About

Photo of Julia DumarsThank you very much for visiting my web site.

My name is Julia DuMars and I am the photographer and owner of Folly Photos.  I live and work at Folly Beach, SC, a small barrier island and funky little community just outside of Charleston, SC.

My passion is capturing people, moments, events, vacations, landscapes on the beach that will turn into a lasting memory for my clients.   I specialize in portraits of children, families, high school seniors, pets, weddings and all things lovely in this wonderful natural place called Folly.

When creating, I look for the compelling sparkle of one’s eye, the grin on one’s lips, the sand on a baby’s foot or the gnarled grain of driftwood contrasting with the fresh face of youth.  The light, the color palette, the sense of personalities and all the special details are unique in every photo shoot.

My sessions are relaxed and fun.  I want to celebrate your special time and to tell your story of being close to the water’s edge.

When I am not behind my camera, I am spending time with my two dogs, enjoying the natural surroundings of Folly and working with my husband on our two other nature inspired businesses, Tideline Tours and A Sea Ceremony.
