A session with The Newborn Artist isn't your typical photo session- it's a one of a kind experience that is tailored to each family we work with. Julie documents moments that are authentic, raw and real between a parent and newborn. Located in beautiful Puyallup/Tacoma area of Washington, tucked in between Seattle and Olympia, The Newborn Artist Studio is a calming & neutral color based studio that focuses on natural and organic posing, with a strong emphasis in capturing authentic moments between parents and their newborn baby.

More About Jules

I’ve been photographing newborns and birth for over 10 years now, and I can tell you this- I am so thankful for each and every single client who has given me the honor to photograph such special moments in their lives. 
It would be such a blessing to get to know you and your growing family, so please browse around my site and let’s connect. And if you want to get to know some random facts about me, read below! 
(ps. if you're viewing the desktop version, the amazing video was made by my sweet friends, Jordan and Nichole Gibbons)

family is everything...

I'm Julie Wagner, The Newborn Artist

Time is fleeting. Our babies are only little for a short while- they literally grow up in the blink of an eye. Dont put off the photographs because of insecurities (hey moms... I'm talking to you lovelies!). At The Newborn Artist, we want to celebrate with you and your growing family, which is why we are a full service studio- offering professional heirloom quality products, a client closet for choosing outfits, and even have a professional hair and makeup artist on staff! Dont let the little things worry you- let us take care of that for you. 

celebrate life.
document fleeting moments. 
love wildly. 

our mission

I sing. A lot. I can guarantee you or your baby will be serenaded by me at some point in time during a session. I’m actually a worship leader at my church (shout out to Motion Church South Hill and Celebrate Recover on Friday Nights!)

weekends are for singing...

I am the Co-Owner of a Doula Agency called The Birth Society. I am a MA (Master Clinical Aromatherapist), Pediatric CST (Craniosacral Therapist) and the resident Breastfeeding Coach.

I am obsessed with fancy espresso. HATE drip coffee… but give me a quad shot on ice in a venti cup with a heavy splash of almond or oat milk and some vanilla… you’ll find your way into my heart.
I'm currently loving Dutch Bros Raspberry Truffle Latte with Oat Milk. Its a sweet treat! 

All the coffee. 

I have a deep love for healthy living and wellness, which integrates well into my daily life. My family and I have been exclusively using Monat products on our hair, skin and now their wellness line for 4 years. Im a HUGE advocate for things that I love- items that are tried and true. But enough of my Monat commercial! 

good hair & skin days are my favorite days... 

I have a HUGE heart for coaching. Business coaching. Sales coaching. Leadership is a huge part of my life and my testimony, and I'm a firm believer that leading by example is key to being a leader in whatever industry you're in. Getting into the trenches with my people. Loving my employees and treating them with respect and honoring them and praying for them is one of my secrets to success. 

Lead by example...
