Sorry I haavent been able to blog in a while! I have been super busy lately with makeovers and meeting great fabulous people in the business! On the midst of all this, I was lucky enough to run into Christy Whithead, a local photographer! Both being in the wedding industry we instantly hit it off and kept messaging each other back and forth, finally we were like LETS MEET! lol! At first I figured we should meet at the typical first meet location....STARBUCKS! I swear I should have a plaque at that place! ha! Then Christy suggested an awesome idea! She invited me into her studio to experience first hand what it is she does! At first I though, Oh no! I am no model how will this turn out! lol! I was a little nervous, but as soon as I got to her studio it was so comforting and cozy that my nerves went away. Christy was so sweet and funny from the start that we spent a couple hours being typical silly girls giggling about goofy stuff and even trying funny poses just to be silly! Then Christy decided to put "THE FAN" on me! Yes the typical "model in a glamour photoshoot fan!" At first I could not stop giggling, but then you almost feel like "wait a second! I'm totally having a Britney moment!" hahaha! It's silly but she does make you feel like a star! I had so much fun with her and her work was great! I was so excited to have some new fun pictures to share! If you are looking for that special person to shoot your wedding day, engagement/family pics or just want to have a fun glamour or budouir shoot you should check out her website! She even has really fun props for your pics! Especially if you have kids! We have some really fun projects scheduled for later this year so stay tuned for details! I have a feeling we will be a dynamic duo! Check her out for your self! http://www.christywhiteheadphotography.com/

I am soooooo excited to announce the hottest thing to hit Jacksonville!!! As a makeup artist, most of us dream about what it would be like to have our OWN line! Well, one local artist (Sarah Johnson) went out and achieved just that, calling it GLAMOUR AND GLOSS! I havent had the chance to play with it just yet... but the word on the street is that the line is high in pigment and has a great variety of color, perfect for anything from your every day look to your divas night out! I asked Sarah about the durability of her makeup, and she said it has such great staying power, she tested in water and she came out with everything in place! This would be great for all my teary brides, or my work out divas! If you are a fashion forward diva, which I know most of you are, you want to be the first to get your hands on the hottest thing circulating Jacksonville's Beauty Market right now!! I am honored to be one of the first people lucky enough to get to play with GLAMOUR AND GLOSS and would like to invite you guys to join me also in the playtime! I LOVE supporting local artits, and Sarah Johnson has accomplished so much, that I am excited to be one of the firsts to experience this before she starts selling in stores! If you would like to join me message my facebook account or post a comment! The fun takes place next Thursday the 24th! Hope you can make it!

TPC Wedding

I am so glad to finally have time to update my blog! With everything going on I have hardly had time to sit in front of the computer for pleasure only! This week was filled with two photo shoots, a wedding, two engagement pics, a bridal consulation, and of course still worked my part time hours at Chanel! Of course I can't complain! My job is filled with fun, excitement, glamour, and tons of love around me!
I got to work with a model this week that will be on ANTM!!! For those of you that don't watch that's..America's Next Top Model! lol! She was really sweet and had amazing moves! I just watched her do all this crazy stuff with her arms and then when I actually saw the pics they looked amazing! It just boggles my mind sometimes when I get to work with a model that amazing, how they JUST KNOW how to move and look at the camera!
The bride I worked with on Saturday was also a dream! I actually had a blast hanging out with her and her mom while I got the whole bridal party glammed up before the wedding! She got married at the TPC, which is just an amazing venue! Her and her mom own the jewlery store at The Landing, so of course the jewelery at the wedding was a sparklefest! It was every girl's dream! Her ring (which was 1/3 smaller than her mom's) was a beautiful 3 carrot diamond! Everything from her dress to the flower baskets was a dream! I swear I love everything about being part of their special day! Can't wait to show everyone the pics! they were done by http://www.sandbwedding.com/ I will post as soon as I get them! I have never worked with them before and I am soooo excited to see their work! I LOVE meeting new vendors in the business! Alright well, time for bed. My hubby and my chihuahua Gianni await! xoxo!
