I haven't been on IG much lately being busy taking care of my sweet 1 month old daughter, getting ready for an epic trip to Russia and taking care of #klavazartists brides. As much I would love to hang out here more, a few minutes every few days is all I can or choose to do right now. #priorities
So I'm popping in to say hi with this #behindthescenes of our stunning bridal photoshoot #3brides3rings3ways at the lovely @thevanitearoom. I don't look like this right now with my hair all messy, comfy jammies and a no-makeup tired face of a busy momma who just put two kids to bed, so it's nice to for me to have a reminder that there are days I can look this bright and fresh haha! ... on another note - I could have taken photos of that beautiful wall mural behind us all day!

The final touches before the big reveal! It is such an exciting moment for the bride when her bridal look comes together with all the details like hair, makeup, accessories and dress! She has been thinking about and planning this for a long time and it is so satisfactory to see her vision come true.
I consider all of these details too when I create a bridal makeup look to make sure that her vision is perfectly complete!

A great addition to the summer #skincare regime is #rosehipoil! It has the perfect cocktail of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids to help repair the #sundamage from UV rays our skin suffers during hot summer months. Also it is wonderful for hydrating damaged skin, #antiaging, help with healing scars and #skinglow.

I geek out on cosmetics ingredients and how they work, but I won't bore you with all these details. :) Just trust me that your sun parched skin will thank you! I have sensitive skin that is also prone to breakouts and this oil works very well for me without irritating it.
I add two drops to my morning serum - easy step that takes extra 2 seconds. Also don't forget to add some to you décolletage - we get a lot of sun exposure there!
I have this organic one by @sukinskincare, but there are many brands that make them.

I have been thinking a lot about connecting and being present in the moment with my loved ones lately. It doesn't matter whether it's your groom, husband, kids or friends. How I experience my family and friends all depends on how present I am as its happening. If I set aside other tasks and stop thinking about what needs to be done next and only focus on the dear face in front of me I always walk away with a satisfied heart and feeling even more love for them! It's not easy and it takes a concentrated effort sometimes to be present in the moment, but oh so worth it!

Thank you @paulsandersonphoto for the lovely image of my bride!

Busy day for #klavazartists today with 3 big #weddings, multiple #bridal trials and inbox full of 2018 inquiries! It still blows my mind how organized today's #brides have to be to plan and book their #weddingvendors a year or sometimes even 2 years in advance! 👊 to you lovely brides-to-be!

I love when I get to work with the same women again - doesn't happen often in the #wedding industry! I got to see almost all of these ladies from last year's wedding again this year. Last year #bridesmaid Andrea was this year #bride. And the bride from last year, beautiful Vanessa, was 8 months pregnant at her friend's wedding. We got to compare our baby bumps 💕

I'm happy to see how life unfolds for my clients and it's pretty awesome that I get to be a part of their big milestones - engagement photoshoot, wedding, maternity photos, friends' wedding etc... Image @unioneleven

Taking a break from an everyday #businesshustle to spend time with my newborn has been therapeutic for me! I knew that the last year was stressful juggling home/work and growing my business. But because I love what I do so much, I really didn't mind being busy 24/7 and working under stress has always pushed me to produce better results. However, now that I feel more like my old pre-business self and much more relaxed, I realize just HOW stressed I have been! It's funny that it took having a new baby for me to realize that! :))) So here is to knowing when to take off your work shoes, kick back and have some fun or simply chill out! Please remind me to revisit this post in a year when I'm back in the full swing of a busy wedding season! 😜 📸@bgawley

Love working with #talented #photographers who don't settle on ordinary! @melanierebanephoto is one of them. Her #boudoirphotography is on the next level and I'm always excited to see the results of our work together! "I know I have done my job as a #boudoirphotographer when I have captured her beauty and vulnerability as much as her strength." - Melanie Rebane

I said I'm taking July off work to get into the groove of our wonderful baby girl addition to the family. But I just couldn't stay away from participating in this epic #bridal #styledshoot with an amazing team of #ottawawedding vendors!

I couldn't be on location of the shoot in Merrickville's beautiful manor, so I lived vicariously through everybody's IG stories! It wasn't easy because all I could think about is what if the model needs a touch up or some makeup tweaking?! 😨

Now seeing the #sneakpeak I can hardly wait to see the photos!!!

Now is the season for waterproof mascara, but it's not a great idea to wear it everyday because it can really dry out your lashes and make them more prone to breaking. If you find that the heat is making your regular mascara melt under the eyes resulting in a not so lovely racoon eyes effect, then you can use waterproof just on the bottom lashes and your regular one on the top.

My favourite waterproof mascaras that stay really put are Eyes to Kill Waterproof by @armanibeauty and In Extreme Dimension Waterproof by @maccosmetics. It's hard to find a waterproof mascara that will give you volume, but these two definitely deliver!
