About Me

Hey there! My name is Julia, the owner and founder of Golden Rose Collective, based in Bangor Maine! I'm so happy you're here. Previously Shots by Julia, I started this business as a sophomore in high school. But even before that, I was obsessed with taking pictures. I would bring my little pink Kodak digital camera EVERYWHERE with me, on family vacations, day trips, and even to the grocery store. I would always try and find something interesting to photograph.

When I'm not taking photos, I love watching movies, going out to eat (HUGE sushi connoisseur), trips to the beach, spending time with my mom, sister, and friends, and playing with my cats. I also have a degree in psychology, and love to use the skills I've been taught to make genuine connections with people I met . In other words, I love making new friends!!!

Enough about me, let's hear about YOU! I would love to be able to capture all your amazing life moments, and become not just your photographer, but a friend to you. I can't wait to work together, we're gonna have so much fun!
