Brand Photography for Beauty Brand, Dulce’s Esthetics in Houston Texas
One of my favorite things about being a brand photographer is that sometimes your vendors become your clients and vice versa. And sometimes, those vendors start as neighbors.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dulce Turrubiartea, of Dulce’s Esthetics since we met as neighbors during the pandemic. She was promoting her lash extension services through our community app and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try lash extensions.
Now, 3 years later, her lash services have grown into a full-service esthetics salon that includes brow services, permanent makeup, and permanent jewelry. Dulce is a true entrepreneur, growing her skills and her business to new heights with every passing day.
Though we have worked together on brand photography before, this session was a bit different, moving away from the lifestyle aesthetic of our previous sessions, into a more commercial vibe to showcase her lash accessories and permanent makeup products.
Her inspiration for this shoot came from a fellow lash artist as well as a lipstick ad featuring Selena Gomez.
Commercial beauty photography isn’t a genre I get to indulge in often, so I was beyond excited to capture some close-up portraits and play with my off-camera flash in the studio.
We shot all of these images on a white backdrop and colored them to match her brand in post. Once you learn how to change a solid color backdrop in Photoshop it’s all downhill from there. I love working on projects that allow me to learn new techniques, no matter how basic they may be.
Dulce is currently working on expanding her small-business and has plans to incorporate even more amazing perks and services for her already loyal customer base. It’s no wonder why she has grown into one of Houston’s most loved estheticians.
