Being a mother and a photographer, I can tell you exactly what goes through a mom’s brain as soon as she’s booked their family session. Outfits, weather, nap time schedules, the entire family’s cooperation — those are just a few of the things she’s going to stress about before the photo shoot happens. And being a mother, she will put herself last (kid(s) and husband always comes first) and really start to stress when she’s realized she has nothing to wear, her hair is not cooperating and her makeup is the same makeup she’s been wearing for years. (Been there, done that!)
Wouldn’t it be great to show up to your family session with all the confidence in the world? Wouldn’t it be great to know that you are put together and will be looking like a rock star the entire session? During my last session, Krystle took some time right before the session to have her makeup airbrushed by professional, Katie, and had a blow out, too! A blow out in the context of her hair being blown dry and styled. And y’all, she ROCKED their family session. It was HOT, it was dinner time, and there were bugs — but, she looked like she walked off a page from a magazine the entire session. That’s exactly how I want to feel when we take our family photos this year, and I plan on it.
To see exactly what the process looks like, I spent some time with her at SpaOne80 to get an up close and personal look at what goes in to the airbrush experience.
The girls came in with clean faces to start the process. And then Katie began to work her magic. First the eyes, then the airbrushing, and then the final touches!
Wow! I’m a believer, and I’ve already told Katie she needs to put me on her book so I can feel put together during our family session and not worry if my makeup is sweating off!
Katie is offering a $100 special for an airbrush makeup makeover and a blow out! Go spend a little time and treat yourself.
Take it from this photographer; a mom who comes to their session knowing their hair is as it should be and their makeup is on point, the entire family is relaxed and a good time is had by all!
