The Makeover Inc Review

(The Makeover Inc)

We were invited to The Makeover Inc for a photography session.

My dad was a vivid photographer. I remember spending many weekends with my father at East Coast Park posing for pictures, while my dad conservatively snap with his Nikon FM2. The luxury of taking photos in photo studios were rare for the common people. And sad to say, I don’t have many family photographs to remember my father by.

This is why I often make the effort to take more pictures for my own family. (and this also explains my obsession over good cameras!!) I hope the pictures I take today would be a talking story board for my kids or grandkids in time to come.

This is the third time we are taking our family’s portraits in a studio. But, this experience is different from the other 2 we had.

The Makeover Inc is a one stop service.
Vast expertise ranging from make up, to hair-dos, to image styling
to photography and last but not least, digital imaging.
Just one stop to turn from Plain Jane into Diva-licious…..

The service we received at the front desk was impeccable. We were made to feel right at home once we walked through the front doors.

But however, the make up was not quite what I expected it to be. Being a professional in this field, I was expecting a more ‘dramatic’ kind of make up for studio photography. The make up artist explained that since it was a family shot, make up was kept at a minimalist classic look. But, was happy to accede to my request if I wanted it any other way.

The photographer was a young chap. Friendly & easy going.

Even though it too the kids some time to get warmed up to studio settings, the overall experience was pleasant. It wasn’t easy coordinating 5 smiles to simultaneously go off at once at the photographer’s command, but we managed somehow with some wonderful pictures for keepsakes.

It takes a total of 14 days after your makeover to receive your photographs in print.

But, I was pleasantly surprised upon receiving the photographs. It was way better than what I’ve expected. I love these photographs. And would recommend The Makeover Inc to anyone.

Let the photographs do the talking…..

    Those are great family photos – photos are a great way to keep memories alive, it’s good to hear other families are making that a priority. As a photographer I always have to remind myself to get in the pictures from time to time so my family will have memories of me as well.

    Love the pictures! Sometimes I think the simplest, most candid ones have the biggest impact. Last November we had our family pictures taken. Not an easy task with our 17 year old daughter who has moderate cerebral palsy. I loved all of the pictures we got from our friend who is also a professional photographer. I picked a few, got one in a large canvas and waited. When they arrived, my husband and older daughter were completely disappointed I blew up the traditional picture rather than the fun one with all four of laughing. A few weeks later (and another big check), we now have a wonderful fun picture instead of the expected blasé one I originally picked. Go for the fun pics!

    Great pics. This is something our family needs to do. We haven’t had formal pics for about nine years – sad. Lots of snapshots though that I love to scrapbook.

    Oh I love the photos! Such an adorable family! I also love that the company is a one stop shop for make-up, hair, and whatever else you want to look pretty before your pictures!

    One thing is for sure when it comes to photography nowadays — it’s much easier and cheaper to have these keepsakes than it was 25-30 years ago or longer. Technology has been great in that field, making it so it’s easy for everybody to make memories and keep them! Good photos, too! That place looks like it does a really nice job!

    Great pictures! I love having good family pictures…and we take a lot of them and most of my kids scrapbook them. I think pictures and videos are awesome to keep family memories vivid…the kids remember family trips in ways that wouldn’t be possible, given their ages, without pictures and video.
    I love the idea of the one-stop shop…we have a family portrait appointment TOMORROW at our Church and I’m a little worried about getting 5 kids and 2 parents looking great, coordinated….and smiling!

    Adorable pictures. Wouldn’t it be great to go back there every year and have an album of the growing up years. Each picture is cuter than the next!

    Hi Irene. Thanks for sharing this post. Your family and the photographs are beautiful. I like the more classical approach that they take to make-up.

    I was reminiscing the other day about when our daughter was little. We didn’t have all the wonderful online options for our photos. You had to buy film for your camera and then pay to get it developed. There were many rolls in our house that went undeveloped due to a lack of funds for developing them. It could get really expensive if you were taking very many pictures. Now we don’t think twice about snapping many, many pictures because we don’t have those costs to deter us.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful family and these pictures.

    We are getting new family photos next month and it will be the first time doing so with two kids now. I am already stressing about how they will turn out. It was so hard to get it to work with just the one kid in the past. So, needless to say, I am super impressed about yours with three kids! The ones with the glasses were a fun touch!
