Doing professional photography of Portland’s most excellent services can be pretty eye-opening–I get a behind-the-scenes look at the painstaking time, care, and detail that goes into what local professionals do in their work. I recently got to work with professional makeup artist and licensed esthetician, Nadia, on photos of her ever-expanding services for Threading and Eyelash Extensions. I’d heard a lot about eyelash extensions over the past few months, and I sort of knew what threading was–semi-embarrassing admission: there was a period back in the day when I actually watched America’s Next Top Model, and there was a contestant makeover that involved threading–but I hadn’t ever seen those services happen in front of me.
I went to The Spa Upstairs and shot with Nadia on-location, and I jumped in at a few different points during the threading and eyelash service, to get some shots of her doing the intensely detailed work. It definitely required a lot of time and a steady hand, but Nadia did an awesome job, and the After shots with the full set of lash extensions showed a major difference.
Nadia’s also a super-talented makeup artist, and she worked her magic on our live model for my First Friday event earlier this month. Definitely make sure to check out her work.
