Meet Julia, your photographer:​

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

We’ve all been hanging out to create good memories in 2020. To celebrate and spend quality time together in the real world. To start to feel like we can live our lives a little more normally again….
As a small business owner and photographer, I wanted to offer something to families who want to give something special to their hard-working kids this year. We all love to celebrate and show our kids how proud of them we are, and we need to do this more than ever this year. Particularly those students in Grade 6 and Year 12 who have missed so many of their special milestones this year.
Our mini sessions are all about celebrating the achievements of our kids, and it’s a chance for the graduating class of 2021 to get some amazing photos to remember this milestone. It’s perfectly timed for Christmas, so you’ll be sorting out all of your family gifts at the same time!
We’ll finally have a chance to make some amazing memories in 2020 – after all, I think we all need it.
