My name is Julie. I am a Portrait Photographer.

I know how it feels to hate to see my self in bad photos. I work with women who feel like they have lost themselves along the way. Who feel self continuous think that no-one could capture a lovely photo of them. I love to bring forward their true inner beauty, to bring forth their feelings and needs. I know what it feels like to lose a sense of oneself and to put everyone first. I love the creative process of working with people and connecting with women and helping to give them their sense of self back. 

By transforming you back into someone you no longer thought you were. Bringing back a sense of self, confidence and a smile - the real smile! Without judgement in a safe, non-judgmental, loving, friendly and supportive space. 

By showing you the most beautiful photos you have seen of yourself, in perhaps the longest time, or ever. To give you the freedom to express yourself, put yourself first, to be listened to, seen and understood. 

I know beautiful looks like. I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I know what it feels like to not be comfortable in your own skin.  I know what it feels like to hide myself, not wanting to be in happy snaps and selfies, knowing how I feel when I see them. I want to show you how beautiful you really are and how other people see you. I want you to understand that... I GET IT!

My clients are gorgeous, everyday women of all shapes and sizes, of every age and background. My mission is to help other women move toward that goal too: to connect with women, take photographs that change how they see themselves and have perhaps even share some fun and laughs with them while doing this.

I challenge you to let me take the most amazing photos you have seen of yourself, to change the way you see yourself, and to have maybe even some fun while doing it. It's my job to make you look and feel incredible. Not many people actually likes going to have their photos done, me included. But at the end of the day it really is less painful than a dentist visit :-)

I usually don’t go on my own to photo shoots but as soon as I arrived Julie welcomed me into her studio and made me feel very comfortable straight away. Her posing skills and professionalism made the whole experience a dream shoot
