We feel so lucky to have found Julia -- she is incredibly talented and makes doing the photo shoots fun for our whole family. We love that we have such beautiful images documenting our pregnancy and the first few years of our daughter's life. Julia has the ability to capture both the spontaneous joyful movements of a busy toddler and the intimate moments between a pregnant woman and her partner. She's a true gem, and her love of her work really shines through.
Julia has photographed our most precious family moments - engagement, wedding, births, family photos, over the past 10 years- we are extremely pleased with her work. As a matter of fact, this year our holiday card, photographed and designed by Julia, was voted BEST received by many of our friends and family. I feel very comfortable recommending her and she is very pleasant to work with.

I’m addicted to Julia Lehman Photography!!!! Julia gets it right everytime!! She makes me and my family feel so comfortable. I don’t worry about a thing. Julia goes above and beyond. She has captured countless precious moments throughout the years as she has watched us grow and change. I am ever thankful and truly lucky to have found her.
Julia is a fantastic photographer who melds a unique artistic touch with a story-teller's eye. Her work provided Philadelphia City Paper readers with photographs that were not only superior in technical quality, but captured the essence of the moment at hand.
Julia is one of those rare photographers where you don't need to read the cutline to know the picture is hers. She has great visual judgment and is a terrific colleague and collaborator and her work continues to be cutting-edge and stunning.
"I recommend her in the highest terms possible.

I just wanted to tell you again how much I enjoyed our shoot… Not only was it so nice to see you and catch up on these last couple of years and our families, but you really made me feel like a supermodel!! The proofs arrived… and I LOVE them! You are so wonderful at what you do!! You made this experience so special for me and I am absolutely delighted.
As a former TV/video personality, I have worked with numerous photographers over the years. After working with Julia from Julia Lehman Photography, I have become a loyal client for all of my photography needs from family portraits to business/marketing shoots. Julia is an amazingly creative and versatile talent. She has a unique way of making a personal connection with her clients that infuses all of her work.
I first met Julia in a pre-natal yoga class and learned that she was a photographer. I loved Julia's warm, nurturing and creative energy and always felt comfortable with her, I asked her to photograph my newborn daughter. Julia came to my house and took the most amazing photographs of my baby as well as my husband and I. I was completely blown away by her use of natural light in our own home and her eye for composition and her patience throughout the shoot as I had to take breaks to nurse the baby. I can't tell you how many people complimented me on those photos, and ever since then Julia has been my exclusive photographer!
From pregnancy photos, family portraits and event coverage to all of my business and marketing photo needs including head shots and artistic pole dancing shoots, Julia does it all, and she does it well! Julia is extremely professional and has extensive experience in many different genres of photography but she also has a very welcoming personality which allows her clients to relax during the shoot so she is able to truly capture the best of her clients. I always trust that Julia will find the best light, the most flattering poses and I completely trust her creative instincts and ideas. By browsing through her portfolio you can see what a talented artist she is. Once you work with her, you will be hooked like me!

Working with Julia was amazing. With two very active boys, it is often difficult to keep them still for very long. Julia immediately understood this and was able to capture the essence of my family quickly and efficiently. The end result were some amazing shots of my family. I look forward to working with her again.
I have to share that my family and I just had the best family photo experience ever. Julia Lehman McTigue took our pictures and within the first minute had all of us, including my toddler at ease and being our natural selves. Julia's relaxed and flexible ability to connect with each one of us was incredible. And with her expertise at the camera the fun and togetherness really shines through the pictures we received. We will be using her every year to document our growing family.

Julia is 'my photographer.' That's what I call her because in all my years on this planet she is the one who somehow really does capture my soul when she 'takes my picture.' And it's not just me...I've seen her work throughout her career, capturing essence is what she does. Her ability to do so rivals that of Diane Arbus, and though I imagine her blushing at that statement, it's no more than the truth.
—Victoria Pendragon, Creative Spirit & Soul Doctor
Being photographed by Julia was an incredible experience. Her easy going personality, genuine love for her work and sense of adventure made for the most personal and unique family portraits. Similarly, her professional head shots are a standout among a sea of blue and khaki. I highly recommend Julia.
