Happy Birthday Shelli Martin!

Today is Shelli Martin's Birthday!!! 

There is so much I want say about this awe inspiring friend of mine...

First and fore most, Shelli is an incredibly devoted wife to her husband Paul and mother to their two kids Madeleine and Riley. If kids happen to be in my future, she WILL BE my role model and mentor. She and Paul have raised some of the best teenagers I have know :) Family is everything to her.

Second, Shelli is an amazing friend and confidant to everyone around her. She has this ability to always make you feel heard but also tell you the truth...whether you want to hear it or not. :) To Shelli, it's her duty to not only help others, but to EMPOWER those around her.

Shelli's laugh is contagious and priceless and she is one of the best story tellers I know. She is a beautiful person inside and out. Her favorite thing in life is to laugh with those closest to her! Not to mention giving and getting presents! She loves everything sparkly! :)

{Shelli, I hope you are having a wonderful Birthday! Bring back the sun and warmth from your well deserved vacation...Love you much! Tell Paul Happy Birthday too! You guys are the best!!!!}

Luly Yang Photo Shoot

I apologize for not blogging at regular intervals...Life sometimes gets in the way of me being able to blog consistently. The past few weeks have been very busy and very fun :) My Mom was out here visiting me for 10 fabulous days. We made it to Portland by train, where unfortunately the weather was just as dreary and depressing as Seattle. She is now back at home in the south east where the weather is much lovelier and warmer. I won't hold my breath waiting for spring to arrive in the NW. Fingers crossed, it arrives soon!

Can't tell we are related can you :)

This morning I had the very distinct pleasure of styling hair for Luly Yang's upcoming ad campaign. The shoot took place in Woodinville at the Alavekios Studio. One of the prettiest studio's I've worked in.  Both Corinne and Stevn Alavekios are the mastermind photographers behind their studio and two people that Luly trusts to capture her vision and bring it to life. The great Michael Bride, fitting last name, was the makeup artist for the day. His two assistants did a magnificent job as well...Thank you Danielle Golla and Melanie Bulliman. Very elegant and beautiful makeup for our beautiful and regal model Ashley. Thank you to everyone on this shoot. Can't wait to see the ad campaign revealed.

Here are some of the behind the scene pictures...

The mess I had fun creating

You can never have enough sparkle :)

This fringe is not hers...this took me 45 mins to get right. A little glue and a lot of snipping.

Love the tiara.

A little brooch in the back for drama and sparkle.

 Just a stunning model with beautiful  makeup, hair and gowns. 

I hope you enjoyed your Monday!!!
 I know I did!
