Julia Kelleher, CPP, AFP-O, is a PPA Gold Photographer of the Year and Silver Medalist who specializes in newborn, pet and family portraits out of her boutique studio in Bend, OR. She offers her clients a photographic style that is elegant, natural and artistic, and specializes in creating heirloom wall series and albums. A specialist in sales and ProSelect presentation software, Julia helps photographers and their employees maximize their potential in the sales room without pushing a "hard sell."
Picking up her first 35mm camera at age 14, she put it down after college to pursue a love of broadcast journalism. She spent over a decade traveling the country covering general assignment stories for all three television networks. After working most recently at KATU-TV, Portland's ABC affiliate, for 6 years as an on-air anchor/reporter, she left television news to pursue portrait photography full-time. Her experience with the news industry and expertise in media relations and public communications have given her the skills and techniques to help other photographers understand, communicate, and effectively sell to their clients, and get the promotional word out about their businesses to the community.
