Hello beautiful person, I am Darina…


I create unforgettable experiences and beauty adventures for today's women. Women these days are badass. You are bold, you are overcoming obstacles, finding your way to boldness... you want to see your TRUE self. You want to exist in exquisite, energized photographs that make you feel like you are in a magazine and keep them as your legacy for the rest of time. Why should celebrities be the only ones to have amazing photoshoots? You want to see your confidence and want to be photographed by me for yourself, and may want to share the experience with a friend, partner, child or parent.

You want to be seen and see yourself the way your loved ones see you; whole, worthy and authentic. You want to look cool

You want experiences over things. You want adventures... and the adventure could be with yourself. The adventure is YOU.

My clients are usually women who seek me out to invest in themselves through my work.

I'm in the business of beauty.  And I don't mean overly made-up photoshopped beyond recognition beauty. Real beauty. Genuine. Real.

The women that you see on my website are every day (and completely extraordinary) non-model people. They are career women, moms, grandmothers, wives, philanthropists, yogis, financial advisors, students and athletic trainers. They are who you stand in line with at the grocery store. They are not professional models.

I BELIEVE that the Darina Neyret Portrait experience is for all people. I believe that the hair and makeup I provide will make you look and feel incredible at whatever level of intensity you desire... from nude/natural to fantastic, high-fashion drama. I believe that you don't need to buy anything fancy to wear for your session and that what you've got going on naturally is perfect. I believe these images are meant to make you feel proud, strong, badass, cool, and beautiful... there is no feeling like seeing stunning portraiture of yourself everyday. 

So really about me... I was born and raised in Oakland, California, and have lived and traveled all over the world. My experiences with people of all backgrounds who speak different languages, and have different customs, has taught me about human nature, communication, body language and how to recognize the essence of who people are without words. 

I would LOVE to photograph you.
