Model Behavior

Last week I worked a photo shoot for Silver Screen and Couture at The Temple Studio.  I snagged a few photos from behind the scenes and was able to get my hands on some of the final edits.  I absolutely LOVED all of the models and crew and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Just A Quick Peek

On top of all of the holiday rush, my ambitious self decided to launch a new campaign for Lace Cosmetics, remake/relaunch our website, revamp our blog and introduce a new category to our brand...all before Christmas.  Well, I'm almost there.  All of the new changes will go live before the end of this week (I will keep you updated).  I am so excited to share the new look for Lace with all of you. Here is a quick sneak peek into our photo shoot for the new campaign:

Lastly, here is the awesome review that I received on The Knot from a wonderful bride of mine.

WONDERFUL    posted 11/12/2012

Amanda did my make-up, my mother's and three of my bridesmaids. The make-up looked just like the trial - natural, light and beautiful, just like I requested. She helped me pick the eye make-up and lip stick colors based on my personality and the wedding colors. She even came to my house to do the trial! On the day of the wedding, she accommodated my schedule, moving with my bridal party from our hotel suite to our venue as we were getting ready. Because she is so easy to talk to, she felt like part of the bridal party. We were ready on time for pictures and everyone looked marvelous!!!!

A Photo Shoot At The Park

Yesterday I had a photo shoot in Atlanta's Piedmont Park. I worked with makeup artist Leah Carmicheal and photographer John Robertson. It was a beautiful day with fall weather and the perfect cloud cover. I wanted to share the events of our day with my photo diary. 20121003-211159.jpg

We arrived at the park and were welcomed by the beautiful Midtown skyline.

I made sure to wear my walking boots. I love the fall weather!

Leah and I decided to set up shop on some park benches. Here she is doing makeup on her fabulous model, Bianca.

John is shooting my model, Qadriciana on the swings next to the lake.

Poor Bianca tried and tried to get up in that tree.  If you see the golf cart behind the tree limb, that is security telling her to get off of the tree.  I cried from laughing.  This picture perfectly captures the moment.

Finally, we ended the shoot in the gazebo. A great end to a great day.

Weekend Warrior

Hello!!! It's Monday and I am so energized and ready for this week after an amazing weekend of work and play!  There were competitive cooking dinner parties (a chef-off if you will), connecting with friends, photo shoots, weddings, lounging...I can't complain.  Saturday was a CRAZY day but I had so much fun.  I was able to do makeup for a fantastic wedding party in the morning and then was apart of a "lifestyle" photo shoot in the afternoon in Atlanta's Piedmont Park.  Below I have posted a couple of fun teaser pictures for you to check out.  I will post a full blog about the shoot when I get more pictures :)

I hope you all survived the weekend and look forward to having another week of fun and glam. Kisses!
