Julie Harmsen Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to the blog. We're Julie and Andy. Here you will find our latest photographs and musings. We are a curious duo, intrigued by the uniqueness of life stories and how everyone is somehow connected. We are inspired by people who are confident, sometimes considered quirky, passionate and in love. Our time is split between Seattle and Hawaii and we'd love to hear about your upcoming wedding or celebration.

Wylie Gene…

Andy and I are proud to introduce Wylie Gene, who we welcomed into the world on Monday, October 20th. We’re completely in love and I’m pining for a way to bottle up his sweet baby smell. Our little bug loves listening to his papa sing to him, napping and cuddles so far. Here are a few pics I managed to capture throughout the week.

Zoe, mom + dad // Seattle family photographer

Isn’t this little pig tailed lady adorable? She has such fun, exuberant expressions and we enjoyed playing around at Carkeek Park. Zoe absolutely loves playgrounds and swimming with fishies, which we didn’t get to do at this session. Here are a few charming frames.


An Emerald Dress in the emerald city // Seattle wedding photographer

Gotta love a woman who wears an emerald dress at her wedding.

Seattle kids studio photos with Calder + Claire


These two kiddos joined me in the studio for some silly games and a jams to Aphex Twin yesterday. There’s something amazing about capturing a kid’s personality in a clean space with just a few of their favorite toys. It leaves much more room for the authentic nature of them, which kids are always willing to share. It’s one of the reasons I adore photographing children-there’s no facade, just their pure, untarnished emotions. As the Seattle season grows colder I’m offering in studio sessions like these for kids, and shoot me an e-mail at julie@julieharmsenphotography.com if you’d like to set up one for your little one.
