The goal of a skilled makeup artist is actually not to change a thing about you.  Professional Hair & Makeup Artists (HMUAs) study how to emphasize a person’s best facial features while disguising anything you don’t love just by applying makeup.  If you love your eyes, that’s what our HMUA will emphasize.  If your lips are your favorite feature, we make sure they are featured.  And if you are not sure what that is, our HMUA can help you with that, too!  She will make the most of your best features, so when you look at your portraits, you look like your own most beautiful self.

Experienced makeup artists know how to style specifically for being photographed.  Flash lighting and the 2-dimensional nature of photography can cause portrait subjects to appear flat.  Contouring techniques and a knowledge of flash lighting allow an HMUA to make you appear natural.

Butterflies can’t see their wings.  They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can.  People are like that as well.

Hair Styling

Dry styling helps you get a salon-fresh blow-out feel and look for your session. A stylist can reach every strand of hair on your head, so you have a complete, consistent hairstyle that’s as full or sleek as you like it. Even difficult hair is no match for a stylist who has been trained to work with all hair types, from thick to fine, smooth to textured, and even mine that grows three sizes at the first hint of humidity. 

A good blowout will last the whole session, and often longer. You won’t have to worry about fly-aways, frizzies, or other hair misbehaviors


hello, i didn’t mean to interrupt your scrolling, i just wanted to say that you’re beautiful

Meet Renee

Meet my go-to HMUA, Renee Locher.  She is the owner and lead artist for Renee Locher Makeup and Hair.  She has worked on sets of all kind, doing makeup and hair for actors and models in commercial and film work. Coming from a performing background, she understands being on both sides of the camera.

She is incredibly talented, and takes the time to understand what each portrait client wants and likes when it comes to their own personal look.  

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.   -Audrey Hepburn
