Be Beautiful [Part I]

Over the summer Shauna Veasey Photography and I (Jessica Lyness Kendall) had the opportunity to partner together for a series of sessions called, Be Beautiful. We have many creative ideas we juggle and bounce off one another but this one we decided to put to action. At the time I was in Georgia for a week. Shauna had a window of opportunity to make it happen, why not?  It began with a thought and spun into a wonderful aweful idea once the juices started flowing.

We knew we wanted to give back to women and make them feel beautiful for a day.  It's as simple as is sounds. We are all beautiful and sometimes we deserve a chance to take a step back from everyday life and enhance our natural beauty.  As a wife, mom, and artist I know what it is to get wrapped up in the tasks we wholeheartedly embrace.

Mimosas + hair + makeup mixed with girl chatter and laughter. All this adds the confidence you feel when you see yourself in the mirror. Off to styling + pictures + posing deep in the country fields of south Georgia.

What makes you feel beautiful?

Cam Newton Photo Shoot

Last week I received an exciting phone call.
It went a little something like this:

 "Are you available to do makeup for a celebrity client Friday?"
( ..keeping my excitement to a minimum)
"Yes, I will make myself available."
"Awesome. I cannot tell you who it is but I can tell you he's a celebrity"

The discussion continued a little longer. However, you get the gist of the conversation.  Friday rolls around and I receive another phone call:

"We were informed our client is coming earlier than planned. Can you come sooner?"
"I'm right around the corner be there in FIVE!"
"I'm sure you have a pretty good idea who it is by now. Cam Newton."
( ..a silent YEEE!!)

 I scramble for my Auburn SEC Championship Tee.  My makeup kit is ready but at this point it's about playing the part with Auburn paraphernalia.  I stuff the shirt in my purse and I'm out the door an hour early.  

( forward 2hrs) 

He was cool enough to snap a few pictures before he left :) Overall, it was a great day and a great experience.  For that I am thankful.

Would you be nervous meeting Cam?
