How are you supposed to show that in photos?
You don't, that's why focusing on photos is dumb and pointless, and only serves to a.) reinforce a single oppressive narrative about transition that creates an unfair rubric upon which all transgender people tend to be graded, b.) objectifies the transgender body, c.) reinforces the oppressive idea that 'success' as a female is in large part equated to a standard of physical beauty.
Instead, ask people what their experiences are like, read their writings, poems, listen to their music, etc.
To be completely frank, a successful transgender person is a living transgender person.
