Photography session information, sharing and event photos and tips!
I personally do not think that anyone should be tweezing their eyebrows at home. Shaping the brow is best left to an esthetician. We all have a friend who spent too much time in the bathroom and effectively ruined the shape of the brow leaving them looking - a little crazy. I did this myself in High School and it was months before my brows returned to normal. If you've done this to yourself the tutorial below will help you properly reshape and fill in your brows.
If you are having your portrait taken, but have opted not to have your make-up done by a professional please take note *fill in your brows*. It helps define the face enormously! Not only will it look great if you do it correctly, but it will give you a more polished final look in the photo.
I never recommend you do your own make-up for a professional photo. I do think that if you are taking the time to hire someone, you should go "all in" and make sure your make-up is also flawless. The only way to do that is with a certified professional! The best analogy I can come up with if you skip hiring a professional make-up artist for your session is this: Not using a make-up artist for your portrait is like buying a car without tires. You can sit in it and look pretty, but its never going to get you to your final destination!
I think the brow is the most important part of the make-up for photos. Then the eye. If you're apt at your current routine I recommend checking out Kandee Johnson's Youtube channel for more tutorials on make-up application and skin care. She is a professional, and takes her time showing you proper technique and application! And make sure you practice, practice, practice!

I worked with Elle Halls of Nouvelle Design Studio for my business profile picture (used for LinkedIn, email, website, business cards, etc.) and she was amazing! She really listened to what I wanted, and made me a part of the process, stopping many times throughout the shoot to show me how the photos were looking. What I thought was going to be a "business errand/chore" ended up being a lot of fun! I highly recommend using Elle for your photography project.
Excellent experience. Elle was able to coach out the "model" in me and provided many shots I can pick from. She went well above and beyond me expectations and the final product is excellent.
Working with Elle was wonderful! I was doing a fashion shoot and it was so fun! She's very nice, funny, and professional, the shoot went like that! She has a very keen eye and did wonderful work! Very happy with my photos. Thanks, Elle!
I love the photos of myself and my daughter. We were given excellent direction so we could get the best shots. I couldn't be happier with the results! I highly recommend booking a session for any type of photography you are looking for!
