“We hired Julie to take our family pictures recently and it was a great experience. She made us feel so comfortable. She is very friendly and professional at the same time. She is very easy to work with and she was really good with my kids!! I loved all of the pictures she took. I will definitely hire her again!! I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a photographer!! Thank you Julie!!”   ~ Lisa

“Thank you, Julie, for a fun and gorgeous family photo shoot! Julie has an eye for beautiful settings and a knack for keeping everyone naturally poised. Even my reluctant 6 year old was soon the star of the show. He went from "I don't want to do this" to gleefully posing for photos and taking all of Julie's prompts and cues. We loved the variety of natural background settings and light that Julie found, and we appreciated that she kept things moving and fun for us the whole time. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie Branson Photography!”   ~  Erika

“Julie has photographed my family now for 3 years of family holiday photos and every year I am blown away by her, and so are our friends and family. She has taken photos that appear to be from a magazine just after and before toddler meltdowns and husband grimaces. She is patient, creative, supportive and nurturing. I don't think we could have our photos taken by anyone else. She arrives prepared and smiling, able to work around pouring rain and uninterested pets, all the while making you feel like the most beautiful family in the world. She captures moments of deep feelings between us that I never dreamed possible. Julie's work is priceless and we are beyond grateful to have her locally.”  ~ Danielle

“Participating in a session with Julie was a delight. She was professional, accommodating, and just made us feel comfortable around the camera. She is skilled at ‘seeing’ the shots ahead of time and placing us in the right positions in order for the lighting to be at it's best. We unexpectedly had to change locations due to high winds and Julie just rolled with it and had no problem creating a beautiful session out of a totally different location. She worked very well with the kids and had them engaged and enjoying the process the whole time. I would highly recommend Julie for any type of photography session, as she is talented, professional, gentle, and just fun and easy to be with. Our photo's turned out so amazing...we were impressed!”  ~  Holly
