Illuminate Beauty Studio :: Branding Photography Session :: Frederick, Maryland

High-quality and authentic images play an important role in delivering the personality of your brand and business to the world. On social media and on websites, you have a split second to make an impression- imagery that tells the story of you and your business take it to the next level.

Kaytlin and her business, Illuminate Beauty Studio here in Frederick, Maryland is a favorite client of mine. Kaytlin is the sole proprietor of Illuminate Beauty Studio. She has been a stylist for 13 years but broke out on her own a few years ago.

She recently moved her business into a (beautiful!) new space where she focuses on custom hair color and body waxing. In her own words:

“Being behind the chair allows me to feed my love for not only playing with hair, formulating a custom color, and changing people’s looks but also helping people to feel more confident! I love to share trade secrets and help you to recreate and maintain your look at home.

After being a stylist for 2 years I went back to school for Esthetics where I discovered a whole other part of the industry…Body Waxing!! I love to help people feel super comfortable while receiving such a vulnerable feeling service. I am truly in this industry to help people look and feel their absolute best”

Kaytlin needed images of her beautiful new space, of her in action, and also some headshots that showed off her personality. She uses these images on her website, in her booking software, and heavily in her social media. I love working with Kaytlin! She also does my hair and is just an amazing artist!
