Whether you're coming to see a love-soaked family or lifestyle newborn session, glimpses of beautiful Charleston, or my favorite local restaurant and coffee shops - I am excited to share a little piece of my heart with you.
One of my favorite ways to help busy mamas prepare for their family or maternity sessions is helping book pre-session pampering! I think we all deserve a little TLC, right?!
Professional hair and makeup makes such a big difference in your photos. Hair and makeup artists are trained in techniques to make your features pop and hair look its best. Not to mention, it takes some of the pressure off and makes you feel more confident!
Think about it… you’ve got dresses from the Client Wardrobe delivered the day before your session. Your dresses arrive steamed and ready to wear – so it’s basically your own personal try on session. Then you get to relax and be pampered by ladies who know exactly how to make you feel your best.
Just show up, they make you feel beautiful (because you are!) and then we take some pretty pictures!
As an added bonus? Airbrush makeup is sweat resistant and waterproof! Your makeup will hold up against the Charleston humidity and playing with toddlers during your session!
For this reason, I got in touch with Kacie, the owner of Lashes & Lace in Downtown Charleston. She is as sweet as they come, and offered a $50 credit toward my clients’ hair and makeup services.
During your session planning process, I will happily reach out to Lashes & Lace to book your appointment for you. This ensures you receive the credit toward your services.
Allowing me to book your appointment for you also takes away the guessing and back and forth communication about what time is best for your appointment, where you need to go, etc.
I will set up your booking, confirm the day before for you, and provide visuals for what you can show your hair and makeup artist for inspiration. I do everything I can to save you the work!
Your appointment will be at Lashes & Lace‘s beautiful Broad Street location – but they will also do on location by request.
Come to your appointment with completely dry hair (preferably one day old) and a clean face with no moisturizer or products applied.
It’s also helpful to show your hair and makeup artist inspiration photos – whether its what I send you or some you’ve found yourself!
Your makeup application will include airbrush makeup and lashes.
I always suggest requesting a half up hairstyle or at the very least having the front pieces pinned back. This keeps your hair out of your face while cuddling with kids and helps if your beach session is windy.
For makeup, the biggest differences are lashes, blush, and brows that are filled in but still natural. Stick to light or neutral lipstick.
Also full disclosure – I don’t receive any kickback for booking clients with Lashes & Lace– I just genuinely have found them wonderful to work with for my clients!
