Jeanne d'Arc, Ma Mère

Jeanne d'Arc
6 . 23 . 2012

My mom was my best friend and number one client. From the day I began my journey as a makeup artist, she was the best and happiest customer I have ever had. Her battle with Breast Cancer began in 1994 and I knew it was my duty to make her feel confident, whole, and beautiful, the best way I could. Whether it be a birthday celebration, or just a dinner date with my dad, I did her makeup to make her feel beautiful. She always said that I was the best. This was truly because even throughout the chemotherapy or harsh medications, I knew every detail of her face with my eyes closed and could create anything she asked me to.  I really miss our one-on-one moments where I was able to spend time with her and make her the happiest and most confident woman in the room. I will miss her every day of my life. I love you Mama forever and always.

Aista and Matt's Wedding

This wedding was so much fun to be a part of! I am so happy that I was able to be a part of Aista's big day and she looked absolutely beautiful. I did Aista and her mom's makeup, and they looked so beautiful! Her photographer Kris Sundberg was so nice and his pictures came out so great! He was really able to capture Aista and Matt's simplicity and love.

Here are some great photos (courtesy of Kris Sundberg) of the beautiful bride Aista and her gorgeous mom Mamak.
