3rd Annual "Mommy & Me" Mini Makeup And Photography Session

It's that time of year again and I am teaming up with wonderful child and family photographer, Abbey Lindsey, of Dylan Blue Photography to offer our "3rd Annual Mommy & Me" mini makeup and photo session next month, on May 22nd.

Us moms are always behind the camera when it comes to photographing our little ones, but we're never actually in those sweet pictures! Well here's your chance to actually be in them, WITH your kiddos!  We've had such a positive response to this event over the past couple of years and have held one in an Atlanta, GA and two in Athens, that we kept getting requests to do another one! And what better time than before Mother's Day! (hint hint to any Dad's out there that want to impress your wife with a  wonderful and timeless gift!).  This is also open to expectant mothers (hey, the baby is in there isn't it!!), grown mother and daughter duos, grandmothers and granddaughters, etc.

Abbey and I have enjoyed doing this so much because:
1. we both love love children (she has two of her own, I have three!) and
2. we love seeing the sheer joy on the moms after they've been pampered by getting their makeup done by me, and when they see how easily their children react to Abbey (she has mad baby/toddler skills at making them smile!!) and the photographic memories she is able to capture.

So if you are in the Atlanta or Athens area, don't miss out on this event next month!

Please contact Abbey at dylanbluephotography@gmail.com to reserve your time slot - hurry they go fast!!  
Hope to see you there!!

Jenny, i need help please! My Mom is 63, fair skinned, light blonde hair, blue eyes, a few wrinkles, but with a great complexion. She wants to look her best & her tired routine of foundation, translucent powder & matte lipstick just make her look older than she is, imo. She wants me to help her, but i really don't know what to recommend for a lady her age. I'm thinking getting away from the powder & toward a more dewey look would be best, but would LOVE your opinion! What do you think ab tinted moisturizer, cheek stain & lip gloss for women her age? Would that help? Thanks for any advice you can lend-i'd appreciate it!! :)

Ally, you sound like you've got the right ideas to pass onto your mother! She's super lucky she has a great complexion (usually the fair skinned older ladies do bc they don't have sun damage/age spots to deal with!) bc that's half the battle with a new look.
Tinted moisturizer is great, Laura Mercier is the BEST on the market in my opinion. Cheek stain is good, especially for a dewy look as long as her skin is pretty normal to dry. I would stick with a peach based pink if she is fair.
Matte lipstick is sooo aging (especially if it has any brown in yet- yuck!) so I would definitely recommend a more hydrating and sheer lip look. Drugstore wise, I'd recommend L'Oreal Infallible lipgloss in the plumping formula for a big fuller lips (all lips get thinner as we age, so it's youthful to plump them up!) Hope this helps- you are a sweet daughter to get her out of her makeup rut!!
