About Julie

My photography journey started over 10 years ago as a staff photographer for my college newspaper. At that time I didn’t know exactly where my camera and I would go together, but my love for babies & children lead me on the inevitable path of becoming a baby photographer. I’ve never looked back.

Since I opened my studio I have photographed over 600 newborns – and counting! I have trained with some of the most highly respected newborn photographers in the country and am always investing in my continuing education. I’m a firm believer in seizing any opportunity I can to learn and grow as an artist.

In addition to my training as a photographer, I also have over 8 years of experience working as a pediatric & maternity nurse. I feel so fortunate that I am able to be a part of this exciting time for so many new families as they transition into their new role of parenthood.

My work has been recognized both locally, having earned a 2017 Reader’s Choice Award for the city of Beverly, and on the national level. In 2017 I earned the title of International Bronze Photographer of the Year for earning merit scores on all of the images I submitted into International Photographic Competition and upgraded that medal to a Silver in 2019 and to Platinum in 2021. I am an active member of Professional Photographers of America and am currently working towards the completion of my Master of Photography degree.

My work is currently on display at Love at First Sight Ultrasound located in Danvers, MA.

In a nutshell...


I spend a LOT of time around babies. In addition to my 10+ years of photography experience, I also work as a mother-baby nurse. Between the studio & the hospital, I work with newborns and their families almost every day of the week and am more than comfortable handling and soothing your precious little one. Some people call me a "baby whisperer!"

Detail oriented

The smallest details matter the most to me. Little fingers and toes placed just so, stray hairs tamed, perfectly coordinating accessories. These are all fine tuned before I take the shot. I've been known to spend extra time making sure the pose is exactly how I want it before I even pick up the camera. Clients often comment on my level of patience when it comes to getting things just right.

Top-notch imagery

My work has been recognized by one of the world's leading photography organizations for its technical excellence and creative merit. I have earned both bronze and silver medals in international level photographic competitions. I bring this same level of artistry to each and every one of my sessions.
