My Passion as a Portrait Photographer, by Phoenix Fine Art Photographer

April 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I am a portrait photographer and our private studio is located in Central Phoenix. Although I photograph anyone, my passion is for photographing women who are grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, all women who are behind the camera instead of in front of it, as well as women in my own age and phase of life in our 40’s and 50’s, because I understand our unique challenges and issues we face in this unique phase of life that make us pensive about having portraits of ourselves.  Phoenix & Scottsdale fine art glamour portraits with a gorgeous african american womanPhoenix & Scottsdale fine art glamour portraits with a gorgeous african american womanDestiny rocked her looks in her glamour portrait session that included basic headshots for modeling, personal branding, glamour, boudoir, some fun and flirty, sensual and intimate, serious and serene!

Many women have told me it feels vain or arrogant to have images of ourselves, or we’re just not ready. Then, time passes, years go by, and we have no images of ourselves. We don’t really know what we look like. We become absent in our own history to ourselves and to our family and to our future generations.

 Have you ever looked for photographs of that lovely woman in you life and there are few or no images, or as much as a 40-50 years gap between properly done beautiful portraits, and how frustrating and sad you felt about that?  We do this for ourselves, for our family, for forever. 

So, because having portraits done is an important investment of time, money, and emotions, we at the studio want to make it fun and easy and safe for you.  We offer a boutique luxury magazine-style portrait experience that begins with an invitation to a complimentary consultation in your home, via Skype, or at our studio where I can learn as much as I can about you and the ways you’d love to be photographed. We’ll talk about all the ways you can be represented; a business headshot, the casual fun and flirty side of you, to the more glamorous, sensual side, or go for a boudoir, lingerie or fantasy fine-art type of image for yourself (because you know you want to) or as a special gift for your partner. Then we’ll style your wardrobe and accessories between what you have, what is in my studio wardrobe, or we’ll go shopping, to reflect those images you want to have created and crafted. The hardest part is over. 

So. With the information we gathered in consult, I’ll design and craft your session just for you. 

On the day of your session, you’ll be invited to my studio to be pampered with in-studio hair and makeup styling by my professional stylist. Then, we’ll review some posing basics together before we have fun in front of the camera. I want you to be able to relax and have fun so that I can capture the best images of who you are, I will guide you every step of the way down to your expression in your eyes.

After I have retouched your images, you will be invited back to my studio for your ordering appointment to see a movie of your day in the studio and prints of all your images in a folio box collection and you are welcome to purchase all of the images that you love and take them with you, as well as order any wall art you’d love to have. 

I sincerely desire you to love photographs of yourself that you are proud to display for yourself, for your business presence, for your family, for the generations to come who will someday look for beautiful images of you. Call me to schedule a complimentary consultation to design those special portraits you will love!

My private boutique studio is located in the Historic Arts District in downtown Phoenix and serves Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, and the greater Phoenix Valley where I specialize in the Sue Bryce style of contemporary portraiture. By appointment only.  Call 602-616-4582 to schedule your complimentary consultation or connect with me HERE.
