We're Turning 40! (Hair and Makeup)

Isaiah 61:7 (ESV)
 Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy.

Frenchie paying attention to every detail.

If you thought choosing the right photographer was important for our 40th birthday photo shoot, then you probably understand how critical it was to have the right makeup and hair team. Fortunately I have a wonderful stylist who’s been a part of my life for over eleven years. Francoise Gomes is the Owner of Frenchie's Hair Design Studio in Orlando, Florida. She’s well known in the local area and enjoys enhancing the beauty of women. We worked together for weeks to discuss attire, vision, and styling options. 

During my consultation, Frenchie suggested using Natasha Bradley, Owner of Diva's Makeup and Brow Bar, for our makeup needs. Roslyn and I both loved the idea because it was such a great way to support small, women-owned businesses.  If not for her suggestion, we would have ended up at a makeup counter at a local department store.  Choosing this option made our day extra special!

The day started early because we would need to drive to Tampa for the photo shoot.  Frenchie and Natasha (affectionately known as Diva), were the perfect "tag team" duo.  They worked in beautiful harmony together.  They were both serious about their craft yet took time to create an atmosphere of joy and laughter.  Our time with them ended in prayer and a few tears were shed.  We can't thank them enough for blessing us on our special day!
