Sugarskull themed portrait shoot with professional MUA | Sophie Battersby

I was commissioned to do a portrait shoot, that broke from the norm with a bit of a twist. Chris hired a professional make up artist (MUA), to create a sugar skull design to make up his Spanish wife in the style of 'Del Dia De Los Muertos' (Day of the Dead). 

The whole make-up and hair process took around 3 hours to complete and the end results were absolutely fantastic, I captured the entire process to tell the story, finishing with a set of portrait images. One of which Chris then selected to have tattooed onto his chest...

The MUA of the day was Sophie Battersby and I would have no hesitation in recommending her. I've actually worked alongside her at a wedding, she did amazing work on the bridal party...

So let's see the story told in images, firstly the make-up:

Nice...., let's move onto the hair:

Lastly, a few with hair & make-up completed for full effect:

I'm sure you'll agree from the final results that Sophie has some mad skills...

I look forward to working with her again at some point in the near future!
