I see the tired mommy.
I see the overworked woman business owner.
I see the uncertain newly divorced, on your knees, lady.
I see the woman that needs a boost to her self-worth.
You don’t have to be a model to feel and look like one… You deserve to feel pampered, beautiful, and empowered.
Portrait Couture sessions start with your desire to feel empowered and seen. We see you!
A team of beauty artists and a seasoned photographer with 20 years of experience will guide your transformation from the outside in.
These luxury portrait experiences will inspire you to feel proud of the woman you are.
We see you…
Step 1: Discover
Schedule a Discovery call.
This call is required before we book you in for these luxury sessions. This is where we have some "girl talk" about what inspired your desire for a session. We also talk all the details about wardrobe, hair, makeup, and more.
If you wish to experience a Portrait Couture session, I will book you in during this call. The $199 retainer* is due to reserve your session. The retainer includes professional makeup artist, hair stylist, dress rental, photoshoot, and reveal session.
Step 2: Photoshoot
Your session day begins with a warm welcome!
You'll get settled in for an hour of pampering with Michele (our makeup artist) and Danielle (our hair artist).
Once your hair and makeup is done by professional stylists (including Michele featured in this very email), you'll revel in adorning yourself in a beautiful dress to have Vanity Fair type portraits created by a professional photographer trained by National Geographic photographers.
Bask in your beauty while Dawn creates custom photographs of you.
Added bonus: Your well-behaved dog can also be part of these portraits by selecting a Beauty and the Beast Portrait Couture session - have your dog wear a fancy collar if they have one!
We will have light refreshments your enjoyment throughout your session.
Step 3: Reveal
At your in-person reveal session with Dawn (at her studio) a few weeks after you photoshoot you will return to see your photographs where you can select your favorite images.
Remember, these sessions are luxurious and designed to enable any woman to feel beautiful and empowered.
“Dawn’s Portrait Couture experience was like nothing I’ve ever encountered before.
She goes out of her way to artfully and genuinely create a personalized uplifting and empowering experience.
Although I have never posed alone for a photographer, she made it feel comfortable, exciting and so much fun!
As a mom of two young kids, it’s been a long time since I’ve felt beautiful or like I am my own person.
The photos were absolutely stunning and the experience itself was like a treat for the soul!”
