Beauty Asylum Charlotte Team Shoot { Sneak Peek }

Business has always been word of mouth for Beauty Asylum hair and makeup. Projects and clients have been consistently growing and this year the decision was made to bring BA to the next level. Expanding to a group of stylists opened so many doors for the success of a small business.  We now have local beauty pros under one roof! 
The vision has never been more clear and I'm more than excited to share it with everyone. BA has grown from a one person show to a business of five ladies representing the hair and makeup industry here in Charlotte, NC.  We are excited to announce our new partnership with Lindsay Wynn Photography under Beauty Couture.  Lindsay has been an awesome helping hand for doing head/ group shots for Beauty Asylum team.  After the pictures were done it made everything official.
"We are doing this 100% percent baby!!"
I am graciously thankful for the multitude of helping hands and inspirational friends I've be blessed with through this chapter.  For now, I leave you with a sneak peek inside our shoot with( L-R ) Carly Sheets, Jessica Clark, Julie Oree, and Brittany Dover. I am so proud to have such a wonderful group of ladies by my side!

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?
