Я тут заметила тенденцию, мои клиенты все чаще стали записывать своих родителей. Это так круто! Кто, если не мы, их дети? А они, в свои очередь, проделывают огромные усилия над собой, чтобы принять свой новый образ, чтобы мы гордились ими. Кто-то сразу себя чувствует комфортно, а кому-то нужно время. Но через какой-то период они все приходят к одному - почему же не сделали это раньше? К таким преображениям я отношусь особенно трепетно ❤️ А на фотографиях Вика и ее мама Елена🌹 Вам не кажется, что они похожи не только внешне?))) #shorthairdontcare #motherdaughter #хочукакудочки #nothingbutpixies
