Sometimes fate steps in and delivers a magic key that unlocks a treasure chest of 24 carat inspirational gold. That is how I look at my extreme good fortune of meeting Jackie.
Jackie is an extremely talented Professional Hair & Make Up Artist with over 20 years of experience in her field. She owns Mark of Elegance Salon & Day Spa in Millerstown. She is also regularly on set as a Hair & Make Up Artist & Stylist for Commercials, Plays and other Productions. She also has 4 children and exudes one of the most awesome positive personalities I have had the pleasure to meet!
Her work and her presence is sheer magic. It is amazing to see the rise in the level of confidence in my Clients after she is done with them. I really could go on and on….
So as of October I have started recommending her to all of my clients for their Photo Sessions and to my delight the response has been AWESOME!
So Jackie came out a week and a half ago to work her magic on Erin’s Senior Session and I really wanted to share a behind the scenes glimpse of her doing her thang!
Jackie evens out skin tone with air brush foundation. Yes you hear about “being air brushed” but this is the real thing!
For Erin who doesn’t normally wear make up (or only very little), it was important to keep a more natural subtle look.
Erin also has naturally curly hair which has proven to often be unruly for her. Jackie tamed her mane right down and did this amazingly romantic updo which you will see when I reveal Erin’s Sneak Peeks tomorrow!
Here is a Before & After, no retouching on my end.
Another thing I adore about Jackie is that she is a goldmine of helpful styling tips, Clients will learn so much about hair & make up and even I always learn something new everytime I see her.
I can’t even begin to express the difference in having professional hair & makeup done prior to professional photos being taken. In terms of percentage I’d say it would make 100% – 500% difference in final look. (But with Jackie I’d say 200% – 1000%!!!!) If you are interested in hiring the incredibly talented Jackie for an upcoming Photo Shoot with us or for your Wedding please contact us.
Photo Shoot pricing rates range from $60-$100 for 1 look. Add $25 for the privelidge to batt false lashes =)
