Hello, I'm julie,

I specialize in contemporary magazine style portraits and head shots.  Each session is designed to help you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera.  Before I ever click the shutter, we begin with a pre-shoot consultation so I can learn how you want to be photographed. 

On the day of your session you start out with professional hair and makeup so you will feel camera ready.   Some clients prefer a natural look, while others go full glam!  You will be photographed in up to 5 different outfits.  You can choose to be photographed in my indoor studio or in our private woods and pastures surrounding the studio.

I tell my clients that it is not their job to be "photogenic".   It's my job as your photographer to light and pose you in ways that look great in front of the camera. You will look and feel AMAZING.  It is a complete pampering experience designed just for you!  It my personal mission to create the best portraits that you have seen of yourself!

Teal Gate Studio is located on a wooded 80 acre farm in Northern Kentucky, 30 miles south of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.   It is a peaceful place for you to feel nurtured, comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

I look forward to meeting you!



Images have the power to change how you see yourself; to switch your personal narrative to one that is kinder and more loving to the person who looks back at you in the mirror everyday.  When you see yourself with eyes of love, acceptance, and being good enough now, it fuels your ability to love and accept others as they are. This is my way of quietly changing the world - helping infuse it with more love, one person at a time.

You are ready NOW to be photographed....just as you are!
