I’m very excited to share these photos from Sue+Jeff’s engagement session shot by Meg Perotti!  They are getting married tomorrow!! ;) I met Meg at her wedding day last fall, by assisting my esteemed colleague & mentor, Lisa Strutz.  Sue had called me telling me she was deciding her hair and makeup vendor, when Meg kindly mentioned my name and helped Sue make her decision!  We did a trial in the spring time, and I did her makeup & hair during the summer time for their engagement session!  During our trial session, Sue brought me…Chocolates!  And got me hooked onto more chocolates when I did her makeup & hair for the e-session! It was the first time my client brought me sweets (How did she know I had a sweet tooth?!) It was incredibly sweet (pun intended!); I was really touched and I loved it all!!! 

I loved how the photos captured their personality! I’m very excited for tomorrow~ ;) And I look forward hanging out with Sue after her big day is over! ;)

so…when I saw these on Meg’s blog, she was saying how she fell behind on blogging…I can totally relate…I am so behind on my blogging, too! ;( I need to buckle down and blog come Nov/December time and catch up??!  Ahh!  For now, enjoy these photos! ;)

Woohoo! Published in Dutch-based fashion magazine TwentyTen! To see the full size magazine web version, click here!  It was published July 2011 (yeah I didn’t find out until now!) but I’m still psyched! It’s a 12 page spread with my name on it! *jumps up and down*  On the day of the shoot last year, the hair stylist that was supposed to come could not make it.  And…so I had a Tim Gunn “make it work” moment where I used the 1 hair spray, 1 brush, and a few bobby pins that were “backups” in my makeup kit and whip it out!  I am really proud of my work in this set, and also proud to be a part of an amazing and inspiring team! 

Today started off a little rough, but seeing this makes me feel all better! ^o^ And my hubby and I went to celebrate by eating Korean BBQ!!! Weeeeee!!! ;D

Congratulations to beautiful new Mommy & Daddy!!!! They recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy.   It was an absolute pleasure working with my client, K!  K found me on Yelp! and told me that she decided to go with me after seeing the maternity photos on my Skyla Arts page (under Photography&Portraits!).  I was especially honored that she chose me to do her hair and makeup after she told me that she modeled for Benefit Cosmetics/Sephora before – since doing makeup for a cosmetic campaign is one of the things I hope to do in the near future!  
I was delighted to learn that from where her father is from in Ethiopia, her darker rimmed lips (as if she was wearing lipliner) and gums would be the epitome of what a Beautiful Woman would look like!  This is why she prefers lipgloss – to show off her beauty!  I really enjoy learning about what is beautiful from different cultures – like big, round, watermelon, jiggly booty is viewed as beautiful in parts of Brazil.  I loved the whole setting, and I love their dog!! Oh what a super model dog!
