FR Review:
Julie Stapen is known for capturing children and families at their most glowing moments. A fan of natural light, Julie's photos flatter adult complexions while also capturing the translucent beauty of children's skin, and she easily switches between color and black & white. Julie understands that sometimes "spontaneous" moments need to be planned or encouraged, and she is well-versed in coaxing a baby into smiling or easing a couple's nerves so that the end result appears natural. A self-declared "hopeless romantic," Julie also photographs weddings and other events, such as Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and fundraisers.

Julie is a trained photojournalist and earned a Masters in Photography at NYU in 2004. Those familiar with her work would not be surprised to learn that her focus while earning her Masters was on parent-child relationships. After earning her advanced degree, Julie photographed for The New York Post and founded her own photography business on the side in 2005. With the birth of her son in 2008, she left the newspaper business to focus on Julie Stapen Photography full time.

Julie's fees vary by event but are, by and large, reasonable for the quality and pre- and post-production work involved. Family shoots start at $550 and typically take place over the course of two hours in the sitters' home or outdoors. Weddings packages are a minimum of eight hours and start at $3,000, with many add-ons allowing clients to customize packages. For most other events, her rates typically start at $325 per hour. Julie Stapen Photography is good choice for reportage family shots and for events requiring a dependable, upbeat photographer dedicated to capturing essence of the event at hand.
