Who I Am
Hi! I’m Julia Valdesalice (VAL-deh-SAL-iss), wife to my true soul mate and mother to two amazing daughters who have inspired me to dive into the world of family and newborn photography.
I grew up just outside of Philadelphia and have always had a love for the arts. Fashion, makeup artistry, hair styling, clothing design and sewing are all things I’ve dabbled in and still really enjoy. In fact, I still sew and run a company called Pooks & Lulu which supplies other newborn photographers with outfits for their own sessions.
I graduated from Penn State University where I majored in both Art and Marketing. My passion for photography began with my first born – a blue eyed baby girl born to two brown eyed parents. I was obsessed with taking her picture and knew I needed a “fancy” camera. Countless hours of research, practice and more practice, I finally decided to take a workshop. Since then I have been learning and growing, taking risks, learning some more, taking more workshops and giving this photography thing everything I have.
Why Choose Me
Well, I hope that my work speaks for itself, but in the event that it doesn’t, I will give it a go with words…..
I have passion. I want your session to be unique and special. I, too, am a mom and a wife and I know how important these photos are to you. Knowing that professional photography is an investment, I will help you before, during and after our session to ensure you are happy and excited about these images. Aside from actually taking the pictures, another passion of mine is styling the session. I am available to help choose outfits, locations, and props to fulfill your vision and mine.
My style is very relaxed as I like families and children to feel comfortable so we can make a connection. That way I can capture the most natural expressions and genuine emotion. I love snapping away while they make their silly faces, their sweet smiles, and their most serious pouts. It’s important that you are comfortable and relaxed so you and your family will interact naturally. I want you to snuggle your spouse, tickle your children, and feel the love!
While it is a digital world, I am not necessarily a digital girl. 😉 You want the digital files, I totally get that and that’s why I offer them. Still, it is important to me that you also get some of these professional photographs up on your walls! I will show you some awesome products, wall collages, etc and give you advice on sizing for your space.
The studio is located in Wayne, PA (minutes from King Of Prussia and close to many major highways such as 202, 76, and 476). This is where all newborn, maternity and first birthday sessions are held.
