What stories are your walls telling? 

Too often I hear of people wishing they had captured more images of themselves and their loved ones.
Life flies past us, but having family photos on your walls allows you to tell your story for years to come.
Photos showcase our relationships and love for life, and they’re so incredibly precious to look back on.
Not only that, but the right artwork is enough to turn any house into a home.

 

It’s time to showcase your family

My bespoke portrait sessions are focused on creating emotive portraits to showcase in print. Your Julia Nance Portraits photo experience will be one to remember, and at the end of it all, we want to make sure your photos are looked at and adored every day – not hidden away on a computer.

These portrait sessions are all about capturing you, your personality and your beauty. If it is a personal portrait session to capture your beautiful self; a session for your family; or creating classical artwork of your children.

My approach is to capture authentic moments and beautiful personalities, with a highly polished end result. The process aims to be non-invasive, and I always go above and beyond to get to know you, and your children.

Before we meet, we’ll chat about what you’d like to get out of your session: from amazing, polished wall art to an heirloom album that can be passed on for generations.

Because that’s the truth. These photos will be treasured for generations.

Your Bespoke Experience:

How It Works:

Before your photography experience:

Every experience starts with a pre-shoot guide and consultation. This is when we will get to know each other and chat about what type of session you are after and the artwork or keepsakes you’re looking for.

During your photoshoot:

Our time together is all about ensuring you all have a great time. It’s all about capturing authenticity, personality, and beautiful moments. These are the photos that you and your loved ones will truly cherish forever. It is as much about your experience during our photoshoot as it is about your final photos.

At your design appointment:

We’ll book a design appointment to have your photo reveal – generally this is held the week after our shoot. At the design appointment, we’ll look through your new images over coffee in my studio and discuss what artwork will suit your home and what would best compliment your needs. Relax and sit back while we reflect on the journey we took together.

You can choose a fine art session for your children or yourself! These sessions are held in the studio, where we focus on beautiful lighting and poses that show poise and intimacy.

Read my wonderful feedback:

I would give 10 stars if I could. Julia is a thorough professional with a remarkable ability to pay attention to details. She made me feel comfortable and allowed me more than enough time to try and perfect various angles. Her studio location is quite picturesque, ideal for outdoor photoshoot and my dog enjoyed playing in the outdoors too. Indoor studio is suited for professional shots. She took numerous shots and showed me the results to select. She advised me on how to improve my posture and get the right expression for the camera. If you are camera shy, don't worry she will make you relax. We also tried different outfits during the shoot. She tries to understand the client by knowing more about them and their needs through a questionnaire. I found that she was able to produce the exact results that I was looking for with a quick turnaround time. I got the final product within two days of the shoot. All in all, an outstanding experience. 10 stars.

Julia was terrific to work with. As someone who hates getting photographed, Julia made me feel relaxed and comfortable and I never felt rushed. Weeks later, after the shoot, when I was trying to choose my final photos I had a fair few questions and Julia was always quick to get back to me with her very helpful answers. My biggest problem was that I had too many good photos to choose from thanks to Julia's skill as a photographer.

Julia is always so lovely to work with! She is friendly, relaxed, and makes the process so easy. Her studio is so lovely and relaxing, with views of rolling hills and beautiful music playing. Her headshots are so beautiful and natural, they're the best I've had. I've been to her twice and will definitely be going again!

Not only does Julia provide top notch photos, but a unique and individualised approach to the shoot. Julia makes the process of getting headshots fun, relaxed, and easy, which only adds to the quality of the photos she takes. She has a keen eye and her touch ups on the final products are perfect!

Had the privilege of having my portrait taken by Julia. She has a fantastic studio that's recently been done up in Lilydale which was a great space to get creative in - I love bright colours, and enjoyed playing around with her various backdrops. Julia was a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to my next session!

I was in need of a professional head shot. I googled search for someone who gave the right vibe and had diverse work. Turned out Julia was 1.5 hours away. 100% worth the trip. Julia listened to me - I asked for shots that make me look relaxed, soft and approachable. She delivered. She also has great expertise and knew that the slightest changes to hair, outfit and jewellery can make all the difference. She took her time, did not pressure me and turned to initial PDF's around in a matter of hours. The landscape around her studio is magnificent for outdoor shots. I am thrilled and will use her again when I update.

I visited Julia's studio a few weeks ago for some headshots. Straight away she made me feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. She understood the style I was going for, and I am wrapped with the photos! Julia is a very creative and talented photographer, and just a lovely person all together, I 100% recommend her!

Julia Nance Portraits was the single best experience I have had infront of a camera. I have avoided getting my headshots taken for years, often taking my own or using stock photos on my website. However Julia set me up with some amazing shots which have already generated more work!
