Hi! I'm Hope!

I am just in love with in-home portrait sessions, and for Julia & Luke’s life these images will provide even more joyful memories to look back on.

Their home, in Mount Airy, NC, in these images is their very first home, & one that they built! Pretty awesome right? It’s such a cute little house, and something to be very proud of & show off! Plus, it’s the place where Julia works at.

She is a social media manager & podcaster. (Jules & Jo Podcast). Her husband Luke works for a remodeling company, and is a podcast editor. Even though it’s a tiny home, they still are able to seperate work life from home life. That’s so important! (As someone who works from home myself, I totally get it!)

As for their in-home session, we wanted to showcase this joyful time in their lives.

 They will soon be welcoming a little one into the world, they both have amazing jobs, support & love from friends & family; there is just so much to be thankful for in this season of their lives.

I’m really excited for them, and this season! 🙂

Side Note: This entire shoot was inspired by this song right here. Cody Fry is amazing at telling stories through his songs, and I felt like it suited the in-home session.

I thought it was so sweet that Luke does this during their routine at home. He comes up behind her while she’s washing dishes like that all the time.
I loved the photo wall idea! It’s so simple, but so sweet!
