My anniversary, pics from yesterday's shoot, website plans!

Hi everyone,

Today is my ten year wedding anniversary! I can't believe it, these years have flown by! I really like being married to Chris. We've been through some tough times, but it was totally worth it!

Chris and I on our wedding day, September 21, 2001

This feels like longer than 10 years ago. Haha, things are so different now. 
Moving on...

I had a great time at my shoot yesterday. I've been working hard on shortening my times for hair and makeup. Everything went perfect yesterday, and we finished about two hours before I estimated we would. I was so excited I sat down and uploaded all the photos, then did a quick edit of some teasers.

I really liked how the second outfit Allyson wore was her own. She got to wear it out and about and really show off her zombie makeup. Its fun knowing that when I do makeup and hair for someone they get to leave feeling really confident and happy. It's definitely a perk of the job.

Chris was telling me that by keeping my prices so low, I might be giving the impression that I'm not very good. Like the whole "you get what you pay for" mantra. I hope that's not true. I keep my prices low because I want a lot of people to be able to do it. Please let me know what you think in the comments. I planned on raising prices by about $50 per pin-up shoot, because those are so much work and involve a lot of clothing changes and other extras. For the zombie shoot I kept the price a little lower so friends would be encouraged to do the shoots together. There is a method to my madness too, lol.

I'm calling my friend Tim, who helps me with computer issues, and asking his opinion on making my official website today. No more procrastinating it! I think it will make things a lot simpler for me and my clients. I won't stop blogging though. I like how it keeps me so interacted with people, and with my own goals and every day accomplishments.

Alan McArthur, another Park alumni, is going to be launching his website the KC Reporter in the next few weeks. Hopefully I will be doing some features and photos for him. I will let you  know when it launches, so you can check it out! I've seen the plans, and it's going to be a great news site for people in the KCMO area.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. I should be launching another Youtube tutorial soon! And I'm working on a new pinup makeup look as well.

Love you all!
