Serving Western NY. Specializing in Newborn, Baby, Child and Family Photography

About Me

Julie Steklasa Family

Hello there! I’m Julie of Julie Steklasa Photography (formally Julie Rice Photography).

My interest in photography started when my children were small. I spent a lot of time in those early years learning everything I could photography related. I started my business in the summer of 2010 and quickly realized my favorite subjects were babies and kids. Today I only photograph babies, children and families because that’s what I love, and what better way to live than to get to do what you love everyday 🙂

In addition to photography I have an Etsy shop where I sell knitted newborn hats to other photographers. If I’m not busy taking or editing photos then I’m busy knitting!

Some of my favorite things in life are cats (I’d be a crazy cat lady if my husband wasn’t allergic to them), dinosaurs, gnomes, the color blue, collecting coffee cups, fresh flowers and floral prints, not having a normal 9-5 job (I get to sip my coffee in my pj’s all day if I wanted), mermaids, tattoos, being crafty and of course my beautiful family 🙂

My studio is located at 28 Lafayette Street in Silver Creek.
