Digital cameras convert the light that we see into zeroes and ones, storing moments in time as image files. But somewhere beyond the complex data sets and computer manipulations lies the ineffable feeling of what it means to be human. Knowing this, Tanya of Juli-X Studio makes a promise to do more than just frame a face or document an occasion—"I will also make a photographic copy of the emotions being felt." It's a pretty grand ambition, but her confidence and ebullience are undeniable. And she fancies herself an adept and versatile storyteller, using her gift of gab to elicit natural poses from her subjects as she shoots a full spectrum of situations, from the joy of a wedding to the joy of a birth to the joy of a divorce.
