Sarah spends her days making others feel beautiful and oozes with talent when it comes to hair and makeup. She even did her own for this session and it couldn’t have been more perfect!

When she walked into the studio I couldn’t help but get excited because I knew she was totally going to rock her session – and boy, was I was right.

Sarah, thank-you for giving me the honor of capturing your beautiful self!

raleigh-head-shots | betrueimagedesign.comWhat Sarah thought of her experience:

“As a hairstylist and makeup artist at Body Bliss Salon & Spa my mission is to reflect my clients’ inner beauty on the outside, the same can be said for Be True Image Design. They do an amazing job of capturing your inner and outer beauty through photographs. The session was fun and relaxed, as well as just made you feel great about yourself. The result was fabulous photos that I could not have gotten anywhere else.”


Be True Beauty sessions are full for August, but we’re booking September and beyond! Let us know if you’d like more information on a session for yourself or as a gift for someone you love.

Meet lovely Cassia.

I know what you are thinking… and nope, she isn’t a model. But she IS a beautiful person inside and out who happens to be an amazing entrepreneur.

Cassia is simply breathtaking. Her soulful dark eyes are framed by the most beautiful, luscious hair.

The amazing part about Cassia is that her personality and soul are just as captivating as the outside. And as she gushed about her sweet husband, I could only smile … certain that he is equally smitten with her.

In Cassia’s words:

I loved getting the opportunity to be a part of this new campaign! As a new entrepreneur for my company, Yes Dear & Co., I wanted to have professional images that were soft, feminine, and expressed character genuinely.  The entire session I felt like a movie star, and enjoyed the casual and easy going atmosphere and conversation. Christy and the Be True Image team are wonderful to work with and offer a relaxing environment for an incredible photographic experience!

Cassia, thank you for allowing me to capture your soul on camera – and for introducing us to Lucy Rose’s music!



We’ve hired portrait artist Jessica McMican to head up Be True Beauty, a new line of women’s portraiture. And we’re officially open for business today!

So what is Be True Beauty? Do you remember the Glamour Shots of the ’90s?


Be True Beauty sessions are portrait sessions for women. No partners, no children…just you, beautifully you.

Too often, women hide behind the scenes. We’re the family historians, always wielding the camera at important family events and on vacations. We’re the ones ducking behind Great Aunt Ethel when it’s time for the family reunion photo.

Maybe you lost a bit of yourself and the woman you were when you became a mother. Or maybe you’re a creative entrepreneur in need of some kick ass head shots for your website. Or maybe you want to experience what it feels like to be a model for a day. No matter the reason, we invite you in to experience a portrait session like no other.

All of our Be True Beauty sessions include professional hair and makeup right here at the studio, as well as wardrobe styling from head to toe. Jessica will walk you through each pose, bringing out your personality and inner beauty.

These sessions aren’t for models. They are for real women, like you and me. Women who have some insecurities, who put everyone first and ourselves always last.

You deserve to exist in photographs. And you deserve this experience. Check out our all-new Beauty portfolio, and read a little more about how the sessions work. Then get in touch to reserve your own portrait session, and get ready to discover the beauty within.
