Professional Hair & Makeup: My Experience – Branding Photography

This smile is the moment I checked my hair & makeup in the mirror and decided my next goal in life is to afford to be able to hire Shay to clean me up every day!!!

I'm kidding! BUT for my own branding shoot, I knew I needed my amazing makeup artist & hairstylist friend Shay Reinert to take care of me. She is the perfect mix of professional & fun. She was even able to work around my little girl crawling around her feet the entire time.

Working with Shay made me feel so confident in all of my photos. It was so nice to not have to stress about taking care of my own hair & makeup (believe me, I am NOOOO expert in that department). All I had to do was show up and she made me look amazing.

Shay was able to create that difficult look of "natural but not natural" and tame my wild curls. I have tried to take photos of myself in the past and always found something to criticize. This time, I loved every photo of myself and I know that it is all thanks to Shay! It isn't just about the hair & makeup, she was so encouraging and made me feel like I was a rockstar.

I loved having the opportunity to experience this myself. I will ALWAYS recommend my clients hire a professional for their hair & makeup, especially for any professional, branding, or marketing photos!

Want to reach out to Shay for your session? Give her a call! (832) 363-7274 and let her know I sent you! You won't regret it.
