"Absolutely amazing! Julia combines her genius, intuition and professional demeanor to create masterpieces that our family will cherish for generations to come. I was nine months pregnant - all I had to do was show up and Julia took care of the rest. Highly recommended for all of your henna and photography." - From Kristen S.
"Julia has been with me every step of the way on this transformational journey that has been the last year of my life, documenting with extraordinary talent and vision the true soul essence of every moment. She not only did my henna for my wedding, but she arrived perfectly on time on location in Big Sur (timing is very important with weddings!) assisted me getting ready, shot behind the scenes, captured every essential moment during the wedding (the kiss!), and stayed after the ceremony (on a cold beach!) to make sure she got all the beautiful shots capturing the scenery and my husband and I. When I got pregnant, she henna'd my belly twice, and took breathtakingly amazing magazine-worthy maternity shots. She has a very creative eye, and knows exactly what colors, positions, clothing, lighting will translate to a stunning image. She is impeccable with the processing and editing of the photos, I am very picky about what shots I like, and without saying anything I can trust that Julia will only pick the best shots, and then make them look even more amazing. It's trul mind-blowing what this woman can do!! She is SO talented and I can't say enough good things about her, on top of being the most talented artist I know (and this is the bay area, there are tons of them!) she is also a grounded, compassionate, responsible, sweet and lovely person to have the pleasure of being in the company of." - From Ashley S.
"I absolutely love being photographed by Julia! I feel so comfortable and we have such a great time together. She takes such amazing photos! I've been a part of two photo shoots with her and have amazing photos to show for it. I use her photos for my website, business page and soundcloud pages. She's very professional, on time and goes the extra mile to make everything perfect. I hope you enjoy your next photo shoot with Julia as much as I did." - From Jemineye H.
"I had the pleasure of having Julia do a photo shoot for me in Santa Cruz. The shoot was for my website and pictures turned out fantastic! Not only that, but she is an all around great person to work with and keeps the vibe upbeat and fun. Not only is she a talented photographer but also an amazing henna artist. I have seen some of her henna art at a couple events here in Santa Cruz which is how I found her originally and wow, I cannot say enough great things about her artistic henna art. I believe she does henna and photography not only in Santa Cruz County but also in the San Francisco Bay area, Sonoma County, Napa areas as well. A true professional. Very happy customer, highly recommended!" - From Jay A.
"Wow, I am really so pleased with the results of my photo shoot with Julia. Not only did the photos come out as fine works of art, but it was really a treat to work with her. She is fun, and relaxing and I respect her for her integrity and eye for quality. She is also an incredible artist and designed a henna inspired tattoo for me. Julia is an all-around professional artist and it feels really good supporting true art." - From Tina S.
"Some of the best photoshoots I've ever seen! I have had the pleasure of working with this woman on several occasions. She has provided me with modeling shots that garnished attention from local Santa Cruz companies and beyond. Her creative eye I feel comes from the amount of time she spends making sure this vision is right. The composition, the editing, and the care she puts into her craft is inspiring. Also her follow up and timing are impeccable... in a world full of flakey people she stands out. Stoked to work with her in the future. Definitely my go to photographer for modeling to event photography." - From Phoenix R.
