Jena La Flamme / by Lena Chavez

I first had the pleasure of meeting Jena several years ago. I did her makeup and hair for her personal branding photo shoot here in San Francisco. Introduced by Wendy Yalom. We had a great time that day galavanting around. I was honored that she called on me again to help her get ready for her wedding day. I arrived at the beautiful ranch style home in the Berkeley hills in the morning. One of my favorite places to be, also the city where I was born. The air was crisp and fresh. There was good energy in the space and it was buzzing with sweetness and excitement. I had been really looking forward to sharing time and space with Jena again. My job is more than makeup and hair. I help to hold the space during these special times. The time just before you make one of the most important commitments of your life. It's a sacred time.

I was in a very sacred space myself. I was just coming into my second trimester of pregnancy with my sweet rainbow baby. Finally, able to share the joyous news. More about the rainbow baby experience and her older sister in heaven on another post. Needless to say I was floating on my own love cloud!

Jena truly embodies the sensual living experience. It was an honor to witness her magical, powerful ways on that day.
