There’s A Baby In The Dollhouse!!!!

I’m sure  most of you know what we’ve been up to lately. It’s blanetly obvious if you visit mine and Lauren’s Facebook pages. But if you DON’T know……. Little baby Chloe Elizabeth was born on September 30th at 2:36am to my best friends Lauren and Tim Nichols! Man, was it a long night! I thought for sure Chloe would enter the world the night of the 29th but she had to be like her mommy and be fashionably late so as to make an entrance!

Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed in the room during labor (ARGH!), but when I walked in to meet my brand new goddaughter around 6:30am, I let everyone coddle over baby Chloe for a minute to sit on the bed with my friend/sister to make sure she was okay (Lauren had to get a Cesarean Section due to the little one not wanting to come out!). We hugged and cried because she was now a mommy! I look at Tim like a brother and we joke that it’s awkward if we hug or do a kiss on the cheek. But that ALL went out the window that early morning. I even told Lauren just the other day that seeing him as a new daddy makes him even more attractive than he already is. That was so weird to say out loud!!

Chloe is a little over 3 weeks old today and I can’t tell you how loved and spoiled this baby is! As a Godmother, I can’t express the love I have for this new beautiful life that I get to be a part of. I can only imagine the feeling when we have our own children. I didn’t want to write much because for one, everyone always wants to see pictures and two, I’ve been CRAZY busy taking care of Lauren’s wonderful clientele until she gets back. So here you go Dollface Readers…. Here’s the stunning baby Chloe Elizabeth Nichols!!There’s A Baby In The Dollhouse!!!!.

Charlotte Wedding Magazine Fiesta Shoot

When I got the email from Charlotte Wedding Magazine asking if I’d do makeup for an inspiration shoot, I responded with a HECK YEAH! When I started doing makeup professionally I called around to all kinds of photographer’s asking if they needed an artist for trade shoots. Basically that meant I was working for free for a good 4-6 months. But I had to put something on my website! I love making over models and the atmosphere of a real photo shoot. It goes from slow pace to fast in the click of a camera! The photographer needs to get out there for that perfect light or before a rain storm. I love the creative freedom of doing something different or bold. My mom still tells me to this day I ALWAYS had to be different! Namely clothes, music, hair, makeup. I always wanted to fit in with the “cool kids” but still be my own person. I’ll tell you a secret… I’m pretty loud and I’m not shy about voicing my opinions. Lauren hates it when she is giving a client a facial and she can hear me right next door! So back to my point of being loud and different! On photo shoots I’m allowed to voice what I think a look should be and work with the stylist so we can be cohesive and on the same page.

This shoot was so much fun! May I just say that Lucy and Steven Randall of Smitten and Hooked Photography are so much fun to work with!! So much energy and creativity come out of that couple! And they’re HILARIOUS! And once I arrived I saw some of the beautiful creations that other vendors had worked on. I was SO excited to see that Karen Greenoe of Lily Greenthumb had made the most beautiful and colorful flowers. Why was I excited?! Well, because Miss Karen is doing the florals for my wedding!! I absolutely adore her! This shoot was inspired by the Latin culture. So think lots of colors, sombreros’, spicy dishes, and dancing! All the photos came out beautiful and I was so excited when I received my box of magazines. I know where I started and where I’m headed so it will never get old seeing my name in a magazine. Thank you Charlotte Wedding for allowing me to work on such a fun shoot! Ya’ll have treated  me well!

Hope you enjoy some of my favorites! To see the full 12 page spread, check out the magazine!
