Kathleen Corbett is a color-correction specialist with 10 years of experience as a salon owner and 5 years of experience as a Joico educator.

Internationally trained stylist and makeup artist Sonal Pandya lives her dream of beautifying “anyone with hair and skin” with techniques culled from the Far East. Her approach to beauty is a blend of creativity with an eye for detail developed during 22 years of experience. She demonstrates her perfectionism through intricate patterns of henna body artwork and precision threading, which sharpens eyebrows without the use of chemicals or inflicting near-sightedness. Sonal also preps brides for their big day with makeup applications and hairstyles that twist and layer locks into Escher-esque updos adorned with decorative beads and stones.

There is no one size fits all when it comes to boudoir photography. That's why before every shoot, the all-female crew at Little Secret Studio conducts personal consultations, during which clients discuss photo packages, settle on their ideal aesthetic, and plan their shoot for a professional studio setting, an outdoor location, or the silky sheets of a luxury hotel. On the day of the shoot, clients may go through two to six outfits and up to two different hairstyles, all furnished by Little Secret Studio's professional styling team. Under professional guidance, clients pose in provocative, flattering angles as the photographer snaps vivid color or black-and-white shots of solo women or couples. Clients preview their shots one or two weeks after the shoot and can opt for their retouched images in the form of a disc, print, canvas and/or Little Secret Black Book. Though boudoir photography is the studio’s specialty, Lifestyle Portrait packages are available to capture life's more PG moments.
