I specialize in fashion magazine style beauty portraits for women of all ages and high school seniors. It's my goal to make every woman and girl to feel beautiful and fearless.
Beautiful, Fearless, Woman.
As a woman in her 30's, I thought about how few photos I have of myself that weren't just on my wedding day. I decided that as women, we deserve to have beautiful pictures of ourselves, that live in physical form and not locked away on a phone or on a computer. It's time to have gorgeous photos of ourselves printed for all generations to love and cherish.
That's when Beautiful, Fearless, Woman was born.
Beautiful, Fearless, Woman is about ...
being confident at any age, showing off your grace & elegance and celebrating being a Woman!
Every Woman deserves to have beautiful photographs of themselves!
Same Day Transformations of Real
Beautiful, Fearless, Women
When was the last time you treated yourself to a day of luxury and pampering?
My name is Jamie Gladden.
I’m a modern portrait photographer in Austin, Texas.
I believe portraits should be an experience and a wonderful memory, not just a photo session. My GOAL is to capture your beautiful personality and essence, while giving you your dream picture experience. I want you to feel so beautiful in your pictures that you want to cry. Yes, cry - tears of joy that is!
You can expect that I will spend quality time with you before and after your session, giving you the photo session you deserve. Plus, it shows in the photographs when we genuinely connect. I want all the ladies I photograph to leave feeling confident and knowing their true value and worth. So if you crave an experience and want luxurious, one of a kind products, you’ve come to the right place.
Here are a few quirks about me:
I will always be a Baylor Bear at heart. Sic ’em! I graduated with a BA in Journalism and a minor in Photography.
I'm super shy, but genuinely care for people. My awkward yet quirky personality is my greatest quality.
I'm really funny, but sometimes I'm really funny five minutes after the conversation happened.
I am married to a wonderful man. He’s my warrior and makes me furniture. He's also a huge Star Wars fan.
I love sunflowers - and thankfully my amazing husband brings gorgeous ones all the time; and dark chocolate too!
Enjoy some super cute photos of me and my husband!
I want to take the best portrait of yourself you have ever seen! I'm serious! The BEST!
How to know if this portrait session is for you?
- Are you an independent woman, who is struggling to find time for herself and feel pretty? Are you tired of just having a string of mediocre selfies on your camera roll?
- Are you a mother who wants to have beautiful pictures of yourself, and a few of your children? Are you struggling to feel like yourself again after having a baby?
- Have you ever simply wanted a gorgeous image of yourself that captured not just your beauty but your essence, but felt vain or selfish for wanting this? Let me stop you right there! Pampering yourself is the true expression of loving yourself.
- Was the last time you had pictures of yourself at your wedding, or even your own high school senior portraits?
If you answered yes to any questions, then I can't wait to show you how you can be a Beautiful, Fearless, Woman.
Exist in photos for your loved ones!
The Fearless Session
The Fearless Session retainer fee is $450, + TX sales tax.
The Fearless Session retainer fee includes your photo session, professional hair and makeup, your in home wardrobe styling, and access to my fashion and accessories closet. Images and prints are sold separately. Each print contains a full resolution, full retouched digital image.
After your session, you will come back to my home studio for your Reveal Wall and Premiere Ordering Session, where I will help you select your favorite images and fine art product of choice. What you purchase is completely up to you, but it's my job to create portraits of you that are so beautiful you simply must have them all - hint hint - most people do love and purchase all of their images.
Every woman should have beautiful pictures of themselves printed and displayed on the wall!
How gorgeous is Kelly's Reveal Wall?
Now imagine seeing this of YOURSELF!
Kelly is a fabulous up and coming actress in the Austin area. She came to me so she could have gorgeous portraits of herself to use in her acting career. She wanted classic portraits that made her look glamorous and showed off her beautiful personality.
What's your story?
Still unsure about taking the risk?
Don't let these common fears rule you...
Click on your excuse to see the reason why you shouldn't hide behind your excuses.
I'm not photogenic
I hear this all the time. And you know what - everyone is photogenic. You just haven't had the right photographer who is trained specifically in shaping and posing women. It's my job to make you look good, not the other way around.
I'm too old
Umm no. Every woman gets better looking with age, like a fine wine and you my friend are the best vintage wine. So what if you are in your 70's. Take a beautiful picture with your daughter and granddaughter. Let them have a beautiful memory of the three of you together looking fabulous. Or just show off that fact that 70 is the new 40. Show those 20 somethings who's boss. What about my wrinkles? I am a huge believer of true authentic beauty. Every client I do smooth out the skin a little bit but believe in preserving the way you truly are. Plus those wrinkles are just great memories; why would you want to remove that?
I can't afford it
I work with clients with all budgets, I take credit cards, and I do offer payment plans. I truly believe that every woman deserves to have beautiful portraits of themselves, so I will work with you to get the portraits you deserve.
I like digital images
Great. I do too. Every print you purchase comes with a full resolution digital file. Feel free to share away on social media and enjoy seeing yourself in print. It's much more powerful than seeing yourself on a Facebook post. Trust me when I say no one gets excited about a thumb drive, but a beautiful white matted print in my luxury folio box will make all your loved ones say "Wow!"
I want to lose weight
Trust me when I say I will pose you and light you in a way that is so flattering you'll forget all about those few pounds. You will seriously look so jaw droppingly hot you won't even know what to do with yourself - especially you, new mama. This is the perfect time to get back to feeling like you again.
I'm on a deadline
I have been able to get photos done and in hand with very little notice. So reach out and let’s see what I can do for you! Most of the time your photo reveal will happen within a week and a half of your photo shoot with all of your images professionally retouched. Additional prints take about a week; albums, canvas, and other specialty products take up to three weeks.
I've got this blemish
Umm hello - Photoshop. Don't you ever let a fear of a blemish, scar, skin condition, whatever blemish you have rule you. If there is something on your body that makes you uncomfortable just let me know and I can bibbidi bobbidi boo it away in Photoshop. Consider me your digital fairy godmother.
I've never done this
Being in front of the camera can be awkward. But I take the time to get to know you beforehand, so by the time of the photo session we are like old friends and it will just feel natural. Plus I'll show you the back of the camera so you can see how gorgeous you look. I take the time in every session to pose you just right and won't take the picture until it's practically perfect.
You deserve this!
Are you out of excuses yet?
Treat yourself to a day of pampering and luxury. Truly see yourself transform into a Beautiful Fearless Woman and have the printed pictures to remember your experience. You truly won't regret it. Give yourself the ultimate gift, the power of beauty.
