About Ladybug Photography



Judi Heffernan was born and raised in Oakville, Ontario and was excited to fulfill a long-time dream when she opened her own photography studio in her home town. Judi has built a successful newborn photography studio which serves numerous clients from all over Southern Ontario. Parents seek Judi out for her unique newborn images and return often as their family expands. When friends and family members of clients visit the studio, they do so because of the exceptional service Judi provides. A professional photographer for over 20 years, Judi has the experience and patience to create timeless photographs that your family will cherish for many years.

Julie recently turned her passion into a career and started a Photography business from her home. Shortly thereafter, she met Judi, decided it was a perfect match, and began working at the Ladybug Photography studio. Photography has been a love of Julie's for many years. From shooting landscapes to people, she enjoys it all. It became even more of an obsession after having her first child; taking hundreds of photographs of her children personally and professionally. She looks at her environment and surroundings through a camera lens, always visualizing how it could become the perfect photograph, especially when it comes to newborns and babies. Julie loves to connect with all of her clients on their visions and continues to push her creative boundaries. Julie was born and raised in Richmond Hill and currently resides in Milton with her husband and two children. She speaks both English and Hungarian fluently. Julie strives to lead a natural lifestyle and is neutral and organic in her styling both personally and in her photography. Her beautiful children, a girl and a boy are her inspiration to pursue her dreams and do what she loves, capturing special moments with photography. Watching her two children grow and change day by day makes her realize the importance of capturing each and every milestone.

Judi and Julie feel that photography is about capturing moments in time. Judi opened Ladybug Photography knowing that newborns, babies and children change quickly – her photography is a wonderful way to stop time and preserve all those tiny details. Julie joined Ladybug Photography at the end of 2015 and brings her younger fresh perspective and wonderful energy to the studio.

Their relaxed style and creativity blend into creating fun studio sessions without set time limits since babies and children are often unpredictable. For Judi and Julie, family is everything and at Ladybug Photography they enjoy capturing your most precious family moments, a little at a time. “As mothers, they know that 'kids don't keep', time goes by quickly and it's important to enjoy our children during all the wonderful phases of childhood.

Judi and Julie have an organic style and continuously seek out new and interesting maternity clothing and newborn coverings to bring that style to life in their photographs. Ladybug Photography works with local seamstresses and knitters to create hats, diaper covers, booties and blankets.

The Ladybug Photography studio is centrally located in Oakville in a professional building – not in a residential home. Judi and Julie know the value a professional studio brings to photographic sessions in order to achieve the best quality photographs through optimization of lighting, using multiple soft boxes and flashes, a range of backdrops, and a multitude of newborn and children's props.

Please call Judi at 905-599-1312 or Julie at (905) 699-9800 to arrange a studio session.
