Sydney was the makeup artist for my daughter's first professional photo shoot. I honestly cannot say enough positive things about this true professional artist. She was top notch from the beginning to the very end. She made my daughter feel super comfortable. She made her look breath taking in a natural way. She is truly an artist and she loves what she does. It shows in the results!
Talented, professional and a pleasure to be around. Highly recommend Sydney as a Make up Artist!
