My name is Julie Crawford, and I'm a travel photographer and published author based in the Great Smoky Mountains. I live an intentionally crafted life fueled by lyrics verses, Mother Nature's churches, and authentic connection. Camp Crawford is a space for me to share the things that set my soul on fire. May you find your own reflection here and be inspired to show up as your favorite self.
