Julie is a beauty and fashion photographer in central Florida. She is originally from a small town in northern New York where her passion in photography developed (pun intended) her senior year. She tells of her first time walking into the darkroom, illuminated only by the red safety light, watching the magic of a picture slowly appearing on the paper floating in developer chemicals… and claims “it was love at first sight!” Then for Christmas that year she received her first “real” camera and the passion was born.
Julie has had her work published in many international publications including Gladys Magazine, Prolific Quarterly, Emal Magazine, 7Roar Magazine, La Petite Magnifique Magazine, Bella Gladys, Family times Magazine and Florida Style magazine as well as other platforms such as business webpages, advertisements, movie posters, etc. She has worked with several modeling agencies, clothing designers, behind the scenes doing promotional shots for two movies and for 4 years with Family Times Magazine. She describes seeing a magazine on the store’s rack with her work on the cover or a movie poster on display in a theater’s window as something that never stops being exciting for her! She also loves to see people use her images for their modeling comp cards or social media profile pictures!
Through her photography Julie says she has been lucky to meet many wonderful people; babies to senior citizens, families, high school seniors, models, engaged couples, newlyweds, and new parents. She also expresses gratitude to the amazing mentors that have helped her grow. Photography has also presented her with the opportunity for travel like covering the Miss International World and Miss Latina International competition cruise, shooting several clothing and bathing suit designs in the Bahamas. Her most recent exciting travel job was a two-part assignment on the Italian island of Ischia to document both a week-long wedding extravaganza and photograph professional opera singers at a masterclass.
No matter what job she is doing, Julie focuses (couldn’t help the pun) her all on it and hopes the client leaves feeling great with the memory of a fun and positive experience!
