THIS IS ABOUT YOU.
EMBRACING YOUR AUTHENTIC BEAUTY.
LUXURY PORTRAIT SESSIONS
Hello lovely, I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Jai Mayhew and I’m a fashion photographer turned luxe portrait photographer. I believe that all women are beautiful, without exception, and it is with joy that I am able to introduce each of my clients to a beautiful new side of themselves. Together with my stylists, I will create for you a custom session you will treasure. This shoot is about you, embracing your authentic beauty.
WHY CHOOSE JAI MAYHEW FOR YOUR PORTRAITS?
Jai is an award winning portrait photographer and an internationally published fashion photographer. Jai’s long list of of publication credits + happy clients clearly shows that she’s more than a photographer, she’s an artist with a unique vision for every woman she photographs. But it doesn’t stop at the final image, Jai believes that you deserve a luxury experience to accompany your celebrity style portraits. The time you spend with Jai, being pampered by a stylist and posed and photographed by a fashion photographer, is something that you will treasure for a lifetime.
WHY SHOULD I DO THIS?
You should do this for you.
Because you are beautiful. You are worthy. Darling, you are SEEN.
When you feel good about yourself you carry yourself differently, you talk to yourself differently, you love yourself differently.
Too many women avoid being in front of the camera because they’re used to being disappointed. I understand this, I’ve been there. But what would it be like to look at your images and feel pride, love, joy?
I challenge you to let me take the most incredible image you’ve ever seen of yourself. I am a full time photographer. I spend my days, every day, creating beauty. I know what it looks like. I know how to bring it forward, and I know how to capture it with my camera. Allow me to create something incredible with you, it will change the way you see yourself. (And if your family benefits from it too, then wonderful! But this, my dear, is entirely for you.)
WHY IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER PORTRAIT SESSIONS?
Forget Glamour Shots and those awkward, been-done poses. My studio offers an incredible, full-service photoshoot like you’ve never experienced. I’ll capture you in authentic portraits that you’ll love. I’ll help you with posing to achieve natural looks and expressions (no fake smiles or awkward poses here). You’ll have access to world class makeup artists & hair stylists to help you look your best, and you’ll even have access to my gorgeous studio wardrobe to help complete your looks. It’s a day of pampering and celebrating YOU. This is a commercial experience created for private clients.
So how do we get started? First you fill out my CONTACT FORM. Then we'll schedule a FaceTime consultation to chat about your shoot. I love learning about you and listening to what your dream shoot looks like. Let me know your likes and dislikes, your preferred styles and colors so I can craft the perfect session for you. When you’re happy with everything, and I have the finer details, we’re ready to book.
WHAT SHOULD I BUDGET?
This investment in yourself starts at $350 and includes a consultation, a 4 hour photoshoot, a professional hair & make up artist, ice cold champagne and up to 5 outfit changes. Packages start at $2000. Curious to know more? Let's chat about it! Fill out my contact form and we’ll set up a call to chat about exactly what I can create for you, what products would be right for you and what the pricing might look like. I often tell clients that my sessions are the ultimate luxury accessory- timeless, exclusive and handmade. Let’s chat about what I can create for you, and from there we can discuss what your dream photoshoot looks like!
The final choice in packages and photos is yours. My packages are thoughtfully crafted based on my clients’ most frequent purchases as well as the high demand and limited availability. But there is no sales pressure in my studio. Come in and let me wow you with your own beauty. Do this for you. Let me lift you up through photography. You will never look at yourself the same way again.

I'M SELF-CONSCIOUS ABOUT MY BODY, SHOULD I STILL BOOK A SHOOT?
As women we're our own worst critics, but you are beautiful right now, just as you are. I’ve heard every excuse out there as to why now isn’t the right time to be photographed (“I need to lose weight” “I’m not photogenic” “I don’t like my smile”) - I promise you not a single one of my clients walked into the studio saying, “Now that I’m perfect it’s time for a shoot.” Of course not! The women on my website are real women- moms, sisters, daughters, grandmothers. And they are extraordinarily beautiful. Trust me, you’re in good hands. You will love your portraits.
If you're nervous, don't be. I will strategically pose and light you in ways that will be flattering to you. To help you visualize the process, here are some of my BEFORE AND AFTER transformation images and here are some words of praise from past clients.
WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OR RETOUCH MY IMAGES? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Yes, every image presented to you will have been retouched by me. Professional retouching goes far beyond removing blemishes or whitening teeth. Retouching is a luxury art form that adds the same professional polish to your images that you see in Vogue or Vanity Fair portraits. It is a time intensive, high end service, but I believe your images deserve the best.
* Please know that the purpose is to enhance your images in subtle and beautiful ways, not drastically alter them. I retouch conservatively for a natural look but will edit your images to your liking. For more information about retouching, click HERE to take a look at a few of my befores & afters.
HOW DO I BOOK MY PORTRAIT SESSION?
I’d love to talk about ideas and availability!
To book your session a non-refundable retainer will reserve your date. I accept a limited number of commissions, so most clients inquire well in advance to reserve their date.
WHAT KIND OF PRODUCTS DOES YOUR STUDIO OFFER?
I’m proud to offer a variety of high end products through which you can display your portraits. I offer handmade leather folio boxes that will hold your professionally matted prints. I offer framing services and digital software that will help us to create a gallery wall for your home. I offer luminous metal prints that yield vibrant colors, rich blacks and a high shine finish for those who want a more modern alternative to framing. I also offer beautiful albums in a variety of sizes that can decorate a coffee table or be given as a gift to a loved one. I will bring your stunning portraits to life in the way that best compliments your home and lifestyle.
WHAT ABOUT SENIOR PORTRAITS?
I love working with seniors! Together we'll create a session that blends portraiture and fashion to give your senior a model experience she'll never forget. Whatever style you're looking for, we can plan something stunning both you and she will love!
WHAT ABOUT MATERNITY PORTRAITS?
I have such incredible love for Maternity shoots and I would love to create an intimate, Fine Art experience for you and your growing family to treasure. To look through my maternity portfolio, please CLICK HERE. Maternity sessions are best captured between 31 and 35 weeks, but I will work with you to schedule whenever your schedule allows.

WHAT ABOUT ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Congratulations! I would absolutely love to be the one capturing this special time for you. An engagement session is all about celebrating your love for each other. The wedding will be a fast-paced, amazing time with your family and friends, but this shoot is a slow savoring of your love and romance and excitement for the future.
