Fitness Champion - Laquita Carr

I had a ton of fun photographing this real life Super Woman, Laquita Carr, for our fitness portfolios. This inspiring lady just took home 10 trophies after killing it in two fitness competitions! You Rock! Go Laquita Go!

Fitness Champion-Laquita Carr

  I've been inspired by many people in my community especially friends who are fitness trainers and who are inspiring others daily to be the best they can be. Lately, I've been wanting to build up my Fitness photography portfolio and I reached out to my friend, Laquita Carr, (Fitness trainer of AGAME Fitness and recent Champion of two fitness competitions and ten trophies later!), and asked her to model for me. We had an incredible late afternoon evening taking these photos. Here's just a taste of more to come:) She is a Real Life Wonder Woman! Love her! Go Laquita Go!

Professional Headshot-Lisa

I had a really fun time meeting and photographing this pretty lady's professional headshot recently. Here's what she had to say about our time together.

"So it was time to update my professional photos.  I had a routine dental appointment the day prior, and frankly, had less anxiety about that experience than I did about the photo shoot.  I hate having my photo taken and so was not looking forward to it at all, but I really needed the photos for my team's new website and some upcoming speaking engagements.  Wow, did it turn out to be fun.  Julia and I clicked right away and she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.  We chatted, we listened to reggae, she called me "Mama."  In the end, I was/am so happy with the photos.  They are lovely!  Thanks for a fun afternoon Julia."-Lisa


GRIT Skateboards and AGAME Fitness

It was a beautiful afternoon shooting for GRIT Skateboards and AGAME Fitness last weekend.  I designed this poster for this weekend's Garden Festival in Chestnut Hill, PA where GRIT will have a table to sell their awesome apparel and skateboards! (Visit GRIT at the festival on Sunday the 7th in front of 10,000 Villages on Germantown Ave.) I love collaborating and helping each other's business's out. #Phitjawn, #Gritskateboards, #AgameFit, #JLphotolove13, 

Beautiful Mama Erica

Thinking of this beautiful mama and dear friend, who has also been a client for almost 10 years, and is awaiting the arrival for her newest addition and 3rd child. Here's a photo of a fun shoot we did to capture belly  #3! I have been seeing images of milk baths floating around and thought it was pretty cool and since we couldn't shoot in the pool, we thought this was a fun substitute!


The McKenna Family

Recently I got the call to photograph one of my favorite families for their annual McKenna Family Valentine shoot! We had a lightly rainy day but that didn't stop us from having fun taking photos!
I'm so lucky.....

Here's what Mom Michele had to say about our photo shoot:
"If anyone in the Philly area needs a photographer I can not recommend Julia Lehman McTigue enough! She gets gorgeous shots of my crazy crew every year and she is a delight to work with. Incredible talent and a wonderful person."

Soul Scapes Fitness and Yoga -Megan Ward

      Nothing like starting off 2017 with a really fun, edgy, unique photo shoot with a wonderful lady and owner of New Jersey based, Soul Scapes Yoga and Fitness, Megan Ward. Megan came to me knowing that we could create daring, empowering and beautiful imagery for her website and promotional materials. Being like minded with health, wellness and thinking outside of the box, we really enjoyed capturing these images together. Thank you Megan for the Awesome time and I look forward to our underwater shoot in May! #soulscapesfitness, #femininepower, #goddess
