about-julie Home

I landed in this spot for a reason.  Feeling so utterly happy as I wake each morning watching the Outer Banks sunrise from my bed, leaking in through the wood shutters on my little family, the lights that are my life.

Light leads the way of my most heartfelt photos and videos, expressions of my life, my friends lives, my clients lives.  From my heart to the lens to tell a story. Smile. Raw. Honest. Blossoming.  To my higher source, to God, thank you for life, and this amazingly lovely job that you have given me, I’m living life in love. -Julie
