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 tailor your order to your budget, and we can even set up an interest-free payment plan! (Learn more here)
Fine Art Portrait Sessions
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. There is a really classic feel to the final portraits, which are delicately retouched to provide a painterly, renaissance finish.

Lifestyle Portrait Sessions
Family portraits shouldn’t just be another thing on your endless to-do list. A lifestyle family portrait session is all about spending quality time together in a relaxed way. We photograph a collection of group shots, while also having an adventure. There is a real candid, natural approach to the final shots, and they really do tell your story. The results are perfect for both the wall and an album, and they’ll be treasured for years to come.

Julia is very professional and has the ability to capture great photos.
Julia takes amazing photos! She's patient and creative, taking beautiful head shots! Would 100% recommend her! She wont rush you and her little studio is adorable!
Had the privilege of having my portrait taken by Julia a few months ago. 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!
Could not recommend Julia more highly. A gentle soul who exercises her profession with such kindness, accuracy and a comforting warmth in her engagement with clients.
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 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 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!!
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.
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!
Thanks to Julia Nance Portraits. Finally someone took a great headshot and I can say that Julia has done a fantastic job !!
I highly recommend Julia Nance Photography. Julia really takes the time to find out what you want from your session.
Julia is a very talented photographer who goes above and beyond every time.
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.
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.
Great service, very happy with the results and would highly recommend to others.
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!
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.
"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!
Had a great time with Julia. My 2yr old daughter warmed to her straight away and it was a fun and comfortable experience. The photos were also amazing at her beautiful studio. Definitely recommend her.
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.
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!
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!
An amazing photographer who captures the best of you. Thrilled!!!!
From the moment we met Julia, she made my daughter feel at ease during her photoshoot. Images were amazing and excellent quality! I would highly recommend Julia for portraits.
Loved the experience, the location and the relaxed atmosphere. And most of all, love the photos that were taken. So hard to choose.
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!
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

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.
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!
Super friendly and professional ! Had a really great experience having headshots done by Julia
Julia has been elegant and professional with her work and style in portraiture. She is kind hearted and makes you comfortable when having a portrait taken. A great natural experience to have given her experience and dedicated study in the field.
