North Atlanta Fine Art Wedding and Portrait Photographer

When Alyssa Henley, owner of Alyssa Henley Photography, contacted me to schedule a 101 Mentoring session and told me she would like to do a senior shoot for her hands-on experience I was thrilled. Hunter goes to the same church as I and I absolutely adore her (and her family) and I immediately asked her to model for us. Fortunately for us she was available and totally game. đŸ™‚ Thank you Hunter! She is a Senior at Purcell High School and will be graduating this year. She is such a kind-hearted and beautiful young woman. Truly a daughter of God.

Since we had Hunter at our mercy I figured that it would be the perfect opportunity to show you, as the consumer, the client, the difference of every-day makeup and photo shoot makeup. I encourage all my clients to hire someone else to do their hair and make up for them. I do this for multiple reasons. The biggest one though being that makeup generally shows up much lighter in pictures than it does in real-life and therefore requires stronger application. With highlighting and contouring and way more blush than you would generally wear! LOL So, I asked Hunter to show up with her own makeup the way she would normally do it. (Mind you…..as you can clearly see this girl is gorgeous no matter how much or how little makeup she has on!) And after a few shots I redid her makeup and gave her some soft curls.

Here’s a side-by-side view between the looks to really show off the difference:

Thanks Hunter for being such a great sport and fabulous model for Alyssa and I. I am very proud of you and am honored to call you my friend! Go show BYUI what Oklahoma has to offer. đŸ˜€

And because we all love Bloopers and behind the scenes footage…. LOL

(Hunter is an avid Golfer. Can you tell?? hehe)

Had the need to test a little bit the other day for some 20s glam. The 20s style if perfect for a Portrait Couture session if you ask me. It literally screams femininity, sensuality and a hint of sexiness. đŸ™‚
