I recently had an opportunity to collaborate with the talented Nicki Marie Gazlay, hair and makeup artist, as well as Senior II level stylist at Tangerine Salon, Highland Village. Nicki is super talented. She can look at a picture from Pinterest and replicate it with ease! Her specialties include advanced color, precision cutting, multi-dimensional color, balayage, as well as special occasion hair & makeup! She can do it all! For this pregnancy picture shoot, Nicki provided her hair and makeup expertise. Like I said, she can replicate a Pinterest picture, and she did! We also desired a bohemian look, so she applied make up with natural tones and weaved a flower crown into soft wavy hair.
Nicki was very friendly, professional, and listened to our desires. She worked quickly and even had us do test shots to make sure the makeup photographed according to style preferences. She adjusted makeup until we achieved the look we loved!
Follow Nicki on social media where she posts hair and makeup ideas, including short videos with styling tips!

Nicki would love to provide your hair and makeup for your next photo session with Jennifer Carley Photography!
Once hair and makeup wrapped up, I headed with the adorable expecting parents to a field of wildflowers. We captured a bohemian rustic vibe. The parents also have a touch of country in their blood, so dad to be added a cowboy hat. I love the Texas touch this adds!
We started at a wide open field dotted with wildflowers like black eyed susans and sunflowers! The setting made it quite easy to create the boho style.
Next, we headed to Lake Grapevine right at the perfect time to capture the sunset! There is something magic about the glow surrounding the parents to be.
We wrapped up the evening watching the sun set on the water.
