Hi, I'm Julie Gockman!

I've been doing photography for a little while now and can I just say I absolutely love capturing those magical moments in every stage of a person's life. From lovers becoming spouses to first-time parents welcoming a new child into the family. There is nothing better than capturing the chemisty and love between newlyweds or the joy on a parent's face as they gaze at their newborn baby. The laughter from a one-year old digging in to their birthday cake or the sweet tenderness between siblings.

Time flies in the blink of an eye and I know it. I am married to a wonderful man, Matt, we have three beautiful blond boys, and one very lazy pup (though we love her). My boys are now 10, 7, and 4 (in March). It is unbelievable how fast they are growing. I know how important it is to get those memories while you still can.
