Julie Edwards Photographer

About

Just in case you are interested in a little bit of information about who I am…

Portrait of Julie EdwardsI am a mom of three busy young adults, wife to a  wonderful husband, happily working as a photographer since 2002.  Before that, I taught middle school and high school for 15 years. I also work at the San Diego Zoo!  I drive the bus and give tours.

Many of the things I loved about teaching also apply to photography.  I meet a wide variety of very interesting people, and get to know them a little bit. My years of teaching also prepared me to be flexible and to plan ahead.

Photography has always been near and dear to my heart.  My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer, and I remember being in the darkroom with him as a magical time.  We have boxes and boxes of family photos, going back in to the thirties. Through those photos, I have a strong sense of who I am and where I come from.

Over the last couple of years, many important family members have passed on.  Have photographs of them has become an incredible comfort, and a wonderful way to remember their lives and spirits.

When I work with you to create your family portraits, I am very aware that I am creating an important piece of family history.  I take that responsibility very seriously.  I strive to show not only how people look, but the emotion, connections and relationships between people.
