Julie Powell Photography

Creating beautiful contemporary style portraits of real women JUST LIKE YOU.
Working with women who feel like they have lost themselves along the way.

Women who feel self conscious and think that no-one could capture a lovely photo of them, bringing forward their true inner beauty, by considering their feelings and needs and by understanding what it feels like to lose a sense of oneself and to put everyone else first.

I love the creative process of working with people and connecting with women and helping to give them their sense of self back. If you’ve ever dreamed of being photogenic but in reality hide from the camera because you believe you are not; if you’ve ever wanted a photo of yourself, that totally captures who you really are... Then I would love to meet you, photograph you and show you just how beautiful you really are.

THERE ARE NO EXCUSES...

I’m just not photogenic” – this just isn't true, it's just good lighting, posing and direction - I have all this covered for you.

“I don’t like having my photo taken” – Not many people do, but I will not only make it easy and relaxed, and it might even be lots of fun too.

“I need to lose weight” – I will pose and light you so you're beautiful just as you are right now, your family love you for who you are, let THAT shine

“I’m too old” – No way! I promise to showcase your grace, elegance and life experience through these photos.

“I’ve never done this before” – most people haven't, everyone comes in a little nervous, I promise to make it as stress free as possible.

“I really like digital images” – That’s great! All of the printed photos you purchase come with the corresponding digital file for sharing on Social Media.

“I just can't afford it” – I work with clients with all budgets. I take Paypal, credit cards and I offer interest free payment plans.

WHY DO I NEED A PORTRAIT OF MYSELF...

Because everyone deserves a gorgeous photo of themselves

Because having a gorgeous photo is an act of self-love.

Portraits are the witnesses of our lives.

A print will last 100+ years, digital images can be easily lost

Because one day, your gorgeous photos will become priceless treasures for your family and friends.

Happy snaps and selfies are not ultimately how you want to be remembered.

Everyone deserves a day of pampering and self indulgence

Because one day your children will look for treasured photos of you - what will you leave your children?

And because we are not promised tomorrow and we don’t know what the future holds...

MANDY

“Wow I could so get used to being pampered, my photo session was totally enjoyable and I am so glad I made the decision to book.

After a personally challenging year followed with unexpected health issues that seen me stranded and having to cancel my long awaited all girls overseas trip, I made the decision to put me first more often, not just once in a decade or two.

So I booked my session with Julie, best thing I have done for me in way too long.I was excited to get my photos taken, Julie asked plenty of questions to better understand me and what I was wanting from my experience, I really felt I was understood and my session really reflected me.

So it just happened to be my 47th birthday on the day of the photo shoot, best birthday ever, thanks to Julie.

The last year has shown me to do more for me now and don't wait for the once in a life time experience make them everyday. Have that coffee with a new friend, take that weekend trip, see that movie, get that massage, get pampered and celebrate yourself today.

Thank you Julie for my wonderful time - Mandy”
