I definitely had first portfolio photoshoot nerves but Julia put me at complete ease, guiding me through everything from my outfits to facial expressions. I had a thoroughly enjoyable morning and I am so happy and overwhelmed with my final shots. I would without a doubt recommend the experience of working with Julia to anyone!.
I had always been a fan of Julia's work after seeing a numerous amount of dancers who had had portfolio shoots with her, so I went ahead and booked my shoot.
I couldn't have been happier - beginning to end Julia couldn't have made me feel more comfortable. We both worked together in creating my looks and her advice and guidance was so helpful.
I was thrilled with my pictures and just the overall experience! I would definitely recommend her to any dancer and non dancer. I Wish I could do it all over again!
I loved my shoot with Julia!
I had never had a portfolio or shoot done before so this was my first time and I am delighted with the outcome. She really makes you feel at ease and helps you every step of the way. Both Julia and Philly who did my makeup were so lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The time passed so quickly but I had so many shots to choose from and the thing I loved was the variety in my shots that she made sure I had!
I couldn't be happier with my shoot with Julia or the outcome of my pictures. Also fantastic edits! Do not hesitate and get one booked in! Thank you so much and I can't wait to have another.
After following Julia's work on Instagram for some time I was so excited for my shoot and hoped that I might look even half as good as the models / dancers i'd seen on her page. From the moment I emailed Julia she was so friendly and fast at getting back to me, I knew that I was in good hands!
Straight away on the day I felt like Julia was so onboard, suggesting ideas and outfits etc, along with Krystle the make-up artist I felt instantly at-ease and like I was hanging out with friends that i'd known for ages.
Throughout the shoot i felt so comfortable and had loads of fun, and when I got the photos back I was over the moon. Julia had really captured 'me' and I was so so happy with them, I loved so many I just had to pay for extras!!
I got my retouches through so quickly and the final results have given me so much confidence and excitement for the future.
Thanks again Julia xx
I’d seen a lot of Julia’s work through friends that had shot their portfolios with her and had always loved her style of photography. When my portfolio needed updating I couldn’t wait to book in with Julia.
Once I had confirmed my booking with her I was so excited to get into the studio and start working with her. I had really high expectations after hearing great feedback from friends that had worked with her previously. She did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations.
From helping me choose which outfits to wear, directing me and making me feel at ease and ensuring I had fun and felt fabulous, I had a great shoot. Amy the hair and make up artist was great and together they both helped me achieve the final images I had hoped for.
I would highly recommend Julia and would definitely shoot with her again in the future.
Julia was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was so engaged in the shoot and made the most out of every minute we had. She helped me get exactly the looks I wanted and even more options.
Julia made me feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera and she made me completely forget how nervous I felt before arriving. I am so happy with the photos I got from the shoot and I can't recommend her enough! I will definitely come to her again next time I need photos.
I went to Julia for my professional dance pictures as I'd already seen her work and it was incredible.
I was so nervous at first as I had never done anything like this before, but Julia couldn't have made me feel more comfortable! The day was super relaxed and so much fun!
My pictures at the end of the day were absolutely amazing and they were edited so quick after selection, every time I received the edited version one day after requesting. If ever I needed pictures again I would go straight back to Julia without a doubt, and couldn't recommend her enough to people looking for a photographer.
Before my shoot, I was so nervous and felt so unexperienced as this was the beginning of my portfolio.
As soon as I arrived I met Julia and I felt so much more at ease. She talked me through the days plan and helped pick the right outfits that suited me best. Throughout the day Julia constantly advised me on hair, make up, shoes, and most importantly she directed me during the shoot - how I should stand and where's best to place my hands etc.
I couldn't thank Julia enough for my amazing shots, the progess of picking through every photo and the returns of the finished images gave me great confidence in presenting myself for future auditions.
I loved working with Julia because she is easy going and fun. She gives good direction, helps with styling, and knows exactly which angles to get so you never have to worry too much! Some of my favourite shots are from her and I would love to work with her again in the future.
I came across a few of Julia's pictures and really liked them. I wasn't looking for anything more than head shots and was fairly nervous about the day, as I wanted a good end result.
My photo shoot day was absolutely brilliant!!! Julia was so down to earth, making sure I felt comfortable and also making sure I got what I wanted out of my pictures - and more. Julia was happy to do a number of outfits in set ups which she thought would work well.
Receiving every single picture taken and at an extremely reasonable price, with five chosen and being perfectly edited, I can say I was more than happy!
I was absolutely thrilled with the whole experience and would recommend Julia to anyone!
Thank you so so much again.
I was super happy with the shoot day and the results. Julia knows what you want and what works which made my session so much easier. It was awesome to work with such a professional photographer!
As a dancer getting strong photographs is very important. I was very happy with my portfolio pictures. Julia gives great direction for posing and was able to capture angles that work well for my shape. The editing made my pictures look very professional while still remaining realistic to how I look. I felt very confident and relaxed with Julia, which helped capture my personality on camera. I am already saving to have a new set of pictures done again!
The session with Julia was brilliant. Having never done anything like it before, she made me feel relaxed and was extremely encouraging throughout the shoot.
Julia managed to take pictures that ticked all of the boxes that I needed - from more classical headshots to stunning and flattering bodyshots. The final edited pictures were beautiful and extremely professional. I highly recommend booking a shoot with her.
The pictures are stunning Julia, I can't thank you enough!!
My session with Julia was incredibly professional from the outset. Julia replied straight away and the photo shoot was set up quickly and easily at great, convenient facilities. Her professional demeanour and suggestions were also of great help, suggesting outfits and a very helpful hair/make up artist.
The photo shoot too was amazing: Julia created the perfect working environment and the result is a wide range of amazing photos which accurately fit my personality.
The finished and edited photos were sent through really quickly and I couldn't be happier with them! Thanks Julia.

As a dancer it is of the upmost importance to create a strong and innovative portfolio. This came at such ease with Julia's knowledge and expertise.
Julia helps with every aspect of your shoot from stylistic choices, endless direction and ensuring you feel confident throughout. My shoot with Julia was the perfect combination of professional and fun and created a perfect working environment.
Julia was such a pleasure to work with and my final images reflect the talented photographer that she is! I couldn't recommend her enough.
Julia created a relaxed yet professional atmosphere from the beginning of the shoot. The photos are exactly what I wanted and the whole process was thoroughly enjoyable.
The pictures were sent through to me so quickly and I advise anyone who needs professional photos to go with Julia! Not only did her obvious skill for capturing great photos impress but a massive thank you to the amazingly talented hair and makeup artist Krystle for transforming me throughout the day!

I spent such a long time looking for a good photographer for my portfolio pictures but I couldn’t make up my mind, but then I came across Julia and after looking through a couple of her photographs I knew she was the one!
Julia made me feel welcome and comfortable from the moment I arrived and the shoot was easy going and so much fun and extremely professional at the same time.
She helped me with my outfits and gave great directions for posing which was exactly what I needed!
Her retouching/editing skills are outstanding and I received my pictures quickly and in super high quality.
I couldn’t be happier with my decision of choosing Julia for my portfolio pictures and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
I spent an awfully long time researching which photographer I should get a portfolio shot with as I wanted something that accurately represented me, my style, and what I actually look like!
Once coming across Julia and seeing the array of shots she had produced for different people I knew she was the photographer for me.
Once booking a shoot date, I sent through ideas for the kind of looks I'd like to achieve. When I arrived Julia had a whole plan based around what I had sent through, also with some additional ideas to try out.
The whole experience was immensely fun. I had plenty of direction and felt at ease as though I was just being shot by a friend.
I have to say a massive thank you to both Julia and Krystle, my make up artist for the day, for making me feel and look the best I ever had. I have the pictures I've always wanted!

Julia was recommended to me through my agency and I honestly cannot compliment her enough.
We worked through over 8 outfits in around 3 hours and Julia captured such a great variety of different shots for my portfolio.
She was so easy to work with and knew exactly what would capture well on camera. I felt so relaxed shooting with her, she helped me with my poses, and we had such a laugh!
I couldn't believe how quickly she got the edits back to me and I genuinely love them all! I can't even pick out a favourite.
Thank you so much Julia. You were a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to shoot with you again :)
Julia was the first shoot I had had done, so I was nervous and worried about being able to create photos like she had taken in the past. Having seen her work before I was amazed and straight away wanted Julia to be my photographer.
The day was so chilled and allowed me to have a great time and most of all fun. Direction and help was given if needed and a general relaxed atmosphere was created.
I am Over the moon with my photos I would recommend Julia to anyone. Honestly amazing!!!! Thank you so much!
Julia is the perfect choice!
After researching various photographers I came across Julia's pictures and I fell in love! Each image she captures is unique and she has a gift for representing all types of personalities through her camera lens. She is an efficient photographer, helps with outfit choices, delivers the re-touched images quickly and makes her clients feel at ease during the shoot.
I had the best time during my shoot and got exactly the results I wanted and more. I can't recommend Julia enough.
Thanks Julia and also to the wonderful Krystle for the stunning hair and make up creations!
Choosing my first portfolio shoot was something I wanted to get right first time. I did my research and the name that kept cropping up was 'Julia Underwood'. Julia's approach to the shoot was very relaxed and fun. She complimented me throughout the shoot which helped me feel at ease and deliver. Julia knows exactly what looks good and what is necessary for each individual. Not only that, the process was well organised such as the studio space, location and the make up artist. I was amazed at how quick and efficient Julia's editing was. The photos where well retouched and appropriate for what I was looking for. She has an eye for what looks good and I trusted her judgment. I knew I was in safe hands.
Thank you again Julia, I'll be back soon for another shoot!
I chose Julia for my pictures shortly after coming across some of her work online. I loved how different each picture was and also how beautiful but natural she made all of the girls look. The shoot day was so much fun - I felt like I was hanging around with
2 friends for the day. Both Julia and her wonderful make up artist, Philly, made me feel super comfortable and confident. They helped with styling and understood exactly what it was I wanted. I was extremely happy with each picture I received and got them
back so quickly after picking my favourites out. I would recommend Julia to anyone, she has a great eye for angles and for capturing a personality in a picture. I was extremely impressed and happy with my experience!
I went to Julia for some natural headshots as she was recommended by a few friends and I'd seen a lot of her work on social media, and I wasn't disappointed.
I'm normally nervous and awkward getting my photo taken but Julia made me feel so relaxed and gave me loads of direction. I felt like she made the day really individual for what suited me (location, lighting etc) and was really helpful in choosing what I should do with my hair, make up and what I should wear to get the best possible shots for me. She was really professional and has such a good eye for little details that really make a photo. I ended up getting way more shots than I intended because I was so pleased with them!
Although I only booked in for headshots because that's all I needed for my portfolio at the time, I ended up with so much more than I'd hoped for from the shoot. I've had great feedback from my agents and have booked work from the shots Julia took of me.
I would highly recommend her and will definitely be going back when I need an update.
Thanks Julia! :)
