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....



I first meet Kodi a year ago, she had just returned from serving charity work in Africa and contacted me with interest in hair and makeup as she was now competing in the MCV pageant. I know impressive already,
right! Anyway, I instantly feel in love with her (how can you not). Kodi is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met! So a year later she contacts me again and tells me she is now getting married and wanted my services for her special day! I was so tickled to hear where life had taken Kodi over the year and could not have been more honored to be sharing this moment with her. We schedule her consultation and of course she brings her dad with her again. This is what I admired the most about Kodi is the relationship she and her father share, it is truly something special. On her wedding day all I could think about was how her father was not only giving away his little girl, but his best friend. Kodi's contagious smile is only a reflection of the love that surrounds her, but also the beauty she has within that radiates all around her. Photography by Wendi Coombs Photography
