Here are the latest raves about

Julia Varga Photography- The Art of Life:

Julia was the best ever. She encompasses “under promise, over deliver”. She photographed my three children, ages 1/2, 2 1/2, and 3…very difficult. She had so many good photos, I had a difficult time choosing. She assisted in matting and framing for me, and was just a delight to work with. A year later, I am still thrilled with her work, and planning to use her again for our family Christmas card. If you want beautiful, natural shots, capturing not only the face, but the soul of your subject, you will want to use Julia Varga.

Julia captures “life” not the posed, made up, say cheese smiles but the “natural life” of the person. Loved her pictures of my sons, their wives and my granddaughters. Julia is simply the best!

I don’t even have the words…I’m in tears (and the music doesn’t help either)


You are truly talented!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

I recommend Julia Varga because, First of all I am in the military, and was deployed to Iraq. I was coming home on leave, and decided to take some family photos. I was looking online all day for the perfect place, I came across Julia’s page and emailed her, about I was interested in taking some photos. I told her this was my first time taking professional pictures, and she gave me all the information and answers all the questions I had. I was taking my leave in bakersfield, I drove all the way to santa monica to have my photos taken. When I got there she was so nice and fun. My pictures were so real and natural looking, I was so impress with the pictures.

“Hi Julia,

So everyone in the family RAVED about the photo book, they thought it was sooo amazing!

Thank you again for bringing the book to my mom before her trip, that was totally above and beyond the call of duty!

“Okay, I couldn’t finish looking through the photos because my husband came down the stairs, but let me just tell you, I am crying.  

I, as all mothers, see such deep beauty in each of my children, and you captured that beauty for me today.  My only problem now will be to choose among so many fabulous shots. 
I don’t even know how to thank you or to express how lovely and artful (art = capturing, expressing those things unable to be defined with words) these photos are. 
Thank you Thank you Thank you!”

Julia really helped me to feel comfortable when taking my picture. I was eight months pregnant and a little nervous taking such intimate pictures. She was so understanding and such a warm person I felt no embarrassment at all. She also took pictures of my family of three kids under nine years old and kept them entertained and focused which is no easy task! She really is an amazing people person which made is comfortable and a great experience. I recommend her highly! I forgot to mention, the pictures came out beautiful! I really look good in them! The pictures of my kids were also beautiful! My daughter takes terrible pictures not wanting to look at the camera and giving half fake smiles. Julia took the most beautiful pictures of her. I am so impressed with the pictures, Julia did an amazing job! She really deserves to win top prize!! Sincerely Monica and family

50th Wedding Anniversary Family Portrait

“Hey Julia,

Thanks for your speedy service and quality work.

I framed the shot of my son laughing with his wife laughing behind him , it looks like a magazine. I gave it to him for his birthday last night. I especially like how some shots look in black and white. Thanks for giving that view.

Thanks again for fitting us in on a holiday weekend. That was a highlight of the whole weekend. You were so pleasant to work with and made it a “painless” experience. Last week when I showed the proofs to my brother’s family, his 10 year old son was telling everyone at the picnic what a nice and fast photographer you are. That’s a compliment from a boy!”

Julia was my photographer for my book and website. As a result of Julia’s patience, skill and talent, she got the most wonderful shots for me to choose from. Every person that sees my pictures wants Julia as their photographer. She’ll make you look wonderful, she’ll help you relax, and you will see pictures of yourself like you’ve never seen before.
