"TRue beauty" Portraiture

this is the art of capturing YOU. capturing the TRUE BEAUTY that is seen by the people who love YOU, the TRUE BEAUTY that YOU often neglect in search of self-perceived "flaws". 

The "True Beauty" experience is a 3 hour session that enables us to capture your "true beauty". It is a relaxing makeup session, followed by a slow paced magazine/Vanity Fair style photo shoot. In this session, you will learn how to look best in photos, and learn tips and techniques on how to relax in front of the camera to display the "authentic" beauty that you are! 

This studio is designed for this experience, and you were created for it! By the end of the experience, I believe that you will be able to KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt... that you truly are beautifully and wonderfully made!

I FEEL SELF-CONSCIOUS ABOUT MY BODY AND I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT BEFORE THE SESSION, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

First of all, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL as you are! When you begin to see yourself as valuable and beautiful as you are now, those extra pounds will fall off much easier. When you learn to love yourself through this shoot... you will treat yourself with more love. 

Of course everyone wants to look their absolute best.  Sometimes women use this shoot as a reward for all the hard work meeting goals. If, however, you don't lose as much weight as planned, don’t worry! I will strategically pose and light you in ways that will be flattering to you. Anyone – young and old, all shapes and sizes – can do this. We work on drawing out the gold that lies inside you.
