This International Women's Day, I decided to offer a complementary Makeover Portrait Session to one inspirational Woman. I asked my Facebook clients to nominate a friend or family member who inspires them and tell everyone why they are so inspirational.
The nominations were amazing and it was a great pleasure to read all the motivational comments from women to other women simply acknowledging how much we can inspire each other day to day. Some women were over coming great personal issues while still providing love and support to the people around them, to me that is true inspiration.
It was such a difficult task to try and choose someone from the wonderful messages, and eventually I had to enrol some help! This person will remain nameless as they also failed to be able to choose someone. After sleeping on it and eventually just following my heart I selected Kerry Palmer from Stanley.
I have to say it was a wonderful feeling to be ale to give Kerry the news and she was so excited :) Kerry had been nominated by her friend and a previous client of mine, Faye so Thank you to Faye for her nomination and the wonderful message she had for Kerry. Kerry has had a roller coaster few years battling illness and also dealing with personal problems and all the complications which come with having to leave work and heal. Faye said how much Kerry has supported her and her other friends around her through it all and she has been a positive and motivation role model for them even when times have been hard for her. With such a deserving lady and I set about making all the preparations to pamper her.
Tara Shenton came along to provide her hair and Makeup services and Faye joined us for the shoot for a bit of moral support, but I don't think it was needed we had a great time. Tara did a stunning job of Kerry's Makeover and the clothes were kept simple but glamourous in a monochrome scheme, we even persuaded Kerry to do a little Boudoir posing, which Kerry has decided to keep for her eyes only, and she looks amazing.
My favourite part was when Kerry's Mum came in asking for her and didn't even realise Kerry was right in front of her!
I hope Kerry enjoyed her session as much as I did and I really hope she loves her pictures and the whole experience will give her a little lift, a bit of a boost and the motivation to keep on inspiring the people around her.
