Welcome to my Blog

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.

Wedding :: California ...

A while back I posted that I would be taking some time off during December and January. I really needed some "me time" to refresh and find some new inspiration. I want 2010 to be a really amazing year for me and my business (which is really just me!).

So the big highlight during my time off is that I took a trip to California for a big photo workshop with one of my hero photographers: Jessica Claire, http://www.jessicaclaire.net

I have SO many gorgeous photos to post I don't even know where to begin. This is just a sneak peak because there are a TON more of these beautiful images that I will post later this week.

While I was in California my generous friends Nathan and Sarah let me stay with them for the entire week. They also loaned me a car for the entire time and fed me a lot of delicious food. Nathan was one of my very best friends through high school and its such a treat to get to spend time with him and see his family grow!!! He and Sarah have a brand new baby girl, Emma Marie. They are the happiest little family ever - so I think these photos are pretty wonderful.

Emma Marie. She is full of curiosity and personality. I am not sure I've ever met a happier baby. She smiled and giggled almost the whole week I was there! She is a beautiful baby girl with a head full of hair and heart full of wonder. I love her!

Sarah is perfect for motherhood. I love the sheer joy of this one.
And good Lord that California sunlight!

I met this fantastic couple by way of my friends Adam and Julia Franklin. Adam and Julia weren't able to meet with me because of scheduling conflicts - which bummed me out. But my friend Julia so generously connected me to this lovely couple Shada and Mason - who just so happened to be super models.

They were also hilarious to work with and we had so much fun climbing around on rocks and watching the sun set.

I am so excited about starting of 2010 with some really amazing stuff! I can't wait to show you more of these sessions this week ... then I have FIVE more photo shoots this weekend to be followed by a wedding in Key West the last weekend of this month. Its going to be pretty much fabulous and very busy here on the blog for the next while. Stay tuned my friends. And lets get some comments going in 2010 - I love to know you're out there!
