Capture Your Miraval Journey

Beauty lies within our true selves yet many of us have shut down our own beauty and closed off our relationship with the self. Beauty is not defined by how we look; instead, beauty is a more sophisticated description of someone’s essence. In this session you will work with renowned photographer, Marion Kaufer, to reconnect with your inner beauty. Her genuine love for photography and open spirit make her the perfect partner to bring out your confidence and create a supportive and fun environment for a photo shoot. You will go home with a professional 8x10 photo of yourself and the ability to see yourself differently!

This session includes:

  • Hair Styling & Make-up Application prior to photo shoot
  • An 8x10 print of your choosing by mail
  • Ability to order additional prints
