Anyone who knows me knows that I love photography. I follow (stalk) quite a few photographers because I admire their work and talent. Luke has had quite a few photo shoots in his first year but never studio portraits. I’ve been following Julie Newell for quite some time and just love her work. She has great lighting, props, and color. Visit her blog and you’ll know what I mean.
Julie photographed Luke for his “smash the cake” in early March. When I walked into her studio, I just knew we were going to have great portraits. Julie used all natural lighting and had almost every cool prop you can imagine. My suggestion to anyone looking for a photographer is to do some research and use the one with the photography style you like because you will be displaying the photos on your wall and seeing them everyday. Don’t just keep the digital images stored in a CD/box.
Below are Luke’s 1 yr portraits, which I can’t stop staring at. Her pictures of Luke are what I see when I see Luke…through a mother’s eyes. We couldn’t ask for a nicer photographer and her assistant, Lauren, is a doll! Oh, did I mention Julie was 8 months pregnant at the time? She’s so talented!
