So, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. And I’m pretty sure every single blog post I write begins this way… lol I swear I have brilliant ideas and so many exciting things to share with all of you but somehow they never seem to find the surface!
I’m here to say, I adore my career people!! AbsolutelyLOVEit.
Between freelancing with Miss Darci Amundson (best Boudoir photographer of all times ever) To weddings with YOUR GLAM TEAM (we will pamper your socks off) and back behind the chair again at Sola ARVADA, I get to meet so many different individuals from so many different backgrounds! During consultations and throughout services I ask my clients questions, lots of questions. Not only about hair and makeup preferences but also about their lives. Selfishly its because I know there’s still so much to learn about life. I was once told “everybody you meet knows something you don’t” And while thats true, deep down, very tenderly, I really just care about my guests lives and experiences. I want to know your life. All of it. Iwanttoknowwhat’sgoingonThe deepest, darkest parts. The beauty rising out of ashes and every single triumph.
I take these ‘client’ relationships seriously, (really you guys are secretly my best friends) if that’s ever questionable I apoligize and ask for another chance!
Most recently I encountered a brunette ((dye))ing to be blonde.pun intended. As most of us know, THIS CONVERSION IS NOT A ONE TIME PROCESS! But that’s another blog for another day. Anyways, she spent umpteenth hours in my chair the past 3 weeks.. probably 10-15 total. This time spent together was something I cherished so deeply. (Legit, I came home today…reflected long and hard ) Not only because she trusted me with her long locks but also because she trusted me enough to be vunerable and exposed. Disclaimer, she hadn’t known me previously. She told me her story, her fears, her hobbies.. basically everything. After 15 hrs one would think you run out of things to talk about but honestly I think we could have kept going… it made me think about how far I’ve come. I used to dread talking with people. Now I love it. It’s a true answer to prayer.
I’ve come to realize, we’ve all got baggage, some worse than others but in the end I think we’re all here to help each other get through it. If we’re willing.
I say all this to conclude how thankful I am. Not only for each of you as individuals being present in my life but also you helping me strive in the industry I’m so passionate about. For helping me grow!
