Sharon’s everday outfit and her new chic business cocktail outfit! This is what she had to say about the whole experience:


“I have had the pleasure of Faith’s services two times now! Boudior photos and this time for Event Styling. She is absolutely amazing! My outfit was picked out for me before we even went shopping! I personally don’t like to clothes shop and that’s why I keep buying the same old things over and over. She put me in an outfit and I seriously didn’t want to take it off! It was thee most enjoyable shopping experience that I have ever had. There were other ladies in the dressing room and when I came out….everyone of them was complimenting me on my outfit! Now that has never happened to me in a dressing room. We all have different body types and she just KNOWS what compliments YOU! I just hit the big 5-0 and felt like a million bucks after a couple hours with her. You are my hero Ms. Faith!”

2014 Model Search Finalist: Lacey's Story

Monday, August 4, 2014

Lacey s a wife, massage therapist and a mother to 3, ages 6 and 2- 2 year olds.  She was chosen as a finalist for our 2014 Emerald Studios Model Search, she is a real woman just like YOU!! This is her story and more images from her trial shoot with us: 

"As long as I can Remember I have had Self confidence issues. I struggled with my weight from young adulthood on, and never really felt "pretty" or like I met societies standards of beautiful. At the age of 25 I had reached a low in my life. I was focused solely on what I was NOT. I was not thin, I was not in a relationship, I was not a mother, ect... At this point I decided to have a weight loss surgery to assist with my long term struggle. Over about a year and a half I lost about 115 lbs. However the weight loss came with its own set of struggles. I still did not look at myself and see "beautiful". Instead I continued to pick myself and my body apart. Because of my inability to love myself, I found myself in a relationship with a man who mistreated me. I stayed in that situation for far to long, thinking that he was truthful in the hurtful and unkind things he said. After one of the many arguments we got into, he put me in the hospital with a broken arm. While there I found out that I was pregnant (something I was told was not a possibility for me). I didn't even know how to take this news. Now looking back I know that my son saved my life. He gave me the strength I needed to escape that abuse once and for all. I had not at that point valued my life enough to leave, but luckily I valued his. After escaping years of physical and mental abuse I decided it was time to throw away the scale I had obsessed over for so long, and change the way I looked at myself. I slowly but surely learned to love myself for who I was and love the way I look even if it wasn't the "normal" beautiful. Every stretch mark on my stomach is a reminder that I was able to carry a baby that I was not supposed to be able to carry. Every dimple in my skin was a reminder of the struggle I met and overcame. I started to look at what some would consider an "imperfection" as something that made me unique. Honestly, being a spokes model for Emerald studios would be an amazing opportunity. I would love for other women who may not think of themselves as beautiful to be able to look at me and see that beautiful is how you see yourself. Beautiful is how you feel, and every woman, no matter their height/weight/relationship status ect is beautiful in her own way. And that part of feeling beautiful is embracing yourself AS YOU ARE and loving yourself for all the good you possess. I also hope that some day, my story can help someone else who is in in a terrible situation find the strength to remove themselves from it. The photo I am attaching is one from the only photo shoot I have ever done. I did it for my wonderful and amazing husband who has been so so patient, loving and kind. He is a truly magnificent person and treats me like the queen every woman should feel like.

2014 Model Search Finalist: Amy's story

Amy is a wife, domestic diva and a mother to 3, ages 20, 19 and 14.  She was chosen as a finalist for our 2014 Emerald Studios Model Search, she is a real woman just like YOU!! This is her story and more images from her trial shoot with us: 

"I believe that all women are beautiful and given the confidence they become even more beautiful. The sexiest part of a woman after all is self confidence. I usually don't make new year's resolutions,  however, this year I felt needed to be different.  Realizing that my self confidence and image of myself had hit an all time low.  Being a mother of three teenagers and having given almost all of myself to my family...I had found myself wondering what I had accomplished.  I have a college degree and have always considered myself to be intelligent...and had even begun to wonder if that was true.  At the end of last year as I began to take a look at the year that was about to be put behind me...I realized that I am about to graduate my second child this year.   Starting to get the empty nest syndrome again in the last two years...instead of feeling proud for what I had accomplished in raising two wonderful adults.  I began to take it personally that everyone was leaving me...what had I done wrong for them to want to leave so bad?  Then I woke up one day and said to myself...I am in charge of my own happiness!   I need to start taking care of me...I deserve it and I am  worth it.  After all how do I expect others to love me and treat me right when I can't even do that to myself.  You set the tone for how others treat you...and this year was going to be my year.  No more boo hooing...more celebrating me and my accomplishments.   Raising 3 teenagers, who in fact wanted to get out in the world and make their own way with confidence and excitement...is in fact a HUGE accomplishment!!!  I have lost 50+ pounds and am feeling better than I have in years...getting older and sending your kids into the world is NOT a death sentence!   It is in fact a new beginning or a rebirth of a real woman...a better woman!  I don't mind getting older, in fact I believe that all of the bumps, bruises and scars that I have gotten throughout the past 41 years are what makes me beautiful...they all tell a wonderful story about me that I don't want to forget about.  I would love to represent your studio for all of those wives and mothers who need to be reminded that they are gorgeous, worthy, and red hot sexy women whose lives are just beginning."
