I help small business owners tell the story of who they are and what they do through photos, graphics and video clips . I keep things simple, fun and informal, using my iPhone and Canva to get the photos ‘talking’ and telling your story.
What I do
My Happy Clients
I had a 2 hour 1:1 Canva training session with Julia at the end of last year and I went from zero knowledge and ability to producing my own eye catching posts! Prior to the virtual training, I had a phone call with Julia as she wanted to get to know me, my business and the types of posts I was looking to create. This meant that when we got to the training session, Julia had all the background info that she needed.
Julia made the training very experiential which was great for me. Julia was patient, enthusiastic and very creative in her thinking. I even created a few posts during the session which I went to use on my social media.
If you would like to learn how to use Canva or how to create more engaging social media visuals, I would definitely recommend Julia!Louise Gordon
Julia photographed me in my home studio, its a tiny area and I did warn Julia beforehand, but with a few moving of things we managed to get in there for a very successful photo shoot.
Julia made me feel very at ease and comfortable. I received a set of about 10 photos which I still use in my daily posts, I absolutely love them and hope one day to book Julia for another shoot once I am back in my (bigger) office for some more photos to show me making more things.

Julia has taken some beautiful photos of craft items made in our village, for us to put in our ‘shop' on our "Made in Rothersthorpe" Facebook page. 2020 and we need to be able to sell outside of our village fairs.
Julia took time to arrange each item to their best advantage and got the lighting spot on. Thanks so much Julia.Val Bridges
Julia has volunteered her time taking photographs at the Hope Centre for a couple of years now. She is enthusiastic, forward thinking and takes photographs that really capture the essence of what we are trying to achieve at Hope.
From the first time she was on site with us, she chatted with staff, service users and volunteers alike. Most importantly, I was able to (very loosely) brief Julia and leave her to it (so I could get on with my work).
Her photos are amazing and she is very generous with her time. Julia has been a pleasure to work with and get to know. We look forward to having her with us again.Tanja Haji-Miller
I asked Julia to help us make our social media posts more appealing by 'jazzing up' our photos and creating happy, positive content.
Julia has created some beautiful and heart warming posts using her design skills on Canva to showcase our work using photos and colour branding. She has also helped us to develop content by coming up with creative ideas to share around international days and our relevant projects.
We have seen an increase in our social media engagement as a result which has been great! Julia is a pleasure to work with, she is positive and encouraging and I would 100% recommend working with her.Olivia Barker White
Julia has an amazing eye for images and her approach to a photography session is fun and creative.
I got in touch with Julia because I wanted images for my social media posts and I was planning to update my website. She helped me identify a style, the right props, and she produced a wealth of pictures for pretty much any occasion.
I'm so pleased now that my website includes my own personal images rather than the same stock as everyone elses - thanks Julia.Natalie Trembecki
Julia recently took some photos for me. Wow! I had such a wonderful and fun experience, she was so helpful, efficient, extremely organised and prepared and offered help and suggestions along the way.
Her photos are stunning, high quality and I feel they really portray me in my business. I love the photos and would highly recommend Julia if you're looking for something different in your photos, and for your photos to tell a story.
I love them - thank you so much Julia!!!! They're being used everywhere from my brochures to my website and social media posts (when they eventually get done..... :-) )Steph Jones
Julia has taken some fantastic photos to get me started with my new business. She is professional, friendly and has so many creative ideas. She has since gone that extra mile sending me ideas for my business literature. Also very reasonably priced, I would recommend Julia to any business!Katie Dyer
Julia is very professional and a pleasure to work with. She will make you feel very relaxed and therefore better photographs will be produced. I have no hesitation in recommending her.Sheila Kirwan
Julia created some wonderful message boards for my social media posts.
I wanted personalised boards that were plain and simple. I also wanted to be able to add my own wording to them and for them to be instantly recognised as my posts on social media.
What Julia came up with was perfect for me and no doubt that I will be in touch with her again when I want some more created.Clare Fitzpatrick
The images Julia Harris has created for me are amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Julia spent a couple of hours with me and worked her magic. Taking photos of various items both of hers and mine, to create around 50 images I could use within my social media for various things like, quotes, adding information of workshops or generally use throughout my social media platforms.
I love the way Julia comes up with ideas you don‘t think of but also gets what you are thinking and makes it happen.
Thank you Julia I love my images and I can’t wait to start using them ❤️Samantha Cameron
Julia is great at what she does! Her relaxed attitude puts you at ease and she's good at bringing a photo brief to life. She produced a great selection of photos for me to use for my business social media posts and all for a reasonable price. Highly recommend!Emma Wilberforce
Julia created a collection of images to be used as social media posts for our campaign in September. Very little time was given to Julia but this did not phase her! The outcome was exactly to brief - a collection of warm, relaxed foot shots which included one shot that depicted the condition - "Foot Drop".
Thank you Julia, we will be using your creative and photographic skills for our next campaign.Elisabeth Reeves - NFDS
A fresh outlook on our products was just what our business needed this year and Julia couldn't have been more helpful and supportive. She took my initial ideas and made them come alive, fully embracing the products to produce fun and interesting high quality photos and videos. Julia is clearly very passionate about what she does and it can’t help but rub off, working with her left me feeling inspired and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for new ideas particularly to use on their website and across social media.Sarah @ Little Sunshine Hut
I enjoy working with Julia, she’s got me thinking outside-the-box. As a clothing brand I’m so used to the standard photography and imagery. I love the stories we are creating, she’s able to draw them out of me. She's really thorough in her preparation and comes with great creative ideas, executed really well. This is giving me fresh energy for my Social Media.Camelle Daley - Owner of House of Ilona
I was already a big fan of Julia's work before I asked her to work with me. Her ability to create an eye catching and unique image is what led me to contact Julia about taking profile photos of me for my website and the promotion of my business. I was after something a little different from the usual kind of corporate headshot, but I wasn't sure what exactly.
Ahead of the shoot, Julia asked me to provide her with some key words that described my business and the message I wanted to get across in the photos, which I thought was an excellent idea and extremely professional. From these words and the discussion we had beforehand, Julia was able to translate the ideas in my head to the prefect set of images, whilst making me feel at ease and not at all self conscious about the fact she was taking my photo.
Julia's creative eye for capturing the perfect shot, meant that I came away with a set of images beyond all expectations. I'm spoilt for choice with which ones to use, there are so many that are perfect. How she was able to take my basic ideas and produce such a comprehensive set of professional images is nothing short of a work of genius. Thank you Julia.Karen Kissane
Julia is a photographer and a stylist - her ability to combine these skills with such fluidity means that Julia can easily create the ‘brand look’ you are trying to achieve. She is very passionate about her work and always brings a sense of fun and enjoyment to our photoshoots. Julia likes to continuously come up with new creative ways to photograph products and people, making her work great for social media story telling.
Thank you Julia … I will be back in touch in the very near future with another creative brief for you to work on!Elyse Bateson - Owner of Birchfield Flowers
Julia has an incredible ability to see things from a different angle, so her photos are unique and eye catching, which is essential when you are trying to grab a consumer's attention. Her artistic flair, combined with attention to detail and her determination to get the right pictures for her clients means she delivers great results, every time. And the bonus - Julia is an absolute joy to work with.Anna Forgaard
Julia has recently produced an a array of amazing photographs for my business Time For You Domestic Cleaning.
Initially I was unsure what I wanted so I let Julia decide. Let's just say I was more than delighted with the final photos.
I'm now looking forward to the next batch of photos for my Xmas marketing.Ann Brebner - Director at Time for You (Northants)

I am Bonfirecherry, a Northampton based small business which produces unique printed items made using linocut.
I went to Julia seeking her skills after working on a new series of products, printed knot-wraps. She was a pleasure to work with, amazing and creative ideas all while keeping professional and I was very happy with the results!
When it comes to unique product photography, I highly recommend Julia for the job!Megan Leyman
Julia did some absolutely amazing photos for my crystal sets! She went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the finished result. Such a lovely lady with loads of patience as I’m a bit of a perfectionist.
I wasn’t just happy with her photos; I was ecstatic and I sold 5 sets as soon as I used them!
Will definitely be using her services again!Jan Taylor
Thank you so much Julia for all your work on capturing the Richard Cooper solid bronze sculptures in a whole new light.
We wanted to help our online customers see the sculptures in a context to understand the size & intricacy of each piece – Julia has an eye for art & was able to interpret the brief adding that special touch.
We look forward to working with JMH PhotoStories again in the near future.Deborah Davey
