10 days new.

I’m very in the moment with newborn sessions, which is why I love them because they allow me to be more creative and give client’s a unique experience. On the other side, I stress HARD about newborn sessions until I walk into the home and see what I’m working with. The second I walked into this nursery, all the stars aligned, angels sang, and every worry left me. Just LOOK at it. Sigh. Is it strange that my bedroom walls are the same color? Mommy’s got good taste!

I recently purchased my first L lens. I chose the Macro to help capture those close-up newborn details (and it’s nice to have on hand for weddings, which I am getting into this summer). I love being able to close in on baby’s tiny features because they will never be this small again.

I also love getting everyone all snuggly on the big bed. The art of the everyday happens right here.

But my FAVORITE part of this session, even more than the nursery, was big brother. He LOVES his baby sister and it was SO apparent during my visit.

I want to thank this family for inviting me into their home and being SO wonderful throughout the trials of a newborn session. I was able to do my job well because of their easy-going personalities!

what a girl wants.

I am so pleased to feature fellow Boss Lady, Julie Lynn of Julie Lynn Makeup Artistry & Skincare in today’s post! She is girl-next-door sweet with the bonus of being able to flawlessly glue on fake eyelashes in seconds (I’ve seen it). Julie may not literally be next door, but she recently opened her own studio in LeRoy, which is close enough. Her space is in the other half of Stella’s Bridal, and, I kid you not, there’s a chandelier in every room. When I walked in for the first time I was very serious when I asked if I could live there.

Julie’s talents do not end with the perfect eyelash application. She is a makeup artist AS WELL AS a licensed Esthetician (YES, she can fix that one crazy eyebrow), AS WELL AS a licensed Cosmetologist, AND certified in organic airbrush tanning. Let’s just add interior designer to her resume for fun, my pictures don’t even do her justice.

Let’s talk about ORGANIC spray tanning for a minute or seven, because it is chemical free, safe for pregnancy, and there’s a chandelier in that room, too. You’ll have to see for yourself because there’s obviously no natural light in her spray tanning space so I’m not sharing any pictures, but it’s modern and gorgeous just like Julie.

When she’s not airbrushing your face, making your skin look flawless, Julie relies on Mary Kay makeup and skincare to do the rest. Julie, and her services are a MUST HAVE for every bride-to-be. A year and a half ago I was a Julie Lynn bride, so I would know.

Just in case you’re still not sold…
