Shea Hollister, of Shea Artistry, has been with me from the beginning of my journey as a full-service photographer. I actually met Shea when she provided hair styling for my wife and I for a session we did for our first anniversary! She gave me her business card during that session and the rest is history. When you book a session with Whitney Collins Photography, Shea will be there to provide THE BEST hair and makeup artistry! She has such a passion for her craft and stays during the session to make sure all clients look and feel their very best from the beginning of their session to the end!
I asked Shea to share a little bit about herself and this is what she had to say!
“My love for hair and makeup began when I was in high school. I had a passion for art in general, which gradually translated into creating makeup looks. Hair styling came shortly after. The best part about this career is making a connection with the client. It’s important to me to help clients understand that makeup and hairstyling are small enhancements to their own natural beauty. The most rewarding part is when we turn the chair around and clients faces light up with excitement! Giving them that time, attention, and the experience means everything.
Makeup and hair are extremely important to portrait sessions. Certain types of lighting (especially studio flash), and retouching all have an effect on makeup and hair. When done correctly by an experienced professional, it will make a world of difference!”
