Meet the Artist

Have some insight into the creative mind behind the lens

julie wagner the newborn artistWell hello! My name is Julie Wagner, and I am The Newborn Artist. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my website! I invite you to read a little bit more about me and my heart for capturing birth & newborns, learn about my studio and the mission behind The Newborn Artist.

First and foremost, I am a daughter of the One True King. Ephesians 2:10 says – For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. These words fuel me. Colossians 3:23 says – Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. My work ethic stems from this verse. I am not a photographer because I want fame and fortune. I am an artist, a photographer because I want to touch the hearts of my clients by capturing a moment so special in their lives, that they will always remember that day with a smile on their faces. 10% of every penny that comes into the studio goes back to the local community of Puyallup and our surrounding areas.

5 fun facts about me…

-I have two incredibly creative and innovative children, who are both home schooled. I believe children should encouraged to discover & learn what they love early on so that way they can spread their wings and be amazing humans.

-I sing. A lot. I can guarantee you will be serenaded by me at some point in time during a session or a consult.

-I am obsessed with fancy espresso. HATE drip coffee… but give me a simple lactose free vanilla latte, and you’ll be my BFF.

-I have moved over 30 times in my lifetime. I lived on Guam for 5 years, lived in Houston for a short stint of my life, grew up in SoCal and have been up here in the PNW for 4 years now! I’m not going ANYWHERE- the PNW is where my heart belongs.

-I talk A LOT. I don’t know if that’s a fun fact about me, but why not share it? Thankfully with age, I’ve learned when to talk and when to keep quiet.


Authenticity is so important in today’s fast paced life. Which is one of the reasons why I find capturing birth, newborns and maternity so appealing.
Birth is so raw. Newborns are so fresh. Mama’s are incredibly stunning… and I love capturing it all.

Capturing it all, in it’s perfect imperfections.
Capturing God’s beauty in life.

I hope you have gotten a glimpse into who I am, who I strive to be and most of all… a glimpse into the artist behind the lens.
