About julie irene Photography

Your family is ever changing, from a brand new baby, to their first steps, to their first day of school. You know that they'll grow in a blink of an eye and you want to capture and savor every moment and detail. It may be their tiny little toes to their sweet little scowls for your newborn; for your 7 month old, it's their chubby thighs and their ever present smiles.


I am here for you. As a mom of three, I know how quickly time goes by and how quickly your child will grow. I absolutely love posing little newborns to
capture every special feature, to their lips to their sweet furry ears, or your
baby's sweet smiles and their chunky thighs.


I am a small town girl that grew up in Northeast Ohio. I love being a mother to two beautiful daughters and one amazing energetic boy. These children
are my world. I started my photography business in 2008 after getting out of
the corporate world and I couldn't be happier about that decision. I have a
great portrait studio located in Southern California in the amazing beach town of San Clemente. It is full maternity dresses, fine art outfits, and loads of props for newborns and babies!


My favorite part of being a photographer is meeting so many different people and creating priceless portraits for them and their family.

xo, Julie Irene
