Clients relax in the Old-Montreal studio where a private boudoir dressing room welcomes them to unwind before their photoshoot. The space is private, comfortable and accommodating as well as fairly large. Located near Square Victoria metro between Rue St. Pierre and Rue McGill, the 2000 square foot loft space is equipped with a variety of furniture, backdrops, flooring and props.
Before opening her studio, Andrea Hausmann studied fashion communications, design and photography.
Her early work in portraiture was inspired by the vintage aesthetic of her favourite films. With local burlesque performers as muses she created a richer, more multi-faceted expression of sexuality than that found in most magazines.
Today, Andrea’s intimate portraiture is both timeless and distinctive. In the privacy of her studio she maintains the client’s comfort level and is better able to achieve their desired outcomes. The luxury and comfort of the photo shoot experience is especially important, as she wants to make people feel just as great as they look. Andrea loves the transformation she sees the women go through and the confidence they express after just a short time at the studio.
Andrea continues to expand her artistic boundaries through collaboration with innovative professionals including hair stylists, make-up artists, body artists and stylists, as well as local and international performers.
Christelle Souverbie has one mission: To help every woman embrace her seductive power. With expert brush strokes, an imaginative use of color and texture, and a unique understanding of light and shadow, she approaches each new face with creativity and precision.
Born in France and raised by a naturally artistic family, Christelle developed an interest in visual arts at a very young age. Art became her biggest passion and she decided to study Visual Arts at Cégep du Vieux Montréal and later the History of Art and Visual Arts at UQÀM (Université du Québec à Montréal).
Combing her interest in beauty, fashion and make-up with her background in fine arts led her to realizing her ultimate dream: professional make-up artistry. Following her heart, she obtained a diploma with honours in Artistic make-up at College Inter-Dec.
Christelle works as a freelance make-up artist, helping women and men look their best for photo shoots, weddings, formal events, prom night, and special occasions. For more samples of her work, visit www.crystalmakeup.ca.
