Screen Shot 2013-01-14 at 11.12.04 AMKate (center) recently turned 7 and she and several of her friends came by for a special “Make Up Party” and Photo Shoot.

It’s been amazing watching her change and grow and notice how different she is from the little girl that lived with us even just a couple years ago.  She’s moving away from being a little girl and moving toward that “tweener” stage.  It’s sweet and a bit bittersweet to.

I set up the studio and created these portraits of all the girls after their make-over, handled by my sister Mary Gronholz, a Mary Kay consultant from Wisconsin who was visiting us as well as attending a Mary Kay conference up in LA.  We held off on the party in order for her to be here for her seminar and were glad we did.

The girls enjoyed themselves and had a great time being “Princess for a Day.”
