Happy Saturday! I hope you have the day off and are soaking up this beautiful sunny day! I’ll be with an amazing couple, photographing their love story!
This is Jess. She is a mama, makeup artist, girlboss, and cheerleader for women! She is always so uplifting and truly gives to her community. Love her.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am an entrepreneur, makeup artist, stay at home mom to three kids, and wife. My children are 14, 4 and 1. The oldest is a boy and the other two are girls.
I was a middle school science teacher for 10 years and left when I had my second child. I love helping women feel and look beautiful not just for big special events, but everyday. I love enhancing a woman’s natural beauty and I have the ability to create her a custom foundation that will ensure she looks flawless always. I really love teaching women how to do their makeup as well. My love for teaching will never go away, it has just evolved as I have changed career paths.
I love to read, I hardly have time, but I love it. I have to read a real book and paper backs are my favorite. I enjoy the sense of accomplishment I feel when I get to the end and close the cover. Being a business owner and mom leaves me little time to read, but having a book club that meets monthly really pushes me to carve out time for myself to do what I love.
2. What is a typical day like for you?
My day starts with the wake up nudge from my 4 year old. We come down stairs, I get her breakfast and then its coffee and my gratitude journal. I love writing what I am grateful for and what I want to accomplish that day when I am first waking. It puts me in such a good mood and starts my day on a positive note (no matter how early I am woken up). Sometimes I get to finish my hot cup of coffee, but usually my littlest is waking up before then and its mommy mode until nap time. During nap time I put on my business lady hat and get to work, answering emails, responding to calls/texts, and growing my business.
