JULES KIRKEBY PHOTOGRAPHY is a full-service portrait studio with the pampering of hair and makeup included in every shoot (with the exception of some 'Limited Sessions'). Yes guys, even you could look better in a portrait with a little powder.
I noticed that my favorite portraits of myself, my Mom and sister were ones taken in a glamour style studio. They were taken 20+ years ago & I'm still happy to display them. The portraits taken when I did my own hair & makeup and wore trendy clothes are hidden away in a file cabinet. I encourage classic, solid, simple and/or vintage outfits & hair so that you will be proud of your heirloom-quality portraits for the rest of your life and happy to pass them on to the next generation.
HERE ARE MY INTENTIONS FOR YOUR PHOTOSHOOT
For you to have a day of pampering & star treatment
That your experience is fun and transformative
You come away feeling empowered and confident with the best portrait you have ever seen of yourself
"No one is born ‘photogenic’ so don’t feel like you need to know or do anything other than relaxing & allow me to guide you. I know how powerful having an awesome portrait of yourself is. And in today's digital world we all need a good image."
BEHIND THE LENS
Hi, I'm Jules - Mother, Wife, Yogi, Doggie Mom. Lover of chocolate and all things Mid-Century modern. For fun I go camping, to estate sales or thrifting for vintage finds, hang out with friends and family and attend meetings and trainings at photography associations. I am an award winning member of Professional Photographers of San Diego County. Originally an Ioweigan (person from the frozen tundra that is Iowa) I have now lived in San Diego longer than I lived in Iowa--which makes me a native in my opinion. :)
