FAMILY Magazine mom profile

The May FAMILY Magazine issue is out and we had so much fun being a part of it.  Adora was a little crazy at the shoot.. but she’s just 2 after all. Special thanks to photographer Cyndy Porter and Cornwell Styling’s James and Carla. The team was phenomenal and SO patient! Being interviewed by veteran writer Charlene Giannetti was a great experience too. You can find the magazine pretty much everywhere across town.. but you can also check out the digital copy.  We’ve got behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot too.

BTS: FAMILY Magazine Photo Shoot

A few months ago FAMILY Magazine contacted me and wanted to see if Adora and I would be up for shooting a cover for their May edition. At the time I hadn’t told anyone I was expecting but felt I had to spill the beans to the editor-in-chief Brenda before saying yes. She was thrilled to hear the news and since the May magazine is a moms edition she thought it was perfect. We did our first cover with the magazine in May of 2011.. it was right after Adora was born. Man, how time has flown by… and she’s grown so much!

We wrapped our shoot and it was tons of fun.. although Adora wasn’t the most cooperative when it came to shooting. Photographer Cyndy Porter was so great and understanding. Afterall, the little munchkin is only two. Special thanks to James Cornwell and make up artist Carla for their great styling. We can’t wait to see how the shots turn out. More to come… in May!

Powerful Makeover: Everyday Woman to Superhero

Local makeup artist Nour Kazoun, is making everyday women in DC into superheroes! She explains how DC is a pretty conservative place and so her mission is to bring the level of artistry found inNY and other fashion capitals to DC. She picked these women because they are the DC woman – and DC women have ambition, and drive on its own is a super power so why not create our own super heroes that live in the Capital of the world?!

heck out these ‘wonder women!’… For more info about Nour Kazoun’s work, check out Made.Up.Art on facebook HERE! Photography by : Mykl Anthony, Hair executed by : Elegant Hair by Giselle, Character concept and Makeup by MadeUpArt Makeup by Nour.



Nour did my make up for a magazine shoot.. and did this in 15 minutes before the Newsbabes Bash! I told her “Make me J. Lo” ha!
