Fashion Makeover | Fairfield, CT Photographer

As part of an on-going effort to help mother’s retain their sense of selves after children, ModMa partnered with a local Fairfield boutique, Minette and Rook, to do a mama “what not to wear”. Essentially, the mom cleans out her closet or enlists the help of the store owner, Lauren, to clean it out together and they pick out a few pieces that are salvageable and some that just need to go. Having worked with ModMa in the past I was enlisted to take pictures before the fashion fix and after Lauren’s intervention. Lauren will be offering local media outlets the opportunity to gain her insight as to what was “wrong” with the first look and how she turns the look into something that works with the current season. Our model is ModMa co-founder and my wife, Alison Smith.

As a photographer I rarely end up in the picture but apparently I was in need of a man makeover. Lauren took me on for a “before & after” shot as well. I think my wife was planning this the entire time.

Well done! We like the "before and after" shots! I love the outfits. My husband thought all of it looked cool, but he's also been wearing the same denim jeans for 4 weeks lol. He enjoyed learning a thing or two, and seeing the photographer's makeover!

I can't tell on some of them which is the "before" and which is the "after" (except, of course with Mark's). Can you enlighten me?

The before is always on the left. In some cases the outfit is the same and there is no before and after.

Very great blog. I have learned so many things about fashion makeover. I can apply it for my husband since he is just plain with his get ups.
