Let's chat about what brand shoot you are considering!

VIRTUALLY STUNNIN

Not a makeup guru? No worries! Virtual lessons are your new BFF. Get personalized instruction from the comfort of your couch, with the amazing Kim Baker Beauty! (P.S. She was a HMUA for years, but now she’s doing makeup lessions!)

BOUTIQUE BEAUTY

Treat yourself to a makeup session at a local salon or Sephora. It’s a budget-friendly way to get pampered and photoshoot-ready. Remember to do a practice session to ensure you like the work before your big shoot and when you do, send pics to your photographer!

HAIR & MAKEUP HERO

Elevate your shoot with a hair and makeup artist also known as HMUAs. They’ll work their magic at your home, the shoot location, or their studio. Book 3 hours in advance of the time your photoshoot starts and ask for tips to tough up through the shoot.

ULTIMATE GLAM GODDESS

Budget no object? Hire an HMUA for the entire shoot! They’ll be your personal glam squad, transforming your look throughout the day, taking care of “fly aways” during the shoot and can even change up your hair for each outfit.
