Natural Beauty :: Soft Summer Weddings in Massachusetts

I love when a bride asks for a natural look.  It's fun applying makeup while also making sure not to lose touch of the natural features of the bride.  Ali was a bridal client who was referred to me by another bride I worked with a couple of years back.  (FYI - I love referrals! Word of mouth is an excellent resource for building your business, and it's great for brides to have someone they trust!) Ali and her bridal party all opted for a minimal, soft and natural look.  Their easygoing personalities made it so enjoyable to achieve the look they all wanted.

The wedding day started out raining, but when it stopped, it turned out to be beautifully picturesque, giving the perfect light and canvas for photos.

I feel so lucky for the opportunity to work with such great people.  Another bride I had the pleasure of working with was Annmarie (along with her bridal party!)  We went for a very soft and natural look as well, per the request of the bride.  I loved working with these ladies as they were so pleasant.  Annmarie's sister and mother were a joy!  It's always fun working with such sweet bridal parties, and their sweetness certainly shows in these photos!

A few of my friends did this lesson from her and she did this really well, so I took this course without hesitation and I am really glad to do this from her. She is really talented and professional in this line and moreover, she is one of the best for this course in my opinion.

  5. As the crowd swelled, word spread that our community was too large for an organized march. Everyone decided otherwise, and this community the size of a midwestern city began marching towards the White House, spilling in from all different directions. We chanted “This is what democracy looks like” and meant it and felt it. We joined the chorus of "Black Lives Matter" and tears came to our eyes when our daughters chanted "My Body, My Choice" with other young women, while the adults and men responded, "Her body, her choice." There was no violence, no bad behavior. Everybody was united and peaceful, and through that we were powerful.

    My friend and I plus our daughters made it as close as two blocks away from the White House when the crowd began filtering back. So we slipped away to a less crowded street, and slowly made our way to Union Station, full of hope. I’d never experienced anything like it. Yet, I believe this is just the beginning. If we continue to be vigilant, if we stick together as a community, that hope we all felt will remain. I see from this experience that we all need to do more than we did in this past election. We have to be active, interested, and fully awak
