If you’ve ever wondered how glamorous you could look (and feel!) if a professional photographer captured you in just the right light, with the perfect hairstyle, makeup and wardrobe, check out this service.

Photographer Monica Hahn of Somerset County transforms everyday subjects into glamorous models. She operates a contemporary studio that styles and shoots women and men of all ages for modeling portfolios, commercial catalogs, business head shots, makeovers and couture-style portraits.

A luxury photo shoot at Hahn’s studio can include hair styling, makeup and a wardrobe spree through her collection of shimmering gowns, trendy accessories and tasteful lingerie. She shares insider tips for posing and striking relaxed facial expressions and also offers re-touching finishes.

“It’s not so much about being a supermodel, it’s more about being yourself at your unexpected best,” says Hahn. “My style of photography is simple and casual, but the images I capture are dramatic and beautiful. My subjects are ordinary people who simply took the day off to be pampered.  I don’t believe in over-posing, but rather drawing out natural expressions and capturing them on camera.”
