Portrait Couture sessions are an experience from start to finish, and having a professional hair and makeup application is a key component. It’s not as much about the mascara or the hairdo, but about how you FEEL …..because if you feel lovely that beauty will shine in your eyes. Feeling like the best version of yourself, in that moment, is what transforms the expression and the body language and generates the magic of the portrait, more so than the styling or the posing or the lighting. We take a Before Portrait to show our everyday selves, the fresh face and simple hair and smile that we wear each day as we live our lives. The Before and After is about accepting and celebrating BOTH the everyday woman and the celebratory woman investing in herself with beautiful portraits.
