Your family is amazing!
(That’s what we think at least)
Professional, studio portraiture celebrates you and the legacy that you are making. Images of you in your home will bring to life the love you share and the adventures you have together. And when you walk by it everyday, you’ll get an overwhelming feeling of joy, love, giggles and nostalgic purpose flowing through your veins. And our goal is to make those images be more and more valuable to you every year that passes.
And when professional imagery is printed and designed to coordinate with your home and its decor, all of sudden YOU are your art. An investment so worth it, you’ll wonder how you could have ever lived without it. Especially when your little ones grow, change and discover before your eyes. Remembering those looks, grins, smirks, and oh-so-them growth stages will seem like you want to keep a vise-like grip on the past. They grow too dang fast!
Sessions with principle artist/photographer at Jewel Images, Julia Kelleher, M.Photog., M.Artist., Cr., CPP, are relaxed, low-key, a blast for the kids and efficient for dad. It’s a play-date and there is nothing more Julia loves than a slightly “naughty” child who lets their true personality come through to her, capturing it with a clean, professional style that radiates YOUR child.
Julia is a designated Master Photographic Craftsman and Master Artist by Professional Photographers of America and professionally certified through the organization–an honor less than 8-percent of photographers in the United States hold. She is a multi-international award winner and a 2015 International Diamond Photographer of the Year. She is an active member of both PP of Oregon and PP of Washington affiliate associations, having served as board Vice President for Oregon, and she continues to donate her time and talent to charity. Causes close to her heart include supporting children and families though Central Oregon’s Family Access Network, and premature baby health through the St Charles Medical Center NICU.
Julia’s experience as an award-winning, television journalist gives her a one-of-a-kind perspective with her art, and the ability to see her subjects in a unique light. Her work is featured across Oregon and she is routinely commissioned for her creative expertise Internationally and across the West Coast. The birth of her son in July of 2011 helped her truly see how beautiful a new life is, what a gift motherhood is, and how precious the fleeting moments of childhood are. Julia is an renowned educator, teaching students about professional portraiture, sales, marketing and business strategy across the globe. Her students follow her teachings worldwide through major international platforms like Creative Live, Imaging USA and WPPI.Julia Kelleher, M. Photog., M. Artist., Cr., CPP, FP-O, FP-W
