Silent Night, with Jenny Oaks Baker & Alex Sharp
Enjoy the beautiful music (above) as you read over this post!!!
Merry Christmas to each of you!! This “Silent Night” music video is one I worked on, doing the makeup & hair on both Jenny and Alex.
It’s always a blast to work with Jenny–I love that girl–she’s such a cutie and so much fun. She’s got the spunkiest cute personality and keeps me laughing non-stop! She’s the bomb!! 🙂
I hadn’t met Alex before, but it was such a pleasure to work with her as well, she was so gracious and kind. She was really a sweetheart.
But the most amazing thing about working on this shoot was to be completely immersed in such beautiful music for a day. It was so heavenly and truly peaceful and uplifting. I really enjoyed it a lot and know you will too. Here’s a sweet reminder of how beautiful this time of year can be–if we let it.
Here are some more pictures from this shoot:
This was a cute moment, when Jenny’s dad stopped by for an unexpected visit. I love how, as a parent, your children are always your children, and what they are up to is always important to you.
And one last thought that we posted on our FB last night…. “We finished the feature film we’ve been working on-whew!! And yesterday was the first day of Christmas shopping this year–eek!
As people cut me off in the parking lot and pushed their way into lines, it made me think of the crazy business and the hustle and bustle that’s so easy to get sucked into.
I looked at the Christmas stars adorning the shop I was in, and saw their sparkle–so simple, so peaceful, so beautiful and bright…and I got it.
It really doesn’t take much to savor the beautiful moments that we can all feel in the next few days. No matter how hectic, how difficult or how sad our circumstance is…it’s up to us whether we will feel the joy of the season or not. It’s a choice.”
May you feel the peace and abundant love that awaits you this holiday season. Even if we feel hurt, lonely, or sad, the fastest way to heal is to reach out and do something kind for someone else…another way to feel peace is to count the blessings in our lives–they are there, sometimes a little more hidden, but if we seek to see them, we will find them.
Have a beautiful, Silent Night tonight.
Enjoy and have the merriest Christmas ever! 🙂
