?Meet Joanna, the Mobile Makeup Maven.
While new to the industry, it quickly became apparent that Joanna really knows her stuff. She was a?consummate?professional from the minute she walked in the door. Friendly and easy to work with, Joanna worked her magic like an experienced pro. Watching her work, I couldn’t believe she wasn’t an artist with years of experience under her belt. She worked quickly and achieved amazing results.
Not only did Joanna handle makeup duties, but later in the day, I asked her to step in front of the cameras. You wouldn’t have guessed that she had no experience as a model. She took direction very well and clearly enjoyed her time at the event.
Professional Portrait Photography
As Joanna worked, I began documenting the process. As I said, she was a professional all the way and I wanted to capture that as she applied the makeup to Gianna. I love photographing people while they perform their duties and this case was no exception. Truth be told, it was fascinating, watching the change in Gianna’s appearance. Joanna wasn’t phased as I snapped away, capturing images of her as she performed her work. She did an amazing job and I know I’m not the only photographer that attended the event that is looking forward to working with her again.
And a fun little side note – after the event, I sent Joanna a friend request on Facebook, so I’d be able to get in touch with her more easily for potential jobs. Once we were connected, I discovered that she is family to a friend of mine from my days at Seton Hall. Small world, huh?
