There is no such thing called being photogenic. I will show you how beautiful you are, inside out. I was never excited to photograph models. I am most excited to transform and photograph those who is not comfortable in front of the camera and haven’t been feeling beautiful for a long time. We will create a legacy of beautiful portraits that you will cherish for a lifetime
I create something that lasts
Fine Art Classic Portraits
A fine art portrait session is experience like no other. It is empowering in a way that can change a person’s life. I am here to help you on your journey towards self love, confidence, and embracing your vision as the best version of yourself. I promise to provide you with once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget and create gorgeous, timeless portraits that you will treasure forever.
Portraits are legacy. At some point, your portraits will become the most valueble items your loved ones and children will ever own. And it is my passion to create portraits that last both in physical form and in style. I am inspired by both the modern high fashion photography style and the neoclassical era of oil paintings. The artists who give me the most inspiration are Vanity Fair's photographer Annie Leibovitz, painter from the neoclassic era Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and John William Waterhouse.

Before The Photo Shoot
All sessions are tailored specifically to each client, in a consultation session with me where I will help you to create an empowering vision for the photoshoot. Questions will help you to visualize a beautiful, confident image that also show case your own personality and story. I will discuss ideas on posing, lighting, wardrobe, and style to make sure that your vision becomes a reality. Once your session is booked, I will send you the studio magazine with plenty of tips on how to prepare for your photo session.
SELF-LOVE & CONFIDENCE COACHING
I am a certified life coach. I have designed a evaluation tool for you to understand what area of self-love and confidence you would like to address during the portrait experience. E.g. Do you want to open your heart to be able to receive help? Do you want to have more power to say no and set good boundaries? Do you want to enhance the believe that you are worthy of love despite imperfection? The goal will be part of the vision for final images.
During The Photo Shoot Day
WHOLE DAY SHOOT
Your session includes a full-service photo shoot day with me and the makeup artist/assistant. It typically start around 10am in the morning for hair and makeup, with a lunch break and then shooting in the afternoon with up to 5 style changes. The photoshoot is never rushed as I only book 1 shoot per day. I will carefully guide you through each pose and expression in different settings to bring out your most beautiful innerself. Most of people who comes to the studio have never done a professional photo shoot before. My encouraging and affirming approach will get everyone relaxed and feel beautiful.
MAKE UP, HAIR & WARDROBE
The makeup artist I work with knows what is the best makeup and hair styles for your photoshoot. It is included in your session. You will also learn personal makeup and hair tips during your session as well. It is best to bring your own outfit, you can buy, rent, borrow items for your photoshoot. But we also have you covered with our growing wardrobe of cocktail dresses and evening gowns up to XXL size.
After The Photo Shoot
The images are an optional purchase entirely up to you. You will see your images at a scheduled reveal meeting within 2 weeks after your photo shoot.
We do printed reveal, meaning I select the best 25-30 images from the session, edit them with magazine quality, print them and display them in matted paper frames. You can decide on what to purchase and take away the chosen print at the meeting.
The print is what really makes a photo comes to life. And I use high end art paper which is usually not available to consumer market, to make sure that the photos last 50-100 years depends on preservation conditions.
I also offer wall enlargement up to A2 size. And can create wall galleries for your home either in canvas or in frames.
