I was asked earlier that week from a director friend of mine to do a quick hair and makeup job for a book trailer that afternoon.
So after sleeping in as much as I could at my parents house, Sofie and I got up and headed out again. With all the running around I’d been doing lately with her, I was surprised by how good of a sport she was!
I stopped by the apartment on Capitol Hill to meet up with Jason and drop off Sofie with him for the day while I went to work. I popped by my friends house to do hair and makeup for about an hour, then spent a bit of time doing some prep work on myself since I had some head shots to take that afternoon.
Yes, I said head shots. I decided to try and dabble back into acting again, so got hooked up with a local talent agency that is hiring me on as a stylist as well as adding me to their acting roster! So after spending some time at the agency, I got my photos and then headed home just in time for dinner with Jason and Sofie.
It was another long day, but I was glad that this time I was able to come home and have the whole family together, at home, as it should be.
Progress! Success! (Still about a week and a half to go…)
Saturday came around and it was music video time for a local band Sleepy Pilot. This time, I was only doing hair styling, but I was looking forward to spending the day on a cool set (Antique Mall!) and also catch up with my old friend Kay, who was also the model for the music video.
Call time was not until noon, but I got up early to finish up the rest of my prep work for the shoot. After breakfast I got packed and ready to head out for the day, before I left I remembered to snap a picture of Sofie since I wouldn’t be getting back until pretty late that evening.
I left Poulsbo and made my way up to Tacoma to do some work and make a great video! It was a long day, but the crew was great, the band was great, and I also had a great time exploring the Antique Mall we were shooting in. I was pretty proud of the hairstyle I was able to create also, it will all be shared eventually on my makeup blog!
After a long day of work, I finally got home shortly after midnight. I was so beat, and after a quick hot shower, I headed off to dream land and snuggled in bed with Sofie.
Sweet little Sofie, just what I needed after a long day!
Friday the 7th was another early morning for Sofie and I.
Since my friend Camille’s engagement shoot was early in the morning Sofie and I woke up at the crack of dawn (in this case around 6) to get ready and head over to my her house to help her get ready.
My friend also had a son, just a couple years older, so Sofie and him played together while the adults got to do makeup and catch up!
I was really excited to be able to do makeup for Camille, I hadn’t seen her in ages and I was really glad I got to see her. Sofie also got to make a new friend too, which is always great!
After our morning appointment Sofie and I did a little shopping at the craft store to pick up a few more items for my music video job that weekend. Then, we headed home to hang out and I spent my afternoon sewing and doing more prep work for the next day.
Thursday, I was still busy with prep and errands for my upcoming jobs that weekend. In the morning, Sofie came along with me to my makeup artist friend, Jennifer’s, house to pick up a few wigs for a music video I had coming up Saturday. After stopping by and visiting that morning, I ran up to Bothell for a meeting with a couple more artist friends of mine to discuss some ideas we had for a future new beauty studio. We spent a couple hours talking and sharing thoughts and ideas, I was pretty excited with our plans coming out of it.
Then, after the meeting Sofie and I dashed home to meet with another old friend, who was going to be a model for the music video I had coming up this weekend. After chatting for a little while about hairstyles, my friend left our house. But the day wasn’t over yet!
I had a meeting with another old friend of mine the next day in Silverdale (about 15 minutes from my parents house) to do her makeup for her engagement shoot, so since it was going to be such an early morning meeting, Sofie and I drove over to my parents house that evening to spend the night.
Needless to say, it was a very long day, and we were both very pooped by the end of it!
I had some jobs coming up the end of the week so I spent some time prepping for them.
I did as much catch up work as I could while I had the chance as well since I knew I wouldn’t have time for them once I got to working! Didn’t seem to help me much now, though, haha. Two more weeks of pictures to go!
Ack! Christmas will be soon upon us and I still have so much to catch up on! It’s now or never, so let’s blast through these babies eh?
Monday I was back at my mom’s again for the day visiting since Sofia had an appointment.
It’s been so cold, Sofie and I have usually just stayed cooped up in the house.
I spent most of the day catching up on my blog posts (something I feel like I’m constantly doing), but it was another productive day for the most part.
I feel like I’m always trying to get as much work done as possible while I can, and with a kid it’s sometimes hard to keep on task or get anything done at times, but that’s what comes with the job and I accept the challenge.
Sofie is a such a sweet heart though, even when I feel like I have a million tasks at hand, it’s pretty hard to ignore her. 🙂
Whoo! Well at least we’re in the right month again now. 🙂
I still have a ways to go to catch up, but I’m making progress… (Perhaps one of my New Year’s Resolutions will be to keep more on top of my posts…)
Saturday, December 1st… I honestly couldn’t believe how quickly November had just flown by. With just a blink of an eye, weeks go by, is this what getting older feels like?
I took advantage of my day off and spent as much time sleeping in as I could.
I spent the majority of the day just hanging out with the fam and enjoying my time at home. I tried to do a little oranizing but seeing as I can’t remember doing much, I probably didn’t do a whole lot…
Here’s Sofie baby though, always with the squinty eyes!
Friday was my last day on my commercial job. We mostly needed to get a few extra shots outdoors to feature a local company at work, so work for me was pretty light.
It was our earliest call time, so I snuck out before Sofie woke up.
After grabbing a quick coffee pick-me up, I headed out to meet the rest of the crew to wrap up our week of shooting.
We ended up finishing right around lunch time, so went out to eat to celebrate the end of the week. I definitely had a great time working with the crew, and the parting gift (an ipod shuffle!) from the producer was also pretty awesome.
This definitely gets me thinking that I’m going to need to focus on getting more work like that in the future; it was easy, stress free, and good money, all things that I like!
I headed home a little later in the afternoon and spent a nice relaxing evening with the family. I was definitely looking forward to having some good time off that coming weekend.
