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.
