Up’Sa Daisy Salon :: Portraits

I’ve fallen in love with Shannon and Suzette’s skill from the very first time I visited UpSa Daisy salon about two years ago. This was the time I was having portrait sessions taken before my Wedding and needed some cute updo’s and pretty makeup. Now, these are my go-to girls whenever I need to look my best!! They did the hair and makeup for my Wedding day and just recently for my brother and sis-in-laws Wedding last month as well. It’s always so nice when I show up to photograph prep on a Wedding day and I see these two girls! Lots of my brides have booked them recently and I couldn’t be happier. They have a natural hand at just accentuating beauty without being over the top.

So Shannon, the owner of UpSa Daisy contacted me about doing a session of the entire salon. I couldn’t be more proud of her and her staff. She has accomplished so much at such a young age. What a beautiful representation of women business owners! Shannon and the girls had some ideas for their shoot. They wanted something indoors, something glam, and an atmosphere that reflected the Salon.

We headed to the International House downtown and took these! Thank you to my sister in law Jennifer for helping me with posing and lighting that afternoon. Couldn’t have done it without her- this was a big group!!! Double dose of Jen Amato that day, HAHA!

Here are some of my favs from their shoot. A little different than my normal photography, but its always nice to step out of my comfort zone!!! We did a mix of group shots and then head shots of each one of the girls! And of course we always need a mix of smiling, serious and laughing photos :)

LOVE!!!So fierce.. huh!!? BEAUTIFUL GIRLS!!!!!!Time for head shots!!Shannon and Suzette…. SISTERS!! Love em!This picture gave me goosebumps while editing. What a group of girls, huh? How amazing is it that they all get to work together at the Salon. So full of life, style and attitude!! Love this pic!!
