The day of Karen’s shoot was really chill and relaxed…kinda like her…which was exactly what I needed because of course… I’m always spazzing out on shoot days. See, putting together your complete vision is wayyy different from just being able to show up on set and do make up. lol I wish it was that easy because that part I have down to a science…. but I’m on a journey bringing this vision to life and it’s so HUGE…so beautiful…so genuine… and even overwhelming sometimes. I wouldn’t sit here and lie to you guys and say that I have it all figured out. I don’t have a mapbook or any blueprints to this thing… Im just trying to honestly find a way to express whats in my heart with people who inspire me. Karen is one of those women who inspire me. She’s driven…she’s hardworking…she’s successful…but most of all…she “get’s it”…and I recognized that the first time I met her.
