The sweetest Thing

Is having your mother. The memories as a child filling your head after a familiar smell. A childhood picture that brings warmth to your heart. The memories. If only we could just take those memories and put them on tape from our heads, we would watch them forever. I wish i had more pictures with my mother and family growing up, but I only have them in my head and heart. I hope these make you fill up with hope and love, and bring back your childhood and family's sweet memories. This family reminded me of all of that.
like being in your mothers arms as a child

Morgan Ashley Featured in Glamour Magazine


Its one thing to work in a great wonderful amazing salon, but to work in one where your boss is so awesome and legit she gets asked to do hair for a big time magazine...Yeah. I love my job. I love that I'm surrounded by amazing opportunity and talent everyday. Glamour Magazine did a segment on Natalie Holloway. She was from a beautiful city called Mountain Brook, Alabama. They interview her best friends and talked about their happy day's with Natalie. They did the shoot here in Birmingham. Morgan was part of the shoot being a trooper while trying to do the hair in 100% humidity. Not easy she said.
The article is in this October issue of Glamour, pick up a copy and turn to page 360!

So cool to see our salon name in the magazine!

A st. Augustine Wedding Part 2

The reception was held on a rooftop overlooking the Atlantic waters. So beautiful. The weather was PERFECTION. Even with three hurricanes in the Atlantic. While and the bride and groom were off taking their pictures, we were being served cocktails and amazing shrimp, crab cakes, and some little thing full of perfection that had cream cheese. I may or may not have gotten full off of the appetizers.

Right after the First Dance and some more mingling we were all escorted inside to this cute little brickwalled room full of elegance. The lighting was mainly candle light so these are just a few of the pictures i was able to take.
Photobucket
and here is the picture thats filled with all the MorganAshley Studio Salon girls! Love them all!

Soooo I don't have any dancing pictures because you better believe i was all up on that dance floor. Im pretty sure I broke my toe I broke it down so good.

We wish you the absolute best and endless years of happiness Megan and Daniel! Have a wonderful Honeymoon! (If Daniel gets strep throat, let me know....i'll mail you Avatar)


A St. Augustine Wedding Part 1

This wedding can be described in 2 words. Beautiful and Fun. It was such a quaint intimate wedding, which made it memorable. Megan (which is another wonderful and talented stylist in our salon) was absolutely beautiful!  Her bridesmaids, her sister and friends, Lindsay and Samira (2 other stylist in our salon) were gorgeous as well! Now, by no means was I the photographer for her wedding, but me being me, I wanted to get a few shots here and there for the girls back at the salon that couldn't make it. So I had to be pretty careful with not getting in the way of the real photographer. But before she came, I got to pretend I was for the 'getting ready' time.
Megan, in all her beauty.
