About Julia Nance Portraits

Hi, I'm Julia

A Portrait Photographer

Capturing people at their best is my thing!

I love showing my clients that photographs aren't as scary as they sometimes feel. My job is to remind you that individuality is beautiful, and together, we will discover what it is about you and your personal brand that makes you unique. Then, we work with that.

Things I LOVE

Underwater Photography
Harry Potter

Hello, I’m Julia…

It’s probably safe to assume I love portrait photography, but you might want to learn a little more about me.

After all, if I’m going to take your portrait you probably want to know who you’re dealing with.

When I was a child, I fell in love with photography through disposable cameras, point-and-shoot systems, and eventually my dad’s fancy DSLR.

I managed to find something I loved, and in 2012 I was accepted into a 3-year Bachelor Degree at RMIT University, where I learnt everything from studio lighting to high end retouching. 

Throughout the past 10 years, I’ve fallen in love with travelling, explored underwater photography (including photographing humpback whales), and started my business, in 2018.

Outside of photography, I adore my dog Felix – a cheeky, black fluffy pup with a huge personality. I’m not big on huge parties, but enjoy a quiet breakfast out or dinner with friends.

As a bit of a dork myself, I’m easygoing, non-judgemental, and very accepting – you have nothing to worry about by being yourself in front of me.  I love helping people learn to love photographs of themselves, and truly believe our uniqueness is what makes each of us amazing.
