This weekend we pampered our New You for the New Year Winner, Ms. Deb, and this experience was the absolute best!!!
We started with our consultation with the glam squad a couple of weeks ago at Maggiano’s, where we talked all things hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling over the best Italian dinner (and the best lemon cookies, right Ms. Deb?)! After we had all gotten our questions answered and the vision was clear, we were ready to execute the plan.
Fast-forward, fast-forward to the day of the shoot…Ms. Deb’s NYNY experience started Saturday around 1:30 when she arrived at Fabulous Inspirations Hair Salon and Makeup Studio for her hair and makeup makeover! Kristi gave her the perfect First Lady hairstyle, and Heather gave her the most natural glam look ever!!! From there, she arrived on set where Jacobi (of Primrose Image Group) was ready to style her! She had the most beautiful and stylish looks ready for Ms. Deb – one dressy, one casual, and one semi-dressy/casual. Her jewels and shoes were awaiting her as well, so she was literally ready from head-to-toe!
When she made her way in front of the camera, she was a little nervous, but she quickly shook those nerves off and turned on her charm! She gave us the biggest smiles and most genuine looks, and her family was right there to root her on. She was hilarious as every time she turned around, Kristi was there to touch up her hair, Heather was there to powder her nose, and Jacobi was there to straighten her skirt or turn her necklace. She was a real live model getting all of that NYNY treatment, and she deserved every bit of it!!!
We were honored to capture these moments for Ms. Deb, and we couldn’t have done any of this without the squad. That being said, I want to send a special thank you to Kristi Tanner and Heather Tanner, the hair stylist and makeup artist of Fabulous Inspirations Hair Salon and Makeup Studio in Suwanee; Jacobi, the wardrobe stylist of Primrose Image Group in Atlanta; Alice, the friend who nominated Ms. Deb; and to Ms. Deb’s family and friends for being there to cheer her on!!!
