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....



Meet Miss Bridget, her and I go way back to high school days (well that's just a few years ago hehe). Anyway, Bridget had contacted me with some interest in this amazing project she is involved with and was excited to share she could utilize my services of a hair and makeup specialist to help. Needless to say she didn't need to beg!! So a couple months ago we all met at Day Break and had this wonderful photo session with the very talented Matt Spencer http://www.mattspencerphotography/
This was a really long day of shooting, but as you can see with these beautiful pictures it was well worth it. The energy that fulfilled us that day is one I will never forget as it was the birth of new journeys for most everyone involved with this shoot. I can not wait for this project to come full circle, until then enjoy the radiance of my beautiful friend Bridget and Matt's amazing photography.
My friend Bridget is a transformational author and motivational speaker. You can learn more about her and her work at



Kirsten and Mark...what a fun couple! Kirsten had found me through her cousin as she (Alexis) was one of my very first brides. When I first met Kirsten she said she always wanted to have her wedding in Hawaii, but instead of taking all her money there she chose me (lucky me) and they will be having their honeymoon in Hawaii. I feel so fortunate to get the best brides, like many Kirsten came with total faith and confidence in me as she wanted the entire package (hair color, hair cut and hair and makeup artistry for everything). Yes, I love these type of brides :)
When she told Mark he has to get his airbrush makeup done too, (of course he was a bit resistant). Now as the proof is in the pictures of how evenly there flawless faces match one another and he actually liked the airbrush makeup.
I cant wait for this beautiful brides bridal pictures, she is strikingly beautiful and I love to make those beautiful blue eyes of hers pop!
