When was the last time you’ve been professionally photographed?

Hey there, I’m Paula Nguyen Luu. I am a Contemporary Portrait Photographer living in Houston TX.

As portrait photographer, my goal is to reveal the essence of my clients. I believe the best portrait captures the many facets of one’s personality, interests, and affections. Sometimes women do not see their own beauty. Sometimes, men do not realize their charm. My greatest joy is to bring these images to light so that people, whoever they are can see the best version of themselves


“If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then my camera is the eye by which I see the fullest potential of a person.”

Much love,

- Paula



Everyone has a model within them, I have a knack for bringing that side of you out with a little bit of flattering fabric, a touch of makeup, and the right lighting.

Our Portrait Session Process:

We begin with an in-person, phone, or FaceTime consultation to get to know you and to talk about the type of portrait session you want and how to prepare. Also, included: A hair and make-up session with a professional stylist. 

A two hour portrait session set in the comfort of a lovely home studio with hor d’oeuvres and refreshments. Gentle coaching in poses that flatter you and your beautiful portraits finished, printed and ready to take home and enjoy for a lifetime.


Working with Paula at is more like the experience of bearing witness to an artist at work than that of sitting for a portrait. She gifts you with a portrait of yourself that is just what you’d hope you look like in the world.
