My Headshots-9.jpg

I am Julie Ryan, Portrait Photographer.

If you need me, you’re likely to find me sitting on the beach in the evening enjoying a glass of wine with my love. I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Dan, a mom to our sweet pitbull rescue, Akela, a lover of great design, and a dreamer. I was a hobbyist photographer for over a decade before I decided to make it my profession five years ago. I am a pizza connoisseur. I grew up in New Hampshire and am thrilled to now call Jacksonville, FL my home. I have a degree in Interior Design and enjoyed several years in the industry. I can’t turn down a cupcake, like, ever. I love to travel and I’m always up for exploring new places. I have a passion for photographing people and love to bring out the beauty within.

More than just a portrait session, we work with you to bring out your unique beauty, from wardrobe selection to providing professional hair and makeup to ensure you look your best, to skillfully directing throughout your entire shoot, with no limit on laughs and high fives along the way.
