The Kids Confidence Campaign

Did you know, printing your family portraits will be one of your most treasured investments?

In an age full of digital devices, screens and distracting apps, it’s easy to forget about and lose your family photos.

When you display your family photos, they’re adored every single day.

Not only this, but they become heirloom portraits, ready to be handed down to the next generation.

Don’t let your memories get lost in a sea of digital files.

We have a range of wall art, desk prints, albums and portfolio boxes that will be treasured for years to come. Don’t worry though, our all of our prints and artwork come with digital sharing files for you to post online too!

“Thank you for our session. Atmosphere was so nice. Usually I hate photos of myself but this time I have some which I really like. Thank you “

– Kasia (Lifestyle Family Session)

Do you have family portraits that you can hand down to your kids and grandkids?

The moments we share together will always be some of our most important and treasured memories. Unfortunately, it isn't until it's too late that many people often wish we captured and preserved the times we had together through family portraits.

In 20, 50, 75 years time, your kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren probably won't have access to all those family photos you have on your smartphone.

That’s why, with a range of bespoke artwork options, Julia Nance Portraits is all about designing heirlooms of your family portraits that you can display proudly in your home, and pass down to future generations.

“The reality was so much better than I had expected. For all of us had an amazing experience. Thank you for being the one to really showcase our daughter and bring the best out of her. We love ya Julia xx”

– Chrissy (Studio session)

Meet Julia

A Melbourne fine art and lifestyle family portrait photographer, based in the beautiful Eastern Suburbs.

Hello, I'm Julia - a Melbourne portrait photographer in my late 20s. I have passion for telling stories and preserving them for generations through photography.

I began Julia Nance Portraits to encourage people to love photographs of themselves and their families. Photography allowed me to embrace the parts of myself that I once thought were flaws. It opened up my confidence and made me a happier person.

Being able to give other people this gift through family portrait photography is my driving force behind Julia Nance Portraits. Not only do I aim to enhance self-love, but it's also incredible to be able to help Melbourne families create memories and capture moments that become lifelong treasures.

Are you ready to record your legacy?

“Julia made my daughter feel comfortable and relaxed by letting her choose her favourite music! And any butterflies that were hanging around flew straight out the window!! The photoshoot was fun and easy-going, and produced the most amazing array of photographs, with a combination of happy, dancing relaxed photos, and serious, arty, glamorous portraits.”

– Michelle (Studio Session)
