I’m Julie Richards and I’m a Portrait photographer based in the beautiful town of Shrewsbury in Shropshire. I feel very fortunate living here, as every day I am surrounded by beauty. I see it in the buildings, on my walks by the river, in the countryside and in the people that I meet.
It gives me inspiration in my work to create beautiful portraits for woman and men of all ages.
My passion is connecting with people and helping them feel good about who they are and how they look. Empowering them to be strong and self confident through their portraits. Helping them to bring out their beauty that maybe they feel is long forgotten or they just can’t see any more. Maybe it got lost in the hum drum of life,with children to raise, work to to be done and relationships to be had, life slips by in the blink of an eye. That’s why it’s so important to have portraits, to pass on to our families for generations to come and to be remembered by the one’s we love.
I offer you an experience like no other and together we can create the most beautiful portraits of yourself you have ever seen.

Julie put me at ease and took the most amazing photos. Thank you so much
Julie has the ability to put you at ease within a few minutes of meeting her. She works with you to bring out the best of everything in you and instils confidence in
you throughout the shoot. She really allows your personality to shine through in the work she does. I was delighted with the photographs she took as was my partner, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Frequently Asked Questions
Please click on any of the commonly asked questions we get below, if you don’t find the answer you are looking for, please contact me
How much does it cost?
My sitting fee is £199 and my collections start at £800
Do you offer payment plans?
The answer to that is, yes I do.
Can I just get the digital files?
Every image purchased comes with a print and the digital file.
Is hair and makeup optional?
It is complimentary but, if you choose not to then that is entirely your choice. I understand that some people just, don’t wear makeup and there is nothing wrong with that at all. I love a beautiful natural look! However, makeup artists know what products to use and how to correctly apply them for a photoshoot so, take advantage and be pampered!
What should I wear?
When you book I will send you a welcome pack and included in it is a style guide with tips on colours, textures, types of outfits that flatter your figure etc. We will also discuss this at your planning and designing appointment. I can help you choose what to wear and I also have dresses at the studio that you can borrow.
Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! It’s not only a perfect experience for yourself. It’s perfect for sharing with your best friend. A day of pampering, hair and makeup! It’s the ultimate girls day out! Or you could share it with your daughter, mum, sister. Whoever you wish to bring to share this experience is up to you.
Do you photograph men?
Yes I do! It’s not just for the ladies. They can be pampered too!
How long does the experience take?
It usually lasts 4-5 hours. I don’t like to rush as I want you to relax in front of the camera and to enjoy the whole experience.
How long until I can view my images?
Usually 2-3 weeks until I invite you back for your in person reveal.
Will you post my images on line?
Only if you are happy for me to do so. I will ask you to sign a model release form that gives me permission to use them for promotion of my business but, if you are not comfortable with this and want to keep them private then that is absolutely fine.
How far in advance do I need to book?
I would suggest that you book 6-8 weeks in advance.
