How’d I get so lucky?
How I feel about turning 32 today! Roman, thank you for always gifting me a visual to add to my outpouring of words. 📷 @iamrtg I’m all in. I see the light. Gotta keep swimming. Focusing on health this year. It’s the first time I feel like I can look back and have a view. Husband house 2 kids and an ever booming career. #ifeellikecardi You know when people ask, “does it feel different”? I got asked that a lot, about turning 18, then 21 then 30, and about being married and being a mom. And it never really felt different. But I think it’s because I wasn’t looking up. I got to know myself a lot this last year. And I like what I’m seeing... and that includes the quirks. Being present has made me appreciate the special things about today. Every text, phone call, FaceTime... someone took time to add to my pile of happiness. And what more can I ask for?
I’m so excited about Going to France for this beautiful couple on Saturday. Roman and I plan on doing the best work of our career. Provence makes it easy. Vera and Steph make it easy. And so does their l❤️ve. I took this photos from their wedding website. We had a beautiful afternoon driving to #joshuatree with the 4 of us. Talking and laughing - some of us talking more than others (still working on it). Fun facts: 1) found this dress in a rent the runway bag in the back of my car 2) we did her hair and makeup in 5 minutes also in the car. 3) this is how ravishing they look after hours of hiking! Effortless and chic af that’s my friend Vera. I love you and I can’t wait. And if I cry enough here, maybe I won’t cry as much when I see you of in a veil and Never mind. I can’t even write about my best friends wedding without crying.
Rubina is divine and angelic 👼. I haven’t found a flaw. And at this point, they wouldn’t even be called flaws. Makeup details: Matte eyes, crisp liner, red lips, chiseled face. Photo: @iamrtg MUA: @araxjan Model: @rubinik She also did her own lipstick because red lips are a “no for me dawg”.
This legend is my dad. I call him that because he told me I am oblivious to the fact that my father is a legend. He’s a humble man, not a modest one. I hold humanity to his standards, which makes disappointment too easy. I aspire to be this unrestrained, belonging to no institution but contributing to all of them - and benefiting (if you offer food he will never say no). I know Instagram birthday wishes to people who don’t have Instagram can be cheesy and all, but I’m just sharing. He turns 60 today. He rode his bike from LA to DC. He’s biked every peak in America except Hawaii and Alaska. He’s biked mount aragats. He says my son Hayk is the only person he’s been able to impress in America. He believes in revolution. In poetry. He and my mom actually are in a book club. He made it easy for my sister and me to choose wisely the men we call husband ——>dad. He made us adaptable by playing opera at 5am, And pulling on Astgik’s toes to convince her to hike. Her protests never hindered his spirits or his persistence. Because if asking daily got us to hike annually, he said it’s still worth it. @stargevorgyan He told my brother that Ferrari’s are lame because they can’t go where his bike can. He says to play chess not checkers. I can go on and on - and I probably will. But this is my dad. He turns 60 today. He’s the simplest man I know. Married to the extra/est woman I know... who he’s always empowered. @nora_gev. Here’s to another 60 years of showing us what it means to live, to umboxshnel.
How fun was @hellorenny bridal shower? Roman told me that every Saturday 700 drunk Armenian women are released back into society from the different venues hosting baby showers and bridal showers. @vannnnilla_ and I decline to comment. Also, I have this thing about my arms. That I’m working on accepting. So like... this is super brave rn. #thesewingsflap #itsokaya Photo: @michaelbykriskan Tamadan: @hellorenny Me: @araxjan [single] Dance 💃 mate: @vannnnilla_ Fun fact: there was a controversial round of musical chairs... hishum es Ren?
I think that losses like this, put societal resilience to the test. Losing someone we shouldn’t have, someone so necessary. Happy birthday. And I hope that his passion opens doors for the next generation of authentic adventurers with an open heart, palate and mind.
My cousin Romela was the first client photo I posted on Instagram in 2012. All of our appointments are like this. My chill fights with her ocd a little bit. And she leaves beautiful, I leave a little better than I was last time I did her makeup. It’s always a win win with winners like @romela_ovsepyan Photo credit: Roman @iamrtg Blowout: Anni @anni_sepi Color: @hairbyelya at @universal_cut
Raffi is 2 today!!!!
Being in my Natural element really helps create more organic updos. That really is the most 2018 thing I’ve said, but it’s true. I liked working on Annie last weekend because I wasn’t thinking of anything except the hair and how it wants to be gathered. And I like the results! Which is cool Che?
I don’t post enough photos of my work because i always hate it once it’s posted. Yes. I’m fishing for compliments. Go on....
This was not planned, but I’m so happy we did this photoshoot. These are from September 2017 Right before you two were pregnant @stargevorgyan @anipookie. Guest appearance by @shay_zeinali Thanks for leaving the pool for this @iamrtg
