My modern glamour shots will help you feel like a model for the day with professional hair, makeup, posing guidance, & so much more. This incredible experience involves learning who you are: What makes you tick, what you love, and what makes you feel beautiful - and then, capturing that on my camera. Having amazing images will give you something tangible to look back on for the rest of your life so that you'll always remember how beautiful you are. Whether you are booking glamour shots to recreate not-so-great bridal portraits, or to celebrate motherhood, or just because you want to get glammed up (and not wear lingerie), I look forward to making you look and feel your very best through this amazing experience!
After you book a session, I'll email you a questionnaire so I can learn more about how you've always dreamt of being photographed.

During the wardrobe styling phase, I'll send you my shopping guide full of outfit ideas and you can text or email photos of items you're considering for additional help.
The day of your shoot, one of my amazing licensed artists will do your hair and makeup.

You won't have to worry about how to pose. As a former model, I used to teach at a modeling school. I will show you exactly what to do & offer a "monkey see, monkey do" approach to posing.
By request, sessions can include a 30 second behind the scenes video filmed at no additional cost, though there is a cost if you want it on DVD.
About 1 week after your shoot, I'll show you your images & you'll select the ones you want to buy. They'll then be retouched & you'll get your order 2-3 weeks later. Rush processing is available at additional cost.
We love helping women see their beauty! Hover over the images to see the amazing transformations we are honored to have been a part of!
I still cry every time I watch the video from my shoot. I will never forget how I felt that day and how exhilarating it was. It was very eye opening for me as it showed me that I AM BEAUTIFUL! Since the shoot, I've continued to love myself for who I am and haven't allowed anyone the privilege of making me doubt my self worth. I've continued to focus on my health & in 2 years I've lost a total of 86 pounds. To any women out there who think they can’t do this because they're not thin enough or have no idea how to pose, I'm here to tell you to go for it. Candace is an awesome person, a phenomenal photographer, & she'll help you every step of the way! Thank you again Candace, you have made an extraordinary impact in my life & I'm forever thankful!

IT'S BEEN 2 YEARS
The whole process doing glamour photos with Beautiful You Studios was amazing. It felt like a wedding day because of the excitement leading up to the shoot and going to the salon & getting my hair & makeup done. As we did the shoot, every single person we passed by told me how beautiful I looked & that made me feel like a model. I’ve always had this dream of being a plus-sized model since I was in 8th grade and I felt like my dream came true. Candace knows what she’s doing & takes really good care to make sure every single photo is perfect! I’m so inspired by how hard she works to please her customers and make sure they feel beautiful! l could go on and on and on and on…

begins the moment
I remember my first photoshoot; the photographer just told me, "Go stand over there," then never gave any direction after that. I felt really awkward & as a result, there were only 1 out of 100+ photos that I liked. This is NOT how I work. I direct you all the way down to your fingertips. Even if you've never done something like this before, you don't need to worry with a modeling coach (I used to model) by your side! Additionally, you won't have to wait until your viewing to see how beautiful you are as I will show you the back of my camera during the shoot. A lot of photographers don't want you to see un-retouched photos, but I believe that showing them during the shoot helps women become more comfortable in their own skin based on my own experiences in front of the camera. Gradually, as I show you great picture after great picture, your confidence will increase which will lead to the dreamy photos you've always wanted. Most of my clients end up wanting ALL of the photos that I take. :)
Q: I've never done something like this before & have no idea how to pose...will my pictures turn out ok?
While it's common to do a shoot for a significant other, that doesn't have to be YOUR reason. A glamour shoot is about connecting with your own beauty. It's one of the greatest investments you can make for your self-esteem. It's like a therapy session & confidence boost in one. The best part is that you can look back at the photos again & again for years to come if you ever need to be reminded of just how beautiful you are. Do it for YOURSELF, yo! :)
q: i don't have anyone special to give the pictures to. Is it REALLY WORTH IT?
Don't worry, I do wardrobe consultations! After you book your session with me, I'll email you my Style Guide which includes ideas for what to wear. If you need advice, you'll have my personal cell phone at your disposal to text photos of items you're considering during business hours.
Q: i have no idea what to wear...HELP!
My goal is to help you feel beautiful in your own skin. That being said, everyone wants to feel like they stepped out of a magazine & delivering a polished image is part of that feeling. So yes, I do minor retouching in Photoshop. I will polish your natural beauty in the most natural way possible so that you still look like you. However, it's against my morals to do drastic retouching. Examples of drastic retouching include completely removing all wrinkles from a 50 year old to make her look 20, or taking a size 12 & slimming her to a size 2. If that's what you're looking for, I'm not the photographer for you. :)
Q: I HAVE ACNE, ROLLS, DARK CIRCLES UNDER MY EYES, WRINKLES, ETC. WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP ALL THAT?
Q: EVERYONE ON YOUR WEBSITE LOOKS SO YOUNG...AM I TOO OLD FOR THIS?
While I've done my best to represent women of all sizes & colors, I seem to have trouble convincing more mature women to book a glamour session. I just want you to know, glamour shots are for EVERYONE, no matter your age!! If you've never felt beautiful, it's never too late, you are never too old, to treat yourself to an experience like this. Please don't let the lack of mature women on my website deter you from being the brave one. Beauty is found at ALL stages of life. Let me help you see beautiful YOU!
Q: I WANT TO DO MY OWN HAIR & MAKEUP...IS THERE A DISCOUNT?
I'm hoping you'll book my team & I for the full experience. However, I understand that you might have reasons for doing your own hair & makeup. While there are no discounts for doing so, you're welcome to it, just let me know when you book that you won't be using my artist so I can be sure not to schedule her.
Q: DO YOU OFFER SHOOTS OUTSIDE OF DALLAS?
YES! I LOVE to travel & usually plan a trip to at least one city outside of Dallas per year to photograph new clients. Current destination shoot goals include LA, Vegas, Ireland, & Greece. I'm also willing to come to you anywhere in the US at no additional cost if you + at least 2 friends pre-pay for collections. Or, I'll go anywhere in the world just for you if you cover my flight, hotel, & pre-pay for a collection. Contact me for more info!
