Is there a need for  hair and makeup?

Hair and makeup is not included in the session fee.  (HMUA)

Most of the time men can get by without using professional hair and makeup, but we recommend a powder or foundation to help even out skin tones and to keep the face from looking shiny. You can pick up a powder in your color at any department store, we recommend the MAC counter or a beauty supply store where you can get professional help picking the right color.

For women we always recommend professional makeup. A professional makeup artist knows how to make you look your best for the camera because they understand lighting and shadows for your requirements.

You can bring your own HMUA to the shoot, or we can provide you with a list of HMUA that we work with and trust.

The photography studio is open for you to have your hair and makeup done before your session, just make sure to let us know when your appointment is scheduled.
