Why Professional Hair & Make Up is Important : Northern VA Senior Portrait Photographer

Every senior who contacts me regarding their senior portrait experience has the opportunity to have their hair styled and make up applied by a professional hair and make up artist for their photo session. Although it is not required, I highly recommend having a professional do your hair and make up. Here are the top six reasons why:

6. Everyday make up will often not show up through all the filters from a high definition camera. My professional make up artist uses highly pigmented make up and contouring to enhance your natural beauty that my high def camera will capture.

5. My make up artist can give you a flawless appearance and use extra products that keeps the make up where it’s supposed to be and will not sweat off during the course of the shoot.

4. Found a picture of a hair style or make up look you’d like? Bring it with you to your shoot! My make up artist is talented and can recreate it on you.

3. My make up artist has years of experience and education in her field. She is able to pick out the colors that will work with your skin tone.

2. Having someone else handle your hair and make up takes the stress off of you to get camera ready. Why go through that added stress and hassle when you don’t have to?

1. This is YOUR year. Your only senior year. You deserve to look and feel beautiful and confident. Don’t settle for anything less.

Need more convincing? Check out these before & after photos of my most recent shoot with one of my senior models, Emily. Of course she’s beautiful without a hint of make up on, but see how the final images just pop making Emily even more drop dead gorgeous?!?! Jordan of Glam To Go was the awesome hair and make up artist for this photoshoot. To see more of Jordan’s work, go check out and like her Facebook fan page here!

You remember Sam, right? The gorgeous red head who also happens to be one of my 2015 senior models? Last time you saw her was for the Heather Chesky Senior Model Photoshoot back in March.

Summer Fashion Trends for Senior Photography : Northern VA Senior Portrait Photographer

School is out for summer and with all that extra time and sunshine, it is the perfect time to schedule your senior photos! If you haven’t checked out my other post that gives you 8 reasons why you should book your senior pics for the summer time, be sure to check that out.

So now that you have booked a session (or you wanting to contact me about availability), one of the fun things we get to do together is pick out the perfect outfits for your photoshoot. Here is a sneak peak taken straight from my Senior Magazine that I will be launching in just a few weeks which will be full of everything you and your parents need to know about your ultimate senior portrait experience with Heather Chesky Photography. The particular pages below will help you create some beautiful outfits using the hottest summer fashion trends of 2014, but it’s only a taste of all that goodness that is to come in that mag!!!

If you need to go shopping, I highly recommend going to Maurices in Winchester, VA. They were the amazing store that provided beautiful clothing for the HCP Senior Model Shoot earlier this year. The girls that work there are super helpful and know a ton about fashion and dressing for your body type! So go shopping there and tell ‘em I say HI!

Let me know here if you still have a fashion/clothing question or if you are ready to book your senior portrait photos!

Hailey : Manassas, VA Senior Photos : Northern VA Senior Photographer

You may remember Hailey from a few months ago. She’s one of my class of 2015 senior models who attends Westfield Highschool in Chantilly, VA. I loved having the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous high school senior once again! If you missed her studio model session, be sure to head over here to check that out. This time though, we headed out to a lesser known area of Manassas Battlefield in Manassas, VA. Hailey brought along her prom dress for a few photos too! Doesn’t that coral dress pop against the greenery!?!?

Hailey and her mom opted to invest in a custom designed senior album. These albums are actually pretty popular among my senior clients. Not only is an album the perfect way to showcase dozens of your senior session photos all in one place, it is also the perfect thing to have out at your graduation party (thinking ahead) so all your friends and family can peruse through and gawk at the photo gorgousness. Besides, your mom and dad will cherish flipping through those album pages once you go off to college. To give you a better idea of the album, scroll down a little and you’ll see a few collages taken right out of Hailey’s beautiful album.

Some sample album pages….
