How do you celebrate a 90 year old grandmother’s birthday that she can see over and over again? Take her to Glamour Shots!
To say the least, my family is very visual. Growing up in a deaf family, the “eyes” have it! The deaf members in my family may not be able to hear but they SEE everything!
Visual – Visual – Visual was a huge motivation for gifts to my mother, step-father, and grandparents.
I made an appointment at Glamour Shots to have my grandmother’s picture made for her 90th birthday.
The most make-up my grandmother wore was rouge. That’s what they called it in her day. We call it blush.
So when they styled her hair, applied eye make-up, foundation, and lipstick, and put her in fancy clothes and a cowboy hat, she thought “what a big fuss.” She had no idea how to “strike a pose” but they showed her and made it a big deal of how beautiful she looked, especially at 90 years of age.
She loved it and began to have fun being made up like a movie star! The final product? She looked like the famous actress Mae West!
