HALLOWEEN SHOOT *2011*

We'll be having our Annual Halloween Shoot on:

Saturday, October 29, 2011, 9-11:30 am and again on Halloween Day, Monday, October 31, 9:00-11:30 am and 3:00-5:00 pm.

A roll of film gets you fabulous photos of your ghosts, gobblins and super heros and your proofs! From your proofs, get black-and-white or black-and-white, hand-painted photographs that are about the cutest things ever to collect over the years! I put my own boys  through it every year and love,love, love, to look at the photos year after year!

Julia's Photo's up at Cafe Trio - Stop on by!

 Julia's exhibit "Summer Fun" will be up at Cafe Trio through October 15.  Just as the title suggests, the show is full of fun summer inspired images that include photographs from the beach and the Missouri State Fair.  Cafe Trio is located just off the plaza on Main Street.  For more info check out their website at: www.cafetriokc.com 

Faces on Film

I've started a new photo project: "Faces on Film."

I came up with the concept because I love portraits of all kinds of people.

I'll be traveling to different locations in and around town. I will set up my white backdrop and take a portrait of anyone who wants to stop and stand in front of it. The pictures will be taken with my Hasselblad. I'll shoot with film and i'll process and print the portraits like I always do.

FATHER'S DAY!

What do you get for the Dad, or as we call him in our house, the Pop, who has everything? Or, the Pop who doesn't want anything? Pictures!!!!!

I've never heard of the Father that is bummed out because all he got for Father's Day was a portrait of his kids! Better yet, a picture of his kids and his wife.

Photo Shoot with Addie Rose Boutique!

 How cute are these girls?!! 

Julia's Photography on Display at Latte Land! (135th and Metcalf)

Go check out Julia's photographs now on display at the Latte Land at 135th and Metcalf!  

These bright, warm, scenes will surely get you in the mood for summer!  Take a seat in a comfy chair, sip on their delicious coffee, and take in the art.

Get ready! Mother's Day comes early this year!

It's that time of year again-- the time that sons and daughters of all ages start thinking "What in the world am I going to get my mom this year for Mother's Day!?"  Since we are constantly in search of the perfect gift, the one that will crown us "Adored Child of the Year", the present that receives the coveted tears of joy reaction, why not bring your mom in to the studio for a special photo shoot? Just her and her precious children.

HONOR YOUR MOTHER! (Mother's Day is May 8th!)

I started having a special Mother's Day Shoot a few years ago and I have to say that it is most definitely one of my favorites! I am all about the "Generational Portraits." The older I get, the more important family pictures become to me. The snapshots are great, but it's the timeless black-and-white pictures I want to frame and spread all over my house.

Old Photographs

We're having a workshop on Thursday, April 14 from 11-2 at the studio -- How to turn your old family photos into ART.

It always felt like a natural fit for me to take old photographs, take a photo of them, print them in Black-and-white and to hand-paint them.

Several people look at my portraits and comment that it looks like the technique used back in the "old days."

Well, it is! When I paint on photographs, I use an oil paint that has to dry. Before color film, this is the way color was added to a photograph.

THE TRACKS!

Most weekends when we ask our boys what they want to do they say, "go to the tracks!"

Like many little boys, our son Jed has had a fascination with trains since he first started collecting "Thomas the Train" cars. He quickly became an addict when the Toys-R-Us near Bannister Mall went out of business and they were selling everything Thomas for 70% off. My husband Tom was also addicted--he bought everything there was to buy. I will say, it did make potty training easy. On a good day, Jed was getting as many as three trains.
