Jen Tawa is an extraordinary hair stylist and lovely person who I was fortunate enough to photograph, not once, but twice!
Jen and I first met at the Boston Public Library when I was assisting the incredibly talented photographer and artist, Corinna Raznikov of Corinna Raznikov Photography. I saw her work and grabbed her business card. It just so happens that Jen also lives close by so that was another indication that we should collaborate. I had a Rodan & Fields party where I was to photograph 11 of their sales people. All different ages, shapes and personalities. Jen brought two of her talented stylists to assist and we managed to listen to all of the woman as to how they wanted to look and be photographed and produced some beautiful, unique images for all of the women.
Jen came to me recently and asked me about photographing her. She needed some updated head shots and was celebrating some milestones in her life. Jen had worked hard and had reshaped her body was also having a big birthday that she wanted to commemorate. We discussed how she wanted to be photographed, what her brand was and what she wanted to wear. The photographs from our session reflect how playful she is and what a special person she is.
After her personal branding session, she also wanted to celebrate her two handsome boys, her parents and her husband. All six of them came in and we had an amazing time. It was clear to me why Jen is so special as she is surrounded by so much love.
I am very fortunate and grateful that Jen will be sharing her talents styling my clients. When she is not making people look gorgeous in my studio, she works as a stylist in Brookline at The HC Studio and also works on the set of America’s Test Kitchen. Jen is also mother of two handsome sons, an amazing wife and devoted daughter! I am blessed that our paths have crossed.
