Christy of Christy Lea Photography

My heart goes out to my good friend Christy, of Christy Lea Photography, who is having surgery today.  I have had the opportunity to do her hair and makeup on numerous occassions, we always laugh so much and have a good time.  I was so excited to hear she was updating her photos, and letting another good friend of ours, Misti with Pink Fly Photography shoot her.  Christy styled her own shoot, and knew exactly what she wanted, which was obviously to look amazing, and she does!  Here’s a sneak peek from the shoot!

FROM SNOW, TO SUN

Yes, I am shamefully behind on updating my blog…..  it’s sad, I know.  But, I am making progress.  Well, for those of you who don’t remember, on Christmas day in Dallas, we had a white Christmas.  It was beautiful and magical.  It was such a great time to have my girls home.  So when the next day, my buddy Misti, with Pink Fly Photography (who is also my neighbor), called me up to see if I was up for doing a winter wonderland shoot, I jump.  My daughter Brittany was home from College Station, and  was more than willing to be our model for the day.  The freezing cold, ice and snow couldn’t keep us down, as we trecked out into the wilderness to get these awesome shots for you!!

Baby it’s cold outside!

Anyone who knows me, knows that winter is my very favorite season, followed by fall, and what an amazing fall it has been.  I am constantly amazed on how blessed I am to work with so many wonderful photographers in the Dallas area, and all of our amazing clients.  I also worked a great event for Seventeen Magazine and Cosmopolitian, sponsored by Mary Kay cosmetics, worked with Oprah’s makeup artists Stella Mikhail and Suzanne Avakian, in conjunction with Laura Mercier cosmetics, and worked my hair and makeup magic at the Seniorology tour in Dallas.  This post is just going to be playing a little catch up to what I have been doing during the end of summer, into the fall!  Be sure to watch for new, exciting things on the horizon for 2013.

Behind the lens, Misti Davis with Pink Fly Photography

I had a great opportunity to do makeup on Misti Davis, owner and picture taker extraordinaire of Pink Fly Photography (www.pinkflyphoto.com), specializing in senior and family portraits.  Misti was looking to take some updated photos of herself for her website.  It is always a fun time, when you get to step out of one roll, and into another.  I was super excited to go out on location where she was being shot, to see the world of photography in action.  I even got to hold this super shiny looking frisbee thing that bounces light.  Ok, enough about my exciting day.

Misti has these amazing blue eyes, so my goal was to create a look to make her eyes pop!  Mission accomplished!

Oh how I love prom!!

I just love prom!  Maybe because it reminds me of the “day”??  No, I think it’s the dresses, the shoes, the hair, and the makeup!!  OOOOH, the makeup!  Here are a few  candid photos of prom makeup that I have created!  This upcoming weekend is Allen High School’s prom, and I will be busy, busy, busy!  I am going to do my best to take some very amature shots of before and afters!  Until then……
