The story of a fellow goddess

Hey my name is Nami Julia and I am the creative behind Nami Creative, it's so nice to connect with you! In the past 4 years my photography work has focused on empowering women through creative, transformative photoshoot experiences. I founded the Original Goddess Shoot® and became the industry leader in this space, which aims to empower, celebrate and capture women in their own, unique essence.

I have empowered over 800 women since starting this journey, and my clients have traveled from all over New Zealand, Australia and Asia to take part in the Goddess movement of self love, acceptance and celebration.

I work closely and intimately with women in a safe environment to capture their inner goddess essence in its pure, raw and beautiful form. I feel so blessed to have created a space where women can express themselves and can be seen for who they truly are; a true goddess.

After a massive wake up call in 2019 my whole life turned upside down. I went through a divorce and for the first time was faced with: who am I? What do I want my life to look like? I didn’t even know what my fav music was or ice cream flavor… because I was always in a relationship.I was in my early thirties when it all kind of went downhill and I was worried, will I ever find true love? Will I have a family? 31 and divorced… who even wants to go out with me?I’m a failure… My Life was a mess (the negative self-talk was at an all time high) on top of that my family was on the other end of the word, I moved to NZ in my twenties on my own and I felt super lonely and lost. I also hated my minimum paying office job. I knew at this point I either drown or rise from this experience, I was faced with three choices: change, accept or leave the situation. 

I decided to focus on myself and change my entire life around. I worked on myself and for the first time in my life really put myself first, I even built boundaries! Crazy right?

I since then have been focusing on re-aligning with my higher self and my soul purpose, everyday. For a very long time I didn't see my own goddess essence and light. Through inner work, tough reality checks, reflection and lifestyle changes I managed to slowly bring back to life the light that has always been shining in me; screaming to be seen. 

I have since made it my mission to empower other women, to be their guide and hold their hands through their transformation and to help them to step into their own power and to love themselves on a deeper level.

I have always been known as the girl that takes so many photos. I have been doing professional photography for the past 15+ years. I discovered my love and passion for capturing women at the end of 2019. I have since then photographed and held space for our 800+women.

To see the beauty and story unfold in front of the lens is something I don't have words for to describe. There is something very magical in the process of capturing women. It's vulnerable, raw, unique and empowering. I truly can say that I found purpose in capturing the female goddess essence through my photography.

My dream is to capture one woman at the time and help them to see their own inner light through the photos I take. The more we love ourselves for who we uniquely are the more loving we can be to everyone around us, it always starts within ourselves.

When you book with me, it’s not only a photoshoot. A Goddess Shoot® is a once in a lifetime experience that we will have together. I want you to feel free, worthy and empowered. My art comes from my own goddess essence deep within and if we align, I would love to share that with you, so that you can always look back and feel through a photograph, just how whole and worthy you are.

I like to say that I capture "feelings" rather than just photos. I want you to feel something looking at my photos because to feel means to be alive; to be human.

There is nothing vain about wanting to feel beautiful - it is your birthright and you are worthy.

I capture the natural, the raw, the real, the unique, the wild woman - the goddess that lives in all women and is waiting to be brought to life.

My next mission is it to teach other photographers to do what I do, 2024 is focusing on teaching you how to build a successful photography business and how to be an empowered creative so in return you can run a successful business and empower your clients through your work.

I have a big vision to uplift fellow women and to encourage them to live their most authentic, creative life's too.

Your art can support your fully and I will show you how.

Words of Love

Goddess Alayna

“I will never forget my experience with Nami. I feel as though she captured the essence of me that I've never been able to really see until now. I felt beautiful and real and raw and worthy of the love that had been missing within me. I will be forever thankful for this day and these moments captured by Nami. She is one-of-a-kind and a true angel who makes you feel comfortable and free within moments of meeting her.”
