Over the years I have come to appreciate the input of others and have relaxed my control over every part of the business. I realised that I needed an assistant to help me on studio shoots, someone who could anticipate my next move and to bounce ideas off and help me to create the sometimes complicated images without getting stressed. I found the perfect person in Teddy, she is the best assistant I could wish for. She is calm and clear headed, reliable and hard working and has the added bonus of keeping me calm. She has been with me now for 18 months I now can’t do without her.
Teddy also now does a good proportion of the editing of the images too so that when we get really busy I can still turn around the images really fast.
Hair and MAkeup
So I resisted the need to bring in a specialist hair and makeup artist to the studio basically because I felt that my home studio wasn’t somewhere someone would want to sit to have their make up done – well yes, I’ve realised now, that it doesn’t matter at all, and people really do want to feel pampered for their session. I met Becky when I had my own hair done for a party and immediately thought that she was perfect for my clients. She can be booked to do either Hair or Makeup or Both before your shoot and has over 10 years experience in the profession and really knows her stuff. See her Instagram posts @beckybeckstarhmua
