Julie Martin (Artfully Uncommon) II

The amazing Julie Martin has done it again! She has taken Stella Cove's girl beachwear and swimwear to another level in the several photos as she travels the world. The first interview with Julie Martin was amazing as she had captured our girl beachwear with some different imagery. We also got to get some insight in the mind of Julie and are happy for a second opportunity! This time around we get a bit of insight of her traveling life style! Her is her interview as well as beautiful pictures of the girl beachwear and swimwear she had captured along the way!

Julie Martin Interview

Girl Beachwear

Soooo you have taken a year to travel with your family - so go on - Make me feel like a couch potato - List the places you will have visited!! Which ones did you like the best and why?

We actually just started our second year of worldschooling! In our first year, we road tripped the US for 7 months, and this year have visited NORWAY, DENMARK, FRANCE, ROMANIA, SWEDEN, LITHUANIA, POLAND, CYPRUS, HUNGARY, ITALY and we are currently in the UK for 6 months (Wales, specifically!).  I have to say that Wales will always be a favorite of mine. While all of the countries we experienced were amazing for different reason, it all comes down to the people for me. The people of Wales are SO welcoming and friendly, in a way that reminds me of the Deep South, in the US. Everyone here is so eager to show us all of the local wonders and are GENUINE in their hospitality. They all just make you feel like they are REALLY happy you are visiting their country!  We are spending time in a very small town in West Wales and everyone here seems really happy we chose their town to spend time in. It's our happy place, for sure!

If you could take photos of anyone, living or historical, imaginary or real - who would it be? Why that person? How would you shoot them?

Answered this in part in the first interview with Lisa Bonet's kids, but.... for an historical figure? I would have LOVED to spend time with Frida Kahlo and photograph her. I would photograph her with her hair down...in her PJ's. I feel like there was just a whole world inside of her that still had so many stories to tell.....

Your photos are always so distinct - each one tells a different story, but I can always tell that a photo is an @artfullycommon creation. Could you pick a favorite photo you are most proud of and why? If this is like picking a favorite child then another question would be: do you have a particular moment you have not yet captured, but are working towards?

That's a pretty hard one! That seems to change every day. I have to say the attached photo of my oldest daughter, Zoe, is my favorite right now. She's my kid that doesn't love being in front of the camera, so it's a bit more rare for me to get photos of her. She is uncomfortable and awkward when the camera is out. This photo I took while we were in Romania. She climbed a tree and blew bubbles. It's so HER and so CHILDHOOD. It's pure. 
It speaks to what I strive to capture every time I break out my camera.
