The Coaching Experience 
Self Love and Self Confidence. Reconnection with your true beauty. Beautiful images that you will be proud to use on your social media and marketing will encourage you to engage more on and off the line which will increase your bottom line. We start with an on-set Beauty Session with a Professional Hair and Makeup Artist. It is important to look like yourself, but a more polished perfect you and this will only enhance your style.
Why do we include hair and makeup in every shoot that we do?
The trained eye sees the unique beauty and potential in each face and adjusts for the different factors affecting your appearance. Makeup artists are trained in the science of color and makeup application. Applying makeup that will be photographed is MUCH different from applying makeup for day-to-day wear. Photographs reduce your appearance to a two-dimensional view and it takes training to shade, contour, and highlight a face subtly and correctly.
The Looks
Although the photo shoot is about YOU, not your clothing, the clothes you wear represent a part of who you are and how you feel. And not every outfit fits the multiple roles that you have in your life. We suggest that you bring 5-6 looks that we can play with and capture you in to address the different uses of the photos. You may want a professional photo for social media, or for your marketing material yet a different look for a dating website or more personal use. We will narrow wardrobe selection down to 3 outfits or as many as we can fit in during your session. And I always suggest to bring that special something that you have in your closet that you never get to wear but you feel like a million bucks in and you walk away with a complete “Photo Wardrobe”. If you need guidance in selecting your clothing and accessories we have a curated list of Personal Stylists that have extended special rates to our clients and we are happy to make that connection.

Here is an example of why different outfits create a different look for your various needs.
The Shoot
As a photographer who specializes in photographing women, it isn’t about getting the 1 photo for social media, but rather capturing your true spirit and beauty. In each look, you will be posed around the studio with many different backgrounds in free-flow fashion. What makes me different from other photographers is that I study how to pose women. How to form a women’s body to accentuate the positive. It is a relaxed atmosphere and I know you will be relaxed and have fun!

The best photographer I have ever met. Alyssa makes you feel comfortable and goes beyond expectations. She even brought over some clothes that she thought would be nice in the photo. She brings her own fabulous makeup artists too. I never felt so pampered and relaxed. My photos turned out beautifully but most important, they did not look airbrushed and boring. She spends the time needed to get the right shots. I think Alyssa is so talented and I have recommended her to many others. Thank you Alyssa!

I met Alyssa at a networking event at a time when I happened to need new headshots. I was impressed with her work and asked her to do them. What can I say? They are absolutely fabulous. You can see one on my own LinkedIn profile. She made the process so much fun, knew how to get me to relax and enjoy myself and it really shows. She’s great.

I can’t say enough good things about Alyssa. I saw the before and after pictures of Alyssa’s clients and I was blown away. I had to book her for my own pictures. She is an amazing person. She made me feel totally comfortable in front of a camera (and this is coming from someone who hates taking pictures). The pictures came out beyond my expectations. I love my pictures. I highly recommend Alyssa and her services. No one will ever be disappointed.

I highly recommend Alyssa. She is a gifted professional, passionate and excellent at photography. Relax is not part of my vocabulary, but she was able to get me to relax and capture great pictures! And then
she made magic!

I’ve recently had the good fortune to work with Alyssa on new professional photos. She was wonderful – fun to work with, technically adept, and able to find beauty in me that I didn’t see me. She captured “me” in a way that I’m delighted to share with connections, prospects, and clients. I would recommend her to anyone – but particularly to women “of a certain age” who..need to be reminded how beautiful we are!
