Portrait Sessions

Your Portrait Session

Who are you? How would you describe yourself? They say “a picture says a thousand words”, and that is the goal at Dawn M. Wayand Photography, to show you you are – the “real” you – not the “posed” you, what you are about, your passions and your dreams through timeless pictures. 


Studio sessions take place in Dawn’s Midtown studio or at an indoor location in Manhattan* and outdoor sessions take place anywhere in the 5 Boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island; as well as other locations in New York**.


A portrait session typically includes the following steps – before, during AND after the shoot:

  • A questionnaire and interview to determine what might work best for her client’s image staging,
  • A vision creation/mood board for her client’s photo session,
  • Wardrobe recommendations,
  • Location scouting,
  • A hair/makeup artist and assisting team on the day of the photo shoot,
  • Up to 3 wardrobe changes – time permitting – to obtain a variety of looks for her client for digital or print production,
  • Retouching of up to 10 images from the shoot at no additional charge*, and
  • Portrait printing consultation and services.

Don’t show what the world should see, show who you are. Contact Dawn to schedule your portrait session today!
