Being 'photogenic' is not a thing you are, it's a thing you learn! 
I can teach you ;) book a consultation with me!

Me, at my "50s-look" photoshoot

Hi, I am Désirée, passionate about photography and passionate about life.

 I believe that every person on this planet was created beautiful!  My mission is to discover that essence and capture it. I can not wait to create for you the best portraits of yourself that you have ever seen.


No one knows you better than yourself!
And sometimes, you wish others would see your brilliance.
To capture the inner radiance and confidence that defines you, I take you through a process that's as unique and individual as you are. 

Our journey begins with a conversation – a chance for us to get to know each other, to understand your vision, your personality, and your desires. We'll talk about you: your passions, your dreams, and how you want to be portrayed in your photographs. This is where the magic happens, as we delve into the depths of your inner beauty and bring it to light.


But it's not just about the destination; it's about the journey itself. And I'm here to make sure that journey is as enjoyable and empowering as possible. Together, we'll laugh, we'll share stories, and we'll create memories that will last a lifetime.

So if you're ready to embark on this transformative experience, I invite you to learn more about my process here. When you are ready, I invite you to join me on the RED CARPET and see yourself in a whole new light!

Your wardrobe is important. The outfits you wear for the photoshoot can be all your own, something borrowed from our studio collection, or a combination of both. We have gowns, business attire and costumes for the kid's storybook sessions.


We will design your wardrobe to fit with your style and preferences and your brand message in the case of a business session.


On the day of your photo shoot, relax while our pro hair and makeup artist gets you styled and camera-ready.


You will discuss your preferences and style with her. We want you to feel pampered, relaxed and confident. 


I coach you throughout your photoshoot.  You don't have to worry about knowing how to pose or even being "photogenic". With our expertise, we've got your back. You will feel like a model on set! 


You will review your photos and make your selections right after the session. 


Only purchase the images you love. Every image you buy also comes with a print or a variety of crops for business. 

Photo processing

The photos you select will be professionally retouched.

We aim for a magazine look without losing you or your personality. 


The fully retouched photos will be ready within 2 weeks. Your printed products will take a little longer depending on what you order.
