Amazing…. amazing…amazing – if you have had the pleasure of having a photo shoot with Claire Seville then you will understand the excitement going through my head right now…if you haven’t…read on. This is my personal experience and feelings of my day and I am positive that by the end you will be throwing your dishes in the sink for a soak, grabbing your laptop, searching for her website (www.Claireseville.co.uk btw!) clicking ‘Book’ without a second thought….
It’s not very often I get to spruce myself up as a glitzy and glamorous glammer-puss, but this morning was a very special occasion. A pre- booked photo shoot that was just for me. You see, I am a Mother, I work, (as a Trainer in Health and Social Care), and married to my wonderful husband. So, it is safe to say I don’t have much time to myself. My days consist of school runs, washing, ironing, working…. School runs, washing, ironing, working…you catch my drift? Then there are the extra curriculum activities – swimming, ballet, football, (not including school friend’s birthday parties – homework! Sounds tiring! I am sure many of you can relate) Finding time for yourself can be a little tricky – but it can happen! I crave that ‘my’ time. I need to be me, ‘Jennie.’ I can guarantee some of you could be thinking “That’s my life to the T” Then let me explain a little more on why you need this occasion in your life….
Arriving for my 10am slot I was nervous and excited all rolled into one. I met the gorgeous Claire and Kari. Kari was attending to my make – up and hair and I couldn’t wait for the outcome. Seeing the range of brushes, eye shadows and lip sticks I was hooked. This is every girl’s dream, having a makeover. I found myself really enlivened for those pictures. I felt compared to Marylin Monroe. I could easily have skipped along to Breakfast with Tiffaney’s with Audrey Hepburn. Once finished a mirror reflected my appearance “Wow” was my first thought. I felt rather pretty. Next was the garments. The lingerie was etourdisant. This is it I thought – time to have fun. Once dressed I had the pleasure of viewing myself in the full-length mirror. Well let me say – Betty Page would have approved! That’s how these shoots make you feel. How Claire makes you feel. She keeps you at ease throughout and explains in simple detail what you need to do. Simples. You experience a different and lux ours other side to you. I didn’t want to get undressed! I wanted to swan around in a pent house as this sexy little minx I truly felt.
As I sit in my kitchen – concluding my post for you, I smile remembering the fun I endured yesterday. Even as a Mother, Daughter, wife, Career driven – maybe a student – we all need that time to ourselves. I said to Claire “Every girl needs this fun their life!” You leave feeling like a new woman. But you’re not a new woman – you are you! You just need to make that time and book up, embrace your beauty within. You need to show off the real you and be proud of her…she is proud of you every day! This is all achievable with Claire.
You need to let the Goddess in you free!
