Corporate Headshots & Personal Branding Photography Melbourne
Now you can be relaxed in front of the camera when taking your business headshots & branding portraits.
At Julia Nance Portraits, you can start feeling at ease about having your photo taken.
Do you get sweaty palms even thinking about having to get headshots taken? Are you the type who “just isn’t photogenic”?
If so, you’re not alone; When not done correctly, a photo shoot can be scary and awkward. Awkward posing and unnatural smiles produce average photos and doesn’t help your pre-photo shoot anxiety in the slightest.
Sadly, these feelings are too common. Many business owners feel uncomfortable getting their photo taken and use sub-par photos instead.
You Only Have One Chance At A First Impression
So many business owners and corporate professionals know they need branding headshots but hate the process, so they either take the photos themselves or have a friend or family member take them.
The only problem is, the finished product isn’t as good as letting a trained and qualified professional take them.
Unlike your uncle Roger who is “handy with an iPhone”, a professional will capture moments that DIY photographers won’t.
The only thing even worse than having a poor quality headshot as a part of your branding is using the same stock images that you see everywhere. As you know, people do business with those they know, like, and trust… How do you expect people to know, like, and trust you if all they see are stock photos?
Putting your best self out there in your branding builds that trust so much more than a stock photo ever will.
Finally be comfortable in front of the camera
My name is Julia Nance, I help business owners and corporate professionals take portraits and headshots they can be proud of.
I’m a qualified photographer, with a Bachelor of Photography degree from RMIT University, and I have over 8 years of experience with studio portraiture.
To make sure you get the very best headshots, I have created an environment and process that ensures you’re as comfortable as possible, as Geelong based business owner, Vince Massara found when getting his headshots.
Vince said that he had previously “avoided” getting headshots and mentioned how he used a range of different images on his website and socials, creating a muddled message. However, in my relaxed Lilydale studio, Vince was able to get a series of headshots that he used throughout all his marketing materials.
And it isn’t just Vince who I have helped. I have taken headshots for business owners all around Melbourne:
An experience like no other
Getting your corporate or personal branding headshots with me is an experience like no other. I don’t rush my clients or have a crazy strict time limit. Instead, I prefer to take the time to really make sure you’re comfortable and happy with the results.
How do I do that? Glad you asked.

Julia is very professional and has the ability to capture great photos.
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!
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!
I highly recommend Julia Nance Photography. Julia really takes the time to find out what you want from your session.
Sharee, Owner at Wellness & Co
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 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 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.
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
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 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!

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!
