Andrea's Transformation

This was an extra special photo session for Andrea, the Mama Makeover winner. After eight weeks of transformative skill building, coaching, healing, lots of nurturing and support through a wonderful collective of local service providers she was positively glowing.

Two talented stylists provided an additional treat by preparing Andrea for her family photo shoot. Even her daughter Sophie got a little extra sparkle.

What a natural and gorgeous hair and makeup stylist Gretchen Harp created on Andrea. The custom clothes from Sofada were personally styled by the vivacious Mindy Helmer, Andrea’s personal style consultant during the makeover.

I think Andrea really took her husband Dominic’s breath away.

She just lit up the camera with her joyful light. It’s amazing to see what could happen in two months time.

After so many days of rain we were pretty sure it would be an indoor session but low and behold there was a brief reprieve from the daily downpour and we were able to slip outside to capture this lovely family portrait.

One of the several goals Andrea addressed during her makeover involved was building strength, gaining weight and improving her flexibility through private and group pilates sessions with Wendy Foster of mamalates. It’s clear that she accomplished all of these goals by taking a peek at her before and after photos.
