What is professional portrait?
Why do you need it?
This isn't just a photo shoot. It's an investment on you.
A beautiful portrait leaves you with something ineffable, a feeling that lasts in your heart, long after you’ve stopped looking. It’s my privilege to capture the true essence of you, —your complexities, your interests, your affections—in a crystalline moment that reveals your beauty: true, timeless, and uniquely you.
Think about it – when was the last time you took a moment to celebrate yourself? To celebrate the journey you've been on and the person you have become? A portrait session with me is the perfect way to do just that.
Perhaps you're celebrating a major milestone in your life – a graduation, a promotion, turning 40, 50 or a new chapter. Or maybe you just want to capture this moment in time, freeze it forever in a photograph that you can look back on with fondness and pride.
Whatever your reason, I urge you to consider booking a session with us here at Paula N Luu photography.
I have quite a knack of helping my clients feel at ease and confident in front of the camera. I will guide you through the process, helping you choose the perfect outfit, hair, and makeup to create a look that reflects the person you are.
petite, Asian, wife, PIANIST,fashionista, photographer,
It is not your job to be photogenic. It’s my job to know the angles, the lighting, the lenses, and the poses to best showcase you.
Often times I hear from clients, “I am not photogenic” or “…skinny enough” or “…creative enough.” It is not your job to be any of those things. My job is to make you look gorgeous and create an unforgettable experience for you. My goal is to turn you into the model that you have always dreamt up. So let me create a timeless and incredible experience for you.
Let's do this!
"I felt so special doing the photo shoot. Instead of letting age bring me down, I am embracing my elder years for who I am!"
Not only was it a super fun experience, but so empowering! You might feel like you’re not beautiful as you age, but Paula has a gift for finding the inner beauty in all of us and putting on display!
