The Dynamic Duo strikes again!

Hello Readers,

Things have been crazy the last couple of weekends with pageants and A LOT of photo shoots! I have had an absolute blast working along side Kristina Thomas with Kristina Thomas Photography! She is phenomenal at what she does... and in my humble opinion I think we make a pretty good team! I just wanted to share some of our work from the past couple of weekends and the many friends/clients we have made along the way! Here are just a few of the lovely ladies I have had the pleasure to work with!

Meet Klaire: She was quite the character when we were hanging out and doing her hair and makeup! We had several dance parties, played simon says, and did our best "Hot Momma" poses.

Meet Caleigh: She was a blast from the past... we vaguely remember each other from the hallways of Shiloh. She was such a sweetheart and I can't wait to see what the pageant world holds for her!

Meet Caroline: I have been working with Caroline since she was 12 or so... and now she is taking the pageant world by storm. She and her mom, Kara, are two of the sweetest people I have ever met and I have loved working with them every step of the way!


Meet Hannah: She is such a precious little girl and Man, did I want to pinch those little chubby cheeks! She was very hesitant about wearing false eyelashes, but as soon as I told her that Elsa from "Frozen" wears them all the time she was ready for some lashes!

What a transformation!

Hello Readers,

As many of you know, I lost my grandfather to cancer this January. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever dealt with. It was so hard to watch him suffer from such an evil thing and not being able to do anything for him. People are affected by cancer EVERYDAY, even after they have already beaten it. People who are affected by it, whether they have/had cancer or have a loved one going through it, have a special place in my heart.

My beautiful client and friend, Kristina, is a Breast Cancer survivor! She has been cancer free for five years, but still struggles with her hair not being anywhere near the same as it was before cancer. Today we changed that! I was so excited to get to do something special for not only a cancer survivor, but one of my most amazing friends. You can watch the happy tears and transformation happen by clicking the link below!
Here is Kristina's before picture... Click the link to see the final result!

Behind the Scenes

Hello Readers,

I have some exciting news for all of you! I have had such a good response that with the few videos that I have posted that I have decided to start vlogging. For those of you new to the blogging world that is video blogging! So what I will be doing in taking a small camera with me to fun things like photo shoots, pageants, weddings, and the salon and capturing some of the day to day stuff that I do! And hopefully you will get a few more tutorials out of me as well!

This past weekend I not only worked an fifteen hour pageant day, but I also worked almost ten hours behind the scenes with the fabulous Kristina Thomas Photography (talk about a crazy weekend)! There were eight gorgeous girls who needed some head shots done... and they left with some of the most gorgeous head shots I have EVER seen! Kristina Thomas is a wizard behind the camera!

Hope you enjoy the video... Link is below!
