As a 30 year birthday gift, I decided to gift these photos to myself. I’ve never been thin, never happy with my appearance. I battle a chronic health condition in addition which affects energy level and internal organs. That said, I have days where I loathe my body inside and out. I wanted to show myself that I am beautiful despite all my flaws. Argentina was great! I was very comfortable being nude and/or partially nude. She made me feel goregous and normalized my being a sweaty mess due to anxiety and getting a work out posing! She made me laugh and love what I traits I was given and how to work it! I missed out on a outfit as we were living in the moment, getting great shots with other outfits and nudes. I will just need you go back in the future! Argentina is also prompt with her email correspondence which is greatly appreciated as well.
I had an amazing experience from the beginning to end. Argentina provided all of the information I needed during our phone conversation and even provided helpful tips via email that I wouldn’t have thought to ask for. We started hair and makeup as soon as I arrived! I brought several outfits and shoes and they helped me pick the ones I wasn’t totally sure on. Eliana was fantastic and she did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup. During the shoot, I felt very comfortable. I’m not good at posing in regular pictures so I knew this would be a struggle for me. Argentina is very directive so I didn’t have an issue trying to figure out how to pose. She told me where to put my head, feet, hands, butt, facial expression, etc. If anything was missing, she’d just walk over and move me around which I found very helpful. Most importantly, my pictures look awesome! The post shoot process has gone very smoothly. This will be something I have for the rest of my life! You won’t regret it!

I was so nervous! From the start of emailing for a consultation to walking up to the door last Saturday morning. I am so glad I went through with this session, Argentina is a true artist. She makes you feel comfortable and confident. If your wondering if this is the right thing for you…read her blogs, look at her work, listen to her voice. She really does empower women by showing them at their best. She is an articulate, intelligent, woman who knows what looks good. Tastefully she showcases your best assets.
Location is great! Studio is awesome! I give the whole experience a 10! This started off as a 21st wedding anniversary gift for my husband. (which he will see soon!) But has become a gift for me.
Thank you Argentina!!!!!!
I was nervous the whole ride there. After all, I’m 55 years old. Even though I encourage my clients to do this kind of thing all the time, doing it myself was another matter. After all the inner work I’ve done, and continue to do, nothing erases conditioning. Society and culture do little to encourage sensuality, femininity, and passion in women like me. So sometimes, I just have to encourage myself.
From the moment I arrived, I KNEW I’d chosen the right artist to bring this vision to life. Argentina greeted me with hugs and smiles, like we’d known each other for life. My hair and makeup were done perfectly! My lashes were so flawless, I couldn’t bear to wash my face before 1:00 AM! Argentina selected my outfits, even laced up my corset, and added the perfect accessories.
We laughed and talked through the entire shoot and long afterward. There was no rush, no hurry, and I got so much more than beautiful pictures. It was transformative. It was therapeutic. It was fun. She’s more than just a photographer; she has a heart and vision for women that is rare . . . and much needed.
I’d encourage any woman wondering, gift yourself the opportunity to see yourself in an entirely new way! Take a look at the woman who’s been alive (and most often, hiding) inside you all along. Once you SEE her . . . you’ll ALWAYS remember her!
Argentina is absolutely AMAZING! I went to her Austin Texas studio. The whole experience was empowering! The make up artist was awesome too. Every woman needs an experience like this at least once in their life. I will definitely do this again. Well worth the time and money.
