Chasing dreams

Ever since my youngest daughter, Lauren, could dress herself she's always had a flair for fashion.  She's loved hair and hats and accessories for as long as I can remember.  In fact, one of her elementary teachers said  the hi-light of her day was waiting for Lauren to get out of our car each morning so she could see what wild hair do and accessories she would be sporting.  The girl had no fear.  She would wear little scarves and bandanas,  headbands with different colored braided "hair" and hats of any kind…you name it and she's tried it.  When she got older she dyed her hair every color imaginable…even  had a big blue streak at one time.

So as adult, when she decided to go into the "beauty business" it didn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows her.  In fact she has been doing up dos for proms and weddings since before she even had her driver's license.  The girl's just got a gift when it comes to hair.

And that is where her heart is…making people feel unbelievably gorgeous on their special days.  I love seeing my girls pursue their dreams…doing what makes them happy and blessing others at the same time.

So when she told me she wanted to create a website to pursue her business as a hair and make up artist …. well I was tickled pink.  


She hired my amazingly talented friend, Danielle to design her little corner of the internet.
Here's a peek….
 and then she called me on the phone and said, "Mom. I need to do a makeover on you and have a "little" photo shoot." 

Well we don't do anything "little" in this family.  It may start off little but always turns into full blown productions and this time was no exception.  After a full backdrop, four outfit and hairstyle changes,  dragging one very reluctant sister on board and her daddy as the photographer,  we called it a wrap.

Here a few of the pics from that day….


You can go check out Lauren's new blog and the rest of the photo shoot here.
I absolutely can't wait to see all the inspiration she will be sharing.

I'm so proud of Lauren.
I'm proud of all my girls.
I love when they step out and take chances on their dreams.
I have a feeling this is only the tip of the iceberg.
That makes my heart happy.
I pray they never stop chasing their dream.

  2. Who could have imagined when they were toddling around and sitting in our laps that we'd discover one day grown up girls are the absolute best! Wishing your daughter lots of happy hair-doing : )

  3. I can't tell you how much I love this! My cousin was the same way, always fixing someone's hair or a baby doll if no one was willing to lend her their hair. Your baby girl is super talented!
