The Real Me!

My portraits make me look professional, yet approachable. They show a confident, empowered woman. They look like me, the “Real Me”! I look kind, friendly, relaxed, comfortable, and happy! That is ME! I like myself and I have self-confidence. I am proud of the adult I have become and truly like these pictures of myself!

Portrait of a Woman

Julie has a gift for capturing the essence of personality and freezing that moment in time.  She created stunning pictures of a wife, a mother, and most importantly a woman.

Julie has a gift

Julie has a gift for seeing the beauty in a person and capturing that beauty with her camera.  She took some of the best pictures I have ever had of myself.

I need to see my own beauty and to continue to be reminded that I am enough, that I am worthy of love without effort, that I am beautiful, that the texture of my hair and the shape of my curves, the size of my lips, the color of my skin, and the feelings that I have are all worthy and okay.

Trace's thoughts about her portraits and photo-session at Teal Gate Studio

I would recommend that every woman do this for themselves, you don’t need to have a special reason, just have that glamorous day.

It was a lot of fun that day... a lot of fun.
