Glam up the Afternoon #1 * Montevalle Park, Chula Vista * 04.13.2019

Glam up the Afternoon #1?? Yup.. there will be a #2 (coming soon)!

Being a mother, I feel like our needs tend to end up at the bottom of the list. We are usually the last to sleep, the last to eat. We strive to preserve memories of our family and are always taking photos but are rarely in them. Thank God for selfies, or I might not be in any photos at all. I felt like I’ve disappeared from photos, or I’m rarely in them. Ironic for a photographer right? No! I guess it’s because we tend to always be behind a camera and rarely in front of it.

So, I decided to see if this was something other mommies felt as well. And I was right. So, in celebration of Mother’s Day, which is coming up VERY SOON, I wanted to celebrate us, mothers! I found a makeup artist – because I know not everyone can do makeup – including me. I set up two dates, and I made this into an event where moms can GLAM UP – get their makeup done, get photos taken of them, and get away with yummy food and some good conversations with other mommies.

After 10 women and spending 6.5 hours with them ๐Ÿ™‚ (it was only supposed to be a 4 hr event!)…

It turned out to be a huge success! ๐Ÿ™‚ Even one or two, who came expecting nothing, stayed for almost the whole time! We even got a free gazebo – which an awesome person gave to us because they decided to relocate their party! The weather was perfect! The conversation was great!

So without, further ado, here are 10 beautiful mommies of Chula Vista community! Thank you Makeup By Irene Estrada for helping make this event a great success! Your makeup for the women – each and everyone one – was so unique and perfect!
