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....


Featured Wedding Day~ Riley & Amber

When you travel from city to city doing makeup and hair for brides you get the opportunity to see some wonderful scenery. I will say "I feel very blessed to be doing what I do, I truly LOVE my job!" As those who know me well know that I love the city and the ocean, but when you get pictures from one of your brides who captured the heart and beauty of home you feel so blessed to have this sanctuary that touches the soul and reminds you why you're so blessed!
Amber made one stunning bride especially next to the beautiful Wellsville mountains and I love how this beautiful bride kept to her country roots. Simplicity and elegance definitely reflects in Amber. I also love how she included her best friend (her dog :))

Featured Wedding Day~ Chris & Christy

When I first met Christy it was at a bridal faire, she was one of the first brides who ran to my booth the minute the doors opened. She said to me "I had to book you first". The spirit of this beautiful girl was so warming and contagious. I felt it a true honor to be apart of her special day! When I had the pleasure to meet her mom, I knew instantly where Christy got her liveliness from, they are two peas in a pod! Her wedding day session was captured so intimately as Christy and her mom have had to endure what most of us will hopefully never have to experience. Her mom is a breast cancer survivor but none the less it made this family realize even more how precious life is. Christy spared no moment that she did not have her mom and her family by her side on her wedding day. I love how she had her Mom & her Dad give her away (when you have only one daughter this is how it should be)! The love that this family expresses is as genuine as is can be! Thank you for allowing me to share this moment with each of you.
