“I booked a photo shoot because we don’t like to interrupt our family vacations with selfies and videos, but we often go home without a commemorating picture. The pictures Julie took weren’t just vacation photos. I cried when I saw them, because she captured something much more intangible about our family. Our photos captured how we feel about each other, the joy we were having on our vacation, and what we find fun. They were candid and honest. I have nothing but the highest praise – we are privileged to have such priceless family photos. Plus, arranging a photo shoot was effortless.”
