I entered into the world of photography after working as a Hair and Makeup Artist in LA for many years. I’ve worked with many, many photographers, and have been able to take all the best practices from each in order to get you the best photographs you’ve ever had. I am a people person and love to converse, collaborate and connect with every client that walks into my studio. From wardrobe, hair and makeup, posing, and retouching, I will take care of you from the beginning of the shoot all the way to the end. I shoot both studio and natural light, thus we have unlimited options when designing your shoot! I would love to talk with you about what you need, and how I can help you.
I want to help you get headshots that will knock your agent and manager’s socks off. I guide you through your casting and branding, wardrobe selection, effortless posing, image selection and retouching. Let’s get you images that get you in the room!
I love working with kids. We play games, laugh and will get your son or daughter images their agent and manager will LOVE. I’ll help you from the beginning till the end of the shoot. Making sure your actor has the best photos that will get them called in.
Having professional pictures taken can be a daunting task; from picking out the wardrobe to doing your hair and makeup to tilting your head just right to putting the finishing touches on the photos. With Light and Shine, ALL of that is taken care of for you. You just show up and have a great time! Mary is very professional, insanely talented AND she knows what makes a great photo. She gives good direction which eases your nerves. The fact that you’re comfortable and enjoying yourself will result in fantastic photos.
