Jen's Summer Faves

Summer is absolutely the best of all possible seasons and there is no better way to celebrate it than with great beachwear. My top pick for swimwear is still Eberjey. Granted I wait until the sales but they never fail on quality, plus being extremely flattering and worth the money. I wasn’t even able to choose between their cover-ups and have two contenders- Silvy and Brenna. I have to mention their sleepwear too. I have never come across anything more comfortable and its always on my Christmas list!

Attain MedSpaI actually did my research on the Vampire facial on Attain Medspa’s website as I was so excited at all they had on offer- focussing on this one thing was challenging. A vampire facial is actually Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) drawn from your own body! Here’s the download:

What is PRP and why do I want to use it?

OK, good question and we get it all the time.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a high concentration of platelets in its own plasma. PRP contains anti-inflammatory and growth factor properties. When used in skincare PRP improves collagen, skin tone and texture. When used in hair restoration PRP reduces inflammation,supports hair follicle and stimulates growth.

PRP truly is your body’s own liquid gold.

How do you obtain my PRP?

A small amount of your blood is drawn and from there we attain your own PRP. Using your own PRP to restore, regrow and rejuvenate all over the body.

Do all your treatments include PRP and is it required?

No, we offer a variety of treatments and combinations. With so many benefits, we encourage our patients to learn and explore the treatments using your own PRP.

Can I use PRP on more than one area of my body?

Yes! It is not uncommon to have a PRP facial the same day as a hair restoration treatment or scar brightening session. Please let the physician know as soon as possible so that we can draw enough PRP for multiple areas.

Attain MedSpa assure me that they treat the natural effects of time, sun exposure, and life events all over the body, using a variety of treatments. The best part, ALL the treatments are same day with little to no downtime. Great for erasing years of discoloration, fine lines, sagging skin, scars, and hair loss in short, pain- free visits.

 

The question is not whether to visit but what to choose!

 

 

 

The Memories We Miss

by & filed under Portraiture.

Jen FamilyThis is a treasured possession- my one and only photo of me with both my parents. It’s fading and I will be scanning to preserve what is left of the pigment in this old Polaroid. Perhaps this image is why I was so careful to capture each of the girls as they grew. Being part of a photographer’s family certainly didn’t hurt.

That being said the picture came to mind as I worked with a client who has become a good friend on an album I wish I’d had of my family. As she and I went through tons of images it gave me such joy to assist her in creating a “through the years” album of her husband and their children growing up.

I was so pleased with the resulting album and worked side-by-side with the designer laying out the pages and telling the story of this dear family. It struck me as I worked that there is no wrong time to begin making memories. Perhaps you feel the same. If so, please call me at the studio at 201.610.1199 to begin your own family album with a session with us.
