“I had the most amazing experience being photographed by Dana and her team. They made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera & I don't think I've ever felt so beautiful in my life! When I came in for my photo reveal, I actually had tears in my eyes to see how gorgeous the pictures were! My daughter Alex (who has also been photographed by Dana) recently became engaged & I immediately booked them to photograph her wedding. They are the only ones I would want with us on her special day.”

“It was such a warm & uplifting experience being photographed by Dana. She made me feel beautiful inside & out! I left my session feeling empowered to be my very best! She is a natural at bringing out the inner beauty in their clients.”

“Dana & her team have an amazing talent! Not only did they create a memorable experience for me & my daughter, they did it in a way that I was totally stress-free. Dana took care of everything & made us feel amazing. We did not have to worry about what to wear or how to get our hair & make-up done. My daughter is still talking about how fun the session was & how she loved feeling like a princess. Thank you Dana for making my daughter & I feel beautiful, along with creating these priceless portraits that we will forever treasure.”

Now that you’ve made your portrait selection, it’s time to start showing them off to your family & friends. Trust me, now that you have portraits of yourself that you truly love & make you feel beautiful from the inside out, you won’t be able to keep them a secret!

Enjoy your portraits

2-3 weeks after your session we will schedule a time for your portrait grand reveal! During your reveal session you will be able to order prints, albums and gifts. A minimum $500 order is required with all beauty portrait sessions. All purchased images are artfully retouched to accent your best features. 

05.

The Big Reveal

Now that you have your hair & makeup done & look absolutely AMAZING, it’s time for you to change into your first outfit for the day. Throughout your 2 hour in-studio photo session, I will guide and direct you into poses that showcase the very best you. This is your time to shine in front of the camera!

04.

Get Great Shots

On the day of your session, the expert stylists at ChezAnn will create a beautiful hair & makeup look for you. Our stylists are awesome! They know how to style for the camera along with knowing how to make you look amazing and feel comfortable. 

03.

Hair & Makeup

After the initial consultation, we’ll pick a session date together. To reserve your date, I require the session fee and signed contract. We will discuss outfits and backgrounds for your session. You will also receive a welcome packet with outfit styling ideas and beauty tips.

02.

Book & Make Plans

Every session begins with an initial in-person consultation so we can get to know one another. My studio or in the virtual world; I would love to meet you and talk about how you’d like to be photographed and if there is someone special you’d like to be photographed with. Initial consultations can be in-person or via FaceTime.

let's meet

Wondering how it’s all going to go down? Read on below for a quick overview of how our beauty portraiture service works. We take everything one step at a time so you can feel comfortable, confident, and look your absolute best. We start just by meeting one another and end with a beautiful gallery of heirloom images. 

I have been photographing beautiful women just like you for many years and can say with confidence that the best beauty portraits come from a team effort: a seasoned photographer working with a happy, comfortable client (that’s you!), expertly styled by a professional hair and makeup artist.

As a woman I totally understand where these feelings are coming from. We have been conditioned to think that we have to be a certain size to love the way we look. This notion is simply not true, you are beautiful just the way you are right now. Don't worry or stress on how you are going to look on camera, I got your back girl! I will strategically pose and light you in ways that will flatter you and your unique beauty. All ages, shapes and sizes can do this. This empowering Portrait Experience is designed to highlight & draw out your inner beauty.
