Want to "feel like a model" with an Amazing Glamour Portrait?

Karen Vaisman Photography Can Make you look amazing!

All women want to feel beautiful, both inside and out. Do you ever dream about having a glamour shot on a magazine cover? I think most women have that dream at some point. I know I did! Well, it is not that far from reality. I would love to make that dream a reality for you! No matter your age or your body type I can make you feel beautiful and special.  You deserve it! We can create glamour photos for yourself or gift them to your special someone as a surprise!

Although my website features corporate headshots, secretly, my photography passion is to help women transform themselves into that beautiful person they are inside. It is easy today to feel intimidated, keeping up with the media pressure. I would like to be your personal photo-stylist. I help women with makeup and hair stylists, their wardrobe to enhance their best features. I provide a FREE style consultation for your portrait design session. With my combination of professional photographic vision, makeup, and styling, props, backgrounds and years of directing women to pose in the most flattering way using camera angles, advanced posing techniques, the use of light and shadow, to help women feel empowered and beautiful. I capture a moment-in-time that you can proudly treasure or share with a loved one. Age and body type do not matter. My years of artistic retouching will help soften any of life's imperfections. I offer

  • Digital slenderizing

  • Bust reduction or enlargement

  • Skin softening (face, skin, chest, and neck)

  • Digital Makeup (I can add eyelashes!)

  • Reducing wrinkles (keeping personality traits intact)

  • Remove under-eye circles

  • Teeth whitening (I can even straighten a crooked tooth)

  • Remove slight imperfections like varicose veins or unwanted birthmarks)

  • Stray hair removal

  • Enhance hair color or add volume, or fill in a bald spot

My digital paintbrush will help create a beautiful image of you to fulfill your inner beauty "vision" culminating in an incredible glamour shot!

I was trained on the East coast. I am originally from New York and went to college for my creative passion: photography. After earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from Syracuse University, I moved to California to the Conejo Valley.

Below please take a look at some of my sample Hollywood, contemporary glamour and pinup portraits. Let your imagination go...what type of glamour portrait have you always wanted to try? I also offer boudoir photography. Let's dream together, then make the magical moment happen by transforming you!

Fun Pin-up Portraits!

Let your imagination go... imagine a Glamour Shot of you
Photographed by an Established Malibu photographer

...You Look AMAZING...Wind blowing...on the beach as the sunsets...

It doesn't have to be a fantasy, it is within reach. Treat yourself and capture the moment!

I once had a client, whose husband urged her to make an appointment with me to photograph her. This husband adored her and thought she was the most beautiful woman on the planet. He encouraged her to book a session by urging her to treat herself! In a brutally honest sort of way he said,

You are not getting any younger!
— Adoring, yet brutally honest, husband

" are not getting any younger!" Perhaps a bit cruel, it did get her to motivate! She dragged her feet for so many years, he didn't want her to wait until she was way past her most beautiful years. Well, it worked. We had a fabulous session and she left with 6 large portraits and an exquisite custom album. Think about what that brutally honest comment did. It guilted her into action, it probably "stung" a bit with more truth than we want to admit...but that comment resulted in an AMAZING session, a great time and some really beautiful artwork. I even created a beautiful framed "Vogue" magazine cover for her. The woman I am referring to is in the black dress and hat, with the red sash (above.) Funny how one random comment can add beautiful portraits and an album to their family heritage. She told me she wanted to have it to show off to her grandchildren one day. So when she was in her rocking chair she could show them how she looked in the prime of her life. I'd love to be able to do that for you too!

Contact me in advance and I'd be happy to set up a portrait design session to discuss your goals and ideas. We will chat, I can share with you the different products I offer, including wall portraits, albums, gift prints, custom designed cards and gallery wrapped canvases.

A common question is "Where can I find a photographer near me that I can trust to do a fabulous job?" I focus on my local Malibu service area in order to pamper my glamour photography clients. Studio photography offers a beautiful and artistic level of control to the lighting, but I am happy to travel to your location within a few hours drive from the Conejo Valley, California (additional fee applies). I offer both black & and white and color based on your tastes.
