Hi everyone! My new makeup studio in Cabin John, Maryland, is ready, and I absolutely love it! I saw clients Saturday and Sunday in it, and we just had a blast.
On Saturday, I led a makeup lesson for two trans-women in a demonstration format. I applied makeup to my face, and they copied my technique with my feedback. After that, I took photos of them in our front living room and on the back deck and stairs. So fun! If you’re interested in a session with a friend, just let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll help you choose the best package
My Sunday client has been to see me several times over the past year, and she was ready to meet some other girls in the community. So after her Total Makeover and photoshoot, my wife, Giselle, and I hosted an “outing” experience at our place with three friends for a small cocktail party. If you’re a repeat client and want to meet other girls, let me know and I can arrange an outing on the town or in-home.
Here are photos of my new makeup studio. Watch for my wardrobe and photography studio pics in a later post.
Hi everyone! I’ve updated my website and booking site with my Cabin John, MD, information. I’m super excited to start seeing clients this Friday at my new location. Giselle and I are hard at work setting up the new studio spaces, and I’m impressed with how things are shaping up.
If you have hotels to recommend in Bethesda, upper Northwest DC, or Tyson’s Corner, I’d love to hear them and why they worked well for you. I’d also love to hear your favorite places to dine and grab a drink in Bethesda. My mailing address for money order deposits is still in Alexandria, VA, for now, so that’s intentional, but if you find anything else I need to update, I’d love to hear about it.
I’m so excited to show you all the new spaces and explore my new neighborhood with you all! Stay tuned for info on my open house and birthday party on Nov. 4!
I’m so excited! I’m making a huge upgrade to my makeover and photography studio by consolidating my Alexandria and Baltimore locations and setting up shop in a huge Arts & Crafts house in Cabin John, MD!
This 2700 sq. ft house on 3/4 acre has so many gorgeous areas, inside and out, for natural light photography plus I’ll have room for seamless backgrounds and strobes. I’ll even have a designated area for enjoying my fantasy furniture. I will have free, unlimited off-street parking in my long driveway and a private, discreet, back entrance. Of course, you’re welcome to come up the front walk, enter through the front door, and enjoy time on the porch swing!
And the location is so convenient! I will be right off the I-495 beltway at the Cabin John/American Legion Bridge over the Potomac River and about halfway between Tyson’s Corner Mall (amazing shopping!!!) in Virginia and Bethesda in Maryland.
July 18: Baltimore location closed.
August 20-31: Closed for vacation.
Sept. 11-19: Closed for the move from my Alexandria studio & home to Cabin John, MD. Alexandria location closes.
Sept. 20: Open for business in Cabin John, MD! See you there!
