BIO: Julia Hembree is a creative-portrait / conceptual photographer & designer based out of Brooklyn, NY. She grew up in Saint Louis where she started her photography business at the ripe age of 13. Since then, she moved to TN to get her degree in Graphic Design and Photography, graduated, sold her beloved (hunter green) pickup truck, and moved to New York to be among the creative giants. Aside from hustling to and fro with a camera strapped around her neck, she is involved with multiple side projects such as: CreateShops (www.createshops.us), We're Making It, and teaching.
