The person you desire to become is already within you, not outside of you. You deserve to not only see that for yourself, but also feel aligned with the person you've always been destined to become.

 
It's time to break free from the reflection that no longer serves you. Embrace the version of you that resonates with your core, waiting to be loved and celebrated. At DASU Studios, we see the masterpiece within, ready to emerge and redefine your self-image.

You feel stuck with the person you see in your mirror and photos - a version of you that you aren't in love with.

The way you speak about yourself builds up resentment. It demotivates, belittles and devalues the abundant person you really are. You know you don't like it, but you don't know how to change.

You tell yourself that you aren't enough and the thought of taking up space scares you.

You're not sure whether it's the lack of a supportive environment or the outside influence from societal norms that lead you to minimize yourself. The thought of putting yourself first and making sure you are taken care of worries you even though you feel the repercussions. 

"No, that's not me" is something you often say. You feel like your current perception of yourself is boxing you in.

Something's making you feel disconnected.

01. Pick From Our 12 Expressions

We've identified 12 expressions we love helping our clients connect with. Whether it's a side that you resonate with or you dismiss, we support you in exploring the multiple sides of you.

02. Craft Your Own Definition

Each expression is only a starting point - you need to give it your own meaning and intentions. Instead of boxing you into our perception of these words, we encourage you to dig deep and explore what these expressions mean to you emotionally and visually.

03. Visualize Your Expressions

We help you visualize what it means to show up proudly as these different parts of you. How do each versions of you walk, express, and dress differently? From colors and textures to clothing style, we help you pick out your wardrobe to embody each of the 3 expressions you want to celebrate.

FAQ

To schedule your portrait session at DASU, simply click on the ‘Book’ button located at the top right corner of our website. From there, you can select your preferred photoshoot date. Please note that photoshoot dates are not final until confirmed by one of our staff members. If you are on the fence or unsure of anything, you may opt for a 15-minute booking consult with us. Alternatively, feel free to reach out to us at team@dasustudios.com, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions.

Our Classic Portrait Experience starts at $4,650, which includes a product credit of $2,400 that can be used towards purchasing digital images and products during your Reveal Session. Detailed pricing info can be found under the ‘Pricing’ tab within our ‘Photo Studio’ page. 

Our Classic Portrait Session is thoughtfully designed to last roughly 6 hours in our beautiful studio.  This includes personalized hair and make-up (1.5 hours), 2-hour bespoke photoshoot, a lunch break, followed by a reveal session where you get to see and choose the images and products you’d like to purchase. 

There is no prerequisite in working with us. We are trained to guide you through every movement and pose. It is of utmost importance to us and our client experience that we help you feel the person you want to connect with. Only then, do we get to help you see those versions of you. All this to say that body language, guidance, and connection are all very important to us at DASU Studios.

DASU Studios fully embraces the multifaceted complexity of each individual. Our portrait experience, rooted in mindfulness and intentionality, is dedicated to uncovering and honoring our clients' unique essences. From the moment you engage with us, you’ll gain access to our thoughtfully crafted pre-portrait prep stages. These include reflections, intentions, moodboarding, and visualization boards, all designed to guide you through the process of self-discovery and self-exploration. Join us on this intimate journey to explore and elevate your essence, celebrating the unique work of art that is you. 

Our Classic Portrait Experience includes $2,400 in product credit, which translates to 4 edited digital images. Additional images and products may be purchased separately during your same-day Reveal Session, where you hand pick your favorite portraits and decide on the perfect way to enjoy them — as a framed wall art or a magazine book. Our clients spend an average of $7,500 with us, purchasing 12 digital images to be enjoyed in our in-house designed magazine book custom made in Japan.

 Jen

Jen is a Korean-American mom of 2 and a content creator in the beauty realm. Jen was no stranger to being in photoshoots and seeing images of herself, but even then she felt like she has yet to see a full version of herself. Being in the beauty industry, she's had to withstand the pressure of showing up "perfect" in every scenario and she wanted to break free to express a more raw and vulnerable side of her. This conversation with David led to finding two other sides of her she wanted to explore and celebrate: her cultural and sensual side. 

meet jen

Lastly, having grown up with conservative values in Kansas, Jen felt like she always had to present proper. Her sensual side was always hidden away because of her fear of judgement. Now she wants to be able to express that side of her.

sensual

As a mom of 2 and as someone who grew up being taught that crying is bad, Jen wanted to connect with her vulnerable side more. To not only tell her inner-child that it's okay to be sad, but also set the right example for her two kids.

vulnerable

Jen wanted to connect with her Korean culture in a way where she could be unapologetically Korean loud and proud in a modern way. We talked what it means to be Korean-American that empowers her.

Jilene is a cheerful soul with a passion for her career as a creative tech designer. She came to us as she was turning 40 and engaging in a new season of self-love.

"I haven’t always made time to celebrate the woman I am and the woman I am becoming. As a woman who is in a caregiving capacity and who gives a lot of herself sacrificially, it is crucial to seize opportunities for self-expression and to celebrate and acknowledge all the self-development work and obstacles overcome. I am welcoming a new chapter with excitement, where I prioritize myself first, enabling me to be my best self for others."
