Yes, internet…. it has, most definitely, been a while. Life has been so good to me these last few months and I extend my deepest apologies for not keeping you all filled in. There is so much to tell!
Let me begin with this: Wedding season was an amazingly busy experience for me this year and for that I am TRULY blessed! The lives I have been touched by these last months have helped me grow both professionally and personally. For that, I would like to thank all of my 2010 Brides and clients! Without you, I would have smiled less, laughed less and would not have had the privilege of falling deeper in love with what I do.
Fun fill in fact #2: I am mere MONTHS away from becoming a LICENSED COSMETOLOGIST!!! Ohhhh ya! Yours truly will be doing makeup AND HAIR for my already Fab Brides! Oh how I am so lucky to have two loves! I am currently building my Bridal Hair Portfolio so be on the look out!
Fill in facts 3-? : I have two amazing new jobs (when I am not making Brides up, that is). One position is at a “Five Diamond property” that I can not name but trust me.. It’s very exciting to be a part of such a beautiful location. Here I act as their Bridal Makeup Artist and Special Event Artist (insert girly scream here!). The other position I hold is Makeup Artist/Salon Assistant for the cutest and hippest Salon in my area, Salon Bliss! Once licensed, you will find me behind the chair there, doin’ my thang.
WPPI this year my big sis landed me a gig to do the hair and makeup for Jacksonville Photographer, Scalett Lillian. Type my name in the Search Engine and you will be able to see the lovely model, Erin Wade.
My sister, Mirelis (BrownEyedPhotographer), shot the 2010-2011 FIREFIGHTER CALENDAR… and GUESS who got to act as makeup artist for the shoots…. OH YA!
This April, two of California’s VIP photographers, The Bui Brothers, were in town for a lighting workshop, and I was asked to do the makeup for their models! (another girly scream)
My parents have just completed 28 years of marriage and two very special women in my life are now MRS.! What an honor to have been a part of their days!
All but 2 of my “Service Friends” are back in the states from their deployments, safe and sound. Thank the Good Lord!
New business cards are on the way along with some new promotional/advertising print work I am excited to release!
There are so many wonderful things that have happened ….. I hope this catches you up a bit!
I will be writing more frequently, but until then….I leave you to my year in photos
