Julie! YOU DID AWESOME! The pics look amazing and turned out so well. The finished products are so much better in person. Well done. It is amazing to me how much Tommy has grown since then (woah, he was little!). I’m so glad that we did this and spent the money to do it right. Such a great investment. 


When I first opened those boxes at about 10pm last night I was in tears. What a whirlwind this has all been… and those first few days figuring it all out… man! we’ve come a long way! 🙂 I’m so thankful we invited you into our home to capture those rare moments. You are really good at what you do. I am so glad we chose you!

-Tina M., Washington, DC

We opened your packages – 2 albums and the big gallery print – and were in awe of the pictures. You captured so many precious moments and thoughtfully produced the images that we will cherish forever. Thank you. We can’t wait to have you come back for round two with both kids! Thank you! Megan and Peter C., Washington, DC

Julie’s work is vibrant and striking — and not just with regard to color. She was able to accurately capture our son’s personality, and she has a great sense of composition. On top of that, she’s really easy to work with and is a mom herself, so she knows how to interact with little ones. We highly recommend working with her. It’s been almost a year since the photo shoot, and we love and appreciate the photos more and more as time passes. Michelle K., Falls Church, VA

Julie captures the most beautiful images of our family! She is a talented professional who is able to work with children and adults effortlessly. I feel so lucky that Julie has documented our growing family over the years. If you have the chance run, don’t walk, to Julie Kubal photography! Purnima Boominathan, Washington, DC

I want to tell you that I got everything today. The album is so beautiful and the for the walls are just totally amazing. That’s the way to do those! I just love it. I couldn’t be happier. You’ve done such an amazing job and I’ll be in touch late fall because I’m going to get the kids this [gift certificate] again for Christmas. I can’t wait for next year. I’m excited about next year already. You do a beautiful job, just an amazing job. Thank you so much for everything. Marilyn D., Phoenix, AZ


Just wanted to send you a picture of how lovely our photo arrangement came out – of course my iPhone camera doesn’t capture it but the prints are so beautiful and look great on the wall…Bea is getting so big and I’m already itching for more photos! Laine G., Washington, DC

We are working with Julie to capture our daughter’s first year. We have already had two photo shoots with her and the images we received are spectacular. My husband and I cannot stop looking at them! Not only is she a true artist, but also a true professional. Her level of service is above and beyond. We felt so well taken care of at every step; from the initial consultation to the decision of how and where to hang the stunning work in our home, Julie was there for us! Christina Tindale, Washington, DC

Truly just working with Julie and having her guide us through the process. She was fun to be with, calm and understanding when the kids melted down and made the whole experience extremely enjoyable which we hadn’t anticipated. Also her expertise in helping us think through where we would hang the final product was invaluable. She spent a great deal of time with us on that aspect of it and as a result we knew right where we were going to hang our portraits, we had them up within a day of receiving them and they look amazing! Janice W., Washington, DC

We received the stunning photos and album on Sunday. While I really liked the images on the computer screen the final photos exceeded my highest expectations. Thank you for beautifully capturing the most precious moments in Vivienne’s life. We are very much looking forward to the holiday session next week. As we are certain we will have another set of photos which we will look back on fondly years from now. Margot Price, Falls Church, VA

This was an amazing experience. Julie was so helpful and so talented that the experience was positive and fruitful from start to finish. Her emphasis on the final product was a very helpful way to focus our efforts. We love the artwork now hanging on our walls at home. Eileen F., Chevy Chase, MA

Julie has an amazing and unique point of view – she has mastered her craft and will deliver beautiful photographs that you can display as art in your home. She has taken photographs of our family three times over the past six years and each time has consistently delivered gorgeous photographs that perfectly capture those fleeting moments in my children’s and family’s lives that we will cherish forever. Her entire process is so thoughtful – from the initial consultation where she helps determine from you what particular essence or mood you would like to have conveyed in your photographs, to her simple and easy wardrobe tips that will aid you as you make your family’s clothing selections, to the final viewing consultation where she artfully listens to hear from you exactly what it is you want to achieve with her photographs and then guides you to making the ideal selection. Julie is a delight to work with. She is wonderful with kids, a consummate professional and a true artist.   Teresa Bernstein, Washington, DC

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the beautiful photos. We received them last week and were finally able to really sit down and look at them over the weekend at length. We are truly pleased with the results. Our Liam’s dynamic and charming personality virtually shines through each photo along with his big blue eyes,. The clarity of each photo is amazing. Thank you for all your patience and advice in guiding us through the selection process. I’ve been [working] for the past two weeks with virtually zero downtime, so it was really a treat to receive your beautifully presented package of photographs. We look forward to getting the mantel-specific ones mounted, framed and either on the mantel or on the wall above our mantel very soon. The office photos will shortly be featured in prime locations in our respective offices so that we can show off Liam (and your terrific work). Our parents are eager to see the ones earmarked for them, and we know they will be thrilled to see the final product. Maura G., Silver Spring, MD

I love our new photos. They remind me of the beauty of parenting and raising our twin daughters. I often look at them when times are hard to move me back to the love my family brings. [When I look at the images] I see a complicated life rendered with a bit less chaos. Your photos are always insightful and gorgeous. You have a true talent for family photography, which is not easy to do well since there are so many personalities moving in different directions. Dina P., Washington, DC
