Although I love being pampered and beautified, one of my favourite things about being involved with The Beauty Unveiled Project was spending time working with women who are doing what they love. It is inspiring being around such beautiful creative minds!
I wanted to take some time for you all to meet the amazing women behind the Moms Gone Styled Shoot and The Beauty Unveiled Project. They are all so talented!

Adrienne Davis is a professionally trained, certiﬁed Makeup Artist specializing in Lifestyle Makeup application. After years of working in the fashion industry, on both the retail management and wholesale level, Adrienne decided it was time to bring her artistic skill set and keen eye for colour into the world of makeup.

Her philosophy when it comes to makeup application is that it is a tool to enhance one’s natural beauty, never to mask it.
As you can tell from the photos, Adrienne did an amazing job on my hair and makeup. It was first time having airbrush makeup, and if you haven’t ever used it…it’s amazing. The coverage is full but doesn’t feel heavy. Adrienne did an amazing job – I felt gorgeous!

Carly Benjamin is best known for her unique coupling of ‘ﬁne art’ and ‘family’ portraiture – I have worked with her a few times before and the photos she has taken of us have become instant favourites! Her unique style has been described as emotive, whimsical and organic. Carly learned the fundamentals of ﬁlm photography while in high school and later worked as a photographer in a portrait studio while attending college.
Her passion for the craft was reignited after the birth of her daughter. She has spent the last ﬁve years perfecting her trade, teaching herself the digital side of photography and processing and now has a successful fine art family portrait business, Carly Bee Photography.
Her work has been published in “Stand Alone” a conceptual art magazine, and featured on many websites such as newbornphotography.com, childphotocompetition.com, and sparkmyphotography.com. Carly offers gentle direction, embracing moments as they happen, resulting in natural portraits.
