Sometimes our dreams can come to fruition when we least expect it—even during a year as unprecedented as 2020.
While Covid had us all on lockdown, I started long distance running to channel my thoughts and avoid losing my MIND from cabin fever. About a mile from my house is a cute cottage that had a FOR RENT sign on the door. I passed it daily. One day, on a whim, I called the owner to inquire, but left the idea quiet for some time.
Fast forward and Jenn Powell and I were talking about our dreams. I'll never forget it. She said, "You know, my goal is to open a studio at some point." That was it! I said, "I actually just called a place, why don't we go see it together?"
Jenn and I have partnered on more branding, headshot and boudoir photoshoots than I can count. We share an aesthetically driven eye for posing, colors and lighting and a passion for helping others look and feel their best.
We found that women appreciated having a one-stop-shop experience to capture their important moments, and naturally evolved to give them just that through joint makeup and photography packages.
It only made sense that we someday would share a studio together. The process took some time, but here we are!
Jenn and I are so proud to announce that our shared studio is open for business at 1379 Timberlane Road in Tallahassee.
Downstairs, I offer bridal, event and photoshoot makeup; spray tanning; private makeup lessons and group classes; retail beauty products; and events like foundation matching.
Upstairs, Jenn offers professional headshots, custom branding photography, family pictures, boudoir portraits and high school senior pictures, all in an airy room full of natural light and modern backdrops.
Our studio has a changing room, waiting area and spacious patio for events and photoshoots, and those who want hairstyling as an add-on can have our neighboring salon, Cozy Grove Hair Salon, come to them for on-site styling!
I couldn't imagine this venture with anyone else. From the moment I started doing Jenn's makeup for the Miss Florida pageant, we had a undeniable friendship connection. Jenn is a mom, a wife, a hard-working entrepreneur, a no-excuses boss babe, and an amazing photographer.
We are so ecstatic to welcome you into our studio for all your beauty and photography needs. Come see us for an experience you won't forget!
