Win a Glamour Photoshoot

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, and even though we are still in August, I decided to create a giveaway to a woman who has battled this type of cancer. Having lost my mom to this disease about 11 years ago, when she was only 56 and recently having one of my sisters also diagnosed at only 38, this is very special to me. My sister is cancer free now, but it’s not an easy battle to go through physically, mentally or emotionally for anyone involved.

So I wanted to create a contest to provide a pampering day that would be all about the winner. This lucky lady will then pick a special woman in her life to have the photoshoot with: a mother, a daughter, a sister or a best friend… and both will receive the top prize, a value of approximately $3,000. 

To enter and to learn the details of the giveaway, please take a moment to scroll through this page:

What is a Glamour Session?

It's a photoshoot where you will be pampered with professional hair and makeup, play with different outfits for a editorial, magazine style shoot, while enjoying some music, champagne and laughter and having fun alongside the women you love most in your life. 

It's so very important to exist in photographs, not only for yourself, but also for your loved ones and my job is to capture the most beautiful photos that you have ever seen of yourself, while providing you with a fun experience and a day that is all about you.
