Hello, I’m Julia Nance, and I’m a portrait photographer helping everyday people create beautiful artwork of themselves and their families.
Julia Nance Portraits is all about working with individuals, children and families to enhance self-love, create memories, and capture moments that become lifelong treasures. Photographs are among our most important possessions, and they only increase in sentimental value as times goes on.
The artwork that I create with my clients is personalised and unique, and when it’s delivered I know it will be lovingly handed down to future generations. From our initial consultation to your very own design appointment, this experience is all about you. Are you ready to record your legacy?

"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” Ansel Adams said that, and I thought it was germane to her work. Julia ability to grasp and understand not only the technical aspects of her photography work but also understand the other side of the lens. Her photographs are intended to generate an emotional response with the viewer. Not just a headshot, Julias empathic ability to capture a sense of place or evocative expression while maintaining a technically accurate photographic representation of the subject matter is uncanny. Every interaction with Julia is an enlightening experience. I can unequivocally recommend Julia Nance Portraits!
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 relaxed and down to earth and fosters an environment that reflects this. The final portraits were just beautiful. Julia has a fine eye and a great capacity to capture her subjects essence.
Having my portrait with Julia was such an amazing experience. She was so easy to deal with and really made me feel at ease in front of the camera. Her studio is in a beautiful location and the set up is really professional which gives you a lot of confidence walking in. She has a really calming attitude and provided great direction, im not particularly comfortable in front of the camera but Julia made it feel really nice and easy. The final shots came out beautifully and I was really impressed with how quickly her turn around was. Great value for money!! Highly recommend
The level of skill and attention to detail Julia presents in her work is second to none. Her professionalism and charisma shines through and I would recommend her to anyone.
