Graduate Mini Sessions

– 2020 YEAR 6 & YEAR 12 –

Graduate Portraits

Do you have a year 6 or year 12 student graduating in 2020?*

We want the very best for our kids, and it’s just heartbreaking to see them miss out on the milestones they’ve worked so hard for.

While the class of 2020 may have missed some big events this year, it doesn’t mean we can’t help them celebrate and remember their hard work and graduating year. Grade 6 and year 12 kids deserve to have the opportunity to make something great in 2020!

We’ve got an opportunity for your family to join in our Graduate portrait sessions! In your 20 minute session, we’ll capture beautiful lifestyle portraits of your graduate to capture this special time in their life.

You’ll get two beautiful, printed images displayed in our portrait duo presentation folder, plus two matching digital files sized for social media sharing! 

* Even if your child isn't a graduate, we would still love to help them celebrate their year. All are welcome!

Best Friends Photos:

A part of what makes school so special are the friendships we make. Getting some photos of best friends together will be such a treasured memory and so much fun!

For friendship sessions, we can book a back-to-back session to give extra time to get all the shots we need for each family. 

For Kids Who Aren't Graduating:

Even if your child isn’t graduating this year, you can still express interest in these milestone mini shoots! Because every child deserves to celebrate their achievements, and getting through 2020 is certainly a big achievement for all of us, especially our kids.

While these sessions are designed to focus on your very special graduates, we can include some photos of your family together at the end of the session.

Yes, this is a great idea! I’d suggest booking out two booking slots back to back with your friends so that we can have some overlap between each session to make sure both families get all of the images they’d love.

If you’d like to arrange this, please get in touch via email and I will see what I can do!

Yes! We will have a special range of products exclusively for these sessions. They include matted prints, desk prints, multi print packs and digital file packages.

No, we do not have a minimum spend for additional images. You can choose to purchase additional images if you love them!

As we are based in Metro Melbourne, we are waiting for further advice in regards to the easing of current restrictions before we schedule these sessions.

We are generating an expression of interest so we can notify you first once bookings are open.

At this stage, we are looking at booking sessions across a weekend in mid-November, all things going well.

You will receive the two matching files of the images you choose for your included portrait duo.

There is also an opportunity to purchase additional digital file packages separately. 

Once our studio is open again, we’ll be working with a strict COVID Safe plan.

This means we will be maintaining social distancing between us, and the graduate sessions will be held outdoors, where things are a little safer. We also have hand sanitiser on hand and will be disinfecting all surfaces in our studio environment.

Don’t worry, we won’t be opening the doors to the studio until Professional Photography is a permitted activity and deemed safe by the relevant authorities.

About Julia, your photographer:​

Hello, I’m Julia Nance, a family and portrait photographer based in Lilydale, Victoria – in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs.

I’ve been photographing for over 10 years, and have captured hundreds of people in my time as a photographer. I launched Julia Nance Portraits in 2018 to follow my passion for photography and to help show people how special they really are.

I discovered photographs of my grandparents and parents that allowed me to feel a connection to my past. It showed me how important our family pictures are, and how their significance grows as time passes. 

Help your graduate create a special memory...
