The Underwater World at Rebel Yoga Studio

Although it may not feel like it, summer really is around the corner and I’m looking forward to kicking off the season of creating art underwater with new and old friends! 

To get things started, I’ll be having an art opening at Rebel Yoga studio in Chestnut Hill (8020 Germantown Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19118). Join me for the opening reception on May 4th from 6-9pm to view of my Underwater World photographs. Click here for more details. 

To entice those who have been interested in an underwater portrait session, I’ll be giving away $50 gift certificates at the opening to put towards your session this summer. 

I truly hope to see you all for a fun night out filled with art and yoga!


Underwater Yoga

I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful yogi, Sarah, of Rebel Yoga, underwater over the summer. Here are a few favorites from our session.


Underwater Portrait Session Video!!

I'm finally posting a video that my very talented friend, Erika Schoof, shot for me to give folks a little taste of what I get to see underwater while taking my underwater photos. The video was shot during one of my favorite sessions of the summer of my friend, and sound healer, Jennifer. I hope you enjoy!

Underwater Babies!!

   Recently I had the wonderful privilege of teaming up with the amazing, Infant Swim Coach/Lifesaver, Barb Gorman,,  to photograph babies underwater that have taken her swim course. The images will be used on her website. It was one of my favorite shoots of all time capturing these little angels in flight! Here's a little taste of what we captured that day... 


Manayunk-Roxborough Art Show May 7th!

I'm excited to be a part of an upcoming group Art show at the Manayunk/Roxborough Art Center on May 7th from 12:00-3:00pm. I truly hope you can come out for a fun afternoon to support local artists at 419 Green Lane, Phila, PA 19128. 

Nude with Pearls

I can't believe we'll be opening the pool in just 2 months and I'm getting excited to meet and create lots of new art with some fabulous folks. Here's one that I've never posted and love:)

Beautiful Melissa

  These photos of this pretty mama, Melissa, were taken after a day of photographing her children. Although these images were not planned, I knew how hard this lady has been working on transforming her body into the fit and strong lady she has become. The photos were taken to  celebrate her hard work paid off. You Go Girl!!! 

Under the Sea

   Here's a little taste of a super fun shoot of cousins that I shot underwater last summer. I put the collage together of the five kids for the grandparent's Christmas present. Thankfully it was a hit:)  Thank you Mama Melissa and Nicole for the pleasure of photographing your beautiful children!


Professional Ballet Dancer -Cameron

    My dream of working with professional dancers came true this summer and the first to model underwater for me was this incredible guy, Cameron Auble-Branigan. There are way too many photos I love of him and can't wait to share many more! Thank you Cameron for being so Awesome to work with!! 


Pennsylvania Ballet Dancer- Lovely Nardia

   This summer was packed full of wonderful photo shoots in the pool including one of my favorite sessions with the lovely, Nardia. As you can probably tell from this photo, she is a professional dancer with the Pennsylvania Ballet. I had the privilege of photographing a few professional dancers and I have to say my mind was totally blown away by this lady. Although she had no experience modeling underwater, she was one of the most gorgeous graceful, powerful people I've ever photographed. This is just a taste of my sessions with them and look forward to posting more soon!  Thank you Nardia!

Julia's FineArt Opening at El Poquito!

Last night was incredible. I had an opening of my fine art, (new and classic pieces), at El Poquito Restaurant in Chestnut Hill, PA. The turnout was way more than I expected and everyone seemed to have a great time. I'm so grateful for experiences like these. A place filled with so many people I care so much about. Thanks so much for all who took time out of their busy schedules to be there. Here are a few photos capturing the night....
