Farewell to my Makeup Artist: her Elegant Portrait Session

Parting Gift

The graceful, beautiful and talented Gayathri Menon, who I had the pleasure of working with in countless photo shoots. This is her beautiful portrait session. After years of watching her give my clients some amazing makeovers I asked her if she would like to do her own shoot with me. It was my farewell gift to her because I was about to leave Singapore. Although no stranger to modeling herself, I wanted Gayathri to feel like the center of attention and to have some gorgeous portraits of herself.

Always professional in her work and appearance Gayathri exudes a timeless elegance as well as a calm professionalism. She puts any client at ease with her light-hearted conversation and gives them her full attention at all times. These qualities are all highly appreciated when giving women their dream photo shoot and makeover. It makes them feel confident that they’re in good hands and helps them to relax and enjoy their own portrait session.

We began Gayathri’s photo shoot with a very natural daytime look and flowed through several glamorous outfits. She did her own makeup and hair, choosing the perfect looks to complement her outfits. Having worked together on so many shoots she knew exactly how I worked and followed my posing direction easily.

Gayathri is a dancer so it was only natural that we would finish the portrait session with some images of her doing a few twirls. We had an excellent shoot incorporating many different looks but the dancing series was my favorite. I think it captures Gayathri’s elegance and grace just perfectly. Afterwards she said, “The final images keep amazing me. Each series is so different and so is the mood. If anyone is considering a photo shoot with Amber I would say ‘Go for it. You Deserve It!'”
