“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

— Aaron Siskind

I'm Julie, Your Photographer

I was born and raised in Belgium, and moved to New Orleans about 8 years ago. Since then, I have been photographing family stories and weddings in the greater New Orleans area, and beyond.

Curiosity has always been a driving force for me.
I love traveling to places less traveled, and I am passionate about kayaking in the Louisiana swamps.

Beautiful stories are all around us. When I’m around people, I love learning what drives them, how they connect, what makes them happy.
As a photographer, I want to learn about you, document the uniqueness of your life, your family, your wedding.

Family Photography

Family photo sessions can be fun, relaxed, and a real life memory, captured. Portraits or a day in the life photo session, I will always aim to capture you with honesty and authenticity.

Wedding Photography

Your wedding day is yours, and yours only. As your wedding photographer, I am here to help you remember everything you experienced, and felt, and show you the beautiful things you couldn’t even see for yourself.

In a portrait session we create photos that show what you look like, but even more so who you are. Every portrait session is unique because so are you. It is extremely important to me that you feel at ease, confident and happy, with your photos but also with the entire experience of having your photos taken.

Real moments, authentic photos

The moments you didn’t plan for, the different angles, your feelings, the absurdities, the beauty of you. These are all part of your story, on your wedding day, a normal day with your family or with friends, even at work.
