Headshot Session

Hello!

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day! I just wanted to stop in and share a couple of images from a recent shoot with Lana Ortiz Photography that I did makeup for. Our client Dale had come to Lana to have new business headshots taken.  I love how these came out! Lana does such a nice job of capturing a person's personality and spirit in photos.  I definitely suggest checking her out if you are in need of some new photos for yourself or even of your family!  She does it all!

Thank You To All Of My 2015 Brides!

Well, 2015 ended up being a great year! I had the opportunity to work with so many amazing and dynamic women throughout Upstate New York and the northeast!  I met brides from all walks of life, from their early 20's into their 60's.  I got to work closely with their families and hear stories about they fell in love with their spouse.  I traveled to historic churches, to farms, to swanky hotels, to hideaways beside a lake and everywhere in between!  I am so incredibly thankful that each of these brides chose my services for their big day!  What an honor!  

2015 will also go down in the books for me as well!  After four and a half years with my sweetheart, we ended up tying the knot in October!  It was a neat experience to get to be "on the other side" and be the bride this time. It ended up being the most perfect day surrounded by loved ones!  And to answer your question, yes, I ended up doing my own makeup... ;) 

Also, as I was reflecting on 2015 yesterday, I received the news that Erin Ford Makeup Artistry had been selected for the 2016 Couples' Choice Award on Wedding Wire!  What a wonderful surprise! That really meant so much to me! The award is given out to the top 5% of wedding professionals nationwide, based on reviews and feedback from brides.  

All I can say is that I look forward to all the beautiful brides that I will have the opportunity to work with in 2016!  THANK YOU all so much for your continued support and for choosing Erin Ford Makeup Artistry!  Let's make it a GREAT year!
