After graduating from the Hair and Makeup p
rogram at Vancouver Film School, Kaija moved straight to Seattle to start paying off her loans working at the counter. She worked with Stila and Laura Mercier learning product and practicing on a multitude of faces. While at Laura Mercier, she was asked to assist for Nordstrom.com. Six years later her clients include Nordstrom, Burton, The Line NYC, Khaite Jeans and Oiselle. She traveled with Mary Lambert to the Grammys and has been involved in numerous music videos both locally and nationally. Recently she became a "Role Model" with Make It Real Play, a company that inspires young people's curiosity in careers within the arts. She creates how-to videos and assists with product design. It's a privilege to belong to a network of powerhouse female creatives in Seattle. She has shot inclusive stock photos for Refinery 29 and brought a fresh eye to a Korean beauty campaign for the Nordstrom Pop-in shop. She is grateful to have shot covers for Kinfolk, Wired and several bridal magazines with renowned photographers including Platon, Autumn De Wilde, Ashley Armitage, and Daymion Mardel. The best part for her though, is collaborating with the crew and laughing with the person her chair.
