3 Reasons To Get Professional HMUA For Portraits. As a busy Mom of three, I know how stressful family portraits can be. Outfits to choose, order and buy for everyone, session day stress getting everyone ready then putting myself last leaving very little time for hair and make-up. It just wasn’t as easy and stress-free as I’d like it to be. So as the photographer, I have decided to do something about that! I’ve shared before how I offer a client wardrobe of dresses for Moms, shirts for Dads and lots of cute options for littles. But adding professional hair and make-up as an additional option for Moms truly enhances the portrait experience. My goal is to help all Moms stop the frustration and stress on picture day while making sure you feel pampered, beautiful and the best version of yourself!

My hair and make-up artist, Elizabeth Bukta, is here with the top 3 reasons to get professional HMUA for your portraits!

How beautiful is she?!

1. Enhances your beautiful features.
Makeup adds the perfect finishing touch to pictures, even if you do not typically wear much makeup.  A professional can use certain types of makeup with a technique that photographs well.  With a professional you are able to achieve a polished look that highlights your features, while enhancing your natural beauty. You also want the hair and makeup to accent your wardrobe, and theme of the shoot. A makeup and hair stylist can help you tie all these factors together for the perfect look!

2. Increases your confidence
Hiring a professional on the day of your shoot, takes the pressure off getting ready.  They can help you achieve a flawless look that you may not be able to master on your own. Also, a professional on set during your photography experience allows for touch ups, and style suggestions that result in getting that perfect pose! When you feel good about yourself you feel more relaxed, allowing for your natural self to shine through.

3. Saves time and decreases stress
We all know there are some busy moms out there that could use a helping hand! Hiring a makeup artist/hair stylist can alleviate some of that photo day anxiety and anticipation.  Having a professional saves time and stress so that mom can get ready without worry and rush. Even moms-to-be that may not be feeling their best can benefit from some photo day pampering!
