Holding the Camera

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
– Mae West

Self_Portrait I can still vividly remember always having a camera with me from the time I was in grade school. My first one was a clunky plastic film camera in elementary school. I would bring it to school and on field trips, to my friends birthday party’s and ice skating. I loved taking photos, I loved making scrap books and photo albums to save all of my prints. I don’t remember exactly when, but my parents bought me a Nikon Cool Pix, which would go into my purse in high school. I bought that little camera to ski club, and football games, to bowling and prom. My love of photography followed me to college where I was able to take my first photography class… and loved it.
My first DSLR camera was a Nikon D40x. It was amazing! I still have that camera, and take it on hikes with me because it is still light and reliable. Two decades later and I am still taking more pictures than I know what to do with, filling up boxes and photo albums.

This is a place where I can share at least some of those images with you, and maybe you will allow me the honor of being at your wedding, family reunion, or baby’s first birthday. So please, browse and read and comment!

What else makes me tick… working on the houses that my fiancé and I restore. They can be seen here. My two sweet dogs that you will probably see posts of on this site, because I can’t help myself. I love board games, and Sleepy Time Vanilla tea. I like being active and  exploring new places with my fiancé Cole. I can’t wait to hear from you and how I can capture the most important moments of your life for you.

Cheers –  Julia
