A beauty session with Stephanie Toland Photography is an empowering experience meant to help you celebrate your individuality and femininity. At the studio, your portrait photography session will be styled like a fashion shoot to make you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself. Lighting, sets and backgrounds are kept simple and elegant to keep the focus on you. Your beauty photoshoot is never rushed; I take the time to coach you throughout the session to ensure you feel comfortable and confident.


My mission is simple: create a collection of wall-worthy images that you love. My goal is to create stunning works of art that capture your beauty, tell your story, and celebrate you. My style is fresh, bold and beautiful. I gravitate toward eye-catching black and white images, clean lines and neutral colors. I keep it simple so that you can look back and enjoy these photos for a lifetime.


Every beauty session is tailored specifically to you. We’ll discuss posting, lighting, wardrobe and styling ideas to make sure I turn your vision into reality. Once you book a session, you’ll receive a detailed prep guide to help you gear up for your photoshoot. Visit my beauty portfolio for additional inspiration.


What should you wear? Your prep guide will provide you with ideas of what to choose for your beauty session. Whether it’s jeans, a leather jacket, a little black dress or another favorite outfit, I’ll help you select the clothes that best complement you.


I include professional photo retouching with your session. I focus on a natural edit, to create beautiful images that celebrate your individuality. I will edit out blemishes and minor imperfections but keep you looking like you. You probably won't even be able to tell what I've done — instead, you’ll be awed at how beautiful you are!


Once you’ve chosen your favorite images, I’ll help you decide how to display them. You can choose from metal wall art, high-quality prints, lay flat albums and heirloom portfolio boxes. You’ll find more details about products at my pricing and products page.
