Sharing the Joy....

Many people ask me if I like being a makeup/hair artist. Normally I answer back with a quick "yes", but truthfully that doesn't really cover the half of it. I don't "like" my job, I LOVE IT! Why?...well if you were in my shoes you would know exactly what I meant.
Even though I'm a makeup/hair artist, I wear a variety of other hats in my life as a mother, daughter, sister, wife, artist, teacher, beauty expert and a business woman. All of these elements add a lot of flavor to the mix, so I just thought to myself "you've logged a lot of hours on this interesting journey of yours, so you might as well share the ride". So I am! That will be the only way for you to understand what I love about my profession and why I love living in the moment....

Alexis and Bryant's Bridal and Wedding Pics....

Finally... I have been anxiously awaiting these pictures from this session. Alexis was such a fun bride and I felt so honored to be a part of her special day. She truly is a beautiful woman inside and out, I enjoyed enhancing it all. Congrats you two. Photography by Mackly Designer Portraiture.



My experience with Carrie was very rewarding. What a great way to start my wedding day! I forgot about everything that was going on around me because she made it so fun, relaxing and she is very professional. I was shocked that at age 50 I could look and feel like such a beautiful bride. She is so proud of her skills and in turn it made me feel gorgeous also. The most amazing part of it all is I have very sensitive skin and can use very few products. Her make-up didn’t bother my skin in any way. In ending, I would like to say that I was so anxious to get out there and show everyone how beautiful I was I forgot my bouquet! Thanks Carrie, I will never forget my wedding day you were such a great part of it!

My dearest friend Marc was visiting from NC, called with interest in having her hair and makeup done for a photo shoot for a mutual friend of our's new business, (she modeled accessories.) Looking forward to seeing the professional photos. This was Marc's first experience with airbrush makeup, she said "she looks 10 years younger".
Gotta love that!


Melissa came to me with interest in a makeover for hair and makeup. She writes a montly column for 'Wasatch Woman' magazine and her article was on 'head shots'. So with her idea for her column using herself as the example and experience, she booked her appointment to expereince airbrush makeup and light hair styling. Look for her upcoming article to be published soon. Michelle Ray Photography.


Kellie's wedding day hair and makeup

Kellie arrived so excited and full of energy this morning, TODAY she is getting married! This is bride and groom off to the temple....

Kellie too wanted lots of curls and a little pulled up. I added some extensions to her also to give her more volume and length.

Back of Kellie's hair, she would not be wearing the veil into the temple so had to give her a little detail.

Alexa's trial for her Bridal Pictures hair session

Alexa wanted a some of her hair up with lots of curls for her formal pics that will be taken on the 15th. This is what I came up with for during her trial run. I will be adding extensions to her to give her more length. Poor Alexa she just had her wisdon teeth out 2 days prior to this appointment too. Her hair looks beautiful though.
