​​​Wardrobe, Hair, and Makeup

The right clothing, hair, and makeup can make the difference between portraits that you like and portraits that you LOVE! I'll work with you on clothing selection, to make sure that your outfits are flattering and suit the location of your shoot. 

If you would like to have your hair and/or makeup professionally styled, just let me know and I'll refer you to my favorite hair and makeup artist (cost not included in session fee).

Where Will We Shoot?

We have so many amazing outdoor locations here on the central coast! I'll work with you to choose a great spot for your shoot whether you have a specific idea in mind or no clue about where to shoot. I have a special Locations Gallery that I share with my senior clients with example images from some of my favorite spots. And I'm always up for trying a new location if you have an idea.

Want to shoot at two locations? I'm happy to add a second location and an additional hour of shooting to your session for $125.
