Goddess Within

Exclusive offer for Nourish the Goddess Retreat participants.

I'm Shira W Rose, a Feminine Portrait Photographer based out of Raleigh-Durham, NC, and I'm thrilled to be the behind-the-scenes photographer at the upcoming Nourish the Goddess Retreat - The Revival in Nashville by Awaken with Maria. I am truly inspired by all that Maria does for her clients and can't wait to experience Nashville live and in person to capture all the beautiful moments of the retreat experience.

As a participant of the Nourish the Goddess Retreat - The Revival, you have the opportunity to not only nourish your inner Goddess through the retreat experience but also capture your essence through a custom portrait session experience with me. This private portrait offering will allow me to create a special portrait session that will capture your journey of self-love and acceptance as you rediscover your own unique beauty and reconnect to your nourished inner Goddess. The intention of this session is to create a visual representation of your journey to empowerment, healing and celebrate the Goddess within you.

During the retreat, I'll be offering exclusive Feminine Portrait session packages designed to help you embrace and celebrate your inner Goddess. I believe every woman has the power to inspire and uplift others, and my mission is to help you see through portraiture the incredible beauty and strength you possess within yourself. From elegant gowns to tasteful implied fine-art nude, my portraiture style covers a range of options to suit your individual desired outcome. Whether you want to document your journey of self-love, embrace body diversity, or simply indulge in a one-of-a-kind portrait experience, I'm here to create an experience to capture beautiful portraits that encapsulate your journey in the right here and the right now. Each session is intimate and customized to you.

Heya, I'm Shira the person behind the camera.


I created Shira W Rose Studios to serve as a movement designed to uplift women through the power of portraiture.  It is a celebration of body diversity of all shapes and sizes.  A journey to self-love and acceptance.  A platform to instill confidence and return to a place of inner power, strength, and love.


Portraiture, for me, is to capture one's authentic beauty.  As a woman, when you sit before my camera, it's not about perfection but rather a return to femininity and that certain sparkle that makes you uniquely you.


If you are ready to see yourself in a whole new light and to be celebrated as we strip away all the societal pressures that, as women, we take upon ourselves, I want to be your photographer and capture the most beautiful portrait you have ever seen of yourself.

FAQ

What is Feminine Portraiture?

Feminine Portraiture is a style of photography that celebrates and empowers women. It can encompass elegant gowns, modern minimalist, black & white portraiture with a romantic vibe, all the way to tasteful implied fine-art nudes. Each session is intimate and personal and designed around the client's desired outcome.

Do I have to get naked?

Hell no...but ya can!! The intent of Feminine Portraiture can mean different things to different people. For Shira W Rose Studios, it's a movement to reconstruct the beauty & boudoir genre to celebrate and inspire a message of body-positive, self-love & acceptance of all body types. It's a gift for yourself first rather than for another. It is a celebration of you on your terms, embracing and even falling in love with those little details you think are flaws, the curves, those tiny imperfections that make you...more beautiful and unique because every ounce of it is you.

Our clients are made up of women who are recognizing a transition of some form within their lives. They may be newly partnered, newly single, planning a family, done having children, or feeling healthy again after illness. They are acknowledging who they are and where they are in their lives right here and right now.

Feminine Portraiture is about you embracing yourself and seeing yourself for the extraordinarily beautiful being that you are today, not 15 pounds from now, not perfect abs from now...just today and now.

What is a session like?

It is Exhilarating! It starts with the preplanning session, discovering your vision, making wardrobe choices & styling ideas to get things rolling. Now I ain't gonna lie, on the day of the shoot, for some, it may take a little warming up to get out of our heads and into our bodies. That is short-lived. As you begin to feel more comfortable, the beautiful, brave & authentic you soon reveals itself and it is magical. Then we make some magic as we capture the beautiful authentic version of you one image at a time. You will feel amazing, I promise.

What do I wear?

Whatever you want. All sessions include a wardrobe consultation where we will discuss what makes you feel the most amazing. For some, it's silk; for others, your favorite oversized off-the-shoulder sweater. And some want to wear nothing at all. It's whatever makes you feel like the divinely feminine being you are. I will be with you in choosing your wardrobe every step of the way. In fact, I am bringing to the retreat select items from my beautifully curated studio wardrobe.

Can I just get the digitals?

Yes. Absolutely. There is a SLIGHT price break for digital-only packages that range from $75 - $300 off the package price based on the individual package. I know, I know, you must be thinking, why such a small reduction? The work and essentially most of the cost remain the same on my end, even in a digital-only scenario. The work is in the experience and creating the images to the level which I deliver to my clients.
