We had a beautiful video made ( if you haven’t seen it you can check it out here). But unless you’ve had a glamour session yourself, it’s hard to describe exactly what it’s like. A few weeks ago, we invited Tracy from ChickChat to have a contemporary glamour session at the Landmark. Since every one of these types of sessions is for two, she offered the additional spot to a fan of ChickChat. And Lena was the lucky one Tracy chose. Lena shared with me about her experience so I asked her if she’d be okay with me passing on what she wrote (along with a “before” photo which she provided) :
“Janell – I just wanted to say thank you and let you know a little about my experience of my recent Glam Shoot. I was admittedly a little nervous, I am not typically a person who spends a lot of time on my hair and makeup. From the minute I walked in I felt welcomed. Shauna and Missy made me feel comfortable. They were excited about the clothing options I brought and offered me some yummy food to eat while I got “primped.” My nerves started to melt and I absorbed their excitement and I felt like I was with friends. Once the shoot started I wasn’t sure how it was all going to work, you told me how to stand and where to look. You kept saying “beautiful” and “LOVE!” but I still wasn’t sure. When you showed me a picture on your camera, I looked gorgeous! I was in disbelief– no photo editing, just pure beauty. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, working, and taking care of my son I don’t have time to take care of myself. After the shoot I felt I could run a marathon, I was so confident. Since the shoot the feeling has had a lasting effect– I am more comfortable with my after baby body, I know that my smile and eyes even my body are beautiful! Thank you for this experience, I know you put a lot of time, energy and heart into this shoot— Your special touches made this shoot a memorable experience. Every woman should do this at least once! -Lena”
