Julia Karls | Senior | Lodi High School | A late-summer session at UW-Arboretum

Introducing: Julia!

Today’s session is particularly special to me and I am excited to introduce the lovely Julia to you!! My first memories of Julia begin waaay back when she arrived, suitcase in hand, for a week at Camp Gray Catholic Camp.  As her counselor, I’ll never forget just how joyful she was and how genuinely that she loved being at Camp for the week.  

We stayed in touch over the years and as cliche as it sounds, I seriously can’t believe that she’s a senior!! From serving her community + home parish to blowing me away as Belle in Lodi’s production of Beauty in the Beast, I am constantly amazed at the bright, shining light that Julia is. 

Her session was just as full of light and laughs and somehow, we managed to have the entire UW Arboretum to ourselves! I loved the little pockets of sunshine that we found and Julia was absolutely a natural behind the camera.  

Following graduation, Julia plans to begin a career in music education and I have no doubt that she will inspire the next generation of kiddos with the same passion and genuine joy that I’ve seen from her over the years.  

Enjoy a few of my favorites from her session and have and AMAZING senior year Julia!!
