Disclosure: I was chosen as a makeover model for Allen Taylor Photography in exchange for this post. All thoughts and opinions remain my own, and I highly recommend Allen Taylor Photography!

Working with kids and with horses I don’t usually wear much make-up and usually just end up putting my hair up in a pony tail to get my hair off my face in the warm classrooms (since they don’t all have AC in them, can you believe that??) or when I’m at the barn with the horses, so that my hair isn’t in my way. So I’m pretty much a no-frills girl on a daily basis.

Being at the barn a lot around the horses and just spending a lot of time with animals in general, combined with the fact that I work in all sorts of different classrooms in the schools, I never know if there will be AC or if I will be roasting and sweating all day. Given this, I don’t bother getting all prettied up and spend hours doing my hair and make-up. If I’m just going to be sweating it off and having my hair stick to the back of my neck, I’d rather not and just be comfortable!

However, lord knows I could use an updated photo of myself for my blog and it is fun to get all dolled up for special occasions! LOL

For special occasions I usually just end up getting my hair and make-up done by my wonderful hair guy Richie Roman, since I’m not very talented in that department since I don’t do it on a regular basis. I am way too much of a perfectionist, it would take me days for me to be happy with the way it turns out!

When I found out that my friend Wendy was seeking a couple of volunteers for makeover models to photograph, I jumped at the chance.  I thought this would be great fun to do this for Allen Taylor Photography, and to get some more professional looking pictures, instead of the down and dirty ones from the barn for my blog (see below)! 😉

So here are a few “Before” photos: Nothing fancy, just plain and simple.

Mister Man





Now the “AFTER” Photos: Photography by Allen Taylor Photography & Hair & Makeup by Wendy Chen. Wendy did an awesome job! I love how natural it turned out and I didn’t feel like the makeup was caked on and fake looking. Or that it was too much, that I didn’t even look like myself anymore. Allen did amazing job of capturing it all for me. 😉



Now for the hard part and where I need YOUR HELP!! I cannot decide which one of these four I should use on my “About Me” section here on my blog. Which one do you think would work best? The one that gets the most comments /”votes” for by my readers is the one I will use! So thanks in advance everyone for your input! <3 🙂

Now I just need to do this for myself more often. 😉

You can find Allen Taylor Photography on Facebook as well! I cannot say enough good things about them! I had a total blast spending the afternoon with them!!  🙂

  1. They’re all beautiful pictures, but I like your smiles in both shots on the right best. They look more natural to me.

    You might want to consider cropping above your breasts (or not, your choice). You’ve got a nice pair, BUT the eye tends to go to them, and you want the eye focused on you, and on your face. (At least, that’s what people told me when I faced the same choice, and I think they were right.)
