Portrait Experiences

Michelle Hayes Studio Albuquerque Portrait

It's not just a photoshoot, it's a portrait experience

Experiencing a photo shoot isn't just about pretty pictures. It's about finally having a chance to feel confident in your own beauty. It's about taking that confidence and showing up to the world in an empowering way that is without apologies and shame. 

If you are in need of just feeling good about yourself this is the experience for you!

Whether it's through a Boudoir, Little Black dress, or one of my Dream Shoots, every woman deserves to own a beautiful image of herself.

Let's design a shoot that's uniquely you so you'll have an experience you'll never forget. You deserve to have beautiful images and a fun and confidence-boosting time while in the shoot. This experience will change the way you look at yourself!

the Boudoir experience

Boudoir is for EVERY woman!

You don't need to be a perfect size 4 to have a fun and empowering session. This type of shoot is for the everyday woman who wants to fee beautiful in her own skin and in her own unique way.

This means we design the session for YOUR personality. You don't even have to wear lingerie. There are MANY things you can wear for your boudoir session to make you feel and look beautiful.

the Little Black Dress session

Every woman deserves a beautiful portrait of herself wearing something she absolutely feels beautiful in. And ladies don't we all have that Little Black dress that we feel oh so good in?.

I want to photograph you in that LBD looking and feeling like a million bucks. I know you have that one outfit you are dying to wear again but just haven’'t had the reason to.

It could literally be a black cocktail dress you’ve had for years, or black leather pants you found in Italy, or a black corset your husband bought you on your anniversary trip to Paris. Whatever makes you feel beautiful and sexy. That’s my definition of a LBD.

I want to capture that feeling so that you can have a beautiful portrait to gush over again and again to remind yourself of the amazing woman that you are.

THE dream shoot

Have your portrait session in the city of your dreams.

Imagine being in the electric and citing of NYC, or feeling the warm sand between your toes in sunny San Diego, or strolling the historic, yet chic, streets of the cit of lights, Paris.

Have a city in mind that just speaks to you and you haven't found a reason to visit yet? Well, here it is. We will collaborate to make it happen.

You will get to stay in a fabulous hotel, or apartment, so you can soak up the local energy of the city of choice. You will have an afternoon of shopping with me to help you find some outfits or extra pieces to bring an outfit together. 

We will shoot out on the streets, in studio, in your hotel room, or a combination of all three to capture all your looks that you are envisioning. Have you always wanted a picture looking fabulous in front of the Eiffel tower? We will make that happen!

  • pre-portrait session consultation to design your session. Done through skype or in person

  • 2 night stay at a hotel or apartment (pre-selected)

  • an afternoon of shopping and lunch/drinks
