Momma Monday {Janelle & Liz}

I was so delighted to be able to do Hair & Makeup for my beautiful friend Janelle’s maternity photos. She was absolutely glowing and is going to be an amazing momma! You may be familiar with her cute blog Vintage Simply Love. If not, then be sure to go check it out! She has since had her cute baby boy! Congratulations Janelle and Tim, so so so happy for ya’ll!

Sally’s Wedding

 

I am finally getting caught up on all of the beautiful Brides, Weddings and other events I had the pleasure of working on last year!

Sally is beautiful from the inside out and I so enjoyed being her artist on her special day! Her wedding was held at her family estate which added such a special and sentimental touch.  It was a really rainy day, but Sally and her girls did not let that get them down.  I absolutely LOVE her fun photos with the cute umbrellas! We had a great day and I really enjoyed beautifying sweet Sally and her maids! A big thank you to my friend and fellow artist,  Rebekah for helping me with some awesome makeup!

Thank you Sally for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

A Year in Review

2014 was such an amazing year for me! I was so blessed with the opportunity to work with so many lovely ladies that needed beauty for various events including, Brides, bridal parties, photo shoots, parties, classes, etc.

I’ve loved meeting and getting to know all of the ladies and beautiful brides that have come my way and I have felt so privileged to have been able to spend one of the most important days of their lives with them and their families!  I truly love what I do and feel so blessed to be able to say that!

Below are some of my favorite images that I did hair + makeup for over the past year!  I also had the pleasure of working with some amazing vendors here in Charlotte!!

A huge thank you to my ladies, Jackie & Rebekah for their amazing work and for all their help! xoxo

2014 marked 10 years for me doing what I love!  Here’s to another amazing year and a very happy 2015!!
