Hello Beautiful!

I’m excited to share this “portrait session” experience with you. It may change the way you see yourself! I believe everyone should have an amazing portrait and it’s my mission to create one for you.

You have your choice of a MODEL-FOR-A-DAY or a FANTASY “vision” portrait. The MODEL-FOR-A-DAY Portrait is a luxury experience where you’re the star! These images can also be used for personal branding. In the FANTASY Portrait, we help you create a transformative image you’ll use for personal inspiration, empowerment and connection with your deeper self.

To help you figure out and connect with the person you want to see in your portraits, you may want to make some notes. Who you are in this moment; how you want to see yourself; which parts of yourself do you love, or maybe that you have lost and want to reconnect with? If you’re willing to share some of those insights with me, I’ll be better able to capture the amazing person you are and want to show. Please don’t hesitate to call, text, or email me if you have any questions.

WHAT will I get with a “MODEL-FOR-A-DAY” or a “Fantasy” PORTRAIT?

initial “design” session

Several weeks before your photo shoot, we’ll connect (over the phone, via Zoom, in our studio, or with you at your home). We will talk about the mood of your shoot, whether you want a Model-For-A-Day or Fantasy portrait. We’ll decide on your location, whether in-studio or in your most-favorite environment. We'll talk about wardrobe needs and the print products you want.

If you've chosen a Fantasy Portrait, we’ll have a discovery session. About your dreams and memories, your experiences and desires, your hopes for the future. The object is to "let go" — and explore feelings and thoughts you may not get to express in your daily life. We’ll work together collecting inspirational images to guide and fine-tune this "unexplored" self.

a try-on appointment

A few days before your session, we’ll have a try-on appointment via Zoom, in our studio, or at your home, to finalize your wardrobe.

The Makeover

When you arrive at our studio, we’ll do your hair and makeup. We want you to absolutely love your images, so let us know if you’d like any adjustments to your styling.

The Shoot

Once you’re ready, You're the star! Get ready for a fun day surrounded by a supportive team dedicated to make you look fabulous. I’ll connect to capture genuine expressions and the light that shines from inside you. I’ll guide you through a series of poses designed to flatter your shape and showcase your beauty. Special props, backgrounds or costumes we’ve decided upon will be available.

Signature Retouch

After the shoot, I'll hand-select the best images and give each one a "Signature Retouch".

Reveal & Ordering Session

We'll have an in-studio reveal and ordering session, I’ll present the best images from your shoot. You'll choose which images you’d like to purchase and place your print order.
