There are many reasons to have a professional photographer create images of your pet: you're welcoming a new addition to the family and want to document your first year together, you need a high quality image for a holiday card, or sadly have a treasured pet nearing the end of their days with you. Whatever your reason, I specialize in creating animal imagery that tells your pet’s unique story. From horses to hamsters, puppies to ponies, pussycats to parrots, no creature is too great or too small! My candid and insightful photographs reflect each animal's true personality and can be made into stunning wall art, memory books or traditional prints.

Your photo session can be held in my studio near Marshall, VA, which has both indoor and safe, outdoor space in beautiful woodland. Alternatively, I can bring my studio to either your home or your favorite outdoor space. I travel across the throughout the northern and central regions of Virginia and Washington DC Metro areas. Email me at to schedule a consultation or make an appointment directly online. Or call me on 540 905 2269 and we can chat about how a session works and how I work with even the most timid of pet to create a beautiful portrait and capture their personality in print.

"Julie was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the moment I initially contacted her she was very warm, accommodating, and professional!! Her work speaks for itself. My session included 4 dogs and a one year old child..... talk about patience AND TALENT!! I couldn’t believe it actually existed until I met Julie. I have worked with countless photographers and I can tell you there is NO comparison. Thank you Julie!!
