So when I say "your children and their children will thank you one day for being in pictures with them versus being behind the camera" it stems from personal experience. 
My goal for your family is to have beautiful portraits grace the walls of the home you dwell in, captured in a timeless portrait style that will withstand time and trends. So when you walk by those portraits in 10, 20, 30, 40 years... you remember the day when you had your new baby photographed in all their littleness and perfection. The smell of a newborn. The sounds of a newborn. The feeling you got when you held your newborn baby in your arms... 

That's my dream and wish for you. 

My faith and my family are my two most important factors in my life. My driving factors if you'd like to say... 

I'm Julie

why i am here

My Story

As a mom of my blended family with 3 teenagers, I can tell you from first hand experience- they really DO grow up in the blink of an eye. My oldest is about to head to college soon and my youngest is entering high school soon... don't miss out on documenting and proudly displaying the moments when your baby was little enough to tuck right into your arms. I promise you won't regret it. 

Why preserving moments in time are so important and precious... 

Every family that walks through my studio doors is so unique, so special and wonderful. And as an artist and business owner and just someone who loves people- it's my job to make you feel so special on your day with me! I promise to treat you and your family with the utmost care and kindness. 
I have a pretty extensive background with newborns as you can see above. Being a doula for almost 2 decades, a retired massage therapist specializing in infant craniosacral therapy, and a newborn educator, along with continuously growing my skill and craft as a newborn photographer, you are in good hands.   

What are the benefits of working with Julie, The Newborn Artist? 

Merrick K.

Maternity, birth, newborn, family and one year photos that I will treasure for my entire life. Julie was an incredible calming presence during my labor and traumatic birth.

The newborn photos of our little miracle are absolute perfection, and the one year photos of him in the same bucket are… there frankly aren’t words enough to describe my gratitude and love for these memories that have been captured. I am a client for LIFE.

Julie is super professional, hilarious and makes you feel right at ease. She has incredible different styles to use to capture unique photos of your babe!

 Being a first time momma, she made me feel welcome and gave me advice on nursing and more! She captured our little girl PERFECTLY and we have memories for a lifetime. Highly recommend her 100%

Working with The Newborn Artist was the best experience I have ever had. Julie was the most professional and caring person I have ever done business with. She not only helped capture one of the most import moments in my entire life but was also a true friend. I would not recommend anyone else for new born/ birth pictures besides her; She has our business for life. Julie your truly amazing thank you for helping us so tremendously you rock.

Brittany M.

Julie was amazing! She took so much time to get our newborn in the right pose! She also was so patient with my 4 and 2 year old who did not really want their picture taken at times. I loved all the poses and she moved our baby boy like he was molding clay, it was really fun to see!

SARAH + jordan b.  

Julie is such a great photographer, she has been my families photographer since I and my husbands first family photo and helped us celebrate both our children through photography.
Every photo I am in love with and is of high quality , Julie is also such a wonderful person to work with. I highly recommend The Newborn Artist!

Amy B.

We had a great experience with Julie, The Newborn Artist! She was so patient with our little girl and got the most amazing shots of her.

 She also has a great variety of textures/colors in swaddles, headbands, wraps and backdrops. It was great to just be able to show up and not have to think about "props" or other things. Highly recommend Julie to anyone.
