Pictures can speak a thousand words. I think photography is one of the most creative art forms out there and without photographs we wouldn't be able to capture fleeting moments like babies first steps, birthdays that happen only once a year, wedding days, and so forth. One of my dearest friends Abbey Lindsey has the gift of capturing the best of people through the use of her camera.
Fortunately for all of us, she has started her very own photography blog http://dylanbluephotography.blogspot.com/, which will no doubt become a bright spot in my day from now on. She is posting some of her work which includes anything from children (including my youngest son, Walker), to families, to models for the new upcoming magazine in Athens, Ga that she is the fashion photographer for.
The photo at the beginning of this blog entry and this one below are from most recent shoot she did with our model, Danielle. I did the makeup for my beauty page to be seen in the upcoming magazine, "BLVD - Style in the Classic City." Her placement of the model and finding the perfect light to highlight my makeup job turned out phenomenal!
I am completely comfortable admitting that the makeup applications I do for events such as model photo shoots and brides on their wedding day can look only as good as the job the photographer does to capture that moment. For anyone looking for a wonderfully easy person to work with to capture those precious moments through photographs - contact Abbey. Check out her blog daily for a quick and happy pick me up! Congrats Abbey- it's about time;-)
*So if you get inspired by the Cardinals or Steelers cheerleaders makeup while watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, log on to Sephora.com to buy your makeup. Let's be realistic, I only watch the game for the commercials - unless of course my Atlanta Falcons are playing in the game. Unfortunately, they blew it this year by not showing up when they had their chance at the Cardinals in the playoffs.Put in the following promo code - PLAYPRETTY at checkout through Sephora's website and get free shipping on all orders!
