I BECAME A PHOTOGRAPHER OVER 14 YEARS AGO

Growing up, I was bullied for my freckles, buck teeth, four eyes, & chicken legs. It wasn’t until I had a makeover shoot in my late 20s that I realized that I was beautiful & got into modeling. I've now been in FRONT of the camera over 50x...you can still see my face in ROSS stores around the world today!!

I launched this business in 2010 to help others have the same transformative experience. Since then, I’ve won several awards for my work including being voted into the Top 10% of portrait photographers worldwide during Shoot & Share's photography contest in 2019.

I take pride in my ability to help even the most camera-shy woman light up in front of the camera & can’t wait to photograph beautiful YOU! 

I'm Candace Perry, a Beauty, Boudoir, & Brand Photographer based in Dallas, Texas

HELLO, BEAUTIFUL!

WORRIED ABOUT HOW TO POSE? DON'T BE - I'LL SHOW YOU WHAT TO DO

While most photographers provide little to no direction other than telling you where to sit, stand, or lay, I'll coach you on exactly what to do with your hands & even your facial expressions.

As a model, I've been in front of 50+ other photographers' cameras which means I have learned that most photographers don't tell you anything besides "go stand over there." The rest leave you to pose yourself (see examples below). If you don't have a modeling background too, you will be lost. 

With me however, you get someone who utilizes her modeling background to direct every square inch of your body + your facial expressions. I'll even show the back of my camera the entire shoot to make sure we're getting images you love.

Afterwards, you'll have photos so beautiful you'll hardly recognize yourself. Your largest complaint will be that there are too many great images to choose from. Don't believe me? Watch my nearly 100 video reviews.

(some of my modeling portfolio; note the wide variety of poses, facial expressions, & moods! I will teach you how to do this too.)

My real life ugly duckling story

HOW I GOT HERE

I WAS BULLIED BY MY PEERS & MY CRUSH SAID I WAS UGLY

When I was 8, I was bullied by my peers who made fun of my buck teeth, four eyes, frizzy hair, chicken legs, & my crush at the time told a friend he stared at me because I was so ugly.

PRESENT DAY

I had a makeover shoot that changed my life

I believed I was ugly for years & it wasn't until I had a makeover followed by a professional photoshoot when I was 28 (pictured above) that I realized I was beautiful for the first time in my life. I eventually got into modeling.

I LAUNCHED BEAUTIFUL YOU STUDIOS

After realizing how empowering a makeover shoot can be, I launched Beautiful You Studios to empower everyday women through boudoir photography. In 2024, we added beauty & brand photography to encompass the whole woman.

I'VE CHANGED THE LIVES OF HUNDREDS OF WOMEN

I’ve had my work published & have won several photography awards. My greatest pride & joy however is hearing clients like Danielle above say that doing a session with me is better than multiple years of therapy on self-esteem.
