Maternity Photoshoots

Maternity photoshoots are an amazing way to capture memories of glowing pregnancy (before the swollen feet and waddle-stage ;)  Let us pamper your beautiful body-for-two and style your hair and makeup for your first baby-and-me pictures!  Use the below as inspiration - there's something for every mom's style!  Be you, love that body, and congratulations!

A little bit at a time

Would you love to shorten your hairstyle but are afraid to make the chop?  Enter: Fringe - or "bangs" - a beautiful way to reinvent any hairstyle.   The most flattering fringe lies just above the eyelashes and frames the face, working with the bone structure to enhance features, rather than fighting to make it's own statement as a hairstyle.  Fringe should never be heavier or more full than the look of the rest of the hair - consider it an accoutrement, not the main attraction.   So go ahead!  Live - a little ;)

Fall 2013 Wedding Hair Trends


Fall Wedding Trends: Sheer Simplicity 

Fall hair trends for this season will most certainly be inspired by colors of nature as well as fabrics and textures that are sheer and neutral. Deep colors contrasted with champagnes and burlap touches, will be a popular canvas for many brides.

Styles will reflect the simplicity of classic simplicity of color and decor choices: low and high buns, sleek and sculpted chignons, and French twists will all offer that much sought-after vintage feel.  Cathedral veils with lace-lining are also big this season.  

I would personally love to see hair accessories used on bridesmaids in varying ways - fresh flowers, boho-chic headbands, and flower crowns are always beautiful accents.  I often suggest that Brides add such accessories to their look, or for their Bridesmaids after group photos or the ceremony for a chic twist to add to the Day's beauty and style!
