These are amazing shots… so much better than I was anticipating! You did an awesome job, making it difficult for me to choose! But that’s a good problem to have.

Such a talent, yet so humble and kind, Jules puts you instantly at ease with her caring and calm nature. I'd worried about feeling awkward or silly posing for photos but time flew and the candid and elegant pictures that resulted are so genuine and interesting I am delighted with the outcome!! Jules certainly notices things in a special way, whether textures, colors or details other miss! It makes for the most remarkable shots that will pleasantly surprise you without fail every time! She cares deeply about everything she does and everyone she meets!

Jules did a photoshoot for me for my brand. I chose her because she has a fantastic eye and knows how to get the most flattering shot! She makes everyone feel at ease and is super easy to work with!

Jules is AMAZING!!! WE loved the headshots she did for us and our team. Not only does she get the perfect shot but she made all of us super comfortable and we all really enjoyed the process. Jules also did a great job taking pictures of our event. We can't recommend her enough!

Jules was able to capture a range of dynamic, compelling professional headshots for my consulting business. I've since been asked, "Wow, who did your photography?" and have happily referred them to Jules. It really made a difference on my site, in proposals and for digital avatars.

Jules Holdsworth has a unique eye and a gift for capturing light and shadow on digital photographic equipment. My artwork is by nature, difficult to capture 'on film' and she has done more with her cell phone than other pros have done with big expensive equipment. I use her exclusively now to image my metal art and it's the best money I spend. My portfolio is my living, and Jules has almost singlehandedly made it stunning. Additionally, she is a social media genius with an incredibly diverse package of tech skills. I welcome calls on her behalf, she's really that good.

Jules is a fantastic photographer, designer, and creative person. When asked to help with taking personal photos she surpassed expectations and I highly recommend her as a person and artist.

It's refreshing to bring on a new client and find that your direct connection to the project is someone like Julie. Great designer, flexible, open to new ideas and always working to make the product better.

Julie pours her heart into her designs and it shows in the final products! She's very receptive to ideas and hints that will improve the results of the printed product — she's extremely knowledgeable yet always willing to listen and learn more. She has taught us a thing or two as well! Thank you, Julie, for unlocking the renaming secret of Adobe Bridge!

Julie was an exceptional employee at the Northumberland Echo. Her expertise and dedication were crucial to the success of that newspaper. Her skills with Adobe and eye for design were extraordinary.

Julie is a very talented artist and photographer. She always seems to catch the unexpected. Over the years since I attended college with her, I've continued to be impressed with her growing knowledge of graphic layouts and ability to organize complex electronic and print projects. She has made many suggestions for my own business logos and website design.

Julie was a great colleague and mentor to me at my first graphic design gig; a magazine publication designer. She went out of her way to 'show me the ropes,' and I learned from her daily example of being efficient, thorough, and deadline oriented.

Julie is an excellent graphic designer with an eye to detail. She was prompt in designing my newspaper layouts during her employment at International Medical News Group, and readily responded to any changes I requested or challenges I presented her. She also designed innovative graphics. Julie was a pleasure to work with, and I enthusiastically recommend her.

Julie is awesome! She is a wonderfully creative designer and pays close attention to detail. Julie is deadline driven and design focused, with a witty edge to all of her work. Her interpersonal skills are excellent and she was a pleasure to work with at Education Week.
