Next, Christy did an amazing job curling Natalie’s hair with the straightening iron.  It looked so gorgeous!

Natalie got highlights right before her appointment, so first Christy blow dried her hair to make sure it was totally dry before applying all that heat.

Behind the Scenes at Megan’s Session with Rebecca Houlihan Photography {Mason, MI Photographer}

Megan’s session started off with tons of fun!  Here she is getting the royal treatment from Christy and Jenn.  Megan was super worried all her curls would fall out (she said they usually do!), but Christy is the master, and guess what?  Her curls stayed for her entire three hour session!  Awesome!!

Time for a hair change!  We stuck with the boho look for Hannah, but Christy took all those curls and tamed them into a gorgeous fishtail.

Behind the Scenes at Amanda’s Session with Rebecca Houlihan Photography! {Lansing, MI Photographer}

So, here is our very first EVER “Behind the Scenes” coverage! How cool! Amanda had a great time! It was all laughter and chatting the entire time. There is never a dull moment when hanging out with Jenn and Christy and I’m sure they would vouch for the fact that this is the most fun way to prep for senior pictures… EVER! So, here we go…

First was hair…Amanda chose to go with straight hair which looked sooo gorgeous on her! Christy did an awesome job getting out all those kinks and fluffy areas and letting the natural shine in Amanda’s hair come through!
