and it kind of chose me. I have been taking care of people and photographing their lives since the birth of my sister when I was 7. I remember being mesmerized by some black and white photos of my mom and my brother. I want every family to have such heirlooms.
how beautiful and strong you are. I want to capture your family with all the connections and little details between you. We will make art together, something to be cherished for generations to come.
“It was an AMAZING experience to work with Julia and I will cherish the photos she took for us forever.
We did a total of 4 photo sessions throughout my pregnancy with her - a family photo shoot, a pregnancy shoot, labor and delivery, and first look with the big sisters - each and every photo she delivered (no pun intended) surpassed our expectations.
As a doula, she knows how to work so well with pregnant woman, nervous partners and silly/impatient big sisters. The final products are better than we could have ever hoped for.
I would recommend Julia to anyone who wants a fun, relaxed, and super professional photographer to capture those special moments from pregnancy to labor/delivery and beyond!”

“We hired Julia for the FULL experience - pregnancy/family shot, birth pictures and video and a newborn shot. I never thought having too many beautiful pictures could be a problem ;) but we now have so many it's hard to decide which ones to use for albums and cards.
Julia has a rare quality of ease to her, she sees but isn't seen. At out birth she felt more of a doula and a friend there for support than a photographer, the amazing pictures she took was a bonus. She's so very talented in her ability to naturally capture the moment. For the pregnancy and newborn shots we didn't at all pose for her we just went about our day. We took a stroll around our neighborhood, played at home with our toddler and Julia took gorgeous real pictures capturing those moments.
I can guarantee you won't regret working with Julia, she's a gifted photographer and a pleasure to be around.”

“I'm so incredibly grateful for the photos and Julia's support during my birth. I treasure the photos and look at them all the time. Her calm, grounded and loving presence at the birth was exactly what I needed. She'll always have a special place in our hearts and family. She's a gem!”
-Heather C, San Francisco
”We hired Julia to take newborn photos of our little Bug. Julia was a true pleasure to work with- from scheduling to prepping, to the day of, everything was done with ease and professionalism.
The proof is in the pudding, as they say. The photographs that she captured are truly a work of art. She managed to capture the spirit of our family in some of the most nonchalant pics. She stayed with us for several hours, accommodating several feedings, dog interruptions and poop explosions :) I also loved how very simple everything was- she knew how to make the most out of our existing space and natural lighting, so it was a very relaxing morning!
I recently compiled the photos into a photo book and shared them with the grandparents. Their response:
"This is truly a keepsake"
"I can't believe how artistic they are!"
If you are looking for a photographer who captures the feeling in the moment, then Julia is the photographer for you. She listens to your input and seamlessly integrates her expertise...and makes everyone feel very pretty when all is said and done!”
