I’m Julie

Hi Friends, let me introduce myself! I go by Julie (Anne is my middle name). I grew up in the Kawartha Lakes and continue to reside here. I am forever day dreaming of all the places I am to explore. 

From a young age I have always shown an interest in photography. Constantly chasing sunsets, and forever having my parents buy be disposable cameras for every holiday (showing my age here)-  I never went on a field trip without my handy disposy until I was able to purchase my first “real” camera when I was 18.

I am an empath who loves her coffee- the smell the taste, all of it! Some of my favourite things are wood burning fire places, the sound of rain on a roof top, being near water & the simplicity of a Sunday morning.

Can you explain your style?

I am a lifestyle photographer that strives to photograph moments as they happen with true authenticity.

What are your costs/fees?

Vary depending on what type of photo shoot you are looking for, location, timing etc.

Contact me, I’ll answer ALL your questions promptly!

Do you provide every photo you shoot?

Every shoot varies as you can imagine!
You will receive ALL the images I feel are captured nicely. I never set a limit on how many I provide but each session I do guarantee a minimum amount of images – all depending on what type of session we are doing.

For weddings, I want to give you images that specifically tell your love story.

"I can't recommend Julie enough when choosing a photographer. The photos we received were truly amazing and she captured real and natural moments in our family with ease. Her personality and sense of humour helped everyone feel relaxed and made for a fun environment and photos that don't feel posed!"

"Julie is the very best at what she does, and I would recommend her to anyone. My fiancé and I were feeling uncomfortable before our engagement photos as we are not the photo-type. Julie made us feel comfortable the whole time and made it so natural. Her personality and laugh is contagious!!! She has an eye for capturing the best photos, we loved every single one of them!"

"Julie has an eye for drawing out images that are genuine and real. She gives you space to allow the authentic moments to shine through. When I think about my experience of doing newborn shoots for my baby girl, I'm brought back to exactly how I felt: pure joy, feeling safe and so comfortable. Julie's talent speaks for itself through her work but also in the stories of her client's experiences in how personable she is. I believe this makes Julie a perfect fit as a photographer - quality work combined with a quality connection."

"Going into my photo shoot with Julie I was very self-conscious about being in front of the camera. But honestly within the first 5 minutes of being around her I began to let my guard down. She knows how to make someone feel so comfortable with her positive attitude and warm and fun personality! She has such an eye for photography, she will capture a side of yourself you didn't even know you had. Please give her the opportunity to capture your family moments, your candid moments, and your vulnerable moments."

"Julie is an incredible photographer! She really knows how to capture the special moments. (The ones that you want to hold on to forever!) Her work is stunning! Her photos really tell your story... Julie's warm and bubbly personality makes the entire experience enjoyable. She feels like a friend from the very beginning. She easily establishes a positive rapport with the kids and makes them laugh. (We all appreciate her wonderful sense of humour!) Julie is able to make everyone comfortable and connects so well with others. The photography session feels natural... even for the people who are more hesitant about having their photos taken. I whole-heartedly recommend Julie as a photographer. Her photos are displayed in my living room. They are truly a work of art and remind me of the beautiful moments that make up our life stories."

"I highly recommend Julie Anne photography. I first used Julie when she was starting out last year to capture a beautiful set of maternity photos. They turned out better then I could have imagined. I've continued to use Julie over the past year including an entire family photoshoot consisting of individual group family shoots, the whole family, mother-daughter and niece and nephew combinations. Despite the rainy, cold weather, our pictures were amazing, and Julie's spirits were high. Recently we did a 1st birthday / Easter shoot for my daughter, which even included baby ducks! The laughter and fun we had while capturing these amazing moments will last a lifetime, thanks to Julie's amazing talents. Will continue to use Julie Anne photography as my daughter grows and our family expands."

"As first time parents we are so worried about getting our family pictures taken but Julie came to our house and made our pictures so fun!! I dont think we stopped laughing and she caught all the perfect moments of our little family. My husband isnt a picture guy but whenever I say who's doing them he is much more relaxed and actually excited for the pictures ! She will forever be our family photographer :)"

"I've known Julie a long time. She has always been someone who lights up a room. She is kind, laid back, and so easy to talk to, which is reflected in her photography. She took both our maternity and newborn photos and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. The result was photos that were so genuine and candid, you can feel the love when you look at them! She captured such raw emotion in both shoots, the pictures ooze happiness. A treat to work with!"


I look forward to hearing from you.
