About shanna...

From the time Louisa could get her hands on her mother's lipsticks as a child, her fascination with beauty has only magnified. She earned a BA in Fine Art with a painting focus from Centre College, and graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia.
She was trained and certified in Makeup Artistry and Hairstyling at Chic Studios in New York City. In NYC, she studied with leading working makeup professionals to experience the unique challenges that various skin colors, airbrushing, fashion makeup, period makeup, and print/production make-up can bring.

Once you have booked your session, we will contact you and send over our digital magazine. This will help you choose your outfits, give you tips on getting your skin camera ready, etc… 

A few days before your session, after you have picked your wardrobe, I will need you to try everything on and send me a picture of you in each outfit. This will help me choose locations ahead of time. It also ensures that you have tried on everything and that it fits the way you want. 
Don’t forget your accessories! (Jewelry, Shoes, Hats, Scarves etc…) 

-Each session is set with a certain amount of shooting time and wardrobe changes. 
-Of course, we are not going to leave you stranded trying to be America's Next Top Model. We will be there to help you pose and make sure you look your best!
-All of your friends will be able to follow your session on Snap Chat! (unless, of course, you don't want this) 
-After your session we will go through your images and place our favorite on Instagram, Facebook, and even SnapChat!
-Each of our sessions come with a personalized premiere ordering showcase. Anyone involved with the purchasing decision will need to be at this appointment. You will learn more about this in the digital magazine that you will receive after you have booked your session.

Are you ready to schedule your photo shoot?

Our studio is located in the middle of the Highlands Neighborhood in Louisville, KY at 980 Barret Ave. We’re the turquoise building, you can’t miss us!
With the class of 2017 comes our 8th year photographing Louisville’s seniors. Each year we attend many workshops and conventions to make sure we stay current with all of the new trends and fashions.
Unlike many of the other studios around Louisville, we want your images to showcase YOU, to be unique to YOU. Even if your best friend came to us last week, we want your images to be completely different! That isn’t difficult to do around our studio, there are tons and tons of unique locations to photograph within a very short walk. 
Being located in Louisville’s most unique and artsy area definitely has its “perks”!
