Yes you - You're beautiful! Maybe you've always known that, or maybe somewhere along the way you looked in the mirror & forgot. But you are beautiful. Believe it or not, none of the girls you see on our website are professional models. Many of them had never done a photo shoot before & walked into our studio nervous. Each however, left with her head held high, knowing that she's beautiful. We want you to see that too!
What makes us different than other studios? Wardrobe consulting. Tons of location options. Behind the scenes videos. Pose coaching from a former model. Photography from some who's been published in over 20 fashion magazines & is ranked one of the top 25 teen photographers in America. We take on a limited number of clients per year, so don't delay on booking the experience of a lifetime for yourself today. You deserve it!
Hey there! My name is Candace Perry & I'm the photographer behind Beautiful You Studios! Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved pouring over fashion magazines & have always had the desire to create them. I took writing & graphic design courses in college & then pursued ad design. Eventually, I picked up a camera, fell into senior photography, and the rest was history! I know first-hand what a professional photo shoot can do for someone, having grown up being bullied for being a nerd & not feeling beautiful until after I had a shoot in my late 20s. I believe that EVERY woman should feel beautiful at least once in her life, so I created Beautiful You Studios. Helping teens feel beautiful through senior portraits is what I believe God put me on this earth to do, and I’d absolutely LOVE to have the honor of photographing beautiful YOU!!

After you book a session, we'll email you a questionnaire so we can learn more about how you've always dreamt of being photographed.
During the wardrobe styling phase, we will send you our shopping guide full of outfit ideas & you can text or email us photos for additional help.
We have a studio available, but you DON'T have to shoot there if you want a different background than everyone else. Upon request, we can customize your shoot location. Options include outdoors, AirBnbs, hotels, & more which allows you the freedom to truly customize your experience!
The day of your shoot, one of our amazing licensed artists will do your hair & makeup.
You don't have to worry how to pose; as a former model I'm fully equipped to show you exactly what to do during your guided shoot!
If you like, you can add on a behind the scenes video to your session so that you can remember everything you felt during the day & experience it again & again for years to come. Ask us for pricing details.
About a week after your shoot, you'll meet up with us again to review your images and select the ones you want to buy.
After receiving blah photos from another photographer, I hired Candace & I couldn’t be more pleased. The pictures are fantastic, professional, and capture Jordan's youth and beauty perfectly. From the makeup artist, to the location, to the photos, the follow-up, everything, Candace does a Class-A job. She has a true skill with photography, light, color, location, timing, pose, everything. She made the experience a bright and beautiful day in our memories that we can experience again and again through the photos. Job well done!

WOW! Candace was so lovely and kind. I had an absolute blast and I loved every photograph. The photographs look so professional yet capture real live moments in action! These were some of the best photos I've ever had done - and I've been in Seventeen Magazine. She really does an amazing job and makes sure you're comfortable at all times when taking pictures. Would highly recommend!! :)

Working with Beautiful You Studios was an amazing experience. Candace & her team really worked with us through the whole process, picking out clothes, picking out locations...she really took the time to get to know Kaleigh, to really learn about her personality & what makes Kaleigh so beautifully unique. We are so blessed to have worked with Candace & her team. They were so professional & made Kaleigh feel so beautiful. I really would not work with anyone else through this whole process. If you’re looking for a senior photographer for your daughter, I would highly, highly recommend Candace & her team!

I will admit that I have self-confidence issues, I never think I look good in photos. But Candace made both my boyfriend and I feel like models during my prom pictures. My boyfriend is not a fan of photos in general but he LOVED them! He was comfortable and did not complain at all! This is my third prom photography session and all three of them were with different photographers. Candace was my number one favorite and I would go to her again for another session. These are the BEST prom pictures I have now!!

Years ago, I never would've done something like this, ever. I gagged at even the thought of makeup. Same for dresses. And pictures? Well, they had me running for the hills. I felt like I wasn't what pictures, nice clothes, and nice make up were worth. I felt disgusted with myself and it seemed like nothing would ever change. But yet, here I am feeling the complete opposite of whoever I was years ago. I have come to terms with who I am. And I love this me. I feel okay with this me. I AM okay with this me. I AM okay with my body & everything about me. I AM confident in me, myself, & I, and I would never change anything because who else do I have to be other than me? Thank you Beautiful You Studios for helping me to break through my shell and giving me the confidence I have always needed and wanted. Thank you so much.
