Beto & Mebe Co. / by Victoria Lemos

Finally, I can reveal what's been secret for about a month now! Earlier this summer I was asked to take headshots for a couple who have decided to start a business together offering makeup & hair services. Beto does hair, Mebe does makeup, and combined, they create stunning, classy, yet edgy looks for a variety of different events. 

This shoot was definitely something new for me. I was familiar with headshot work and have even used my paper backdrop a few times but this was something I was excited for because I was working with a hair & makeup team for the very first time. I specialize in outdoor, natural light portrait photography so I was thankful for an overcast afternoon on the day we decided to shoot. The sun was hidden behind clouds which provided a beautiful even lighting situation for these portraits. All in all, I used my Canon 85mm 1.2 lens, a simple silver stool, my Savage Universal seamless paper backdrop, a stand for the backdrop, and a light diffuser to diffuse any harsh sunlight that managed to peak through the clouds (which thankfully, wasn't often). 

Beto & Mebe were awesome to work with that day and made the entire shoot a really enjoyable time. The shoot was pretty much a Beto & Mebe Co grand opening as well, with snacks, balloons, pizza, and lots of music. Here is a photo recap of that day.
