Hi and welcome back.

One of the most important things to consider when booking a photographer for your shoot, whatever that shoot is, is professional styling.

I recently had the pleasure of working with a new model to me, Alyssa, and Airbrush makeup artist Sallie Gowran of Sallie’s Airbrush Makeup.

Here’s a before shot of Alyssa just moments after she arrived to prepare for her shoot:

And here’s a shot after Sallie worked her magic on Alyssa.  This photo is completely un-retouched and a direct raw to jpeg conversion:

Alyssa did her own hair for the shoot, but that doesn’t exclude your choice of a professional hair stylist to get the best look for you.

The before and after are completely amazing!

That’s it for now.  Till next time, happy shooting.
