nature love

26 Jul

I had the sweet honor of dolling-up Kathy for her Engagement Shoot with the amazing Erica of Acres of Hope Photography and was BLOWN AWAY by the organic, nature-infused beauty Erica captured of these two lovebirds!

Kathy is naturally stunning so I kept her Airbrush Makeup light & natural and played up her beautiful green eyes with glowing earth-tones and sexy winged liner.  I finished her organic look with a natural bronzed glow, long flirty lashes and a glossy soft pout.

Enjoy a handful of Kathy & Travis’ beautiful pics below!


A big high-five to Erica of Acres of Hope Photography for once again making my jaw drop with the images she captured!  Click the image below to see more of Erica’s naturally stunning work!


Kathy & Travis, all my best wishes to you two little lovebirds!  Enjoy every moment leading up to your Big Day!

once, twice, three times a lady

I love it when I get to doll up a Bride before her Big Day… typically I doll-up a Bride-to-be once before her Big Day for her Grand Preview but it is always a sweet treat to doll-up a Bride-to-be for another special occasion before she says “I do”!

I was SO happy to doll-up Katie 3 times {she booked the popular “All Dolled Up” Package}! For her Engagement Shoot, Boudoir Shoot and Wedding Day, she had me there to powder, blush and gloss her with just the right touch of this-and-that to make her look and feel flawlessly breathtaking.  Katie is absolutely as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and by the time her Big Day came, dolling her up was relaxed, fast and flawless.  As an Artist, it’s nice going into a Wedding Day knowing EXACTLY what my client wants and having had a couple practice sessions to get familiar with my canvas before her Big Dy!

Enjoy the beautiful road leading up to Katie’s “I do’s” below…

Katie & Erik’s Engagement Shoot was captured by Heather of Vallentyne Photography. For her Engagement Shoot we decided on natural, minimalist makeup that would photograph beautifully without looking over-done…

Katie rocked her groom’s world with a sexy Wedding Day gift, a “for his eyes only” Boudoir album by Stephina Photography! For this shoot we decided to amp up Katie’s sex appeal with bolder eyes and more dramatic makeup… check out a few of her HOT pics {approved by the groom, of course}…

It was such a treat to doll-up Katie for her shoots before her Big Day, but dolling her up for her “I do’s” took the cake!  For Katie’s Wedding Makeup, we decided on soft smokey plum eyes framed with long, sexy lashes and finished with
glowing skin and a glossy pink pout…


Katie & Erik tied the knot at the lovely Paradise Point Resort,
I love this seaside Ceremony spot!


A big thanks to Heather of Vallentyne Photography for sharing all the beautiful moments she captured! Click the image below to visit Vallentyne Photography’s site.


Katie & Erik, lots of love to you beautiful little lovebirds!  Thanks for having me be a special part of your Big Day!  All my best wishes to you for an amazing journey as Husband & Wife!

I had the sweet honor of dolling-up Chantal for her surprise Engagement Shoot this past weekend.  What made this shoot so extra-amazing was the un-traditional’ness of it…  

What she thought was going to be a simple “we’re so in love” shoot when she came to California from Saudi Arabia and he was home from deployment after over a year of building a relationship spanning two continents, thousands of miles, a 20 hour flight and
10 hour time difference…
ended in the perfect day for him to get on one knee.

And the shoot could not have been more perfectly magical:
Chantal was treated to champagne and Celebrity’esque pre-shoot pampering  with {tear-resistant} Airbrush Makeup and Hair Styling {by myself and one of my amazing Hair Artists} then she was whisked away to a beautiful shoot styled by Couture Events where every sweet & candid emotion was captured by Bryan Miller Photography.

Here’s a sneak-peek at
Chad & Chantal’s Surprise Engagement Shoot…

…Oh… and she said yes ♥


…more  from this lovely day coming soon!
