Mentor Session

A couple weeks ago I received an email from a Kennedy High School student named, Keoni. As a graduation requirement, the seniors are to find a mentor in the career path they hope to enter. She and her mom researched a handful of Makeup Artists and decided to contact me. What a great surprise. 

Here is a before and after picture of the makeup session I performed on her mom, Ana. During her session, I shared my techniques, answered herquestions, and laughed the whole time. It felt amazing to be able to inspire an aspiring young artist. I wish Keoni the very best in all her future endeavors. Keep reaching for the stars!

Wendy & Ryan...they are such an adorable couple. Throughout our hair and makeup session, I'd catch Ryan staring adoringly at his beautiful wife. And why not, she's gorgeous. As you'll see in these images, they are so in love.

Here's a glimpse at Wendy & Ryan's photo shoot with my friend and Bay Area photographer, Michelle Ng. Please enjoy!

Evelyn | Hair & Makeup Session

I had the great pleasure of meeting wedding coordinator, Evelyn of Evelyn Francesca Events and Design. At a recent hair and makeup session, I learned that we have a lot in common, including a great passion for our work. After our session, she jumped into a photo shoot with Talia Studio. Here are a few of the photos below. Thank you Evelyn for an enjoyable session and I hope you enjoyed the Sweet Fuss experience.
