Spotlighting our in studio hair stylist, Tara Payne

I never would have believed the difference having an in studio hair stylist would mean to our clients and the luxury experience we represent, until I seen the magical results of it. At each consultation my team and I give the option for an add on for hair and makeup and for our boudoir sessions we include it in our session fee as we truly believe it's the start of the experience. Picture day can be stressful and our goal is to help take the stresses away, having hair and makeup done is a great way to help relieve the stress and build confidence. I have watched women walk in, tired from the stresses of life, work, kids and everything in between and after having their hair and makeup done walk out with a new pep in their step, a new twinkle in their eye, a new attitude about life..and it all flows so beautifully into the portraits we create. The confidence radiates out of the picture, the laughter is more, the smiles are bigger and it all makes me giddy inside! I have an amazing team and I am so very thankful to have Tara as part of it.

Tara has been a licensed cosmetologist for over 12 years, she married her high school sweetheart and best friend, together they have 3 beautiful girls that keep them extremely busy. Since Tara was a little girl she loved makeup up and creating beautiful hair for her barbie dolls and later for her friends. She is a very hard worker and has a passion for her job, especially making women feel confident and beautiful.

" I love my clients and the relationships I have built. The smile on their face when they are in my chair and listening to their stories makes me feel like they are a part of my family" - Tara
