I was young once, skinny, beautiful. Did I appreciate it? No, like many women, I yearned for other things - you know the stuff ... straighter hair, longer face (though I liked my nose!), slimmer tummy, straighter teeth. Now I'm 50 I realise how very lucky I was, and I just wish I could have appreciated myself for who I was when I was younger. So, many years later, here I am, more than 3 stone heavier, wrinkles starting to show, grey hairs in abundance, same round face but I am so happy with who I am and how I look. Thankfully.
When we do our CityShoot Makeover Photo Shoots in LIverpool we hear the same things time and again from the women, young and old, slim and curvaceous, who come along to enjoy the Photo Shoot. They didn't know they could look so beautiful, they'd forgotten they could look so good, and our favourite, they didn't know their husband still loved them this way. So we decided to celebrate women as we celebrate Zoe turning 50. This year we are going to photograph 12 women, 12 real women, and give them that wonderful experience of feeling good about themselves. For free!
What do you get? Well, firstly, you have a little bit of pampering with getting your hair and makeup done, followed by an hour long photo shoot in and around our Liverpool studio based in the city's Georgian Quarter on Hope Street. Then you get another bit of pampering at the Hope Street Hotel and return to view your photographs, when you get to choose one picture as a keepsake. We know you're going to love all the pictures, so we'll give you 20% off any purchases you make on the day ... and if you want to go away and think about it, well that's ok, we'll still let you have 10% off for up to 7 days.
But remember, you are going to love all the pictures, so before you put yourself forward to be selected as one of our special 12 real women, make sure you are prepared for one of two things - you'll either need to get your cheque book out, or you need to go out and about and tell all of your friends about the experience. Every referral from you who books a CityShoot Makeover Photo Shoot with Zoe Photography in Liverpool will earn you credit towards pictures from your own shoot!
One more thing though. Zoe's husband has MS, and so we ask that for everyone who is photographed you put between £5 and £10 into the tin as we will be making a donation to the MS Society, our chosen charity.
So what are you waiting for .... if you live or work in Liverpool email us today with your details, telling us why you want to be one of our 12 real women. We look forward to hearing from you - firstname.lastname@example.org
