Daphne, a Boston Brahman, was building her photography career while attending college majoring in Art History. Daphne has been a professional photographer, specializing in fantasy and glamour photography, for over twenty-five years. It was at the urging of her mentor, Roydon Burke, that she began entering photography contests, winning one award after another worldwide.
Most teenage girls aspired to attain glamour portrayed in movies. Diane, being approached for a modeling career herself, opted to stay behind the camera instead. Spending time perfecting her craft. Diane works from the soul, with an intuitive ability to transform the average woman into a visual affirmation of her hearts desire.
After mastering technical aspects of photography, Daphne bought her first studio. However, during one shoot, Daphne realized she couldn’t even see her subject through all the artificial lighting and equipment. She then realized props and mechanics only served to obstruct inner beauty. The equipment somehow blocked the quality of the final photographs.
After this realization, Daphne was able to shed her prior misconceptions. She was free to create the trademark photographs she has become known for. By using natural light, Daphne was able to create the breathtaking style used by the great modern painters. Without confines of excessive lighting, Daphne intimately captured the essence and beauty of her clients. Walls literally came down. Just camera, client and photographer.
“I wanted to be the equalizer for the average woman. Who doesn’t have all the beauty enhancement techniques, products, services and artists to help manufacture the unattainable, unrealistic images you seen in magazines”. The studio evolved into a place where women receive what they need to express their sensuality via photography.
Daphne has a lifelong interest in spirituality, Energy Healing, Card Reading, Reiki, Astrology and Numerology and continues to learn and utilize these teachings in her photography sessions. She has practiced Buddhism since 1976. By simplifying her understanding of metaphysics , Daphne and her partner Diane created “Tell A Fortune”™, a patented system of card reading for the novice.
