I truly enjoy Photo Shoots and Creative Projects! More than that, I enjoy the Creative Process and working with people to Visually Communicate. With a history in Fashion Design, Creating Custom Pieces, & Wardrobe Styling; I believe that when the elements of Hair, Makeup, & Wardrobe are working together, the outcome is stronger and communicates clearer even if these elements aren’t the focus of the project.

CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS

I am happy to come and collaborate with you.

I am never short on ideas and love on-the-spot creative problem solving. You will get the most out of my talents when I am brought in at the planning stage. My work is all about the details, forethought, clear communication, tangible steps, and pouring in my best to get the best outcome for you.

Let’s Talk!

15 min - Complimentary

Ask me your questions! This is an appointment you can book online. Do you have an idea you want quick feedback on? Do you want to discuss my participation in your project? This complimentary appointment sets aside 15 minutes for us to talk. (This can also be used as a request for me to call and discuss things over the phone.)

CREATIVE SERVICES

Have a project that you need help fleshing out? Need guidance or a sounding board as you go through the creative process? Want to enter a competition but don’t know where to begin?

I love working with and supporting other artists, stylists and people with creative endeavors. Let me help you take things from the idea realm to the physical realm. I am all about planning, forethought, clear communication, tangible steps and pouring in your best to get the best outcome. I’m used to working with a budget and love helping others create ways to keep costs low without sacrificing quality.

I’m honest and encouraging. It can be hard as artists to find people willing to give positive critique. I can help you analyze the design elements and find direction for any needed changes.

 

My Creative Consulting can be a one time meeting and mood board, multiple check-ins throughout the project, or the fully invested role of Creative Director-- whatever you need.

A Creative Consultation is $50 for up to 2 hours of discussion, after that the price will be customized based on the needs of the project.

 

CREATIVE CONSULTING

Whether the need is for wearable, on-trend street styles; event updos; concept or character-supporting styles; edgy, fashion-forward styles; vintage or era hair; avant garde hair; or showstoppers; I am happy to come and collaborate with you.

I am never short on ideas and love on-the-spot creative problem solving. You will get the most out of my talents when I am brought in at the planning stage.

EDITORIAL/SESSION HAIR STYLING

My first love.  Being introduced to editorial shoots through my fashion design, I instantly fell for the energy and magic of “shoot day”.

I love: Selecting the right clothing and accessories to pull off the desired look and feel; Balancing the presence of skin to fabric, layers, colors, proportions and textures; Keeping a keen eye out for fit, movement, folds, lines and silhouettes created; and Caring about models’ having what they need to do their jobs well.

Though I have a deep respect for the classics and simple, functional styles-- I am always absorbing what is happening currently in fashion, beauty & barbering and it informs my work. My personal style is Vintage Modern-- I love pairing unexpected things that really shouldn’t go together or are a bit ugly on their own, but look great when put together. I am happy to offer style perspective or adapt to a set style preference.

I am good at working within a budget and with all body types. Again, you will get the most out of my talents when I am brought in at the planning stage. I am all about the details, forethought, clear communication, tangible steps, and pouring in my best to get the best outcome. After our initial discussion, I will provide a mood board and garment suggestions for review before sourcing begins.

 

Starting Rate:

Half-day (2-4 hr) $150,

Full-day (5- 8 hrs) $300;

These rates are for wardrobe styling for 1-3 models, yet don’t include the cost of renting/purchasing the wardrobe, and will be customized depending on the needs of the project.

I am skilled in designing, pattern-making, draping, and re-invention. I enjoy collecting and learning new techniques for manipulating mediums, whether it is fabric, hair...metal, clay, or whatever.

 

I believe the future of fashion is in re-invention -- responding to available materials and imaginatively re-contextualizing them into wearable pieces. This can also help reduce costs for wardrobe sourcing.

 

My work is known for bold design decisions balanced with well considered organic details. I apply a critical eye to craft,  with an attention to lines, folds, colors, patterns, textures, and proportions. I am happy to collaborate and help your concepts come to life.

 

My Custom Creation Rates are very dependent on the needs of the project and will be proposed after our initial discussion.

 

All Consultations and Meetings are Complementary and I am open to working out deals/trades with local shops, models, photographers, and artists.

CUSTOM WARDROBE/ACCESSORY CREATION

I am not currently offering Makeup Services, yet I have connections with some amazing Makeup Artists that I can bring into the project if needed.
