The Portrait Experience

A pre-session phone or zoom consultation to meet Shané. Let’s hear what you’re dreaming of and how you want to be photographed.

Let's plan how you want to be photographed, discuss your style/“looks” and plan your portrait experience.  

Your favorite music is playing, the energy is booming and the snacks are plenty. You take care of everyone else, let us take care of you! This will be a transformative, memorable portrait experience starting with professional makeup. Release the stress, we will make sure you are comfortable to showcase your personality and unleash your superpower. We will help you show up in front of the camera with authentic expressions and natural poses, complimentary for your body. From head to toe, you will be directed and guided on posing. In the end, you will feel a confidence boost and see yourself in a way you’ve never seen yourself before!

Days after your photo session, you’ll schedule a time to select your favorite images and have the option to purchase images, custom wall art and products that will last you a lifetime. After your selections, the finishing touches will be applied and your images will be uploaded to a private gallery. Your wall art or custom products will be printed, framed and ready for the big in-person reveal.

You’ll be amazed at how you’ll feel seeing yourself in a beautiful large print!

Apply your Creative Session Fee to any Image Collection, before or after you see your beautiful images.


Shané is top tier in every way. Her eye behind the camera is a gifting and she pairs it so well with knack for details in her work. Whether for business or personal use you can't go wrong with choosing Imiivo. The photos are truly timeless you (or your brand) would be grateful.
Shoots with Shané are always professional and she goes far and beyond to make people comfortable in front of the lense.

Learn About HER why

Shané was very kind, fun and patient during my shoot. From our first meeting to producing the final product Shane was on it. I am very pleased with her work. I highly recommend Imiivo!

Love, love, love Shané and her company. We have booked several shoots with this company! Very professional, timely, and amazing photography work. We love the atmosphere and the protection we felt doing the shoot during COVID.

I had a fantastic experience with Shané, she has a wonderful personality and made me feel comfortable during our photo session. The photos are amazing, I cannot wait to publish my website with them on it. Thanks Shané!

My photoshoot with Imiivo Photo Studios surpassed my expectations. I am still in awe of the photos taken during my photoshoot. I find myself going back to the photos and wondering who is the woman in the pictures? 

Then I remind myself that the woman in the pictures is me!  

Shané was so professional and patient. Her pre-photoshoot welcome package and wardrobe consultation helped me to prepare and made me feel good about doing something for myself.  

The final product simply wowed me and reinforced that there are "camera phone" pictures and then there are "professional" pictures. The finished product of the professional pictures was absolutely worth it, and I had fun during the session. 

Shané has a way of coaching you through and making you feel at ease. I look forward to booking future sessions.
