Our mission is to help women exist in photos.
As women, we’re often the ones hiding behind the lens.
We don’t show up in photos because we've been told by society that we are not enough:
not thin enough
not tall enough
not young enough
n o t e n o u g h e n o u g h
YOU ARE ENOUGH. Just as you are. We will create beautiful portraits together that you are proud of. It doesn’t matter your shape, size, color or mindset. I will show you just how beautiful you are, at this exact moment in your life.
The boutique experience
Our time together will be like nothing you’ve experienced before.
Women tell me that they hate having their pictures taken. That they would rather have teeth pulled. That they are not photogenic. I hear you and understand that you may have had some unpleasant experiences around photos in the past. We have a consultation before you even book so we can get to know one another, laugh and cry and share. So we can connect. Once you book a session with me, we spend the following weeks fine tuning every detail of your session, from head to toe.
THE PORTRAIT SESSION
I carve out an entire morning or afternoon with you in my downtown Phoenix studio. When you arrive, you will be welcomed by me and a hair and makeup stylist. Not only will this time be spent making you feel your best, it’s an act of self-care that will prepare you to feel relaxed and confident for your photo shoot.
When it’s time to move into the photo studio, you and I will work together to ensure you’re feeling comfortable, confident and radiant.
That spirit is reflected beautifully in the portraits I create for you.
About two weeks after your portrait session, we will meet at the studio again so I can "reveal" your top portraits to you. You get to see your final portraits for the first time and fall in love with yourself all over again. You get to take home the portraits that you love.
WHAT TO WEAR
You are probably thinking, "what would I even wear?" Don't sweat it though! A few weeks before our session, you will work with a wardrobe stylist to pull your top outfits. She will help you choose your look and come up with wardrobe and jewelry combinations that you may have never thought about before! You are also welcome to wear anything from the Karianne Munstedt Portrait Closet!
