Julie Hughes is an amazing photographer! The best I have ever worked with. She has taken senior photos for three of my children and they were all beautiful, artistically creative, and very professional. Just as impressive, was Julie's ability to make my children feel at ease, and relaxed during the shoots. She made each one feel important, and attractive, and genuinely interested in them. I truly believe this added to the beauty of the photos because my children felt so comfortable with her. They all walked away telling me how great she is and how much fun they had. My oldest son is autistic and generally takes terrible pictures because it causes hom anxiety, and he just loved Julie!! Not to mention she was able to capture his natural smile over and over again (she's a miracle worker!!) as well as capturing his personality (and the personality of my other children) with a great mixture of serious and pensive shots as well as fun, happy, and expressive shots. I will never call anyone else!!

"I have had the privilege to work with Julie for three photography sessions, two newborn/family sessions, and one first birthday session. With every photo session she was so easy to work with and was amazingly patient to get the perfect shots. I even had a specific prop I wanted to incorporate into a photo and she went above and beyond to make it happen. Her enthusiasm for photography really shines through in her work and is contagious when working with her. While doing one newborn session, Julie was so excited about some new props she wanted to use that I couldn't help but get excited too!! The only negative thing I have to say is how hard it is to select which pictures you want from the proofs because most are so incredible! Julie really works hard to capture those shots that make you smile and melt your heart. You won't find a more passionate and caring portrait photographer who produces such quality in Sonoma County!"

"I have had the pleasure of working with Julie of Julie Hughes Photography for over 15 years. From engagement, maternity, newborn, family and more recently modeling photo shoots; Julie has captured so many special moments and images that I will cherish for a lifetime. Not only does she have a talent behind the camera, she also makes it a comfortable and stress-free experience... which can sometimes be difficult with young children. She has an extremely creative eye and is constantly thinking of interesting and fun ways to make the best of each session. Julie has made each one of my sessions special and unique. I can't say enough about Julie: her professionalism, kindness, and most importantly her passion for giving her clients exactly what they want is top notch!"

"I contracted with Julie to do headshots of 29 individuals on two separate dates at two very different locations. She was always on time, provided wardrobe suggestions to pass on, set up quickly and quietly, was very professional and remained in communication with me during the entire process. A large selection of shots to choose from were quickly provided to us and the end results were provided just as fast. everyone involved loves their photos! I would not hesitate to recommend Julie for personal portraits or business photos in the future."

"Julie has been taking individual and class photos at my preschool for over ten years now. She is amazing! She has an excellent report with the kids/teachers/parents and always captures each child's personality with great ease, Julie comes early and is always prepared for the day. Her black and white portraits are priceless treasures that families cherish for a lifetime. I can honestly say that Julie is the best photographer we have ever worked with at the Applebee Preschool!"
