Serving Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana & Michigan

As we embark on this transformative journey together, I want to honor and embrace your individuality, sensitivity, and vulnerability. It is my utmost responsibility to create a safe and sacred space where you can freely express yourself and be fully seen.


Within this sanctuary, you can witness the unfolding of your own true beauty. Our aim is to weave together the harmony of your spirit and body, allowing the art to serve as a powerful visual representation of your inner self.

ExpressYourself,EmpowerYour Soul.



Each session that we create tells a story. YOUR STORY. We know that there are many facets to your existence, and we love to explore them! Through art, we are helping Black Women to tap into their hidden potential, explore the different possibilities of what life looks like for them, and to see themselves from a more loving, inspiring and powerful point of view.


While this service focuses primarily on Women of Color and their experiences, we do offer our photographic services to all who seek our vibe!


​Each session is styled, planned, created and shot by my team and I. Together, we work to create a session that best suits your vibe, taking all of the guesswork and anxiety out of the process. With a down to earth attitude and an open and inviting energy, we create a safe and comfortable environment for you to shine your light! Don't know what to wear? No problem! We create vision boards full of ideas to help you along the way, and even provide personal styling. Worried about how to pose? No worries! We provide you with easy-to-follow direction, gentle and simple posing to help you feel your best and most confident!​These are the current areas we focus on in our creative sessions. 

Session Details

Each of our sessions begin & end with a heart-centered grounding affirmation, helping us to be open and embrace what is waiting to unfold before us! We meet for our sessions, longer sessions will always have complimentary snacks, we do the damn thang, and then we get to work on your beautiful images!  Once the photos are complete, we send them to you in your own beautiful personal gallery, where you can download them and enjoy! We make the process as simple as possible, to ensure a stress free and completely enjoyable photographic experience!

Our Clients Say

"Hi, there. My name is Desmond Cotton. I just want to say that working with Damara Woodring AKA Portrait Priestess was amazing. I absolutely loved how comfortable she made me feel. I have worked with other photographers in the past. Not a single one of them made me feel as comfortable as I did with Portrait Priestess. I also loved how she captured me in an artistically divine way. If I worked with another photographer, I do not know if that level of artistry would have been translated. I love the Portrait Priestess. And I would absolutely love to do more photoshoots with her.”
