I am in DESPERATE need of two HAIR and MAKEUP ARTISTS to help me with a styled shoot I am planning in Chicago.
I am teaming up with a Chicago charity, Desire to Aspire, to do styled mini maternity sessions for an event they are hosting in Chicago (Hyde Park.)
The mission of Desire to Aspire is to enrich the lives of underprivileged and minority girls and women. They instill in young ladies the importance of higher education, sisterhood, etiquette, culture and service -- all while building self-esteem and character. They teach young ladies good decision-making skills in order to avoid high-risk behaviors such as drugs, alcohol and violence. They also provide educational services and resources for women to ensure that they lead successful careers and healthy lives, socially, emotionally, and physically.
The event they are putting on is Chicago Baby Shower and it will take place on JULY 16th from 4-6 pm.
I was asked to volunteer my time to do mini maternity sessions for the moms-to-be. Desire to Aspire want to try and provide them with something beautiful to remember their pregnancy by.
I was hoping to created something special for the moms and thought that a styled mini maternity sessions would be the way to go.
The Milwaukee mom's community has been gracious enough to donate some maternity (and non-maternity) long flowy dresses for the session. I was hoping to find a couple of hair and makeup artists to donate their time and efforts to make these ladies feel special the day of the shoot.
Right now we have 5-8 ladies confirmed as pregnant and wanting a mini-maternity session the day of the Baby Shower. Since the sessions would be quick, we would only have 15-20 minutes per mom to get them camera ready.

Does anyone know an artist in Chicago that would be willing to donate their services? Or even someone local willing to travel to Chicago for the day.
Please please message me!
