Mrs. D is coming up on celebrating her and her husband's 16th wedding anniversary, and she wanted to do something special for him. It turns out that each year they trade off on who gets to plan their anniversary, along with gifts, etc. What a great idea! This year is her year, and she's always wanted to do something like this, and now was the perfect time!
At her consult, she revealed to me that her husband loves golf, so of course we had to incorporate that into some of her images! She kept saying that she wants to lose those last 10 pounds, but I assured her it wasn't necessary, as it's all about posing and wardrobe anyway! That put her at ease a little more, she ended up choosing the middle Passionate Collection, which included professional hair & makeup by Kate Tuma, mimosas, a cheese & crackers platter, and a $50 gift card to Tres Chic Lingerie.
At Tres Chic Lingerie, I arrived ahead of her so that I could hand pick some items in her size, and have everything all ready for her to try on when she got there. She had lots to choose from, and even when she was skeptical of some pieces, she was a trooper and tried them anyways. Her favorite was a full lacy, pink dress that came alive when she put it on! She chose a bright pink and black corset as well, and we paired it with the Studio black lace robe. The raspberry teddy and vibrant blue teddy popped against her tan skin and ombre hair. She also loved playing with the Studio Closet's light pink fur shawl.
I loved working with her curves and finding her best angles that flattered her body type. I kept showing her the back of my camera, and she loved what we were capturing. I know her husband will be completely shocked and be a happy camper when he receives his album!
At her Viewing & Ordering Session, she kept cursing in disbelief that who she was seeing on the screen was really her. She was so excited she kept hitting my leg and saying, 'No way!' It was a wonderful moment! She upgraded to the 8x8 Classic album and chose the black leather along with the Metal Inlay of her favorite image. She added an additional 23 images to her album, and we spent lots of time designing her album right there, so that she would know exactly how it would look. She loved the process, and can't wait to surprise him! She will most likely be bringing him in to view the images himself, and have him pick something for Christmas, Valentine's Day, Father's Day....the one gift that keeps on giving!
