Free-For-All Friday: A New Look for Me

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had won a photo shoot in a contest about celebrating self love. Well, I finally want to share the results of that. The photos were shot by the awesome Kahran and Reg from Creative Soul Photography. They made me feel much more at ease than I expected, and it was a great experience. So here goes nothing:


This is one of my favorite photos from the bunch.


Jennae--13Yes, I did take my $7 yard sale chair to the park for the photo shoot 🙂



My husband actually picked this outfit. The shirt says “Creative Genius.” The man has great taste 🙂

Jennae-7522I really did have a great time doing this, and my husband loves the photos. It was the first time in a long time I really got to do something just for me.

In addition to the photo shoot, I also won a makeup session from the amazing Ivy LaArtista. I was nervous about this, because I never wear makeup. Like ever. But I shouldn’t have been worried. Ivy was a true professional and made me feel at ease. She almost sold me on wearing makeup. Almost 🙂

Thank you so much to Akilah from Execumama, Creative Soul Photography and Ivy LaArtista for doing this. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated it!

    You look amazing! I’ve never commented on your blog before but I really wanted to let you know how beautiful you are. Great job doing something for yourself.

    Loving your hair!!! You are so beautiful! You gotta make some large copies, frame them and give them as gifts to your husband. Your daughter is beautiful too! Look forward to seeing photos of you two together.

    YOU LOOK SIMPLY STUNNING!!! You and your team have just made me want to take new publicity shots… amazing! Even though I’m not at all a Tshirt Girl, I particularly like the one of you in the 80s-looking tee. And – is that the chair you transformed into an office chair?!
    LOVE the whole thing! Well done to you all!!!

    The picture is my fav, it’s something about the warmth and lighting. I love your makeup, it’s very natural. I’m on the anti makeup side too because I don’t have the time or patience to apply it, lol.

    I’m glad you had this opportunity, you deserve it -beautiful!
