This only happens once every two years. Where I have to get on the other end of the camera and get my pictures done to refresh my about me page on my website and my profile pics on all my social media accounts. It’s embarrassing….so not me and there is a reason why I take pictures. But I have to admit it’s fun to get my hair and make-up done and get all dressed up once in a while. Again I don’t do this… but when I do I have to go all out and have fun with it.
So I basically called an entire team to help me out… my amazing friends…ones that I’ve acquired since working for the wedding industry. Carolina my personal paparazzi has taken my pictures since I started my business. I love her to death and since I’m so comfortable with her I’m able to sort of be myself and just laugh the entire time during the shoot. This talented gal is responsible for all the images below and making me look good!! I also hired and commissioned a friend… the talented designer Camilyn Beth. I’ve always wanted her to create a dress for me… I had a vision and luckily her FW line matched what I was looking for and she made the Mercury dress in black for me. Oh I just love her and her designs. I’m hooked!!! Last but not the least my hair and make-up…. Kelly Anne is a dream!!!! Her make-up skills is very much in demand for weddings here in Sarasota. I couldn’t be anymore proud of her and her talent. She gave me my first lashes ever. I love them… and felt like a girl the entire time. Her make-up application…. flawless. And my hair…. boy Alissa has been styling my hair for 5-6 years now. I love my hair and it looks perfect because of her. She just gets it and understands exactly what I want.
I almost forgot about my jewels…. I’m fortunate that I’m married to a jeweler. No no I don’t own massive jewelry pieces but I do get to borrow what I would like to use but then have to return them promptly. So so sad…. so Amir … thank you for my amazing earrings, watch & bangle!!!
I love all my friends dearly…. and all the help they gave me when I had to put this shoot together. I hesitated on blogging these images as I prefer the attention to be on my work and clients. But I had to brag to the top of my lungs on how amazing everyone was and they made plain old me look all glamorous. This really is all about them! I love it!!!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
