Family photography - what an art! Julie had captured our family in a candid snapshot at an event - and made us look good -- so of course we called her for a portrait session. All of us agreed it was a wonderful experience - Julie is warm, professional, responsive. And we're thrilled with the results. An A+ experience.
I recently started a business and needed photos for my webpage. I narrowed it down to 2 photographers and went with the guy who was closer to me. BIG MISTAKE. So of course I then went to #2, who should have been #1 - Julie at Camera Creations! She was everything and more. Professional, organized and most importantly - talented!! I know they are just business headshots but I feel like a superstar. Everyone is noting how warm and personable I appear, something you certainly want when selling services. I also used her make-up artist who did a beautiful, natural job. Overall a 5 star experience!!!
Dang Julie – you’re as good as a plastic surgeon without the pain or hospital stay. Fabulous job – Thank you so much.

We will cherish these pictures for forever!

I love love love my portraits. Three generation girls and our beloved dogs! And we all look fabulous especially the granddaughter and dogs! We had fun doing the shoot and Julie was very professional but fun and helpful. She helped out with a little Photoshop and voilà beautiful pictures to last a lifetime. The price was very reasonable for the great quality. Thanks Julie.

I took my GSD, Bailey, for some photos at Julie's studio. Well, what she did was absolutely amazing! I had to leave her studio to go to my car for a moment, and she was totally calm with him during my absence. The shoot was fun. The 2 photos I chose are wonderful!! I them to my clients and friends and their faces light up with amazement at her professionalism. Get your pets to her immediately!

"I must say Julie has taken the best photos for me! I needed a head shot and she made me look beautiful. I then hired Julie to do a holiday photo of me with my husband and our sweet dog, Duchess. It is a lovely photo of us at the park, where we would take Duchess for a walk on the weekends. We loved the photo and used it for our holiday cards. The photo means even more to us now, because our beloved pet recently passed away. Thank you Julie for such a lovely photo of that special moment in time."

We enjoyed the session and everyone was happy with the pictures, "an even bigger task", I highly recommend Julie if you want to have family portraits that everyone will enjoy."

"Julie is full of passion for her photography. She loves what she does and she does an excellent job. Julie did some headshots for me and everyone commented on how terrific they are. She wants you to show you in the best light and Julie concentrates on lighting which is so important when taking photos. Julie is fun to work with which helped me to relax and thats why my shots came out great. I recommend Julie for any kind of photography from headshots to family portraits. You will be so glad you chose Julie Hopkins."

“Worked together on various projects, and felt very confident in her abilities and creativity in studio and on location. She is a pleasure to work with.”
Mike Kukuchka, MAK Photography
"I needed photos of my office for a brochure and other print advertising I was doing, and was referred to Julie Hopkins of Camera Creations. To say that I was pleased would be an understatement. Julie took the most gorgeous photos imaginable of my workspace, capturing the natural light beautifully. I was so impressed that I had her do my headshots I am now using those headshot photos for various projects I am working on—article headings, my blog, and so forth and they simply look fantastic. Not only is Julie’s work outstanding but her work ethic is exemplary. She is always on time, even early to get everything set up properly; she makes her clients comfortable during the shoot—no small feat with non-professionals—and she completes the job quickly. Best of all, her fees are affordable! I also understand that she does wedding photography, so I won’t hesitate to refer my friends to her for that service too. I was really impressed by the whole package. I can say with complete conviction that if you are looking for the best photographer in Los Angeles, look no further than Camera Creations. Thanks for everything Julie."
Dr. Nick Campos , Chiropractor Los Angeles, CA
"I was updating my website, and was in need of new headshots. I researched several people, but was not impressed. A colleague of mine, who was also updating his website, referred me to Julie Hopkins. She had taken his headshots, and he had nothing but great things to say about Julie. I recently had my headshots taken with Julie and it was truly a great experience! She has such a great eye for lighting and balance, and she is so patient! She was very professional and gave me advice on everything from what suit colors would match my skin tone, to what poses would send the right message. But she also let me have some say during the shoot, which was very refreshing! Furthermore, within a week she had my headshots retouched and ready for me to begin using. I would not hesitate to recommend Julie Hopkins to any of my family, friends, or colleagues."
