Glam by Jeet's 1st ever Client Appreciation Bash was this past weekend!!

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share pictures from my first ever Glam by Jeet Client Appreciation Bash that was held at Stevenson Ridge in Spotsylvania on 6/24/18! It was a huge milestone for me, because 5 short years ago, I never thought I could afford to gift something to myself in the future let alone to dozens of clients! I was a mom of a young child and in the middle of a gloomy recession; the future seemed so far away and I didn't have a clear vision of what I wanted to do when I grew up. I am so glad all the little decisions and events since then led me to all of you because I have never been happier, more fulfilled or hopeful for the future! There is no stopping this girl now! For that, I am truly grateful. I would not be in such a good place in my life if I had never met every single one of you. You all have taught me, loved me, encouraged me, cheered me on, and given me purpose. I have surrounded myself with boss ladies that manage to kick ass in the industry, raise beautiful happy children and always push further for success. I just cannot thank my lucky stars enough for all of the good that is in my life now.

This bash was something I felt led to put together earlier this year in the spring. The weather was finally warming up, the sun was out a little longer every day, little blades of grass were pushing their way out of the cold ground, and a new year was literally starting to take shape. I felt a rush of thankfulness and love for everyone that has supported me on this journey and HAD to do something with that positive energy. I was finally in a place financially to set some money aside and shower you all with some great prizes, food and desserts, bubbly drinks, and cookies!! I called up my favorite venue in the whole world with the most insane views and got myself a date on the calendar and then invited all of my repeat customers, photographers that use me often or exclusively, as well as brides of large bridal parties over the last year. Its been so exciting!

I hope to continue this tradition and gather all 850+ of you in one place someday! Thank you for supporting me and making my wildest dreams come true. I love serving people and hosting this event made me so happy. Please email me if you all have any ideas for a future get together!! Vendors - if you're interesting in partnering in the future to host an amazing glam event - do the same <3 

To my beautiful, inspiring husband Jesse- it's been a crazy road, and I hardly ever say it as much as I should, but I am thankful for you every single day. Thank you for telling me to keep pushing forward on all of those nights I wanted to give up, and for helping to raise our gorgeous baby, Gisele on all of the weekends I'm gone to work, while working towards your own huge dreams. You've taught me many things, especially to be obsessed with my business until it's successful, and then to obsess some more. To always be thankful, to always push through no matter what happens. I just love you!

To my spunky, hilarious, incredibly smart baby Gisele-  thank you for putting up with a lot so that mommy can live her dream life! I do it all for you and hope to inspire you to go for your dreams all day, every day. I love you so much pumpkin <3 

A special thank you to Elabee Cine-photography for photographing my event. To The Cookie Momster Kitchen - you have absolutely outdone yourself with the cookies you made for me. I am excited for your future! Stevenson Ridge - the weather couldn't have been more perfect and working together was absolutely amazing. I am so glad many of my brides choose you for their big day. To Jenny, thank you for always coming through and treating my clients with the same respect and love I would!
