A week ago we met with our friend and Virginia hair stylist Alice Olson of Hair by Alice to shoot some new hair styles for a project she is working on.

Our lovely Gloucester model Taylor did her own makeup, and our friend Angela of the Bridal Boutique of Gloucester provided a lovely wedding dress.

Angela’s shop is currently running some major sales on wedding dresses between $100-$2000. Be sure to check her out!

This isn’t exactly a “styled shoot,” but still, what photographer turns down the chance to photograph such a beautiful lady in a beautiful dress?

There was also a second model, the gorgeous Geena, but we’ll give her her own blog post tomorrow!

Okay, let’s girl this blog up a bit! 🙂

I’ve been aching to get my hair cut for quite a while now. After all, my last hair cut was more than a year ago!!!
I had grown so sick of my super-long locks; I hardly ever wore them open anyways. I just couldn’t think of any cool things to do with them.
So I wore them in a bun and a ponytail. That’s about it 🙂 How boring…

Definitely time for a change! After putting together pages of inspiration photos (I know…I figured my hairstylist would end up hating me…), I finally got a makeover!!!
I am super excited about it, Lauren from Shear Style Salon in Yorktown did such an amazing job!!! Even better than what I had hoped for!!!
So I will spend tonight going through my hair and trying out new hair styles in front of the mirror 🙂 Something I very rarely did the past year…

PS: PLUS, I am thrilled that my hair won’t accidentally dangle in front of the camera lens at weddings or photo shoots anymore, haha!

“We were barely eighteen when we crossed collective hearts
It was cold, but it got warm when you barely crossed my eye
And you turned, put out your hand, and you asked me to dance
I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight

I swear when I grow up I won’t just buy you a rose
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely
For even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
I will not leave, I will not leave ’til it’s on time
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side”

– fun, “The Gambler”

A few days ago we got to hang out with Alice Olson of Hair by Alice – you can read more about that here – and we got to meet the wonderful Theresa Little of Theresa Little Makeup Artistry.

Theresa Little is a prominent Virginia Beach makeup artist whose work has been featured in multiple publications and television commercials.

Just for fun, and for Alice to work her creative magic, Theresa did the makeup for herself and Alice did this bold, original styling in what seemed like no time at all.

It’s not often one of our makeup artist friends turns model and steps in front of the camera herself, but Theresa did! She was sporting not only Alice’s awesome styling but her own makeup, with shadows to accentuate her cheeks, deep magenta to boldly accentuate her lips and to match the tones in her hair, and green around her eyes to compliment the streaks of green in the feathers in her hair. And yea, she did all that in probably less than half an hour.

This is what it’s like when a team of creatives gets together to have fun!
