Vendor Spotlight: Introducing the Fabulous Jennie Fresa, her magical Beauty Library, & her makeup styling to boot!

When I met Jennie Fresa at a bridal event this year, we chatted briefly and discovered that we both had lived and loved in New York City and honed each of our crafts there before moving back to CT. Infected and affected by her energy, I was hoping to work with her at some point. Little did I know that one Little Miss Fresa would be emailing me a few short weeks after we met, putting in a request for me to shoot her new makeup studio and makeup line. Would I be interested in doing something like that? Hmmm....wait a minute, let me think....why yes, yes, I would. Of course I jumped at the opportunity to work with Jennie and shoot her new space and new mineral makeup line. When we spoke, we also decided that models would be a necessary part of this endeavor, so as to showcase the makeup styling of Jennie, and give a look into the vintage space that is the Red House, where the Jennie Fresa Beauty Library is located. So, let me paint a picture of the this day for you: Jennie Fresa doing the makeup, Kelly Sharkey on hair, dresses and accessories from White Dress by the Shore (thank you, Beth Chapman!), and Josie Jolon from Beneath the Gown helping with dress (and underneath the dress) styling. Much gratitude to Yumiko Fletcher of Hana Floral Design for providing the flowers for the shoot. Many thanks to our beautiful models, Dina, Rachel, and Kelly, who looked absolutely stunning. You can find out more about Jennie Fresa at jenniefresa.com, and she is available to provide you with all of your makeup needs. Things were a-flutter, starting with my trigger finger releasing that shutter. So, here's what I got.
