Mary Kay Memories

About seven years ago, a woman walked up to me in Target and convinced me that I should sell Mary Kay Cosmetics.  She was good, and I’m pretty sure she was one of the ones with a pink Cadillac sitting in her garage.  To this day though, I am bewildered as to what drew her to me.  I was pregnant, chasing around a toddler, and for the record, I’m pretty sure that I wasn’t wearing a single ounce of makeup.  Anyhow, I totally bought in to it, and ended up creating a little Mary Kay business for myself.  My main clients were dear friends who somehow felt called to be super supportive to me in my new venture.  I learned a lot about makeup and skin care and personally really enjoyed the products, especially the cleansers and lotions.

However, seeing as which I still don’t really wear much makeup, and I was adjusting to my new role as Mama to two, my Mary Kay career didn’t last very long.  It was a good life experience and I’m thankful for the lessons learned in those six months.  Thankfully, after another much loved small career as a Preschool Teacher, it was right about that time that God opened up the door to my photography business, which I’m absolutely loving these days.

Fast forward to the present.  Yesterday, my past and present working worlds collided.  My amazing beautiful and dear friend Cindy set up a session for a few professional shots for her Mary Kay business.


Cindy is amazing.  And she knows how to perfectly apply and wear her beautiful Mary Kay makeup.


We had a great mini session at her home, and got some great shots that she will be able to use for her business cards and website.


It was a great session.  And it was fun to reminisce about my Mary Kay days as I photographed a beautifully talented and current Mary Kay consultant.  I’m so excited for Cindy and her business and if you need a great Mary Kay consultant, message me and I’ll send her your way.


It’s going to be a great week for photography.  I will be at Over the Rainbow Preschool capturing the most adorable preschool graduation pictures tomorrow (technically today since I’m writing this post at 12:37am… what can I say, we are totally night owls).  I cannot wait to see the kids and catch up with their amazing teachers.  Then on Saturday, I have a Communion session and on Sunday a First Birthday session.  I’ll sprinkle in a few more sessions next week before we leave.  After a long, cold couple of months, I’m so excited to be back doing what I love.  I can’t wait to share some peeks from those sessions in the days to come!
