“One woman filled with self love and self acceptance is a model more
super than any cover girl.” – Amy Leigh Mercree
I’m Julie and my ultimate intention is to not only produce beautiful images for you, but to transform the way you view yourself. I’ve been creating portraits for women and specialize in boudoir portraiture since 2012 in Washington DC and Northern Virginia. That means my attention is focused into lighting, posing, stylizing for all body types, and creating a luxury boudoir experience for you.
I get it, we’re all busy with the hustle and bustle of living our ambitious lives, taking care of everyone else but ourselves and force-fed this over photoshopped idea of beauty living in a constant state of comparison – it’s all a recipe for getting out of touch with ourselves. I believe it is my purpose to restore that confidence and empower you to feel amazing and beautiful. Whether you believe it or not, sexy is in you and it is my job to bring that sexy out.
A boudoir session with me allows you to take some time out for yourself, reconnect and love who you are at this very moment. Now is the perfect time for your boudoir session, not when you loose that baby weight, not when you get a tan and not in a couple months or next year. Celebrate this time as you are right now and allow yourself to be who you really are. I mean what girl doesn’t love to get fancy and put on a sexy pair of heels?!
So who am I when I’m not behind the camera? I’d like to think I’m a pretty simple girl with an insane makeup collection an obsession with Netflix and Lifetime TV marathons. Yes, Lifetime, I get sappy sometimes too.
In my off times, I’m in leggings, over-sized t-shirts, flip flops with an expected layer of dog fur after periods of intense puppy cuddling. My fashion magazine collection is out of control and I don’t intend to quit anytime soon. I’m always looking forward to the next beach road trip with my dude and 2 rescue pups. And if I had to choose between lipstick or mascara, mascara wins.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, my last name is pronounced soccer, like the game. I bet you were pronouncing it “So-sher” and it’s cool, everybody else does too and most times I just go with it. But when I’m feeling fancy I like to pronounce it “So-shay.”
