When you are investing in a professional photographer, you want to make sure that the images look their absolute best. Professional hair + makeup artists are TRAINED to do hair + makeup so that it photographs well. While your makeup may look AMAZING in person, it can look completely different on-camera, and these professionals are trained to know the difference! They will conceal spots you don’t like, contour your face so it looks the best at every angle, use colors that compliment your skin to make it look flawless, make your eyes POP with false lashes + shadows, manicure your eyebrows to perfection and more!

There are soo many reasons I include hair + makeup in almost all of my packages! Not only do I want this to be a luxury experience for you, but professional makeup makes such a big difference in the quality of your photos. 
Let’s talk about why it can be such a big game-changer for your experience:


I want your maternity session to be a relaxing and stress-free experience. Trying to do your hair and makeup by yourself can make things even harder. Professional camera equipment is designed to pick up every little detail in an image (even details that the eye can’t see) so hiring a professional makeup artist is the best way to go.


I don’t ever want my mamas to feel like their portrait session is just simply “taking pictures”, I want it to be an EXPERIENCE. So, if you are spending an hour being pampered + beautified, the entire experience has already started on a good note! If my mamas arrive flustered or stressed after trying to get ready themselves, it can affect the entire experience, including the way you look in photographs! I can tell you, my clients are always so happy with their makeup services. I use some of the best local makeup artists in the area and have even used them for myself! 


Here is a list of amazing artists that I use in the Fredericksburg area.

Don't neglect the nails

And one last tip!! In all of the chaos of maternity session prep... don’t forget to pamper your nails! During your shoot, a lot of the poses we do will have your hands on your belly and in the frame, so make sure that your nails look just how you want! Try to avoid any chipped polish or crazy patterns. French manicures, light/natural colors and even nails with no color at all photograph best!!
