Newborn | Maternity | Family Photographer located in the Okanagan. Natural light photography studio located in Lake Country. I was an electrician and now I'm a photographer, that's what I love about life ... you can just wake up one day and literally change everything.

After many years working in the trade, I decided it was time to do something I was much more passionate about. This decision lead me back to school to become a photographer. I recently graduated from the digital photography program in Kelowna BC. I am well travelled, love life, am always up for an adventure and love trying new things. When it comes to photography I am proudly a generalist, this ke

Happy New Year!

If you have seen me or had a session with me this past year you would have known that we were anxiously awaiting the arrival of our third baby.

This pregnancy was by far my most difficult and after my first two pregnancies we didn’t think it would even possible to be more difficult so we decided to not say anything and just let it be until the baby arrived.

Well she’s here! Happy and healthy. With a tremendous amount of help and support from Grandma and Nana we completed our family just in time to spend Christmas together as a family of five!

Pinch me 🥰 Welcome sweet little Nora, you fit in perfectly 😍

Wishing you all the best 2022 possible!

It’s been a full year since the shell of the studio was completed. It’s been a lot of work this year styling, collecting client closet items and all the finishing touches but it’s work that brings me so much joy and happiness.

Being a families first outing together always seems extra special. This little sweetheart had an extra family member at her newborn session, a furry one ☺️

This is my last session of the year - if you know why you know and if you don’t maybe I’ll share with you soon, something else we have been up to this year ☺️

I asked Natalie to help me say something about this photo.

Here are thoughts of a three year old. I love the photo and I love you and you love me, he loves the baby 😭

I think her thoughts are pretty accurate ☺️

How was your weekend?? Did you do something fun? Try something new?

My mom is here so the girls and I have been loving that. We did some Christmas shopping which mostly meant spoiling the girls, I don’t recommend taking your kids shopping with you lol I now live with two little dinosaurs, so cute how new pair of jammies can make their imaginations run wild.

Hours and hours are spent finding the perfect items for the client closet. I never really know if I’ve made the right choice until I get to photograph a beautiful bump in it. I’m head over heals for this combo … what do you think about it ?

There is always beauty in simplicity. A families unique story and connection is so beautiful just on its own and it’s always something I look forward to capturing ✨

Last years Halloween costumes - too cute not to share again 🎃

This years costumes are designed around a three year olds choice at the Halloween store, she chose her costume and then I had to get creative for the rest of us … so lol going to be good 😂😅

I think I might make witch photos with the girls an annual thing. I left it to the last minute but maybe tomorrow if I have the energy and they are into it we can take some photos together.

What do you think? Good idea? When it comes to photos do you have any Halloween traditions?

I freaking LOVE fall! Add an adorable mother and son and it just gets even prettier 🤩

It’s such a short and sweet season, my favourite parts are the colours, crunchy leaves and switching from iced coffees back to hot coffees.

What are your favourite parts of fall?

Too cold out for your maternity session?

Family sessions can easily be planned for spring and fall but maternity sessions are needed year round. That sweet spot for maternity photos, 32-34 weeks is slightly tougher to plan around ideal outdoor weather photo shoot seasons hehe.

When I was pregnant with my second I wanted my photos done in January and with an almost 2 year old that was not happening outdoors. We did find an indoor location and got some beautiful photos but I would have much preferred an intimate studio setting.

A year later my space was created. Perfect for when the weather is not ideal and there are lots of beautiful dresses to choose from, all you have to do is show up!

Please visit www.juliedorge.com for more information and I can’t wait to welcome you to the studio!

Hello hello, happy Monday!

I have been kind of quite on here the past couple weeks. I have been working tirelessly on the finishing touches to the studio. Mostly that means hours of searching for the perfect things and I’m happy to say - it’s coming along sooooo beautifully!

I added another set area which I am really excited about, it uses the full length window :)

Waiting for stuff to come in the mail takes foooorever these days, it’s a first world problem for sure but I’m just so excited for it to be 100% the way I imagined it would be when I welcomed families.

As soon as it’s done I will do a reveal! That could be in 2-8 weeks lol depending on when the finishing touches arrive! (Yes there are more dresses lol there are always more dresses in the mail 😅)

Happy Friday! I’m thinking about breaking a personal rule this weekend …

I might break my rule of not starting Halloween things until October this weekend and start working on Halloween costumes because I feel like everything is harder to get and takes longer now.

We like to dress up as a family, what are some good ideas for a family of four with two little girls!? ⬇️
