Our promise to you is a fun and luxurious experience with the most beautiful photos you have ever seen of yourself. Our talented team will style your hair and makeup so you look as good as you feel.

What We Offer
This is for you to learn more about the process. But, more importantly, for us to get to know you and understand the vision you have for your session.
As part of your consultation we’ll talk about your personal brand and we’ll help you choose the outfits from your closet that will show the best at your portrait photography session.
The day of your photoshoot, you simply show up. One of our hair stylists will give shape and add volume to your beautiful tresses.
Whether you decide to come with some makeup on or with a fresh face, our professional makeup artists will ensure your makeup is photo-ready. We’ll even add some eyelashes as well.

Senior & Grads
The end of school is not the end of life. It’s the beginning of something new. Together, let’s dream what the future holds for you. Senior portrait sessions include several outfit changes that allow them to express their personality and interests.

What People are Saying
“It definitely wasn’t your run-of-the-mill headshot experience! A business image is too important to be satisfied with average results. What I ended up with was extraordinary.”
“I Felt like a celebrity”
“I felt like a celebrity getting my hair and makeup done professionally. Saray is a fabulous photographer. I have never received so many compliments from friends and family!”
“Talented & Knowledgeable about Branding”
“Saray has an eye for detail like no other photographer! She is not only talented but she is very professional and knowledgeable about branding, marketing and business!”
“After going through a divorce, menopause, bankruptcy, I felt wiped out, haggard. A part of me felt old and used up. The day of the shoot I felt like a princess. But when I saw what Saray pulled out of me. I wept. Thank you Saray. If pictures can heal, yours did“
