    My Makeover Photo-Shoot with Forever Fabulous & The Portrait Room

    I arrived at The Portrait Room based in Delgany, Co. Wicklow for my makeover and photo-shoot. Roger Kenny the photographer and owner of The Portrait Room greeted me, he was very welcoming. The studio is beautiful Roger’s recent work of family, engagements and weddings is showcased on the walls.

    The environment was relaxed and I felt inspired and ready to make this photo-shoot the best it  be. We chatted for a moment about the concept of the shoot, I loved Roger’s vision, he is charming and showed a great sense of humor while also still really focused on the job at hand.  

    I laid out my clothing and we chose the outfits for my glamorous style shoot, Roger then took a 'before shot' of me so we could compare.

    I then had my make-up applied by the fabulous Rachel O'Riordan, she discussed my makeup options and we chose soft smokey eyes and contouring to really accentuate my eyes and face.  Rachel is a pro, so friendly, chatty and has such determination. I felt so relaxed in her company and it’s like chatting to your best friend.

    I went into the dressing room to change into my first outfit; both Rachel and Roger made me feel relaxed and comfortable, while paying me compliments to create great positive vibes for my shoot.

    I had 3 dress changes, they were classy, sophisticated and yet I still felt sexy! I took direction from Roger who really make me feel confident in front of the camera.
