Hi I’m Julie. Thanks for stopping by my website. If you’re here, you are likely looking for a photographer to capture adorable photos of your newborn, your children and family or a beautiful headshot or branding photos of your business. Take a peek around my site and feel free to reach out if you have any questions. In the meantime, here’s a little about me.
Growing up my Stepdad always had his Minolta or video camera in hand- I soon became interested and was given a small camera for my 8th birthday. I can’t even tell you the rolls of film that I went through! This continued into my teens and as an adult, at any family gathering it was usually me taking the photos-capturing those memories that we continue to look back upon.
I took our youngest son to have a baby session done- he was our last, or so I thought! I wanted to have those memories that we could look back at. I remember coming home and saying to my husband, I REALLY want to do this! For Christmas that year, I saved up my gift cards & went an purchased a starter camera- a Sony A33 to be be exact. You see I had inherited my Stepdad’s Minolta who ended up passing away when I was 12 and I really wanted to be able to use it. I knew that there was a chance that I could use the lenses with the new camera body and I really wanted to- if it was possible. I took workshops, bought all kinds of books, harassed my photographer friends to let me assist them- I taught myself as much as I could since going back to school wasn’t an option at the time. After all , I had built in models with 4 kids that ranged from 6 months to 14 years- so why not practice on them, and family! I finally launched Julie Rock Photography in July 2012 and here I am now-6 years later!!!

“I recently used Julie Rock for headshots and promo photos of my office. She was professional, yet was able to help our staff have a lot of fun, ensuring we captured not just great images, but their personalities as well. She was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end and the photos turned out better than I imagined.”

"I have been waiting since my son was born 4.5 years ago to get family portraits done and am beyond thrilled I chose Julie Rock to be the one to finally photograph us. She was able to wrangle my antsy kids who didn't want to sit still and with her amazingly keen eye, calm temperament and quick trigger finger, she was able to give us pictures that far exceeded even my highest expectations. I can not recommend Julie enough."Kennedy Family
