When I blogged about the launch of the Be-YOU-tiful brand, I was both nervous and excited. I had no idea if any women would sign up, and certainly didn’t think I would receive as many emails as I did about it. The stories were nothing short of inspiring, encouraging, and some of them even heartbreaking. Hard working women who didn’t feel cherished, appreciated, or beautiful. Moms who desperately needed an afternoon to feel pampered, young women with very little self esteem, and ladies who have just been working their tails off lately and needed a day to relax. I was floored, but also very excited because these were exactly the type of women that I wanted to photograph.

We started bright and early Saturday morning, setting up hair and makeup at 6:30AM and getting ready for the first lovely lady to walk through the doors. The day flew by as we listened to my “girl power” iTunes playlist, watched these ladies transform from their makeovers, and ultimately, shine in front of the camera. They al brought their game face and totally blew me away with how confident and natural they were in front of the camera.

Meet the original ladies of my new Be-YOU-tiful brand. 🙂 I’ll be doing more individual blog posts in the coming week but for now, here are the sneak peeks…

If you or any other women that you know need an girls afternoon out to get complete makeovers and photo shoots done, contact me ASAP. I will only be taking a limited number of sessions each month so as to give each woman the experience that she needs and deserves. 🙂
