The Studio journey began inside my home dining room in 2009. After working in film and TV most of my young adult years as a hobby, and pageants throughout my 20's and early 30's I wanted to continue the passion I had found doing hair and makeup as a pageant director. I picked up my college camera for the first time in 2008 and decided it was time to re-learn everything. At 32 years old, I had no idea how impactful the first bridal hair and makeup would be for me or the first shoot would be on my new career.


I did makeup and hair for weddings for the first 4 years of the business winning "Richmond's Best Makeup Artist" and a Bridal "A" Lister, and have been featured in multiple national and international publications for hair and makeup and photography. 

Continuing to grow the hair and makeup business that began as big dream has allowed me to provide local jobs for over 20 women 10 years later as artists, wax specialists, and cosmetologists.​

This company is such a huge passion for me, and truly represents my heart and soul. Each client’s experience with us matters to me so much, that every single thing in our space has been deliberately placed and handpicked to convey a feeling of uniqueness. From the decor, to customer service, I want each client to feel like a personal friend of mine walking through our doors. 

I feel privileged and honored to have a space that allows me to live my dream. I am blessed to work alongside such an incredibly talented group of individuals who allow me to lead them on a daily basis. Lastly, I am grateful and humbled by our clientele, who have made this whole dream possible. Our clients are what makes us who we are, and it is as simple as that.
