Project Beauty Kenosha . 2020

Join the campaign with Melanie Landro Photography to give our daughters the gift of making a real connection with their real beauty.


As a Photographer, Mother to a preteen daughter, Aunt to two teenage nieces, and Volunteer Girl Scout Leader to several now preteen girls, my life has moved me to be a part of something so much bigger than myself, and compelled me to help girls free themselves from the ideas social media and society give us about perfection, and beauty.


I am beyond excited to once again offer Project Beauty Sessions with Melanie Landro Photography, to help our teenage daughters and girls make a real connection with their REAL beauty, and feel empowered WITHOUT makeup. To help them connect with the beauty of their character, the beauty of their personality, the beauty of WHO they are, flaws and all, to understand that THAT is what matters most. To love one’s self and accept one’s self, and to feel a very real power and confidence from that.


Middle School and High School years can be some of the hardest years on our youth's self-confidence, self-worth, and self-love. I have joined the campaign of Project Beauty, started by Ohio photographer Thomas Nguyen, to give our daughters the opportunity to truly connect, in a tangible way, with their REAL beauty. The beauty that comes from within, from who they are as a person. And let them know that we as a community of mothers, teachers, caregivers, aunts, grandmothers, WOMEN, are here to support them and guide them, as best we can, towards the healthiest and happiest self we can help them be.

Who’s with me?  Who will join the campaign?


On Saturday, April 4th, 2020, Melanie Landro Photography is offering a limited number of photo sessions for Middle & High School aged girls (11-19 years old) in the Kenosha area, where your daughters will be given the opportunity:

  • to define what real beauty is to her.
  • have the uplifting experience of a professional photo-shoot, while wearing NO makeup.
  • and receive digital image files and a professional, black&white print of her beautiful portrait in the days after her session - a TANGIBLE reminder and connection to her REAL beauty to have forever, always connecting her to the mission of Project Beauty sessions: giving her self-love, self-acceptance, self-confidence, self-worth, and genuine empowerment.



To lend further support to this campaign and mission, 25% of all proceeds will be donated to Kenosha's local organization of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) to support and help raise awareness of depression, suicide, eating disorders, bullying and those victimized by sexual violence, and to support the services NAMI can help provide to those in need.

Melanie Landro Photography's "Project Beauty" sessions hope to bring a positive light to some of the mental health issues our youth and families experience and to help normalize conversations so more of our children, and adults, feel comfortable seeking help and support when needed.
