Julia Nance Portraits…
Your Melbourne Headshot Photographer
You’re here because you need a great headshot. What’s a great headshot? Well, it should show personality, speak your brand and capture the best of you.
When it comes to headshot photography, it’s not about a 30-second sitting that reminds you of school-photo day.
What you need is a headshot photographer who makes you comfortable, gives you confidence and direction, and produces consistent high-end results.
It’s a good thing you’re here.
At Julia Nance Portraits, you get all of this, in my beautiful no-rush environment.
It’s my goal to get you great images that show you at your best and help you dominate your career.
Whatever style of portraiture you need, you’ll get high-quality service that prioritises you from every step of the way.

you can use them within 3-4 working days!
Flexible Session Times:
I understand that taking time away from work isn’t always practical.
This is why I offer flexible session times at nights and on weekends.
I launched Julia Nance Portraits in January of 2018, after years of portfolio building and a Bachelor of Photography degree from RMIT University. All up, I have 8 years of experience in studio portraiture, and even more behind a camera in general. I’m an accomplished retoucher too, and work with people of all ages, indoors and outdoors.
The Julia Nance Portraits studio is a place of joy. All my clients comment on the relaxed environment (it’s super beautiful too). It’s no-rush too. This means we can capture the exact images that you need, and as we go, we’ll review everything to ensure you’re happy.
Every client I work with is different – and that’s what I love. I’ll do what I can to get to know you, to help capture who you really are. The best part about portraiture is how every image is truly unique. And for that, I have to thank you.
Julia is an expert at her craft - it has been an absolute pleasure to work together with Julia Nance on a jewellery photoshoot. She is professional, has great knowledge and skill with photography and post production, and is very warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend her both for her art photography and her portraiture. Wishing you all the best Julia!

Sharee, Owner at Wellness & Co
Thank you so much for the photos and the shooting. It was super nice and easy to work with you and the photos are amazing! I don’t think I have ever had that good pictures of myself!
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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this photoshoot. Very relaxed environment. Julia was quick & easy to take directions from. Im thrilled my final prints which have pulled in more work.
Julia is wonderful! She was engaged by my business to take corporate head shots and branding photos. She put everyone at ease and the photo quality is amazing!! Thanks Julia!!
Joy - Director at True Blue Migration
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!
It was really nice to get professional headshots taken by Julia, her studio set up is amazing and i am delighted with the final result! totally recommend her if anyone is looking to get amazing headshots taken.
Loved the experience, the location and the relaxed atmosphere. And most of all, love the photos that were taken. So hard to choose.
Owner of VA Directory
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!
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!
Vince Massara, Owner of The Content Friends
Julia takes amazing photos! She’s patient and creative, taking beautiful head shots! Would 100% recommend her! She won't rush you and her little studio is adorable!
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.
Alesha, Physiotherapist & Researcher
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 is very professional, friendly and warm. My son felt so comfortable having his photos taken for his first photo shoot and really enjoyed it too 🙂 The photos are amazing! Thanks Julia!
Jane, Zed's mother.
Great service, very happy with the results and would highly recommend to others.
Super friendly and professional! Had a really great experience having headshots done by Julia
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!

Julia is very professional and has the ability to capture great photos.
Julia is such a cool person to work with, while simultaneously producing beautifully executed photographic work. I felt calm and really taken care of in her workspace. Her shots will be used by my business for a long time to come!

It’s time to take a break. Take a break from work, from stress, from busy day-to-day life. Overlooking the Dandenong Ranges, with beautiful paddocks and trees, you’ll feel a world away at my studio (even though you’re really not).
The studio is equipped with tea and coffee facilities, heating and air conditioning, a range of coloured backdrops, and all the lighting gear we would need.
Outside, we have an abundance of natural bushland and paddocks to explore. So many of my clients have benefited of a mix of indoor and outdoor imagery to give them a complete portfolio of results to choose from.
Take the Leap:
Put yourself first, and invest in professional headshots to give the right impressions.
