These images will be your most prized possessions. The moment you meet your child for the first time is one that you will think about for the rest of your life. The hard work you put in to get there and the bonds with the people in the room with you are also part of story. You may forget most of your birth and I promise you you will be delighted to see images of it.
I originally took a Doula training in order to learn how to be in a birth room with my camera. It was then that I fell in love with Doula work and decided to do both together. Rest assured you might not even notice I am there and hopefully if you do notice me I will only add to your birth experience.
Please reach out to me to see if I am available for your birth for Photography or Doula services + Photography.
We will meet at a mutually agreed about location and go on an adventure together. We spend around two hours together and can shoot in up to two locations.
-Includes 40 images in a mix of color and black and white in high res for printing and low res for sharing
-An 8x10 print of an image of your choice
Your baby will change so much even within their first week here. I'll make sure to capture all their little features, their toes, fingers, lips and eyelashes as well as make some beautiful images of the family in its new state together. This session is usually about three hours, purposefully slow and relaxed. There will be ample time for feeding (baby and parents) as well as time to capture all the images you will cherish forever.
-Includes forty images in a mixture of black and white and color.
-An 8x10 print.
-Newborn photos are best within the first ten days of life. I will block time off on my calendar for our session together.
This year I chose my favorite place in the Presidio for my fall mini sessions. Its secluded, with lots of room to play. I hope to not only capture beautiful moments for your Holiday cards but also to create a family heirloom. Something to print and save forever.
Session includes a 30 minute photo session and 15 digital images. Images will be delivered electronically to an online gallery within one week. From there you can download them all to print, share and save how you please.
Up to six family members included.
Upon receiving your reservation I will contact you with tips for getting ready for our session. I look forward to seeing you amongst the trees! Reserve your spot now!
What a perfect to take some time out to document where you are in life right now. If there is ever a time to do some portraiture it is this moment in your life. I like to photograph women with nice full bellies, so anytime after 30 weeks, but it is totally up to you.
-Includes 20 images in a mix of color and black and white for printing and sharing.
- An 8x10 print of an image of your choice
- Includes 1-2 adults for our session together. Sessions are around one hour.
This package includes a maternity and newborn session. Please see those listings for more information. Both sessions come with an 8x10 print.
Some kind words...
"Julia has a fabulous eye and unobtrusive presence that deftly captured all the sweetness and action of our family. She efficiently photographed our newborn, finding those moments of baby peace between feeds and diaper changes, and she bantered with our 2-year-old in a way that made his personality shine through for her (and her camera). We will cherish these gorgeous images for years to come!" -Bria, Mill Valley
"Working with Julia was a true pleasure. She engaged our family--not an easy task with a baby and 4 year old--and captured many memorable moments that we will treasure always. " -Molly, San Francisco
"Julia is amazing! She provides a good balance of guiding the shoot but making room for our ideas and vision as well. Most importantly she ensured that the process was comfortable and fun! The images are gorgeous and we are so grateful that this moment in time has been captured for us." -Sage, Larkspur
