Julie Berry Cheshire has been writing with light for a living since 1996. From the moment she set foot in the darkroom in Ms. Murray's 7th grade photography class at West Millbrook Middle School, she was hooked and has never looked back. She has over 25 years of professional experience and is a PPA Certified Professional Photographer. Additionally, she has a Federal Aviation Administration UAS certificate for aerial drone photography.
Julie Cheshire Photography is currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area near beautiful Mt. Diablo State Park. Julie began her business in 1996 in Raleigh, NC immediately after graduating from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Media Production. Ten years later she got married and moved across the country to the SF Bay Area. As a member of the Professional Photographers of America, she has wonderful resources for ongoing education. She knows the importance of keeping pace in this ever-changing field. She's most definitely a "people-person" and takes pride in the fact that most of her clients don't take long to be fully at ease in front of the camera. Her images are personal, true, and show the exchange of trust she develops with all of her clients.
When she's not photographing, you're likely to find Julie volunteering for Contra Costa Rabbit Rescue, House Rabbit Society headquarters in Richmond, or Contra Costa Animal Services in Martinez.
