to long session. We've had the opportunity to do both the "in-home" sessions and Flagstaff options and couldn't be happier with the results. She has captured some our favorite photos during the longer more intimate sessions in which our kids were more comfortable and were able to relax and enjoy the moments. We continue to use Julie because of how incredibly patient she is with young children and she is willing to work hard to get the best shots.
One of the best decisions we made from the beginning was to letting Julie show us in-person all the print options she has available. We really enjoy the coffee table books and we have one from every session we've done with Julie. Good photography is an investment and we wanted to ensure we didn't just get digital files and never look at them again. Which is why the coffee table books are a great option, so others are able to enjoy the photos as much as we do.
We highly recommend Julie to capture all of those important moments in life!
