My First Photo Shoot

On Saturday August the 3rd, I did a photo shoot all dolled up for the first time. It was an assignment from my therapist, now my gender therapist. She wanted me to get an idea of how I would look in a wig and makeup and dressed as well. It was the first time I put on a full face so to speak. It included foundation, of course. In addition I used an eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, mascara, and lip gloss. I didn’t use blush as I had not purchase any as of yet. I had put on a nice dress, hose, and both flats (my girlfriends) and black heels with a strap (my own).

I dolled myself up on a Saturday after my wig and makeup came the day before. After I came home from the pool after getting a little sun and a swim I started my makeup routine. First I applied the foundation (my girlfriends), then I penciled my eyebrows, applied eye shadow, and put on mascara. Finally, I put on some lip gloss, and donned my wig.

My first shot at makeup

We started out with my girlfriend taking the pictures. She had some trouble keeping the phone camera steady. But, I also took a bunch of selfies. It was fun doing different poses, and trying different facial expressions; the whole time trying to look as feminine as I could. At the end of the day I was happy at my first attempt at being all dolled up as I call it.

Since this photo session, I have had several more, plus a couple of times dolled and just hanging around the apartment. It feels so good to look like a woman all be it with some manly features (just being honest). I love it so much it makes me want to go out dolled up, like to dinner or shopping. But not quite yet, I need to be more comfortable with the world seeing me dolled up.

  1. A large percentage of of whatever you articulate happens to be supprisingly appropriate and that makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. This piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this topic goes. Nonetheless there is actually one particular issue I am not really too comfortable with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the core idea of your issue, let me observe just what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Nicely done.
