Growing up, I always knew Julie as being timid and easy to get a laugh out of. It seemed as if she spent most of her time smiling or laughing at her brother's crew's antics, and as a member of the facetious few, I always enjoyed the affirming chortle. Being shy and reserved, there was always a sense of mystery about her that when combined with her quirky personality and pretty smile, made her quite the catch. Today, Julie is still the same quirky girl, except that she traded the timidity for plain ol' spunk; however, her smile is still amazing. It was an honor to shoot my good friend's maternity photos in celebration of her first child with her beloved, Luis. Congrats to them! She's going to make them a very happy family.
