Julie Uhl Photography bio picture

    I am inspired by the beauty in simple things. I love chubby little baby hands and tiny toes, inside jokes and Eskimo kisses. I want my business and my images to inspire others; to be a reflection of MY joy and love for life, while capturing what's most important to my clients. I want my work to represent quality, not just with the images, but also through the experience. My hope is that people can see my passion for my “job” as I'm able to capture their memories!

If you’re on my mailing list, then you’ve already heard the big news…. Santa is coming!!!

This year, I’m collaborating with my friend, Heather, over at Southern Lucidity, to host Santa once again!

This is a great opportunity for your child to meet the jolly old elf, spend quality time with him, and get custom portraits, all without waiting in long lines at the mall.


Sessions will take place by appointment only, at Southern Lucidity’s storefront in Pfafftown, NC on December 4th.

Appointment times are from 2-6 pm and are scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis.


Your $65 session fee includes:

*5-10 minutes of one-on-one time with Santa

*3 digital images of your choice (additional images and products are available for purchase)

*a special treat to take home

You can reserve your session here:


And I will email your invoice!

As mentioned above, sessions are by appointment only, and your session fee is due at the time of booking to secure your desired time. The session fee is not refundable, but is transferable in the event of a cancellation.


These sessions are something I’ve been looking forward to since last year’s Santa minis and I believe many of you have as well! (I’ve been getting inquiries for them since JUNE!)


I can’t wait to see you there!



This year’s setup will vary slightly from the images seen above. The backdrop for these sessions will again be simple and classic, to allow the children’s interaction with Santa to be the main focus!


One of my all time favorite Christmas movies is Elf! And this scene from the movie, well, this is exactly how I feel right now!

Yep, that’s right! I’ve spoken to the big guy himself, and we’ve checked our schedules to find the perfect time to photograph your little ones with the jolly old elf.

Toddler Talking with Santa

Instead of offering sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I’ve chosen to say “thank you” for supporting my business this year with these special sessions, at a very special rate!

Your $65 session fee would include:

*5-10 minutes of one-on-one time with Santa (No waiting in line!)

*3 digital images of your choice (With the option to purchase additional digitals, prints or ornaments!)

And you’ll have a special treat waiting for you after your session!

Toddler Sitting with Santa

These sessions will take place on the afternoon/evening of Wednesday, December 16th. (If we have enough interest we may be able to open up a weekend date!)

Openings are very limited, so don’t wait! Several folks have already expressed interest in booking their sessions and you know how busy Santa’s schedule is this time of year. We don’t want your little ones to miss out on this amazing opportunity!

This beautiful set was created by my wonderful friend Brooke, of Brooke Moxley Photography. The set for our sessions will be simple, but very beautiful and your child’s interaction with Santa will be the focal point of your images!


It’s November and the magic of the season has already begun!

Imagine having your Christmas cards done, gifts picked out for Grandma and Grandpa and a timeless piece of art featuring your favorite little ones completed all in one day. Sounds awesome, right? I don’t know about you, but November and December tend to be super busy, and I would LOVE to be able to get all of those things done all at once! You can schedule your one hour appointment, where we will capture your cuties in front of a classic backdrop, then sit down together to choose and edit your favorite images, and finally, allow you to choose which gifts and heirloom pieces you’d like to take home.

In case the 90+ degree temperatures weren’t enough of a hint, it’s SUMMER!! And I love, love, love all things summer! (Except the heat. And the sweating. And the sunburns. Err… You get the point. 😉 )

But this summer, I’ve made a huge decision! I’m taking the remainder of June, all of July, and part of August off.


That’s right! I’m taking the summer off to spend time with this cutie and his handsome Daddy. (aka-my hubby!)


I’ll will be taking sessions for folks who are scheduled and paid before June 17th, but after that you’ll have to wait until the fall to schedule a session!

I know this may seem a little crazy to you guys, but I’m super excited about it. This is going to be an awesome, super relaxing time to spend with family and will give me the time to recharge after several crazy, exhausting, and emotional months.

And because I know you guys may miss me during this time, I have an awesome way for you to keep up with what’s going on.

Just head on over to our family YouTube channel, The UHLs and Framily, to keep up with our daily adventures!!

We’ve just started daily vlogs this week so go check ’em out (Day 1Day 2, & Day 3) and be sure to give us a thumbs up, leave us a comment, and subscribe to our channel so that you don’t miss a thing! 😉

See you guys in the fall!!




One of my absolute favorite things to photograph, is the birth of a child; it is such a beautiful, emotional, and humbling experience. I am so thankful that people are willing to allow me to capture this intimate experience and preserve the memories for them.

On Sunday morning, I got a text that Cassie’s water had broken. I was so excited, not just because she’s a good friend, but because after having two boys this was going to be their first girl! I’ve been amazingly blessed to be a part of all three of her deliveries, and the birth of her second child was the first birth I ever photographed. True to her previous pattern of laboring for hours and then progressing very quickly, sweet little Audrie was delivered with one push and donning a head full of beautiful, dark hair.

Ahh! I’m just so in love! I don’t think there is anything in the world sweeter than a precious little newborn. Even my toddler is in love with all of her “wittle” (little) parts. And it’s amazing how quickly they grow and change, so don’t forget to hug and kiss your little ones today. Seems like just yesterday mine was this little…
