Hello!  My name is Stephanie, and I am the owner and artist for Stephanie May Makeup Artistry.   From a very early age I was fascinated by fashion trends, hairstyles, and makeup. I can remember styling my single  mom's hair and applying her makeup before she would go on dates.   Friends from school still talk about my "amazing"  spiral perm and huge bangs that I rocked throughout  the late 80's and early 90's.  At sleepovers, I would show all the girls how to get their bangs perfect with a can of Aqua Net.   

Fast forward to the present, I  have spent over  14 years in the beauty industry, working everywhere from Philly, to NYC, and Tampa FL . Some of that time was working in a high end salon environment, as well as working as a  freelance artist for Tampa Bay's top photographers, models, fashion designers, clothing companies, Home Shopping Network, and for countless brides. 

In 2011, I left sunny Tampa FL in my rear view mirror, and moved back to my hometown roots in Mifflin County in Central PA.  I have decided to relaunch my freelance business here in Central Pa, in order to bring a level of professionalism and experience not previously available locally.  I pride myself in making every person who sits in my chair, not only comfortable, but ensure they are being listened to 100%.  Whether it is for a boudoir shoot, family portraits, senior portraits, or your "big day" down the aisle, you will look in the mirror and feel like the very best version of YOU!!! 

When I am not in the photo studio,  or transforming someone into a bombshell bride for one of the biggest days of their lives.  I spend my free time being a stay at home mommy to my amazing daughter Scarlett, who just turned 3. And my significant other, Nick.  I enjoy cooking new meals, DIY decor, anything vintage, punk rock, thrift/consignment shopping, and losing hundreds of hours on pinterest.
