I’m super excited for today’s post because I’m telling you guys all about my experience with Aesthetic Distance. Eliza, the founder of AD, is an accomplished photographer and makeup artist based in Baltimore, MD. After graduating from the University of Maryland, she got her masters in fine arts with a concentration in photography and graphic design. She studied makeup artistry at the Won Lee International School of Aesthetics and then attended the Make Up For Ever Academy. For our collaboration, Eliza directed and the lovely Courtney McCormick did my hair and make-up.
Courtney and Eliza epitomize professionalism, and on top of it all, they’re smart, beautiful and fun! You’ll feel totally comfortable working with them, and I guarantee that you’ll love your photos if you decide to book them for portraits. I still can’t get over how incredibly talented they both are. Eliza’s super articulate so her direction’s easy to follow – she helped me execute my poses by instructing and demonstrating. She also has an impeccable eye so lighting and backdrops are always on point. Courtney, on the other hand, could prettify a rock! She totally transformed my face – I felt like I was ready to walk the red carpet!
Now, before I leave you guys, I need to talk to y’all about one last thing: Eliza’s blog! Not only is she an accomplished make-up artist and photographer, she’s a killer blogger. She writes about all things fashion and beauty, and she often features local talents and businesses in the DMV. From interviews to helpful how-tos, you’ll be completely hooked.
