I’ve got a mole on my cheek. ?it’s part of me, part of my visual identity. ?I would never want to remove it in a portrait.

So that?s why we don?t assume anything or rely on retouching for your Modern Muse portraits. ?

Using flattering lighting, beautiful poses, having hair and makeup done professionally and creating a comfortable environment where you can be yourself, where you can find strength in your vulnerability – all that means we are doing as little as possible in post-production. ?

Photoshop is used sparingly – to make sure that you shine and sparkle. Or smolder. ?Retouching shouldn?t be noticeable. What should be visible and vibrant in your portraits is you.

Yes, I?ll take off the scrape on your knee, or any blemishes that show up the week of your session. ?Modern Muse isn?t about transforming you into an idealized body. It?s about celebrating who you are right now, celebrating your uniqueness and giving you the space to revel in your own magic. ?

Crooked smile? Adorable. ?Asymmetrical face? We all have them! ?Stretch marks? You earn tiger stripes.
