HAIR AND MAKEUP
As for hair and makeup, if you choose the professional route here are some recommendations (prices may vary) :
UPSTAIRS GLAMOUR | KAITLIN LEFURGEY

SEN STUDIOS | SUNITA SUMARU
Amazing makeup artists! I’ve shot with them a couple of times and would recommend either Ruth or Sunita. They have a studio south of Whyte ave (In the Planet Organic Building). If you need them to travel to you, just ask for pricing details.
JASMINE MINE-WAI MA
Another wonderful artist. I’ve worked with her before as well. She is mobile and will come to you.
Hair $50 - $100 depending on the style (soft waves on dry hair would be $50)
I've worked with Nickol for FOREVER! She is amazing and will come to you. Please contact directly for pricing.
HOT TIP: Create a pinterest board with makeup/hair ideas that you can share with your MUA. Also, in order to ensure makeup that you’re comfortable with, let the artist know that you would like more of a soft-glam look. If you’ve never used fake lashes before, ask for very natural looking lashes. You want to feel like the most beautiful of yourself for our shoot!

PROPS FOR KAPOW BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS
For brand styled shoots, I recommend bringing props ie: things that include branded materials/colours. In terms of what to bring, my biggest question is always: what is your why? What stories do you want to tell, what problem are you solving and how do you want to engage your audience, to share your kick-ass KAPOW solution with them? What is the outcome you want/ what action would you like them to take? These questions guide purposeful content creation. Depending on what content you want to create, here are some ideas for things to bring to your shoot:
- Coffee cup
- Business cards/Marketing materials
- Crystals/Cards etc
- Nice Pens/Stationary And anything else you can think of!
I suggest thinking of what content you want to create/what story you want to tell and bringing things that complement and align with your brand colours. If you haven’t already, please start a pinterest board, invite me and pin your inspo!
HYDRATE, REST AND ENJOY THE RIDE!
As a Joy Coach + Photographer, it is my intention to help you dial in your courageous confidence and feel your most beautiful and authentic self. I want to capture your KAPOW and your essence. Ensure that you get a good amount of sleep before our shoot. As well, make sure you drink TONS of water! Try to make it a extra self-caring week.
Focus on YOU and feel into the potential of what you want to create in your life and your business. If you can, create the space to meditate and feel into your dreams. This is more than a photoshoot, it is a manifestation session! Together we will pour energy into your hearts truest desires and co-create magic together. Does this sound fun? It will be! The day of our shoot will be time to let loose, own your KAPOW, play, breathe and be. That’s all you need to worry about. I’ll take care of the rest!
To Our Joy!
