It was a honor and privilege to create some engagement memories for Laura and Dylan. They are such a wonderful couple, work well together, and have such great respect for each other. I was a treat to get to know them!! I've been talking with a wonderful Hair and Make-up Artist (HMUA), named Janis Lozano. We had her come in to do a little bit of before and after work with Laura and Dylan so we can share both their wonderful images and a little more information on why you might want to have Janis as part of your photo session.
One of the things I like about Janis is that while she has the skills to do just about anything, she has the skills to be subtle. Her goal and my goal mesh in that she just enhances your natural beauty and makes the day just a little more fun and special with a little bit of a spa flair. Janis is a seasoned professional and a wonderful person. From her bio here: http://www.janislozano.info and click on the "About" tab. An excerpt on why I like her style:
Be yourself and wear what works for you.
Enhance your best features and look natural doing it.
The rest should be fun, after all... "IT'S JUST MAKEUP!"
Let us know if you want to incorporate makeup into your session!
For the before and after images, we didn't want the typical horrible light and horrible pose as the before so Laura came in with her make-up done typically and we made a few nice images of the two of them. The after pictures were their favorites of course. The little bit of makeup accented her cheek bones and a lip-stick to accent their colors just made things pop a little bit more.
