Retiring Portfolio Photos

So for those of you who have been following my blog, you know that I haven't been doing makeup for too long. June 28th will mark my "One Year" of officially being a makeup artist Yay! :)

This year's experiences have been tremendous, and exciting, and super memorable... "Tremexable!" I could not have done it without the support and encouragement from God's blessings, Honey, and my friends and family.

This past Saturday, we had a magnificent time at the first Jo Chow Summer Makeup Event! (Much much more on that to come later.) As I was able to have some awesome photographers come and help with taking photos, I have decided to retire my old portfolio pictures that have been up on my website for the past year. I will soon be replacing them with some of the work done at the event this past Saturday.

*Happy Times*Happy Times*Happy Times*Happy Times*

I will definitely miss these portfolio pictures being up on my webpage. I remember each and every model friend and the trial that produced these before and after shots. Every experience was a learning one, and I am so grateful they allowing me to use their faces as a canvas.


Jenny and Cheng's Wedding

Who: Jenny
What: Jenny's Wedding Day
When: Saturday, June 13, 2009

Working with Jenny on her wedding day was really a treat. I had saved her makeup application for last, and in the time before it was her turn, she was the perfect host! Not only was she offereing me food and drink, she was also taking the time and effort to make sure everyone else in the room was taken care of as well. I loved how she was so calm and perfectly at ease...even when both Margaret and I had to work on her at the same time! Jenny was truly a no-drama bride :)

Waiting so patiently for the makeup and hair:

Makeup and Hair at the same time!

Jenny was such a good sport with this photo :) I LOVE this shot!!!

Jenny and Cheng's Wedding (Bridesmaids)

Who: Jenny's Bridesmaids (Yisi, Cora, and Shan)
What: Jenny's Wedding Day
When: Saturday, June 13, 2009

I thought I'd focus this entry on Jenny's bridesmaids :) Margaret and I met up with the bridal party on Saturday morning. I had such a fun time with Yisi, Cora, and Shan. I thought it was so cute how they had all slept over and were still in their PJ's. It reminded me of the sleepovers I used to have when I was younger. It was extremely easy working with the bridesmaids and they were so supportive of Jenny. Good job girls! Thanks for letting me have such a wonderful experience with all of you!
