The Julia Nance Portraits Studio

Located in Lilydale, in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, you’ll love the beautiful natural surroundings of my professional family photography studio.

Time To Relax

On the outskirts of Melbourne and with 10 acres of beautiful gardens, paddocks and Australian bushland, Julia Nance Portraits offers a studio environment with all the charm of a country setting. You'll forget you're in the eastern suburbs! With a backdrop of the Dandenong ranges, you’ll fall in love (and be relaxed) as soon as you arrive.


The Studio

With a country-like charm, you’ll find our rustic studio a sweet spot to visit in Melbourne's outer east. Overlooking the Dandenong Ranges, and surrounded by beautiful gardens and native wildlife, our studio experience is all about relaxing and enjoying each other’s company. The inside of the studio is clean and modern, for fine art and contemporary family portraits and individual sessions. I use professional photographic lighting equipment to create beautiful works of art.

The best part: the studio is wonderfully private – meaning you don’t need to compete for car parks, worry about traffic, or passersby watching you have your photos taken! You can enjoy these moments all to yourself.
I can’t wait to show you around during your bespoke portrait session!

Our simple studio interior is a modern space where we create all our contemporary and fine art portraits.

While you’re here, enjoy a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, or a glass of water while we get to know each other.
