Instamix: Tutorial Filmed, Leesburg E-session & Sunday Brunch

Hey everyone! I’ve been waiting for this weekend for awhile only because we gained an extra hour of sunlight — that’s like music to a photographer’s ear. Also received pretty great news that I can’t wait to share at a later post. Until then, let’s get on with Monday updates. =)

  • Filmed a tutorial that I hope to edit and post by this week or next — fingers crossed! Can you guess which look I did? 😉
  • Then rushed out to an engagement session, but first hair and makeup for the bride-to-be. I never really know what makeup or hairstyle I would do until I meet with the client. So this hairstyle was the result after I was finished.
  • After the session, my clients took me to a restaurant in Leesburg called Lightfoot — had amazing oyster apps and entree.
  • Then, had Sunday brunch at Chef Geoff’s with Casie. Unfortunately, my phone did not reset itself for DST and I was late to brunch. Sorry Casie!! Aside from that, it was great catching up on all things blogging and photography. Also, second time being at Chef Geoffs and the place did not disappoint. This brie-filled french toast was too darn good.

Also, I have already announced the winners to the Blog Re-Launch Giveaway on my FB page, so be sure to check out that to see if you are a winner. Winners will have one week from today to get back to me, otherwise I will need to redraw. Again, thank you everyone who entered into the giveaway! It won’t be the last time I host one, so be sure to follow blog for updates. Alright, time to tackle Monday. Hope you all have a great week!
