Self Portrait by Mayumi Acosta Photographer in Sacramento CA

about me

Making people feel and look beautiful and confident in portraits has been my passion for the past five years. I strongly believe there is beauty in every person and to me, a portrait is a way of exploration, discovering and celebration of your inner strength and power. I have photographed thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds and I love doing it. Finding beauty in people and helping them realize their own allure is my expertise and enlightens my soul. I call my art “portraits from the heart” because I believe that portraiture can reach a level where we are no longer seeing the image but actually feeling it. This essentially is the result of the strong connection I create with my clients. I love making them feel comfortable in their own skin. Seeing their confidence flourish in front of my lens, photographing them being themselves completely and unapologetically, and seeing their faces light up when they see their portraits for the first time is priceless. I enjoy giving a celebrity experience for everyday people, an experience that is transformative and life-changing.

I invite you to a photo shoot with me. Step into your power and let me capture you at your most beautiful. I promise this experience will change the way you see yourself.
