hello there.

I’m Paula Luu,
YOUR portrait photographer 

I want to take a moment to share with you an experience that I believe every one of you should have at least once in your life: my signature session, a model-for-a-day portrait session. 

This isn't just a photo shoot. It's a pampering experience that celebrates the woman you have become. It's an opportunity to play dress-up, to feel beautiful and confident in your own skin, and to capture fleeting moments that will not wait.

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 woman you have become? A model-for-a-day 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 women 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 woman you are.

So, to all the women out there – I encourage you to take a moment to really celebrate yourself. Book a model-for-a-day portrait session with me and Paula N Luu photography glam squad and experience the pampering, confidence-boosting, and unforgettable joy that comes with it. You deserve it.

Paula is an alchemist of sorts...
 she doesn’t transform so much as reveal. That’s the magic of her artistry. 

She conveys the real you.
She lets the images speak for themselves.

Empowering women over the age of 40 to exist in professional photographed and style by the fashion designer, Chloe Dao.

"I'm Not Photogenic"

Photogenic is just COMFORTABILITY in front of the camera which is completely MY responsibility.  I will guide you and take the pressure off of you so that you can just focus on having fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

"I Need To Lose A Few Pounds"

So many of my clients feel this way.  Not only do I guide you, but, I will pose you, artistically light you and capture you at the most flattering angles.  Those few pounds will not make a difference, TRUST me.

"I'm Too Old"

Whether you're having a portrait session with your loved ones or empowering yourself with a session for you, EVERYBODY deserves an experience like this at least once in their life.   One day, your loved ones will look for photos of you, what will they find? 

Plus check out my Fabulously 40 over 40 project. I photographed 40 women over the age of 40. Yes, I they were women at 50, 61, 70 and even 87. Age is just a number.

"Do I Have To Have A Makeover?"

The makeover is a great start to calm the nerves and enjoy some PAMPERING.  Whether your goal is to just enhance or to bring on the glam, you're in excellent care with my carefully selected stylists.  However, I also love to photograph women naturally with no makeup as well.  It's completely up to you

"What Products Do You Offer?"

I offer framed, acrylic, metal wall art prints in various sizes, beautiful custom albums and two types of photography folio boxes that hold matted prints.  During your consultation you will be able to see these LUXURIOUS products in person.

"Will you photoshop or retouch my images?"

Absolutely, each of your beautiful portraits will be given Paula’s Signature Retouch. This high end retouching is a luxury art form that adds the same polish to your portraits that you’d see on the pages of Vogue. We retouch gently to preserve a natural look while enhancing your beauty in remarkable ways. 

Who Can I Bring With Me?"

You're welcome to bring anyone with you to get photographed. Whether you enjoy a portrait session for yourself or maximize and have loved ones join for a portion of your portrait session, we CUSTOMIZE your experience for you. 

What are the payment options?

At PNL we understand that professional photography is an investment that will last forever. We work with clients of all different budgets.  We accept credit cards and offer simple payment plans.  In order for you to take full advantage of the availability of the images and keepsakes we will be creating for you, we have developed a payment plan option. Our payment plan allows you to invest in portraits, albums and other keepsakes from your session in an affordable way without leaving any images or products behind.

In addition, there is no minimum purchase or hard sell.  We only want you to purchase portraits that you deem PRICELESS that you can not live without.

my favorite
store to shop

For formal and glam dresses, I like to shop at our Houston local fashion designer store, Chloe Dao Boutique. Follow by Hemline.
For modern, trendy or edgy pieces I like to shop at Zara.


personal branding

As a young singer/songwriter I didn't have the same big budget to produce my 6 different singles, but Paula was able to work with me and my budget. I was totally blown away by the result and felt like a celebrity.


8th grade graduated

Can’t say enough wonderful things about Paula. She’s known the kids since they were babies and I really think she captured all of them (and us too) beautifully!
