Hi, I'm Julia

It’s okay to be selfish if it means rediscovering your own power and happiness.

I had such the pleasure to photograph this Queen Miss A. We met up together at my studio near Vilano Beach, St. Augustine, FL and started the magic! ✨ She has never done a boudoir session of her own, but that didn’t stop her from following through the guidance which in turn brought these stunning images.


Our greatest accomplishments always sit outside of our comfort zones.

You ladies are not the only ones who transform through your boudoir experiences. Each one of
you gives me a new piece to myself and to my art. Each session we both grow.

I know exactly how difficult it is to step outside of where we are comfortable. I know it’s so hard
to do things that are scary. Guess what though, you were built to do hard things.

You were born with resilience and strength. You have already made it through the most difficult
moments of your life and you’re still here. So get out there love, and push through your own boundaries. You never know what waits just on the other side of them.



If you are dying to do a session with me but you’re worried about all the minor details like outfits and manicures, rest assured that those details matter much less than you think they do.

It’s just me and you in my studio. I just need you to listen to my voice and let go of all your worries, your doubts, and your fears. Let go. Show me your you. I’ll guide you through a boudoir experience you will love and cherish.

“You have to choose yourself, even when others refuse to. Self-love is choosing yourself and choosing yourself is self-care. You’re entertaining the wrong people because you’re struggling with loving yourself. It’s okay to take a break, a moment for yourself. It’s okay to be selfish if it means rediscovering your own power and happiness.”

Something else was there too, inside my brain, urging me to not back out. “You need this,” it whispered, so quietly I wasn’t even sure I’d heard it. But it was there, subconsciously changing my outlook on such a daunting prize...
