Garden Gifts

Living in the city has been as lively as I had hoped. Four years ago, I moved to the heart of St. Louis City with my S/O Pierre. We love the constant buzz of energy and activity around us, even if we choose to veg on the couch. We are only a short walk away from tasty ethnic local food and friendly wine sharing neighbors. In contrast to the buzz, sirens, and noise of the city is my own little garden sanctuary.

This month’s gift from our city garden is ripe peaches from our first peach tree. I was not sure what to expect or when we should pick them, so we took our time looking them over each day. Picking a few early to ripen on the windowsill, and letting some stay on the tree until they fall off on their own. My final verdict is to check them each day and give them a gentle tug. If they want to come with me, they easily release from their home in our front yard. If they resist they get to stay and enjoy the view another day or so.

Fun with Makeup

Thank you Alicen, Mikayla, Kristin, and Natalie! We spent a chilly Sunday afternoon playing in the studio and getting to know our featured makeup artist Alicen Richardson. Alicen gave each girl a different look to showcase a few options for makeup. Mikayla’s look was very natural with a neutral eye color and a soft pastel lip. A perfect look for a senior photo shoot. Alicen gave Natalie an evening glam with bold tones, lashes, and a dramatic liner. We finished off the day with an editorial look on Kristen. Bright bold colors and drama took her images to the next level.

To book an appointment with Alicen please contact her via email at alicenrichardson@gmail.com.
