The Beautography Girls: Julie and Nicola

Beautography is run and owned by two sisters, Nicola and Julie Friel. Our Unique idea to combine our talents was launched on 15th May 2010. Our reputation for giving exceptional service in all areas of the business has thrived since. Our passion for our work and equally high standards has put together a winning team. We pride ourselves in being a friendly family run business that thrive on exceeding your expectations. We have a team of fully trained Beauty Therapists, Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists and Photographers.

How Beautography started:

Realising both of us having an interest in business, we thought it would be an amazing idea to put the two services together. Realising we would be the first in Scotland got us really excited about the idea. We went through several different names for the business and in the end came up with 'BEAUTOGRAPHY' which was the most ideal name, putting our service to the point as well as being nice and catchy!

Julie Friel – Head Beauty Therapist/Makeup Artist

Being a qualified and experienced beauty therapist allows me to understand the ever changing needs of my clients. I have a real eye for detail and a passion to provide the best personal service. I achieved my knowledge from Mary Reid Spa Academy before gaining experience and skills at Stobo Castle Destination Spa.

Beautography has giving me the ability to specialise in a variation of treatments using top quality products.

Nicola Friel – Head Photographer/Makeup Artist

I am a creative individual, passionate about capturing emotion and personality in my pictures. My passion for Photography began during my travels in previous years to South Africa, Australia and Cyprus. Apart from amazing sights and weather, I learned a lot about the people there and their cultures which I found very interesting. I love photographing people and love my job. Not only does it suit my bubbly personality, it is also very good fun! I feel that I am lucky I do what I do.

I have previously worked with National photography and Publishing companies and have lots of experience in creating what the customer wants. I pride myself in giving everyone a friendly yet professional service.
