"Thanks to Cyndy Porter, I am better able to dress 'my new body' and restore my confidence. There are many challenges and surprises as we age, body changes are sometimes difficult to deal with, let alone accept. I remember waking up one morning and seeing my 'mother's body' in the mirrored image in front of me. Did that happen overnight? When I would go shopping, my eyes would go to the styles I had always preferred. I would have to remind myself, not anymore. The hourglass figure was gone. I began to dress differently and kept attention away from my waistline. After a few styling workshops with Cyndy, I felt confident to put belts back on, wear brighter colors again, and have my confidence restored. Aging is one more experience, a new chapter. If you want to get excited about style, fashion, and feel the self confidence, give Cyndy a call and start your own exciting journey."

"Cyndy captivated the Rockwell Collins Women’s Forum, helping us all to understand how to create our own unique style. The two workshops gave us the tools to discover ourselves and define our appearance. I was personally intrigued by the color analysis and discovering what hues and colors complement my skin tone, hair, and eyes. The awareness on how colors affect how you look and the image you portray is important when selecting pieces for your wardrobe."
Maria Winters, Principle Program Manager at Rockwell CollinsSeptember 22, 2015
"Cyndy assisted the Rockwell Collins Women’s Forum by helping us all to discover how to take what's unique about ourselves and transform that into a message. She was able to help me, personally, to portray a person that is both confident but still approachable. I would highly recommend Cyndy to business professionals looking to balance multiple aspects of who they are while still dressing for success."
Dr. Uppasna Chand, Owner and Dentist at McLean Family DentistrySeptember 8, 2015
"Cyndy is an extremely talented and perceptive photographer and image consultant. She has a high level of professionalism and yet is very easy and enjoyable to work with. Cyndy listened to the needs of the project, met them and then followed up to be sure the project was completely satisfactory to all the clients. We could not be happier with her work."
Joda Coolidge, for her project at Georgetown University Grad SchoolSeptember 6, 2015

Her work demonstrates artistry, intuition and experience in capturing truly authentic images. I enjoyed working with Cyndy, her comfortable style and professionalism were remarkable."
Tricia Boland, Program Manager at Axiom Resource Management, Inc.September 1, 2015
"Cyndy Porter did the photography for our new website, and we are delighted with our results, as well as the experience of working with her. We needed a series of onsite photographs that told the story of our practice, including shots of our medical director working with patients and headshots of our staff. Cyndy went above and beyond what we requested; she brought in patient models, a make-up artist, and an excellent assistant for the day of the shoot, and she made everyone feel comfortable as she photographed us. She has a wonderful sense of humor, and she worked so efficiently that we actually finished up earlier than expected. After the shoot, she delivered the photos to us very quickly, and they were exactly what we were looking for. Cyndy did an outstanding job for us, and we highly recommend her for anyone who is looking for a professional photographer!"
Janice Adamshick, Practice Manager at Aesthetic Medical Center September 1, 2015
"We have worked with Cyndy for about one year now, and I can honestly say it has been a pleasure. She helped us to develop a corporate headshot program that blends seamlessly with our existing shots, provides great ease and flexibility and is very reasonably priced. To top it off, there seems to be something about Cyndy’s personality that has put all of our folks at ease. In each case I’ve had multiple great shots to choose from and they have all said they really enjoyed working with her. We look forward to working with Cyndy for years to come."

"Cyndy, thank you for sharing your knowledge with us at NEW. You were a breath of fresh air. You enlightened the attendees on how to explore and see the beauty that lies within each and every one of us. The knowledge you shared on how to express our inner beauty to the world, along with the importance of defining our own unique style left attendees inspired to try something NEW."
Tammy Shapiro, President of Networking Executive Women (NEW)September 1, 2015
"Cyndy’s workshop was fun, enlightening and very useful! I had had my colors “done” many years ago, but Cyndy’s creative and photographer’s eye refined what I thought I knew about what would look best on me. That was only one small part of the workshop, though. Cyndy creates a very holistic approach to how you present yourself in the world — from your personal color palette, to make up, to health and wellness and lifestyle. Cyndy herself is a living example of what she teaches: she is warm, gracious, welcoming and totally puts one at ease in talking about what could be sensitive issues. The workshop was delightful and left me eager for more!"
Susan Bravernan, Life CoachSeptember 1, 2015
"I had the good fortune to hear Cyndy Porter speak at a WIT breakfast – and was so impressed that I signed up for a two-day workshop. Money and time well-spent! To say the workshop was a revelation for me is not exaggeration! It opened my eyes to a lot of things about my style and how I present myself, and gave me very specific, very personal suggestions on little changes that have made a big difference! I pay more attention to how I put myself together every day, and am thrilled with how easy it is to adopt new style habits that simplify the process of getting ready for the day. Cyndy creates an environment that is warm and welcoming, allowing her clients to relax and think freely about what they want their style to be – and how to achieve it. I wish everyone could treat themselves to this workshop – it’s worth it."
Sally Flynn, McMenamin Consulting Group September 1, 2015
"I recently did a workshop with Cyndy and learned a lot about style (that I thought I knew but really did not). Cyndy makes everything about this process easy and approachable. As a personal brand strategist, how you look plays a big role in that first impression. Cyndy does styling and also photography, so if you are looking for someone to give you a great head shot and provide feedback on your style, colors, and how they relate to your personal brand - she is definitely the one."
Jen Dalton, Business ownerSeptember 1, 2015
"I hired Cyndy to take new head shots. She made me feel at ease during the session. Her recommendations on poses and color selection were great. Just look at my profile pictures – the results speak for themselves."
Lenny Berger, Owner of The Handy MenschSeptember 1, 2015
"I think Cyndy is absolutely amazing! She is so personable and easy to work with. She has a great eye and gives great advice on what to wear to bring out your best attributes. I was extremely nervous and she made me feel at ease. Fabulous photographer and stylist!"
Dr. Uppasna Chand, Owner and Dentist at McLean Family DentistrySeptember 1, 2015

Marie-Louise Murville, CEOSeptember 1, 2015
"As a creative, there is always anxiety when bringing in a new ally to help you achieve your goal. Once I saw how beautiful Cyndy’s photography is and how she conveys the empowerment of women, I knew I had a perfect match for my new photographer. Cyndy’s portfolio speaks for itself. But, what you don’t see is her ability to make the subject feel at ease and beautiful. She brought in her own make-up artist, who really set the tone for our shoot. She was not only talented but friendly. A little pampering, stylish make-up, and my client was feeling confident and ready for the camera. I thought I had a strong working relationship with this client, but now I can do no wrong."
Jason Sawyer, Senior Art Director at AetherQuest SolutionsSeptember 1, 2015
"Cyndy, I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful your portrait session helped my daughter’s self esteem. She had a lot of negativity thrown at her from other girls in the school. I was aware of some issues but not the depth as most kids that age can be really mean. When you worked with her during the shoot, she blossomed. You took your time with her and made helpful wardrobe suggestions. Your kind and gentle attitude was salve to her ego. Afterwards, when she saw the proofs, she was silent for a moment and then said, "Mommy, I really am pretty." It has been such a boost to her moral that we got her off the downward spiral. Thank you again."
Michele Wright, Estate AttorneySeptember 1, 2015
"Cyndy is definitely on to something powerful. The information and direction she provided through example and group discussion was spot on. Cyndy’s expert eye for style and inner beauty combine with her methods to make visual magic."
Rebecca Gaither, Event PlannerSeptember 1, 2015
"Working with Cyndy taught me so much about my unique style and what works best with my features and personality. She has an uncommon gift at perceiving colors and she opened the door for me to begin to see myself in a different light."
Wendy Kohnstamm, Sales DirectorSeptember 1, 2015
"I had the pleasure of attending Cyndy’s Image and Style workshop and I loved it. I learned so much about who I am, how I project and what truly makes me feel confident and beautiful. The activities were fun, educational and creative. Best of all – I made connections with other women and took tons of beauty secrets home! Thank you Cyndy, you are gem!"
Veronica Vannoy, Business Owner and Graphic ArtistSeptember 1, 2015
"The Image Styling consultation with Cyndy opened up a whole new world to me and increased my confidence!! Before meeting with Cyndy, I was not aware that the colors and I often wore did not compliment my skin tone. Cyndy worked with me to find my color palate to bring out my natural beauty and radiance. The wardrobe book she provided and personalized for me was eye-opening and very informative. I learned how to wear clothes that accentuate my figure, and it has helped so much!! Shopping is no longer a chore for me anymore now that I know what I am looking for. The consultation was such a great experience that I shared with my Mother. Cyndy is knowledgeable, caring, energetic, and FUN! I was then able learned from Cyndy for my engagement photo shoot! I felt beautiful, comfortable and confident throughout the photo session because I was able to pick a dress that was very flattering. I would highly recommend a Image Styling consultation with Cyndy for anyone. I learned so much and had a great time! Thank you, Cyndy!"
Karina Wilson, Dental AssistantSeptember 1, 2015
"I am thrilled with my stylist work with Cyndy Porter! Cyndy and I worked together for about a total of 8 hours going over my body measurements, my best colors, my face shape, my hair and skin, and then assessed the best clothes, shoes and jewelry for me given my figure, my coloring and my preferences! I learned so very much that was so tremendously invaluable! I cannot believe that I did not know the things I learned about proportion, fit, and complementing my face shape and figure. Prior to this work, I focused erroneously only on colors that suited me best. Now I have a much better understanding of fit and proportion with clothes, and also with jewelry and shoes. I changed my hair style slightly and this too feels much better also."
Katie Horan, Power MomSeptember 1, 2015
"The workshop gave me new insights into how to enhance my own personal style through a better understanding of color, body awareness,and make-up. The women were great, Cyndy is very knowledgeable, plus a lot of fun."
Margie Doppelt, WriterSeptember 1, 2015
"I had the pleasure of attending Cyndy’s essence of you and I can’t say enough about the process! I learned a ton about myself on a personal level and now I feel empowered to choose the right color clothes that look good on my body. My confidence in this area has greatly increased and I am ready to represent who I truly am to the world. Thank you Cyndy for you loving guidance."
Mina Fies, Business OwnerSeptember 1, 2015
"She is terrific in bringing out the inner personality of her subjects and helping them to shine."
Gail Embt, Business OwnerSeptember 1, 2015
"Oh my, where to begin with all the perks of having Cyndy with Uniquely Yours give you the once over! I am a woman of 60 years and I guess one gets a bit comfortable in ones skin.Having no idea or even contemplating what we look like to others? Cyndy showed me how wonderful age really is once you know how to go with your flow! How to complement "textured skin" through pattern, jewelry and color. How to bring out the best in your individual style through how you dress everyday. Whether you are dressing up or dressing down you will always feel your best….a uniquely beautiful woman!! And one last note….Your style of walking has everything to do with your style of clothing. Work with it not against it! Thank you Cyndy!"
Emily Seiler, Business OwnerSeptember 1, 2015
"Cyndy’s image and style workshop is a must attend for any woman trying to look her best. The collaborative environment, great content and positive attitude is great knowledge to have. I am excited to work with Cyndy to expand my understanding of color, style, customized headshots and more. From an investment perspective, Cyndy’s services are well worth the cost. We all spend $$ on our clothes, accessories and homes but may not be hitting the mark. With Cyndy’s valuable guidance, you will be making better choices for yourself. I highly recommend Cyndy."
Judy Freeman, Executive CoachSeptember 1, 2015
"I’ve been a style phobe most of life, hiding under mostly shapeless colorless clothing. My standard uniform for work was black pants and a turtle neck. I knew for sure that I didn’t want to draw too much attention to myself but what I didn’t realize until I took Cyndy’s workshop was that I was inadvertently sending a message to the world ~ something along the lines of, don’t mind me, I’ll just blend into the woodwork…and that’s not what I wanted. Cyndy taught me to ditch the black, adopt some more flattering colors and necklines, and to give myself permission to feel pretty. I left the workshop standing taller, excited about the prospect of wearing something softer and knowing that how I look sends a clear message to the world about how I feel about myself."
Robin Tucker, Life CoachSeptember 1, 2015
"I know I was a difficult subject. I don’t like to be the center of attention. You really did an excellent job and I’m so grateful for your patience. Not only did you give me great pictures but you helped my self-esteem. I’m really looking forward to the style workshops."
Mary Lou, AttorneySeptember 1, 2015

Tina Johnson, President and CEO of JP Events & ConsultingSeptember 1, 2015
"Thank you for your presentation at the Rock ‘N Rule workshop. As I mentioned, your story touched me and the others in the room. We needed to be reminded that we ARE beautiful, and that image consultation isn’t about makeup and covering things up but truly using our brand wisely and WEARING it!"
