Today is our Cherieneversary. One year to this day we got an email from a sassy five foot Canadian makeup artist who had just moved here from Vancouver. She was looking to network and good makeup artists are like gold to photographers. Over the course of the months that followed I discovered that not only is Cheriene a talented make up artist, she’s also a fantastic stylist. Through collaborations with her I have taken the sort of photographs that before her I just imagined taking.
Cheriene has also quickly become one of our most beloved friends. To attempt to describe someone with so much personality in just another few sentences or paragraphs isn’t something I have enough skill to do as a writer. I would probably end up going off on some hilarious tangent and leaving my audience confused, which incidentally happens to us quite a bit when talking to Cheriene. She is beautiful, talented, funny, stylish, and smart. Melissa and I both love her, and hope we never have to give her back to Canada.
Unfortunately we’re on the road today, so we can’t celebrate the Cherieneversary in person, but I felt like someone so important needed a tribute blog post in honor of her awesomeness.
