Another Boudoir Marathon is Coming Up!

Ladies- if you’re interested in getting some amazing boudoir photos taken by the talented Bre Thurston on September 18th (a great day for many reasons, including it being my wedding anniversary!) then please contact Bre at bre@brethurston.com or check out her website at www.brethurston.com. But hurry, there are only a few slots left!

This will be the third boudoir shoot that I have worked on with Bre as the makeup artist and the sessions just keep on getting better! They’re taken in a gorgeous hotel room in downtown Sacramento and we keep the champagne flowing and the girly clothes/accessories are all over the place! Bre’s photos always turn out amazing and you will not be disappointed!  Have them done as a gift for someone special (husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, whoever) or just do them for yourself! Trust me, you will be happy you did!

To check out makeup I’ve done for past boudoir photos look at my portfolio page above. Hope to see you there!

Showin’ a Little Love

My fellow up-and-coming makeup artist friend is going to start up her website soon and I thought I’d show a little love and let you know that she’ll be “coming soon!”

Larissa was one of my co-workers for years at one of the many cosmetic stores I worked at in my youth (ya know, cause I’m SO old now..). She is an incredibly talented artist (and great friend) and I even asked her to do the makeup for my own wedding!

So keep an eye out, her website should be live sometime in September and I will be sure to post the link here! She rocks! She did my makeup, plus eight bridesmaids and my mom all by herself!!

Professional Photos of Kira and Jordan’s Shoot!

Of course, as always, the photos by Bre Thurston turned out amazing. And I’m extremely biased about how gorgeous the couple is because they’re my best friends, but don’t they look amazing?

We did a very subtle, natural look on Kira for her engagement photos. We used light browns and creams for her eyes, peach blush on her cheeks with a little highlighter on her cheek bones, and nude lips. I didn’t want her makeup to stand out in the photos, so the light colors really helped accentuate her features without making her look overdone. I think she looks beautiful! …And the groom isn’t too bad either.   

If you’d like to see the rest of their engagement session, check out Bre’s website!

This is my favorite - You can't tell in black and white but Kira's drink is hot pink with purple sprinkles
