TheraPictures, therapeutic photography sessions in Lisbon Portugal


TheraPictures is an Intuitive therapeutic photography session in which together we will create a visual journey to work with a specific situation, emotion, or feeling in order to be able to integrate, express, feel and heal it through different techniques such as psychomagic, reenactment, metaphors, story-telling which will result in a transformative documented and healing experience which final product can be seen on an album or photo book (digital or physical)

TheraPictures is a therapeutic session created for everybody, which means that you don’t need to have any type of previous experience with posing or modeling because the main purpose of these sessions is to document a transformational process and not a make-over or a typical portrait photobook.

How does it work?

Each person is unique, and each visual journey will vary according to the situation each person wants to work with and transform or heal in the session.

But there are few common steps that will help us to create your unique Therapicture experience, these are some of the steps will take together:

  • We will have an in-person meeting in which we will get to know a little better each other and you will share with me the story that you would like to work on in the session.
  • Together we will discuss and decide the date and which creative path we’ll take for the session, this includes techniques, location, wardrobes, etc.
  • The Therapicture session will happen on the date and according to our planning, during the session I will guide you through the exploration and experiences that you need to work on while at the same time I will be taking photos in the key moments of your journey.
  • After the session, we will sit and talk about the experience and bring it to a closure.
  • After 5 working days, you will receive your digital album containing all the images that tell the story of your healing through the session which is the final product of the experience.

Working with Franca gave me relief, self consciousness and a good vibe that is still in me. She makes you feel very comfortable that you forget to have a camera between you and her and the hole thing became for me like a nice morning with a nice soul. I loved the fact that she creates settings and images with simple elements and I felt as the protagonist of a real, simple, private moment. I felt naked talking about my sadness and my pain but still not uncomfortable and when I saw the result of our work my heart was filled with a new self-love mood. She helped me to rediscover my body as an imperfect perfect shape and I could see my pain literally under a different light and perspection. The shooting with Franca lead me to give a second chance to me and to life, despite of all the darkness I was going through.


Franca is an incredible professional! She has an excellent technical mastery of photography, accurate aesthetic sense and an unrivaled sensitivity. While photographing Franca makes us delve into a sensorial and aesthetic universe that result in photographs of excellent quality and personal significance.
