My name is Juliana, but many people call me Jules or Julie. I'm a wife, mother, friend, and photographer.
I love photographing people. My goal is for you to come away from your portrait session looking and feeling AMAZING, and to deliver images that become heirlooms.
I want to document both the SPARK and the WHIMSY in your life and relationships.
I specialize in photographing natural light portraits of women, weddings, pregnancy, and newborns. I work with my clients to understand and achieve the goals for their session, and guide them in a way that puts them at ease in front of the camera and showcases their natural beauty.
I think you are beautiful. I think you are enough, right now. I want you to exist in photographs for your children and grandchildren and for yourself. They don't care about that number on the scale.
They care about YOU.
How do I know this? I lost my mom and dad when I was a teenager. The last and only professional photograph I have with them is from when I was 5. I'm not telling you this to make you to feel bad for me - I'm telling you because I want you to know how much I cherish it.
They say that in 50 years the most photographed generation will have no actual photographs of themselves. Listen: it doesn't have to be that way.
I encourage EVERYONE, whether they work with me or not, to print and display their treasured photographs in a way that is meaningful to them. Because, let's face it - computers crash and storage media become obsolete. I guarantee that, in the long run, you'll be happier with a printed photograph you can hold in your hands and show your loved ones than a bunch of files sitting on a hard drive. And the good news is, you can have both!
