You’ll feel more confident when you step in front of the camera! 

Who doesn’t feel absolutely beautiful with professional hair and make up done? Trusting a professional to make you look good will definitely help you feel more polished. Knowing you look as incredible as you feel will make you feel ready to be in front of the camera. Not to mention, professionals know how to highlight what’s important on your face/hair. This is extra important, since you need more makeup than normal when you’re being photographed. 

It relieves the stress of doing it yourself!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with DIY hair and makeup – but on the day of an important photo session, there’s something comforting about trusting a professional. It’s one less thing you have to do for yourself before your photos and you can just relax while a professional takes care of you! Pamper yourself and enjoy this special time for you and your business! 

Your hair & make up artist will help you to achieve the look you want. 

When you think about the look of your branding photos, I bet you thought about your hair and makeup in those pictures too! A professional can help ensure that any look you want will be brought to life – without the frustration of doing it yourself! Make sure to bring inspiration for your stylist, and they’ll help you find the perfect look! 

Hiring a professional makeup artist and hair stylist can elevate your session. You’ll look incredible, you’ll feel incredible, and your images will show that confidence! But, don’t just take it from me. Take it from one of my favorite Nashville makeup artists, Madison of MHD Beauty

“When you hire a professional hair & makeup artist for your branding shoot, you will look your very best. Yes, you should still look like yourself. But a good artist will blend their expertise with your desired look which will achieve an outcome that both photographs well but also presents you in your best light. You can also have your artist stay with you during the shoot and give you multiple different looks. A professional artist’s work will typically last longer throughout your shoot, and that artist’s work will usually help you to use the photos without any extra retouching on your skin & hair.” 

If you’re ready to book your professional hair and makeup artist for your branding sesion, make sure to check out Madison! She’s incredible – and offers lots of services plus tutorials. Trust me when I say, you won’t regret the extra pampering and attention before your portraits!
