My Shine: A New Look for Me

I know that I haven’t exactly been posting here regularly, but I did want to share something with you, since so many of you were supportive in the first place 🙂

Remember my last post for the “Shine” contest? Well, I actually won! I finally want to share the results of that. The photos were shot by the awesome Kahran and Reg from Creative Soul Photography. They made me feel much more at ease than I expected, and it was a great experience. So here goes nothing:

This photo above is one of my favorite from the bunch.


Jennae--13Yes, I did take my $7 yard sale chair to the park for the photo shoot 🙂



My husband actually picked this outfit. The shirt says “Creative Genius.” The man has great taste 🙂

Jennae-7522I really did have a great time doing this, and my husband loves the photos. It was the first time in a long time I really got to do something just for me.

In addition to the photo shoot, I also won a makeup session from the amazing Ivy LaArtista. I was nervous about this, because I never wear makeup. Like ever. But I shouldn’t have been worried. Ivy was a true professional and made me feel at ease. She almost sold me on wearing makeup. Almost 🙂

Thank you so much to Akilah from Execumama, Creative Soul Photography and Ivy LaArtista for doing this. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated it!

Stick around for a while!


  1. You look beautiful honey 🙂 I know you dont remember me, but I once asked to get my website redesigned. I am actually looking to start a new website/blog and I will be needing your design works soon. Hopefully we can work well together.
