About Julia Nance
I’m Julia, a qualified photographer with a passion for creativity. I started Julia Nance Portraits to follow my love of photographing people, to create powerful and creative portraits, and to capture headshots with personality and vibrance.
As a professional portrait photographer, I am down to earth, patient, and thorough. I prefer to take more photographs, spend more time, and explore more options than rush though your session. My portraiture studio is based in beautiful Lilydale, Victoria. It overlooks the Dandenong Ranges and is surrounded by nature, which is a constant source of inspiration. With 10 acres of bushland and paddocks, it is here that I fell in love with nature, light, and colour.
Other than portraiture, I follow other passions of travel, underwater photography, conceptual photography and creative arts. I have had incredible opportunities to photograph whales underwater, pursue ceramics, and spend five months travelling across Europe.
