GLAMbassador spotlight: Kellie
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.
Lets Meet Kellie…
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!
