Hi, there! I'm Julie...a native Texan, dog mom, mac and cheese snob, candy hog, mountain lover, and "glamper" for life.

I'm so glad you're here and I can't wait to get to know you and your family! It is my life's passion to capture and display custom, gorgeous images in your home. With the rise of tech-savvy-millenials, most people assumed that printed art was a thing of the past, but I'm here to tell you that couldn't be further from the truth. People are rediscovering the joy of seeing printed images in their home and it's my privilege to offer this service to my families.

My clients enjoy a full-service, unique experience from beginning to end. I work tirelessly alongside my families to create high-quality images and then assist them with creating one-of-a-kind works of art to display in their home by partnering with some of the best photo labs in America. Your portraits aren't complete until they're off of your computer and on the wall or displayed in an album so they can be enjoyed by your family every single day.

With a background in elementary education and ministry, I feel completely comfortable with young children. You can trust that I will pull out all of the stops to ensure that we not only get fabulous images during the session, but that we have FUN while doing so! 

I can't wait to hear from you and learn what I can do to design the perfect session for you featuring your very favorite people!

Julie Hills is a portrait photographer located in Carrollton, Texas, serving the greater DFW area, specializing in maternity, newborn, birth, and family portraits.

“I am so fortunate that I get to have someone as great as Julie capturing our sweet family. I love the candid shots that she gets along with the ’posey’ ones. She is genuinely invested in making sure you LOVE your pictures. She is super efficient in her turn around time to get you your full order and is just as excited to share a sneak peak with you as you are to get them. You cannot go wrong with using her.”

“What a great experience! Julie is so personable and able to connect with different personalities so easily. My husband, who dreads having photos taken, was able to relax and enjoy the process. My 1.5yo was giving her hugs. The pictures are beautiful!! I will absolutely be using her again as our family grows!”

— Danielle R.


“Julie did our maternity, birth and newborn photos, and we couldn't be more pleased with how they turned out! She always made us so comfortable and captured each moment that I had envisioned beforehand that I wanted! She nailed it every time! Now we have all of these amazing memories of our son's birth and new life that I wouldn't trade for the world. She will definitely take great care of you and your memories. Thank you Julie!!”

Nicole - “Julie is an amazing and talented photographer! I’m in love with the photos she took of our family. She was so patient and sweet throughout the entire shoot. We can’t wait for our future sessions with her!” JaCar - "I have never been a huge fan of taking photographs of myself but Julie was wonderful. My wife and I welcomed our first child 9 months ago. I was nervous we would have a hard time taking pictures with a rambunctious 9 month old boy. Julie was patient and accommodating the whole time. She did a great job of capturing the love and joy of our growing family in an authentic and meaningful fashion. If quality photographs are your goal then Julie is the person I would recommend."

— JaCar and Nicole Bray

“I have been a part of a ton of photo shoots in my life and this was by far the least stressful, most enjoyable one ever! I feel like Julie captured our little growing family in such a genuine light. She took care of me, since I'm pregnant, she provided seats and waters in a cooler to keep us hydrated and cool. She is absolutely wonderful at posing us in ways that feel natural and effortless. I don't know how to choose which photos to print! They all turned out AMAZING!! Most of all, Julie's passion and heart for what she does is so evident. She made me feel beautiful in a time in my life where I feel HUGE! ;) I recommend her 120%!”

— Ashley W.


“Julie took my maternity and newborn photos. She is incredibly sweet and patient. She made me feel beautiful and comfortable while in my third trimester, and she was gentle and loving with my one week old daughter. Best of all her photos come out beautifully!”

— Paige K.



“Julie is so personable, thoughtful, and thorough. You can tell during a session with her that she genuinely cares about giving her clients not just an amazing experience, but creating really special memories for your family. She is so experienced and knowledgeable about photography but is also very down to earth and friendly. I truly cannot say enough about our session with her. She is wonderful! On top of all of that, our photos came out so beautifully- very relaxed and casual. Nothing is stuffy or posed- the photos truly capture our family. Her ability to capture small moments and make the photos look true-to-life as opposed to super “posed” is what really puts her above and beyond. Additionally she is GREAT with kids. Her years of experience working with kids makes her a true treasure as a photographer if you are looking for someone who photographs families well. She makes them feel included and important, and somehow manages to make it a fun experience for them! If you are looking for a great photographer, Julie is 100% who you should go with!”

— Amy M.



“Julie Hills Photography has documented the most precious and memorable moments of my growing family on multiple occasions. We keep coming back because she’s the best in DFW!! She has an amazing eye and ability to capture your most favorable features...even though I had two rambunctious kids.”

— Carliss M.



“My family is not usually the best subject for photos. We have two little ones, a dog, and plenty of anxiety. However, from the minute Julie shows up she puts us at ease. Instead of feeling posed and stiff, we feel relaxed and natural. She gives her subjects the freedom to feel comfortable simply interacting with one another as she snaps away. This is the reason we have used her twice already since our two kiddos came onto the scene. I have recommended her to family and friends and will continue to do so! Not only was the experience wonderful but so is her product. She wants to be sure you have photos that capture your family at their best. For us that meant, coming back a second time due to our oldest having a meltdown- this meant the world to me! These photos are very important to us and we are so grateful to Julie for her work!”

— Meg A.



“Julie has the gift of seeing the natural and whole beauty of people and the world. She was able to capture so much love in our family photos even though my toddler was NOT cooperating and we didn’t have much of an idea about what looks we wanted. Julie guided us every step of the way and used her amazing intuition to feel out our little family and use poses/angles that truly captured our personalities and family dynamic. I love that her photography is emphasized by her use of natural light- they are never over edited. She gets it right in the camera. She has an amazing eye for color and light. So happy we found her!”
