Professional Hair and Makeup for Portrait Photography in Austin, TX

As Moms we are the planner of all the things, right?! Add finding outfits that coordinate, a dress that you feel beautiful in, and arriving on time- it’s a lot. Being a Mom of two, I know how much effort goes into getting into the photos with my kids. It may seem less common to have professional hair and makeup for portrait photography sessions in Austin, but it makes such a difference. 

But I also know how necessary it is to document your family as a whole- whether you’re welcoming a new baby, celebrating a milestone, or simply documenting your little ones because they are growing too fast. 

As a family, newborn and maternity photographer in Austin, TX my goal leading up to your session is to make the planning process as easy as possible. That way, on session day you can just soak in these moments with your children. And for once, you can be in the photos with them!

Each session includes access to not only a beautiful, curated selection of dresses and outfits for Moms and kids, but also professional hair and makeup services on session day.

I cannot stress how much having this service adds to your portrait photography experience in Austin.

5 Reasons Why Professional Hair and Makeup is Included in your Session | Portrait Photography in Austin

Reduces Stress

Session day is always a little stressful no matter what. You’re juggling getting ready, making sure kids sleep well, and praying no one has a meltdown along the way. I’m a firm believer that kids feed off of your energy- so if Mom or Dad are stressed, so are the kids. 

But imagine waking up on the day of your photoshoot knowing everyone has outfits that coordinate. Or… that you get to walk into my Austin studio in a top knot and yoga pants and be camera ready in an hour. Magic, right?!

Opportunity to Pamper Yourself

I know as Moms we are so busy taking care of others, that we tend to come last. But Mama, you deserve to be pampered and taken care of too. Think of it as a big, well-deserved thank you for all of the love you show your family.

Builds Confidence

Mindset and confidence are huge factors in how you look in photographs. And as women, we tend to be more confident when we feel like our best self. My professional hair and makeup artist will simply enhance your natural beauty in a way that is flattering for the camera.

Stays Put

Gone are the days of sweating all of your makeup off in our Austin, Texas heat! By using airbrush makeup, the hair and makeup artist I use can ensure your makeup won’t waver even on our most humid days.
