Boudoir + Glamour Photography Michelle Hayes Studio NYC

I’ve just added a new gallery to my portfolio because I want people to see the amazing transformations in my sessions. Professional Hair + Makeup is included in all my Boudoir + Glamour packages because I feel it is such an important part of the whole experience. Plus, I don’t want people scrambling to find the right hair + makeup person as it can be challenging. Also, without my talented makeup/hair artists I really can’t do what I do. It’s just hair and makeup you say? Au contraire! Let me break it down for you…

When you first book your session with me, whether it be a Boudoir or Glam session, we have a pre-consultation which includes a chat about your hair and makeup. I ask you how you want to look and offer suggestions. I will also direct you to my Pinterest page where I have many examples of hair and makeup looks. Though most of the women I work with don’t go for a theme or an elaborate look, but opt for something that’s basically them, but enhanced. If you have no idea of what you want, don’t worry. My trained artists are brilliant at enhancing your own beauty perfectly suited for either Boudoir or Glamour. 

Once you get in the chair and the process starts you will begin to relax immediately. It’s such a pampering experience and I’ve chosen only the best artists with the softest touch to work with. My favorite part is when it’s time to apply the false eyelashes! One thing that I’ve noticed is that EVERYONE loves getting false eyelashes applied and yes they are included! So many women have never even worn false eyelashes so it’s a real treat. It also makes a huge difference in camera. Your eyes will pop! 

Once the makeup is complete and the hair styled you will be amazed by the transformation. I believe this is the point where women are truly ready for the session. They’ve seen how awesome they look and they can’t wait to get into wardrobe. And these women, who never believed they could get in front of the camera and take a beautiful pic, are now seeing themselves in a different light. There’s something about seeing yourself in a different way that lights up something inside you, which then gets mirrored back out. I see it every time. And this is when I simply pick up my camera to document all this beauty.

To quote one of my favorite transformation stylist Ms. Stacy London (of the much acclaimed “What Not To Wear”)…

“If you can see yourself in a different way, then you can believe yourself in a different way.”

And who knows more about changing the outside to change the inside, to change to outside, other than Stacy & Clinton? They manage to pull it off with each fashion-impaired guest every time. EVERY TIME. 

Have a look through my new Before + After gallery which will be updated more frequently as more and more women get to experience this pampering and self-confidence boosting experience.
