Hi friends!  It’s time to announce the SECOND annual Sparkle & Celebrate PINK event and shout out to find participants!

 

Cotton Rouge & Co/Cotton Rouge Photo, Staci Gibbs Make up and Mirrored Images Boudoir are teaming up.  Together we have created a vision that I would love to share with you as we gear up for year two of this amazing event.
Katie and I, as boudoir photographers, seek to empower women to accept and love themselves and we strive to help them embrace who they are inside and out.  With October (breast cancer awareness month) quickly approaching, we want to contribute to the celebration of life and survival of those who are currently fighting or have conquered breast cancer.  We are inviting 10-20 women to participate at each location (details below).  We strive to show off the bravery, strength and courage of women who participate.  There is no fee for the women, all artists are volunteering their time and talent to this cause.  They will be provided with professional hair and make up (from Cotton Rouge & Co and freelance artist Staci Gibbs from Atlanta) as well as digital files from the shoot.  We will do mainly group shots but also quick 5-10 min shoot with each woman alone.
 We have already started to receive interest from women in the area and know that this could benefit well over 20 women, we would like to hear their survival story and then begin the daunting task of narrowing the participants.  Please know that we will include as many woman as humanly possible, even if that number is over 20.
Detail breakdown:
Day One:
Where: Cotton Rouge & Co Studio: 250 Mill St, Taylors SC 29687
When: Sept 23  starting at 10am
Day Two:
Where: Mirrored Images Boudoir, 800 Georgia Ave Suite 5 & 6, Gainesville GA 30501
When: Sept 30  starting at 10am
What: As described above we are providing professional make up and hair, as well as a photo session (group and individual) to survivors and fighters of this disease.  Participants must be willing to sign a model release (allows all artists who have volunteered their time to publish/post images and share this incredible experience with others), must be 18+ years old, be willing to travel to location above.

** ADDED BONUS ** ladies who participate, The Teal Magnolia Salon in Cumming, GA is offering complimentary cut/color/style options for you as well!

There are NO FEE’S for participants.  We must be able to verify that you truly are a survivor or current fighter of breast cancer.  We want to provide a day of fun and celebration to these women, a day they will remember and cherish for many years.  Help us celebrate YOU.

Heather is one of the few clients that I’ve actually cried with.  I do my best to keep my composure when our clients tell us about their lives – but sometimes I can’t.  She told me the story of her deceased husbands addiction to opiate pain medication, an epidemic I’m very familiar with, and I couldn’t hold my emotions back.  Luckily, our moment(s) of tears happened before makeup and hair so for her first session so we were ready to rock and channel that emotion when the time came.

As a nurse, people open up about their life because they feel like they can and they should.  But as a boudoir photographer, when someone opens up to me I like to think it’s their CHOICE.  You don’t have to tell me anything about your life or why you’re sitting in my studio, but if you do it’ll make your experience that much better.  Not only will the emotion show in your images but the session will truly be like therapy.

Lets Meet Heather…

I lost myself in a dead marriage.  My husband passed away after several years of being addicted to prescription pain medication for an injury.  The injury and the opiate pain medication changed who he was and changed our marriage.  I allowed myself to believe every hateful and demeaning word said to me for a long time.  I came to a crossroad in life and was given the opportunity to start over.  Mirrored Images came into my life and has given me a new view of myself.  I have put every bit of myself into my family for over 15 years and last year I decided it was time to do something for myself, finally.  I couldn’t have picked a better starting point.  I love myself first for the first time in 20 years.

I have shared the pictures with family, friends, co-workers, and my new boyfriend.  I have had more uplifting comments and support than I ever would have imagined.  Most of all I can teach my two daughters exactly what a beautiful woman is, not just what is in magazines.  I have cried over my looks but you gave me a light that everyone around me sees now.  I tell them of my experience and they are amazed.  All of my friends know that my life changed the day I had my photo shoot.

 

Heather has had TWO shoots with us in the last year, here’s a few shots from each.

Kellie is one of our OG GLAMbassadors.  We met shortly after I opened the studio, she stumbled across our work and decided she needed to do a boudoir session.  She never had the thought prior to, and the changes she’s made inside and out have been remarkable.  She takes times for HER now… as we all should.  I love her spirit and we are grateful to have her on our team.

I am 45 years young, a wife of 15 years and I have 3 children ages 24,12 and 11. I was married to my oldest childs father for 4 years and divorced him when she was 2. I was a single mother for about 6 years before I met my husband and moved 2 hours from my family and friends.
 
Ive spent the last 15 years at home raising babies, being a wife and taking care of everyone except me. I gained 30lbs and really didn’t care about my appearance. I lost my best friend, my father in law and my father to cancer all in the same year and became extremely depressed. I had always been a little depressed because of the lifestyle we led. My husband is completely opposite than I am and its been very hard on me. I literally woke up one day and said ” that’s it. its time to do something for me’. I started losing weight, wearing makeup again, buying new clothes and spending time with old friends back home. I could feel “myself” coming back to me and it felt so freeing!! I’m determined to not be back in that mentality and I know I’m going to have to make some major changes in my life to become truly happy again. 
 
I found Jenn last summer and she made me see myself in a way I never had imagined. My husband is not a very affectionate person and it has done a number on my self confidence and self esteem. I booked the session for myself and its been life changing for me.
 
 I want to be a glambassador because I believe in Jenn’s vision for all women to see themselves through her lens. It would give me joy to mentor to women who are in similar situations that I have been through and it will bless me to help just one. I believe I have a lot of knowledge to share because of the experiences I have had in my 45 years of life! I learned so much from my own mistakes and I see and hear women taking the same path as I did and it is heartbreaking! 
 
 I feel like I deserve the position because I am OLD and I have scarified myself to everyone else for so many years and its time to have something that is just for me! I am a social butterfly and even though I moved here 15 years ago I still don’t have many close friends like I do back home. AS women and mothers, we give so much to others and rarely take time for us. We need to remember that even though we are wives and mothers, we are still female and need to take care of ourselves and embrace our feminine side. If we don’t, there’s a chance we will loose ourselves. This is do know from experience! 
 
 As a glambassador I will promote self love, self empowerment and encourage women to embrace their inner beauty. My moto has always been “pretty is as pretty does” (thanks Mom) and if you have an ugly heart, no amount of Staci Gibbs badass makeup skills can make you beautiful!

I am a mommy to a 2 year old boy, born and raised in Honduras. I grew up in a very poor family, no tv, no electricity, no real bed and with an outhouse that was about 50meters from the actual house. Lol!!! When I was 13 I got my residency in the USA through my father. I remember I’ve always thought I was fat and felt shame in my body. Looking back now, I don’t know what I was thinking! At the age of 18 I joined the Army, at 23 I got married, during those married years my already undervalued self worth went rock bottom. I remember blaming myself for the way I wad treated, “I wasn’t pretty enough, I am not fun and overall not good enough” I felt I deserved to be hit and even the most inadequate woman on the planet. 2 years after my divorce, I am still struggling with those demons but I’ve come a long way! I’ve have found passion in exercise! I’ve learned to view myself positively, even though I still have a lot of work to do. I want to empower women through my transformation. As it stands I have lost 40 lbs and huge amount of body fat! Before I started to lose weight, I made a conscious choice to notice the beautiful things about me, and that has helped me get this far!!!

 

Finding beauty in our flaws. Fighting through battles, finding or keeping the courage to improve one’s self worth. When you start to love yourself you begin to see yourself in a different light, suddenly you feel more beautiful and worthy. But you were always beautiful, you just need to find ways to make those the highlights in your life.
