I WANT THIS

BOOK MY SHOOT

We do photo sessions at our studio located in Stonington, CT.

I'm on a mission to create stunning portraits of
40 women over the age of 40 (and beyond!)

I HAVE BEEN DREAMING OF A PROJECT THE COMBINES WOMEN's PORTRAITS WITH THEIR STORIES & WISDOM.

We Can...

Show that beauty doesn't diminish with age.

Highlight your character, stories, and spirit.

Tell your story and what it means to be a true bad ass woman in today's world.

Celebrate your beauty and appreciate every scar, line, and grey (or purple!) hair, and how that has made you stronger.

Even if you feel looked over, empowered, or anywhere in between, know that you are welcomed and needed in this world (and I want YOU!). We intend to disrupt and transform the way we are viewed (and let's be honest, often forgotten...) in today's media and the world at large. I have a vision to put your beautiful, authentic, and REAL stories out there to be heard and shared - because it IS important and needs to be seen.

Why Now?

ready for an adventure?

I believe in the matriarchy. I started my portrait and boudoir studio to celebrate and empower women - of all shapes, ages, and levels of confidence. I turned 42 this year and I want to do my part to help the societal perception on aging as a woman today. I want to create something very special as a gift to yourself and everyone around you to enjoy.

It will be fun, fulfilling, and transformational - I promise. The revolution is within you ... and I want to bring it out!

Who can do this?

We're aiming to photograph a wide variety of women.

You're ready to be noticed and embrace the things that make you different. All shapes and sizes, different backgrounds and different views on life are ALL welcome.

You want to feel beautiful, sexy, and seen.

You love a custom tailored experience designed around YOU. A luxurious adventure awaits with an exciting day of pampering and photos.

You have a vision of your legacy. Our passion is to take the every-day woman and give her an unforgettable celebrity-style, editorial magazine-like photoshoot experience... all catered to your vision of yourself.

You know this is beyond a pretty photo. We want you to truly connect with yourself, see your beauty, and embrace the vivacious spirit that others already see inside you.

You will also get picture perfect hair with with our stylist. We get you looking like the glammed up doll or neutral refined look that goes along with your vision. It's all up to you! 

Prep

After booking, Carrie will be in touch to design your shoot with you! She loves to talk about the look, feelings, and emotions you want conveyed in the shoot based off your personality and style.

After that, we hook you up with our Stylist on Zoom to refine and talk about your five wardrobe looks. We will give you a list of what to bring and make you feel like a queen the whole day.

WHAT IF I AM NOT PHOTOGENIC? 

< BACK

Well the great news is - photogenic is a skill that can be learned! And I’m the ultimate coach - in fact, it’s my super power. I’ll find your best angles and coach you into them. How to hold your head, shoulders, hands, everything down to your expression. No need to worry about your pose/body position - I got you!

WHAT IF I GAINED WEIGHT? 

< BACK

Listen, I get it. You are uncomfortable in your body. Often our weight is a roller coaster throughout our lives. I know exactly what that is like, having gone through it myself. So what we are really talking about here is the negative self voice that comes up telling you that you are not worthy because you’ve gained weight. Well, if some extra pounds is where you’re at right now, then that’s just what it is. How long have you been avoiding the camera because of it? Time to put your foot down and stand in your value, at this age, at this stage, at this weight. You are beautiful just the way you are, and your weight is the least interesting thing about you.

HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO SPEND?

< BACK

The photo shoot experience starts at $1500+tax. Included in every portrait session experience is a custom session design, wardrobe guide + consultation, the fully guided photo shoot with Carrie, professional hair and makeup, the Photo Premiere viewing and ordering appointment, and signature retouching on images purchased.

We have thoughtfully put together image collections and wall art displays based on the most frequent client purchases. We have a variety of first class products including matted print collections, albums, and wall art (framed prints, canvases, etc), and each photo chosen gets its corresponding digital file. Though the spending range is vast, the average client tends to spend in the $3-5K range for their session and the photo products they desire. Some spend more, some spend less, but all end up loving more photos than they thought possible. We also offer book in package specials that can be chosen at the time of booking.


CAN I BRING SOMEONE TO MY PHOTO SHOOT? 

< BACK

For this project it's about you, you, and YOU. So we will not be accepting additional faces for this. You can contact me to schedule a separate shoot with your loved ones

HOW LONG IS THE SHOOT AND WHERE WILL IT BE DONE? 

< BACK

Photo shoots are up to 3 hours and take place at my studio in Stonington, Connecticut. We shoot Approx 10:30 AM -1:30 PM  on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

THE WOMEN ON YOUR WEBSITE THEY JUST CAME OUT OF THE PAGES OF A MAGAZINE. I DON’T LOOK LIKE THAT ...
CAN I REALLY DO THIS?

< BACK

Well, first of all, THANK YOU! I take that as a compliment of the highest regard. Because magazine style portraits for every day women and men are what we do! So know that these women are not models; but look like that because we give them the celebrity red carpet experience and guide them through every step of the process. As in, want to know what to wear that will look the most flattering? We have wardrobe guidelines AND a wardrobe consultation - we even have a studio wardrobe for you to dip into if you are looking for something a bit more glam. Want to look your best on set? We have a professional hair and makeup artist to get you done up and even change up looks during your session. Want to absolutely love how you look in your photos with the most flattering angles? Well, I got you on that, too. Your photo shoot is fully guided, meaning, I am going to coach you into the poses that are most flattering for you. Don’t want to look posed? Cool, because the word pose simply indicates the position that your body is and not a stiff hold of the body. Everybody has a different best angle, and I’m able to find yours.

Can I buy just the digital images?

< BACK

Each photograph that is purchased gets its corresponding digital file, so you do get the digital! We believe in a printed legacy and that photographs are meant to be up on walls, in albums, and out for your enjoyment - this is very much our ‘why.’ If you opt to forgo the print that is included with the purchase, however, the price remains the same.

WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT IS ACCEPTED?

< BACK

All major credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover) and cash. Checks are not accepted.

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?

< BACK

We do our photo sessions at our studio located in Stonington, CT.

F.A.Q

Still Have Questions?

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS? CONTACT ME

Meet Carrie

Why does this matter to me?

Personal growth is my highest value, and being surrounded by kick ass women who value themselves is my idea of a better world. I'm here to flip the script on the perception of women as we age & to celebrate the women who are standing in their 40+ power. These women are UNAPOLOGETIC for being themselves, and we need MORE OF THAT.
