Julyssa Schenk Photography bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    Hola Y’all. I am Julyssa Schenk and I am thrilled you stopped by Julyssa Schenk Photography, Welcome! But enough about you, let me gush over me …

    I am an Arizona photographer of families, children, newborns and, on occasion, music bands and weddings. More than that, I am a mother to THREE beautiful children (no bias here!) and have been married to my STUD of a husband for ELEVEN self-discovering years!

    I LOVE piecing together my style from TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Nordstrom Rack. I am passionate about running long distances and challenging myself physically. And if you want to make me laugh, just turn on America’s Funniest Home Videos (weird, right?). Music of all kinds is a great source of pleasure in my life as is decorating. In the end, what brings me the greatest measure of joy is being surrounded with those family and friends who love me just the way I am.

    I look back at my life, a mountain of moments, a large collection of memories, some captured, some alive only in my mind and I wonder at it all … how fast it has gone, the ups, the downs, the accomplishments, the failures … and recognize it for what it is … a Journey.

    My “photo-journey” has helped me see the world differently, see myself differently, navigate emotions, and leave my imprint on the world. I want you to be a part of my journey as an observer, as a participant, in whatever capacity. So stay awhile and enjoy.

Gilbert, AZ Family Photographer

This is a fabulous family!

I’ve been friends with Cynthia for about 7 years.  We met when we had just our little girls and through the years our families grew and so did our friendship.  Cynthia has great style, but like a lot of women, she doubts herself so she asked me to come over and help her decide on her clothing for her portraits.  I had so much fun helping her plan and gather all the pieces together.  I even suggested some yellow bow ties … and she came through by making them herself!  I even ran to Target for her to get something for baby girl.

AND

what’s left?

Why, printing these images for all to enjoy:)

LOVE your family Cynthia!
