I love Susan’s classic, graceful beauty and was so pleased to have been able to do her makeup for her bridal portraits as well as her hair and makeup for her rehearsal dinner! Unfortunately I wasn’t available on her wedding day (major sad face inserted here) but am so thrilled to have just gotten my hands on all theses beautiful images by the dreamy, magnificent Thisbe Grace Photography.

Lauren’s bridal portraits | Canals at Las Colinas | Brandi Burkett Photography

16 Jun

 Screen Shot 2014-06-12 at 4.07.41 PM

I’ve been dying to do this post! Lauren took her bridal portraits earlier this spring before she hopped on a plane with her fiancé, both their families in tow, and headed for their destination nuptials on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Jealous? Yeah, me too. But I’m so grateful I was able to do her hair and makeup for her romantic, Tuscan-inspired portrait session at the Canals of Las Colinas with Brandi Burkett Photography. Aside from how gorgeous she is – how freaking amazing is her couture wedding gown by Deborah Powell of White Gown Workroom? Swoon. Cheers to you, sweet Lauren!

Jennifer’s wedding day beauty | Nicole Berrett Photography | Paradise Cove Lake Grapevine

 So, I am super late on blogging this gorgeous, brunette beauty …. but better late than never! Jennifer’s wedding day look included a palette of soft beigey-nude-browns and pretty pinks. I created a sideswept, softly curled updo that we topped off with a pretty little bling. Enjoy these gorgeous images from her Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine wedding by Nicole Berrett Photography.

Ballerina Beauties | Heather Hawkins Photography | Dallas Youth Ballet

10 Jun

Today on the blog, I’m swapping brides for ballerinas!WQy8vuNW3_aJsSS95IX11cG9WqVPZc49bvUgDwVsKSs,KuZFUSRDXvPBPG48TCfS5iQhiHFFIdoAA9RJqpy8Ra4,ZI-j0w11EaW--YB2SZGgmSJtGfDsna2ynfaGmFrqdK8

I had the pleasure of working with Brooke & Tatum, two gorgeous, lovely girls, best friends and gracefully talented dancers with the Dallas Youth Ballet at The Dallas Conservatory. They came to me to get hair and makeup ready, then headed to Bows & Arrows next for their fancy floral crown toppers, then off they went with Heather Hawkins Photography, who captured these breathtaking images!

I did a really soft, muted matte palette of dusty pinks, taupes and browns with flushed cheeks and matte lips, then finished them off with detailed braided updos. Enjoy!

Sugar Bee Sweets Baby Gender Reveal with Berrett Photography :: Heidi’s hair + makeup

9 Jun

Let’s be honest. How cute is this gender reveal photo session??

4Cque8UHFNi-8iVLud1Q_7IVBy4jxkzZi4i_RARaMVE

Such a beautiful family! Heidi (owner of Sugar Bee Sweets bakery in Arlington) and Bryan each chewed up a piece of pink and blue bubble gum, blew a bubble and had their daughter Vivian burst a bubble to reveal that they are having another little girl! I was honored and thrilled to do Heidi’s hair and makeup for their family session with Berrett Photography at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens.

VpKmFNXtRdwewU7jlUTuyeGVEspnXpps2RqGtKhMRvI

I wanted to emphasize Heidi’s gorgeous, sparkly blue eyes with a charcoal eyes shadow and black liner and highlight her gorgeous bone structure with a pop of color on her cheeks. For her hair, I gave her big waves with extra volume a little braid on the side. Enjoy!

Hunter’s wedding day beauty | A/K Photography |Miss Mary’s Place, Longview wedding

I’ve know Hunter for just literally as long as I can remember, having grown up down the street from her when we were little kids. Being a part of her wedding day was less like work and a lot more like a big ole’ east Texas reunion with old friends. I got Hunter and all her bridesmaids makeup-ready at the Cherokee Club overlooking Lake Cherokee before her ceremony and reception at Miss Mary’s Place this spring. She’s as sweet as she is beautiful and her entire group of beer-drinking, boot-wearing, hysterical and gorgeous bridesmaids had me laughing the entire day.

Enjoy these beautiful images by A/K Photography.

Sarah’s bohemian engagement portraits | Margot Landen Photography

29 May

View More: http://margotlandenweddings.pass.us/knowlton_eng

My friend Sarah is one of those girls that you’re just instantly attracted to. She’s a blonde-hair (platinum these days), blue-eyed, fair-skinned beauty with gorgeous features, legs for days, and a bohemian-chic, free-spirted style all her own (note, her whimsical-chic BHLDN gown). Not to mention her delicate but distinctive European bone structure that I just adore.

So when she told me her vision for her engagement shoot with the vastly talented Margot Landen Photography, I was over the moon! I knew her style would translate into images that were anything but your average, posed engagement shoot.

Wild hair with tight waves and straight ends with tons of carefree volume. Illuminated skin that glistens in the sun. A soft but but striking glow in a warm palette of pink, peach, gold and champagne. Naked, effortless, no-makeup-makeup. Enjoy these stunning, sun-drenched, roaming-the-wilderness images of Sarah & Thomas!
