On the day of your session, my team and I will help you look and feel absolutely gorgeous; however, confidence, self-love and self empowerment truly is the name of the game, and I fully recognize that your confidence is carried with you every day, in everything you do.
It is because I understand this that I have hired on specialists to support you throughout your portrait experience. These are local women-owned businesses, specializing in building your self-love and confidence, each in their own incredibly important way. Not only they will help you prepare to look your best on the day of your session, but it is their ultimate goal that you will be able to confidently apply the principals given, to feel your best everyday.
When your time in our care is done, it is my goal that we have re-introduced you to the self you are meant to love.

Our Makeup and Skin Care Specialist.
Kathy has been in the Skin Care and Makeup industry for 12 years. She is a skin care expert specializing in making your skin look and feel great, and she is also color certified.
What's in her arsenal of tricks and tools? She raves about Mary Kay and uses them for every application. When asked why she loves them, she says she just loves everything about their culture, sisterhood and what they can bring to other women. She loves what they stand for, but she especially loves that she gets to see the confidence in a woman change right before her eyes, and that is huge thing to be a part of.
Approximately 2-3 weeks before your scheduled session, Kathy will come to your home to run your makeup test. This is important because Kathy knows how to apply makeup that is appropriate for how a camera photographs but we also want your look to reflect your style.
She will spend time educating you on how to best prepare your skin for your session and then apply your test run, in which you will work together to achieve a look that you are both pleased with.
Her guidance and services are included in your session, our gift to you, because we believe in more than just having an incredible makeover! We believe in giving you the confidence to recreate that look over and over again.
Our Clothing Stylist.
We have taken all the stress out of planning your wardrobe for your session and brought Gayle on board!
Gayle has the incredible talent of pulling things from your closet that you would have never paired together and make you love them, or turn things you thought you hated but for some reason never got rid of, and show you how to love it. Her clients love it so much that she has built her entire business off of giving you back your confidence, within your very own closet!
During our design and styling appointment, Gayle will join us for a closet raid to help you find something in your own closet that you may love for your session, and who knows a few other things you didn't know you'd end up loving too!
We are covering her first hour of working in your closet to prep for your session, as our gift to you, because getting ready for your session should never be stressful, and instead should be about fun and rediscovering what you love on your body.
