Although the majority of my portrait sessions are currently in Charlotte and Asheville, I do often travel to clients who live in different areas. In this case, you may be looking for a different hair and makeup artist than the ones suggested.
The following are my top things to look for when hiring your artist:
1. Work with someone who offers Airbrush Foundation. This is truly the mark of a professional and your skin will look flawless rather than cakey.
2. Work with someone who offers on-location services. This is most important for newborn sessions. As a new mother, having your hair and makeup done in the comfort of your own home before your session is priceless.
3. Work with someone who offers hair styling as well.
4. If you are unsure, ask to see a portfolio of their work. Professional makeup artists should have a selection of work to show you their style and skill level.
Please feel free to ask me to locate a hair and makeup artist in your area if you are feeling hesitant or unsure on what to look for.
