Julia Vaughan

I'm an East Coast transplant from Vermont to the San Francisco Bay Area, where I live with my husband and slightly spoiled rescue dog. Since my first 35mm camera in high school, I have loved capturing, revisiting and sharing special moments. A trip to New Zealand with my first DSLR camera kindled a deeper interest in photography that has become a passion. I love creating images that capture the essence of special places and moments, especially moments in nature. When I am witnessing a glorious sunset, or the magic of the vast night sky, or a bee diving into a pollen-covered flower, I feel more alive than at any other time! This in-the-moment mindfulness centers me amid the hectic pace of life. In sharing the images I create from those moments, I hope to bring some of that joy, wonder and peace to those viewing my photographs. I am happy to produce print orders for anyone who would like a fine art nature image from our amazing planet on their wall. I also enjoy teaching others who are newer to photography how to master their cameras and post-processing techniques.
