Happy New Year to You!

Happy New Year!  What a great time to make a few resolutions, wake up everyday and find gratitude in what you do, and for me go do a photo shoot! I met Nikki through Erica, the photographer. It was a great January morning and we were all ready to have a great shoot.  We met in downtown Phoenix, Arizona and from the pictures, the back drop was perfect for a new year’s celebration!  Thank you for a great time ladies! I had a lot of fun doing makeup.

I love how these turned out!

A September Wedding in the Yard

I loved being a part of this wedding!  Jamie contacted me through a mutual friend and from the beginning it was a great relationship between bride and makeup artist.  For anyone who has met or worked with me will tell you that I fully support a bride looking like herself on her wedding day.  And when Jamie told me she wanted a minimal amount of makeup because she does not wear a lot on a daily basis, I listened.  Stating my disclaimer of needing enough for pictures, we agreed on a natural look with airbrush makeup.  The application would be flawless but feel light, and her eyes would pop in the pictures. 

Showing up on the morning of the wedding was like walking into the most ideal situation a makeup artist of over 8 years could dream of.  A phenomenal group of ladies-sister, friends, mom, aunts-with the most welcoming and warm energy I have truly felt from a wedding party.  I was so grateful for the experience and as a result everyone had a great time and the makeup fell right into place.

The pictures show how the unique ideas of the bride came across.  Earth tones with each of the bridesmaids choosing their own dresses.  And it was beautiful! 

Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!

A Model in the Making

I love an early morning photo shoot in the valley!  And especially since it was an early June morning in Arizona, shoots start and end early.  This Saturday morning I made the drive to Mesa, Arizona to work with Michelle Herrick photography and our model, Justine.  These ladies were a lot of fun.  It was great that Justine had several outfit choices which is a must for an up and coming model.  Giving options to work with always has a better outcome.  We decided to do a more natural makeup for Justine on these headshots. She is hoping to submit these to an agency.  I love how they turned out! A great reflection of Justine’s personality.
