new website!!!

I have FINALLY created a website! I have business for almost a year and have just been using my blog to showcase my work. I decided to finally make the leap and create a website. It's not anything special, I made it my self and I am by no means tech savvy, so please be kind. :)
 I also had my logo created!
With these changes I will probably be using my website a lot more than this blog, so please check out my website and visit to see what I've been up to.

Winter Wonderland | Styled Shoot

I was so lucky to be asked to be part of this winter wonderland styled shoot with Everly Events who came from Sothern California. We shot up in Park City Utah, and there was plenty of snow! We have had a pretty dry winter here, so I was glad that they were able to get the back-drop they were hoping for.

Shirly from Everly Events asked for a smoky eye and a soft and simple chignon type up-do. We did a pink lip to tie in the pink from the beautiful bouquet. It was cold but it turned out lovely.


I got to work so many amazing vendors, from Utah and California. Here is a list of the talented participants.

Haley | Super mom | photos by Alyssia B Photography

So Alyssia Baird (Alyssia B Photography) is an amazing woman and a friend of mine. She came up with a beautiful way to give back this year, she is taking nominations for women who could use a few hours just about them. She is donating her time and skills to provide a free photo shoot for the special women and capture some moments of them in their every day lives. She asked if I wanted to be a part of it, and I jumped all over it. I loved the idea!
Jump over to her blog (link above) to see a bit about Haley's story,
Here's her before, and I just love how you can see how happy she is . She's such a special woman and the twinkle in her eye kills me.



Thank you alyssia for letting me be a part of such a love filled project, and also for always getting the best makeup shots. :)

Nhiya Kay | Cozy Romantic Inspiration Shoot

I'm naturally drawn to the words: soft, romantic, blush, cozy, warm and anything else like them, so this shoot was definitely my cup of tea! Nhiya Kaye Photography KILLED IT with this shoot, along with the other amazing vendors. I always admire the people who put these amazing shoots together, it's so much work to see their vision come to life.

here is a before and after of the adorable and hilarious model, Amanda-

and here are only a few of the amazing photos from Nhiya Kaye Photography-

Dress: Pantora Bridal

 I must say, I'm not always super jazzed about hair. I like it but I don't feel like I am very good at it. But I absolutely love how this up-do turned out. :)
