A Professional Hair and Makeup artist is never required… but highly suggested.. even for men, and especially for women.  Daily makeup is different than that used for film and photos.  The Hair and Makeup Artists allows you to focus on the session, and not worrying about a hair being out of place.  We want you to look your absolute best while shooting.  Makeup should be fresh, light and hardly noticeable.  We want YOU to shine through, not having too much makeup as a distraction.

If you prefer to use your own HMUA, you are absolutely welcome to do so, but you must come to the shoot “camera ready”, meaning all makeup must be done prior to the start of our session.  Your HMUA is also welcome to be at the shoot for small touchups and small hair changes.
