“But I can't look like those women on your website…”
Yes you can! These are Everyday Women, just like you. That decided to do something for themselves.
“I'm too old”
Not you're not. All of these women are over 40. Most are over 50, and some are over 60! This beautiful lady below did this for herself as a Retirement gift!
“They are photogenic and I'm not”
You can be photogenic! It just takes the right person to help you with posing and expression. I can help you!
“All of those women are models”
No, they are Everyday Women who live in Christiansburg, Blacksburg, and Roanoke, Virginia. Teachers, Realtors, Moms, Grandmas, Veterans, Professionals, Entrepreneurs, Accountants
“I don't know what I would use the photos for…”
You can use them for your job, your business, for your family legacy, or just for yourself. We don't ever do anything for ourselves right ladies??
“They are already confident”
Nope. They were Nervous, Scared, Hated pictures of themselves, but something deep inside told them that maybe they could like atleast 1 photo from this!
“I always have a Double Chin!”
You won't in THESE photos. I know how to pose you so you will never have a double chin, even without photoshop!
I invite you to grab my free tutorial on how to eliminate a double chin to help you. I love helping women look and feel beautiful in photos.
Are you frustrated because you always have a double chin in photos?
Do you avoid photos altogether because of this?
Do you want to finally have a decent picture of yourself?
NOW YOU CAN!
I'm going to show you the MAGIC posing trick to eliminate a double chin when getting your photo taken.
Wanna know what it is?
Sign up below and I'll send you my Posing Trick (for free) that I use on all my clients, so you can try this anytime you're getting your photo taken (without me). ?
Most of my clients absolutely hate getting photos of themselves because they've had a bad experience before, the angle of the photos taken was bad, they had a double chin in the photo, or the lighting was terrible showing dark circles under their eyes.
I correct all of those things in my studio. My clients get professional hair and makeup helping them feel pampered, relaxed, and polished for the camera. This also reduces the appearance of dark circles underneath the eyes.
My studio is all natural light. I use the windows. This naturally softens the skin, evening out the skin tone, and creates an overall more flattering look on women, especially women over 40.
This is a screenshot of what Elisa posted on her Facebook page after her Glam Session. "I absolutely hate getting my photos taken. She made the photoshoot so much fun. And I absolutely LOVE MY photos!! I really felt like a celebrity on the run way. Ladies, I just can't say enough about the experience."
Here is a Before shot (when she arrived at my studio) and on the right is the last shot of the day! Look at the difference in her Confidence! She just SHINES! She's having a wonderful time and fully trusts the process.
I can't wait for you to experience a Glam Session with me! If you'd like more information, click here.
Heidi working on her coaching certification. She needed photos for social media and her website to attract her ideal client.
She likes to travel so we incorporated the map, which I love! She also likes to journal and write so we added elements that pop in the photos like color pens and a colorful notebook. Also her laptop and a bright yellow mug.
The last picture with confetti symbolizes her quitting her corporate job soon to pursue her passion in coaching teenage girls. I can't wait for that day when she can use it and CELEBRATE! 🥳
I'll be celebrating with her because it's been 2 years since I quit my corporate job to pursue my photography business full time and it's the best decision I ever made.
Ladies, pursue your dreams!

The way you pose and hold your head in a photo can create or eliminate a double chin.
And usually, it's just one simple adjustment you have to make that will fix the issue.
Push your chin (head) toward the camera. Yes, like a turtle. "Turtle your head"
It will FEEL weird, also like your a chicken, but it looks great from the front and eliminates a double chin! I do it on ALL my clients.
I did a short Facebook Live earlier this year where I demonstrated it. Here's the video: (don't ya love that screenshot of me 🤪)
That's all there is to it! Some super basic adjustments will completely eliminate the issue.

Hey there, Debbie here!
I am the photographer behind the women’s glamour studio, FiftyCentLove Photographie, here in Christiansburg, Virginia.
I'm all about empowering women and helping them see the beauty within themselves.One thing I've found though is that a lot of women are really self-conscious about how they look in photos.
They don't like their arms, they want to look slimmer, they think their smile is fake - you name it!
So to help with this, I hopped on Facebook Live earlier this year to help women with the basics of posing.
And let me tell you - my Facebook audience loved it!
It got such a good response that I decided to organize the videos into a FREE POSING GUIDE series so I could help more women love themselves in pictures.
You'll get one tip a week.
At the end, you'll get my bonus series about What to Wear for my photoshoots.

"Every woman should have the experience I have had working with the incredible photographer, Debbie Smith. Debbie skillfully and professionally captured not just my outward appearance, but also the sparkle in my eye and the confidence in my smile. But the most important part was not just the pictures, but the experience.
As women, we are constantly beat down by ourselves, other people, and the media. We are told that we are not enough......not thin enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, not successful enough. But we are made in God’s image. We ARE enough. And this experience and these pictures are a tangible reminder that this is how God sees me. Beautiful and captivating in every way. I am and feel like a princess of my almighty King.
As long as I live, I will treasure this experience, pictures, and new friendship with Debbie." - Kari Stohler

"I don’t think we ever see ourselves as others see us. Thank you for letting me see myself through your eyes!" - Sheila H.
What do you see when you see a picture of yourself? Every flaw, right? Me too, but that's not how others see you!
Others see a beautiful friend, a loving mother, a devoted grandmother and so much more. Why? Because others see "the inside" too.
When we look at photographs of ourselves we only see the outside.
In my photoshoots, I help your "insides" shine through on the outside so that you can see yourself as others see you.
Because feeling beautiful radiates from the inside out. ✨
