Newborn Shoots


Newborn Mommies are usually so focused on their new bundle of joy in those first couple of weeks, that they neglect themselves a little.. So why not treat yourself with a bit of makeup & hair styling to look your best in those special photographs with your special little person.

While Airbrush MakeUp is still a relatively “new” concept here in South Africa, and especially Cape Town, it has been used for over 30 years and is becoming increasingly more popular due to the rise in HD cameras that show every single detail.

This is why I prefer to create a flawless “canvas” with Airbrush foundation, which not only looks great in photographs, but also has a much better staying power than traditional foundations.

The Airbrush foundation that I use is from KRYOLAN.

Their color-true products stand up on stage and on camera, even under HD lighting and filming conditions, and are very long-lasting, yet still comfortable to wear.
The formula is highly pigmented and color-intense, so a little goes a long way, and because you use less product, it looks and feels more natural, while still giving the necessary coverage.

It is applied with and airbrush compressor, which sprays the foundation onto the skin in a fine mist, giving an even and flawless finish.

KRYOLAN also refuses to test their products on animals, so no Kryolan product has ever been tested on an animal.

I also offer individual eyelash clusters application, or just lash & brow tints (for the more conservative ladies) together with brow shaping, as these small touches make a huge difference to the final look of your makeup application, but is often neglected or forgotten.

I am based in Bloubergrandt and will travel to all surrounding areas (Wellington, Paarl, Franschoek, Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Strand, Tableview/Melkbosstrand, Northern/Southern suburbs, etc.)

Prices range between : R400 (MakeUp Only) – R750 – (MakeUp & Hair Styling)

This dark haired beauty had some intense brown eyes, which I defined with matching earthy tones. And her short hair was perfect for the ‘cherub curls’ and flower crown look.
