My name is Julie Cannon and in 2008 I started Thrive Photography in San Diego, CA where I have spent the past 5 years building my business around capturing the lives of people just as they are, thriving in their everyday lives.  As goes, with anything in life, it has been a journey of discovering my own purpose and passion within a field so broad and packed with opportunity.  

A recent move to Nashville with my husband Chad has found me not reinventing myself in a new city but simply determining and communicating what has been the backbone of building my business, and how that can translate to my new surroundings.

If I were to be completely honest, I am continually humbled that people trust me to capture them in their intimate and vulnerable milestone moments in life.  As a self professed introvert, I have found that I place a value on small group settings and getting to know people to their very core.  Where I once saw that as a burden, I believe it is that very attribute that has been the foundation of my business.  I have found that where people enter my life as clients they most often become a friend.  

I believe the purpose of my work is to give people a clear picture of who they are, through my photographs. Recognizing that it looks different for every person is what keeps me going, and challenges me to see life in new ways with each day.  I am constantly learning and am inspired and challenged by people around me to continually move forward.  I would love to meet you, get to know you and get some amazing images along the way!
