|Hi, I'm Julie ... artist, photographer, potter, etc. I am so happy you are here! I consider this blog my creative journal where I can share my recent work, ideas and dreams, and lots of little details about my life. Please make yourself at home. Whether you are a bride-to-be, a photographer, or just a visitor, I hope you will find inspiration here and even become a friend.|
I will be the first to admit ... Valentines Day is not my favorite holiday. I'm not sure what it is about all those heart shaped doiles and boxes of candy that just make me wonder if Hallmark isn't conspiring against all of us. However ... now that I'm married to the sweetest guy on earth I have a completely new and changing understanding of love and romance. Valentines Day certainly feels different now than it did when I was a single girl in college watching re-runs of Sex in the City and wondering if the phone would ever ring. tmi? whatever.
My point is that Valentines Day is what you make of it. And if you are interested in making your romance more romantic ... your love life more loving ... if you'd like to quiken your heart beat, remind yourself of the most special thing you have in life, oh and have some pictures along with all that ... then you MUST do a Beloved Session. I can't think of a better Valentines Day gift. I can't think of a better gift for ANY occasion.
AND just to be awesome for such an awesome holiday ... I'm doing a special 30% off Valentines Day Special for all Beloved Sessions scheduled before February 14th. Umm yeah ... call me asap. Spots will fill up faster than you can say "cadbury eggs" (oops, wrong holiday). I'll be in East Tennessee January 25-27. The rest of the time I'll be in Lexington, KY. Spots are limited! So email me to get details and schedule your session.
I'll let the pictures and the beautiful people do the rest of the talking.
Thank you so much for the engagement photo shoot you did for Robbie and I! We were both so nervous and you really made us feel at ease. Giving us games, activities, and stories to tell really helped us take our minds off being photographed and allowed us to just be ourselves. The best part was when you asked us to retell our story. After being together for over 2 1/2 years, it was neat to go back to when we first started dating and relive those moments. Thank you for a relaxing and very special experience!! -Sara & Robbie
I just wanted to email to let you know that our photo session with you will go down as the sweetest, most intimate, most touching moments of my life besides having my daughter. The session with you took us away from the world and placed us in a blanket of love. Sometimes I would completely forget that you were even there … not in a bad way. But in the way that I fell in love with Brandon all over again, and in this world at those moments there was not another soul alive. Somehow some of the things I felt before that were unhealthy for my marriage and my life, they have drifted away like the insecurities were never there.
Thank you for a life changing session. Thank you for putting us back into the honeymoon state. You helped remind me how far I have come and how far I am going to go with this wonderful man and thank you for that too. I love you for what you have done and I love you for what your going to do for other married couples. Thank you so very much again and I can't wait to see the pictures. -Brenda & Brandon
