Hi, I'm Julia

A portrait photographer based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.

Capturing people at their best is my thing!

I love showing my clients that photographs aren’t as scary as they feel. My job is to remind you that individuality is beautiful, and together, we will capture you at your very best.

Portraiture gives me an opportunity to connect with people and transform their perceptions of themselves into something positive and empowering. 

P.S: Photographed here with me is my little doggy called Felix.
