The ability to capture authentic human moments is an art form just as much as it is a science. At JK Fotohaus, we pride ourselves expressing the visceral nature of human beauty and flawed elegance through photography.
Our founder and lead photographer, Julie Kahlbaugh, is one of Pittsburgh’s most versatile and dynamic visual creators, working with a wide variety of clients including The Emmy Nominated Science Channel show, Tomorrow’s World Today, The Army, Navy and Marines, The Pittsburgh Steelers, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, and The City of Pittsburgh.
Renowned for her polarizing portrait imagery, Kahlbaugh specializes in Engagement, Maternity, Senior, Pet, Family, and Business portraits. This innate connection with the human condition has translated into several other areas of photo work, including: Commercial, Editorial, Fashion, Lifestyle, Theater + Arts, Automotive, Event, and Real Estate photography.
The ability to see how people connect through imagery is a priceless gift that not only translates to better images, but also translates to better connections with clients, customers, guests, and readers.
Business is one of the most personal things we do on a daily basis, and Kahlbaugh has figured out how to connect humanity with the bottom line.
As she continues to diversify her portfolio, her client roster reaps the benefits of telling powerful stories through the lens of creativity.
Kahlbaugh also provides make up and hair services upon request, and is co owner of Ignite Studios, a photo studio and event venue in Tarentum, PA.
