Let me Introduce Myself
Hi there I'm Julia, I'm a small town girl with an old soul. I was born and raised in Cape Breton NS, the home of my heart. I lived in Halifax for a few years while I went to photo school and then a few years following before Cape Breton called me back home.
Fueled by coffee and salty ocean air I'm always up for a road trip or a lazy day at home. I can often be found with friends and family either out exploring local coffee shops and markets or around someone's kitchen table playing board games. When I have downtime I'll spend it watching whatever show I'm currently streaming, reading, or even crocheting.

The Road to Photography
When I graduated from pre-school I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, at the time I copied my sister and said I wanted to be a teacher. That lasted for a little while, until I decided I wanted to be an interior designer, and then I thought I wanted to be a fashion designer (So many notebooks and binders filled with clothing related doodles). It wasn't until my Mom mentioned to me that photography was my only hobby that 'stuck' that I really considered it as a career option. At that point I'd had camera in hand for two-ish years.
After high school I went on to study photography at Centre for Arts and Technology in Halifax. The digital photography program was a two year course done in twelve months, and it was twelve months of awesomeness! I met so many amazing people through C.A.T, and I was presented with so many opportunities to go out and work and put the skills I was learning to the test. At graduation from Centre for Arts I was awarded with the IDEALS award for the photography class as well as my diploma in Digital Photography.
