For Your Eyes Only Photoshoot for Her
THE BEST EVER GIFT EXPERIENCE!
FYEO Portraits ROCKS!
I am a 38 year old mother of two and wasn’t very confident in the way I look due to putting on a few stone over the past year or so....
I was given the opportunity to go and have a Hollywood Glamour shoot at FYEO portraits on my birthday this year, and OMG what a fabulous morning I had!!!! I can’t express enough how welcoming and friendly all the girls in the team are! They make you feel so welcome and genuinely make your experience one of the most girly fun days you’ll ever have!!!
After booking my photo shoot over the phone I received a confirmation email from Jamie , one the photographers, detailing where to go and what to bring on the day of the shoot.... I arrived at the FYEO studios High Wycombe on the morning of my birthday with my bag of accessories and underwear and was welcomed at the door by Alex, my photographer. Alex was lovely, so bubbly and friendly she made me feel instantly at ease as she welcomed me into her studio.
Alex then took me into the makeup room which was so pretty with lots of canvases around the room of other women that had also had portraits done, the pictures were so inspiring that I couldn’t wait to get ready and see if I could also look as good as the wonderful images!
Charlie was my make up artist, she was lovely and chatty! We had a good natter whilst she applied all the right make up for the shoot, which in itself shows her talent, as it probably wasn’t that easy applying makeup to a chatterbox like me!! She did a fantastic job! I looked and felt so glam!
Alex then came back in to the make up room and she explained how we were going to do the shoot to make the most out of my new curves and make me look and feel more confident.
We then moved into the studio which was the next room away and we looked at all the items i had brought with me ready for my shoot. Alex had lots of props and items of clothing in the studio also which was great as i was allowed to borrow them too! We then decided together on what i should wear and got changed ready for posing!
Alex was really good at explaining every step, and we had such fun in getting the props and positions in the right places to make me look my best!
What was great was that I wasn’t made to feel that I had to strip off or show anything that I didn’t want to. My shoot was all about glamour and making me look and feel womanly and celebrating my new found curves!
We were in the studio for about an hour and a half which just flew by!
I was shown how and what positions to make at each stage, Alex was brilliant at directing and even directed me on all the slightest accent moves like where to look and how to tilt my head in the right way!
When the shoot had finished i went back into the make up room and had a drink whilst I reduced my make up ready to go home! Charlie was on hand if needed too!
then when I was ready I made my way to meet the girls in reception where they told me how the images were going to now be airbrushed and touched up to make them look amazing.
I received my gallery to view this morning and WOW!!! I couldn’t believe that it was me!!! My confidence got up and danced around the room!! My photos were amazing!!
FYEO is an experience I would recommend to everyone no matter what their size is ... the girls make you look sensational and I feel so much more confident! I can’t wait to show my photos to all my friends!!
Thank you so much to all the girls! I will be back for a couples shoot next time with my boyfriend! He was gobsmacked by the way!! :D x
