Julia Shelepova - Bay Area family photographer.


I am a portrait photographer, wife and a mom of two. As a family photographer, I love capturing and saving the memories of my client‘s most wonderful milestones: pregnancy, baby milestones and annual family portraits! Learn More...

Kind words

"I can't wait for the next time we need to get family photos taken..."

"Julia was fantastic!
Before we had our daughter, the last thing in my mind was to schedule newborn photos. One night while feeding, I thought to myself I would regret it if I didn't get this moment documented professionally. I instantly reached out to Julia, and she got us in 3 days later! She sent over lots of information on what works best, what outfit looks great, and how to handle your newborn that morning to ensure the shoot goes smoothly! Day of, she was professional, punctual, and flexible with our questions, as well as our attention-seeking dog!
I can't wait for the next time we need to get family photos taken because Julia was such a pleasure to work with!"

"Our photo shoot was so relaxing and enjoyable, even with a five-month-old!"

We cannot have more positive things to say regarding our family portrait session with Julia. She is incredibly professional and a pleasure to work with. She has a calming and positive energy that made our photo shoot so relaxing and enjoyable, even with a five-month-old! :) The pictures turned out to be stunning! We are so grateful to her for capturing these early days as a family. We can't wait to have another session with her, once our baby is a little older.

"The photos print even better than they look on the computer!"

"At nearly eight months pregnant with two other kiddos in tow, my husband and I are so glad we took maternity/family photos with Julia! I was nervous about the process of being so pregnant and with two other small children, yet Julia was amazing - from start to finish. She is so responsive and helpful in answering questions prior to the session, generous with her beautiful clothing options in her client wardrobe (trust me, Mamas, she has you covered!) and flexible with our location choice. The session itself was so easy and enjoyable for everyone - truly, everyone had a great time (even given it was a hot day!). The turnaround time for the photos was quick, and they came out beautifully - so many to choose from, and they print even better than they look on the computer!!! We highly recommend entrusting Julia with your next special session."

" The pictures came out amazing - I still get compliments to this day!"

"Julia recently did our maternity and newborn photoshoot, and I was blown away. Both sets of pictures came out AMAZING and better than I could have imagined - I still get complements to this day! Everything from Julia's style choice, background choice, lightening, pose recommendations was on point. I really loved that she had her own wardrobe of dresses that she allowed me to use for my shoots, and they were absolutely perfect! I honestly was on the fence with even doing maternity photos, but after seeing my photos, I'm so happy that I decided to do it and chose Julia as our photographer. I highly recommend Julia for any maternity, newborn, and/or family photos!"

" We look forward to treasuring them forever."

"We were lucky enough to get in on Julia's Fall mini sessions recently and absolutely loved our experience with her! She is warm and friendly, patient (which is so important with a toddler!), and professional. The day of our shoot was windy, our toddler was less than cheerful, and we were a bit stressed; so we were unsure how the photos could be any good-but when we got them back, we were stunned to see how beautiful they are! She somehow captured the most incredible moments and even quite a few of our 2-year-old smiling! Julia helped us feel relaxed and comfortable and invited us to just interact naturally as a family. We feel so grateful that we chose to do these photos and look forward to treasuring them forever. Julia comes highly recommended!"
