I could list a lot of valid & noble reasons why it’s important to have a good photograph of yourself, but  in all honesty, the best reason is to have the most beautiful and sassy side of you recorded .. forever!  This isn’t just a “selfie” photo of you .. it’s you at your best, feeling & looking beautiful and having a beauty photographer who can draw out of you what you feel but don’t always show.  It’s the hair, the makeup, the moment, the “woman”ness (yes I’ve just invented a word haha) all wrapped into  timeless and treasured photographs.  Don’t you want memories for you & your loved ones like this … not just crappy mobile phone pics?    >>>  So call me!!!
