The Empowerment Photoshoot Experience

Join me on a journey of self-discovery and self-love.  Experience the same level of expertise and pampering that celebrities have to prepare them for the red-carpet.  Take a day in celebration of yourself and express your inner goddess.

Some call these sessions boudoir, others glamour or fantasy, but I prefer to call them empowerment photo sessions, and you will soon discover why!  Read below for all the details on what you can expect when you book a photoshoot with me!

The Celebrity Experience

I work closely with you to create uniquely beautiful photographs, combining the glamour of Hollywood, the sophistication of royalty and the personal expression of your own values and taste. 


I hire only the best makeup artists in the industry to not only make you feel beautiful but to bring out and enhance your natural beauty. 


You deserve the best, and I take care of every little detail to ensure that you receive the best care and an incredible experience that you will talk about for many years to come.

Your Custom Photo Session

Treat yourself to something special. You deserve it.  You are one of a kind and your portrait images should be too. 


I meet with every client before their session for a styling and design consultation.  You get a chance to see the studio, peruse my wardrobe filled with gorgeous gowns, props and outfits,  and have a chance to touch and feel the exclusive custom photo products I offer in my collections.  Together we create something unique to you and your vision. 


Rest assured, you are in excellent hands with me as the master of your beautiful memories.  Yes, professional photos may be a luxury personal indulgence, but why compromise? You've never settled for ordinary before!

What to Expect

A photo session with me is a unique and special experience.  You'll feel pampered throughout the day.  Choose between 4-5 different wardrobe changes or looks. Bring your own or use the gowns and props I provide here in my studio. Push creative boundaries with a fantasy or editorial  makeup look.


I completely understand that you may feel a little uncomfortable about your body or in front of the camera.  I have yet to meet a woman who isn't, but I can assure you that the way I will light and pose you, you will look and feel beautiful. 


You will get to experience the full make-over and photoshoot as celebrities do, and you leave with images worthy of the cover of a fashion magazine, with you as the star!

You are beautiful, and you deserve to exist in a masterpiece.


This service is not inexpensive, I like to say that it is reassuringly expensive, since I know that my clients have exacting standards.

My session fee is $195+ per session with products sold separately. The session fee includes professional hair and makeup (for one person) by one of my professional makeup artists, a 2-4 hour photo session with 4-5 wardrobe changes and looks, and an in-person photo reveal session where you will get to select your favorite products and images! 


Your photos are an investment in yourself both now and in the future.  It's an investment that will be repaid many times over throughout your lifetime.


As a full-service studio photographer I take care of every last detail, ensuring that these memories won't simply fade into the abyss of the digital world, but rather that it will live on through quality fine art products like wall art and albums.  My products start at $215 and my collections at $1400. What you buy and how much is completely up to you, and you won't have to decide until after you have seen the images. There's no minimum purchase and you only buy what you love. My job is to create a once in a lifetime experience for my clients and create art that you will fall in love with and want to buy.
