Spring Portraits in Woodbridge, Virginia

Well hello there! It's been awhile!!!  And WOW has this winter ever dragged on.  I actually enjoy winter, mainly because i love snow but we've been short on snow and big on cold! Here we are in April and i realize i haven't blogged since December.  So...let's catch up, shall we? The first quarter of 2018 has mostly been devoted to commercial photography with some outdoor portrait sessions sprinkled in the mix when weather permitted. We even had a Christening and a big event for a publisher to round things out!  Right now it's still pretty chilly but we did manage to have a day just before the cherry blossoms really popped, which provided a really pretty backdrop for this high school senior.  Enjoy!  And thanks for stopping by.  As always, you can book your very own session by contacting the studio today.  We look forward to working with you!

Newborn Photography: Christmas Blessings

Had the great pleasure of photographing this beautiful family as they welcomed a newborn son to the world.  He's just eleven days young!!!  Also want to take a moment to thank everyone for all the support this last year. 
The studio will be on limited hours between now and January 3rd.  We have very limited openings, mostly reserved for Boutique Petite sessions and newborns, so contact the studio as soon as possible to see what's still available.
It's been a great 2017 and we're looking forward to welcoming 2018!

High school seniors are so much fun to photograph! As the weather gets cooler, i've been scheduling as many seniors as possible to get that last bit of Autumn color!  If you weren't able to get on the schedule this month, no worries, the studio has many lovely backdrops of all kinds/styles...and it's warm =)  We look forward to working with you soon!

What to Wear for a Photo Session!

One of the most frequently asked questions i receive is 'what should I wear?' I thought a few examples might be helpful for those planning to book their sessions in the coming days. Basic rule of thumb is to mix patterns, textures and solids that incorporate similar colors, without being all 'matchy-matchy'. Here are some ideas! Fall portrait sessions are booking now!

The navy blue compliments this sweet boy very well, and is a nice contrast to the pattern and texture of his shorts.

With a beautiful, large family, it can be a challenge to figure out what everyone should wear! This family pulled it off perfectly with a great mix of patterns and solids that pull together wonderfully!

 I love that this couple mixed up the red, white, and blue with various patterns in the shirt, flag scarf and bright red solid. It came together perfectly!

Love the vibrant pattern and classic look this couple put together. Perfect!

Winter Portraits

The old year has passed, and the studio is already buzzing in early 2017!  Since i continue to be a bad sporadic blogger, i will be sharing some sessions that i've never gotten around to posting, in addition to my latest work.
The 'birthday' session below was one of the last ones of 2016.  It's a family i've had the joy to photograph several times over the last few years.  Enjoy!

Fall Portraits

Fall portraits have been in full swing all over the DMV!  I traveled to Maryland to capture this beautiful family, as they celebrated the 1st birthday of their youngest child.  The weather and the foliage were perfect!
If you or someone you love would like to book a session, now is the perfect time to pick up a gift card.  Gift cards can be used to purchase an entire session, or can be put toward prints.  Visit the website for more details. Occoquan Photographer, Lisa Julia Photography
Until next time...

Occoquan Family Photographer

It's a huge understatement to say that this year has FLOWN by, and staying true to myself, i realize i have been the worst blogger ever!!!  I suppose it's *GREAT* that we've been busy with a huge variety of photo shoots, and hopefully in the coming days i will share what we've been up to over the last number of months!!  Today i am sharing a lovely Grandma and her adorable grandsons. Occoquan recently had the Grand Opening of the new Park, so we were able to take advantage of the new LOVE sign!  Enjoy the photos and enjoy the rest of the summer!  Tomorrow we leave for Minnesota to photograph a wedding over the weekend.  Stay tuned, and thank you again for all the support over these last many years!!!

Newborn Photography: Occoquan Virginia Portrait Studio

Hope everyone is settling in nicely to 2016!  The studio is already buzzing lately, especially with beautiful newborn babies. A newborn portrait session captures a special time in the life of your child; the babies change so quickly from day to day!  If you are expecting, we have several session options. You can schedule maternity portraits, as well as your newborn and first year portraits to ensure you don't miss these important milestones. And without further adieu, enjoy this little newborn girl who was a recent studio guest.  She's just 13 days young and absolutely precious!
