I constantly get asked what my WHY is! WHY Photography?? The answer has changed over the years but I vividly remember starting for myself. Creativity has been a huge part of my life from the start. After starting a corporate career and raising my young kids I felt like I had lost some of my individuality. I was in a weird place where I felt like a great mother, friend and wife but I was missing something just for me. My dad tossed me a NikonD750 and the rest was history. I just remember thinking.. THIS was it.. THIS is what I was missing. Fast forward to 2022 and my WHY is more focused on connecting with new clients and sharing my knowledge and ability with all of you.
I live in Pickerington, Ohio... It's about as MIDWEST as it gets. It's cold in the winter and hot as hell in the summer. My grandmother was the real MVP and helped me escape Ohio a few times a year. She owned her own travel agency and I spent a large part of my childhood jumping in her caravan and heading across country. No destination just good ol family style vacation. Will Ohio always be my home, maybe... but traveling is in my soul. If you're based outside of Ohio I travel ALL OVER THE WORLD!!
Outside of photography I'm building a life with my college sweetheart in the heart of Ohio. We have two beautiful babies Westin & Reese. They light up my life with their unpredictably and carefree personalities. I drink way too much red wine and have a terrible obsession with Free People and Chic-Fil-A. Getting to know me is pretty easy.. I'm your grade A extrovert!!
"Julia is truly an artist. I was honored to work with others who share a creative vision and know how to bring it to life. She is fantastic and such a good person. She completely outdid herself and gave me everything I wanted and MORE. True pieces of artwork. I will cherish my gallery forever.
Julia is by far one of the BEST Photographers I've ever worked with. So fun, easy to chat with and she makes me feel so comfortable every time! I am not the best at getting comfortable in front of the camera and she makes it so easy and seamless. Thankful to have found her.
My Husband and I LOVE working with Julia! We hired her for our engagement photos, Wedding and have used her for many other photo sessions in-between. She makes the planning process so easy! She is personable, flexible, and reliable. She sends sneak peeks soon after the event and gets the remaining photos back in a timely manner. We are excited to continue working with her in the future!
