Maryland High School Senior & Family Photography

Serving families in Howard County, Carroll County and Frederick County

At Summer Mint Photography, I see you for who you really are. You are made of love and all parts of you are beautiful. I want you to remember this fact for as long as possible and to create images for you that will remind you for many years to come that you are beautiful, you are loved and that you are enough.”
- Julie Goetzinger

“Julie perfectly captured our daughter for her senior photos! Her skill is masterful. She is warm and easy to be around. She put our daughter at ease and made the whole process easy for our family. She even brought dessert for our session premiere! Every photo was beautiful and it was difficult to choose our favorites. I’m grateful for her art and her ability to capture this special time in our daughter’s life.”

Julie took our family portraits as well as my daughter’s senior portraits. Julie was so easy going during both shoots and there were so many great photos that it was difficult to choose our favorites! We are so happy to have these beautiful memories and so glad we chose Julie to capture them!”

I saw pictures of Julie’s work on Facebook and something immediately spoke to me. I knew she would do a great job with my daughter’s senior pictures. She did not disappoint! From our first meeting to the reveal, she was a pleasure to work with. She is artistic, and talented, but approachable and warm. More importantly she is a good person. She barely knew us, but when Sara was injured and had to postpone her photo shoot, she came by with snacks and magazines to cheer Sara up! This was above and beyond, but assured me even more that I made the right choice!

Hi there!

I’m Julie Goetzinger and I’m the owner and photographer behind Summer Mint Photography. I specialize in high school senior portraits because I love working with teens as a former teacher myself. I started out by photographing the families of my former students and now that they are graduating from high school I love that I get to be reunited with them and to celebrate this special time of their lives with them and their families.

Along with being a portrait photographer, I’m also an intuitive and I use my intuitive abilities on my photoshoots. I visualize my subjects in the perfect lighting and ask to be guided to see the best light, poses, angles and shots to capture. I read people’s energy and know how to make them feel comfortable which helps me to capture their true personality in their shots.

Besides the shoot itself my favorite part of the process is when I go to their homes to show them their final images in a slide show. The emotions that come out when their parents see their child who has blossomed into a young adult is such a beautiful thing to witness. Many of them go on to do family sessions next as a way to capture their family one more time before they head off to college. I offer full collections including albums, wall art, phone apps and digital images to preserve your memories.

I LOVE my job and am so honored by the families that trust me to capture such a special time in their child’s life. To set up your free consultation you can go here. The most popular time to book senior portrait sessions is the summer before they start their senior year, but I’ve also had families book them right up until the graduate so that they can get images for their graduation announcements and before they head off to college. Feel free to call the studio at 443-900-5170 or email with any questions and I look forward to working with your teen soon!
