Terribly Girly is about celebrating the best of life, love, and beauty! Ms. Janette, your brilliant eye and easy attitude combined with your team of HUGELY TALENTED gals are AMAZING capturing the empowered, sexy woman within. I had such a wonderful time at my first shoot celebrating my birthday and 40lbs of weight loss (pic here) and was thrilled to come back for another shoot and another 40lbs. Thank you for everything. I'm so happy to share. Much love to all!
Janette and her girls literally changed my life after my very first shoot at the Terribly Girly Studio. It was a birthday gift to myself and the best yet. They were so fun and happy and made me feel welcome and beautiful. They even graced me with my current moniker "Foxxy Banks" and have transformed me into the more confident me that I am today. You would be surprised how some makeup and hair can transform a gal! Not just on the outside but in all aspects. I can look back at my shots and remember that I'm freaking fabulous! Thank you so much! xoxo
So much can be said about the girls over at Terribly Girly studios.....I have always been kind of shy and around these girls I felt like such a bombshell!!! Between the way the studio is set up and the make up and hair station and even the wardrobes. You feel like a celebrity for a day from all the attention. Every experience I have had with the Terribly Girly girls has been beyond amazing. I am also proud to say that I have been able to share that same experience with some close friends who have had their shoots done. It is because of Janette and Jen that my alter-ego Lola was born. I love all the girls and how wonderful they made me feel!!!
I think every girl should do this once at least once a year!!!!
I had a fantastic experience at terribly girly studios and tell all my friends about it. There isn't a week that has gone by since my first shoot, that I am not asked about my photos. One of my friends booked a Gatsby session from hearing of my experience and seeing my pictures. She couldn't stop telling me how great her experience was and I just booked my third shoot. The girls at the studio are fabulous and make you feel like family!
Shooting with Terribly Girly Photography is a wonderful and crazy-fun experience! The TG crew is amazing! The past three shoots I’ve done were group shoots with 5 or 6 other girls. The TG crew made all of us feel like each one of us was the most beautiful girl in the room! For me, shooting with Terribly Girly is not merely a fun experience. Each time I finish a shoot with the TG crew I gain an abundance of self-confidence, which not only helps me get creative with future shoots, but the confidence I gain spills over into every aspect of my life and I feel as if I can accomplish anything! It’s always an honor and a pleasure to shoot with the incredibly talented and professional Terribly Girly crew and I look forward to many more TG shoots. Terribly Girly rocks!
I remember I was a bit nervous on the day of the shoot. I did not know what to expect and wondered if I would make a fool of myself. The staff was amazing! They made me feel welcomed and it was like I knew them forever. I remember Janette telling me give me a sexy smile or look at me with bedroom eyes. In my head I am thinking I bet she's laughing at me, lol. Needless to say, I was beyond happy with the pictures and most importantly, my husband loved them too! Thank you TG team
I had a lovely experience working with the girls at TG in June 2011! I had always wanted to do a pinup photoshoot so I could look back and someday show my grandchildren that I wasn't half bad looking. So, when I stumbled across Terribly Girly, I immediately fell in love with your work and how you were able to make each and every lady look absolutely amazing in their photographs. I wasn't the least bit surprised with the beautiful job you did with my photos! I always get compliments. I wouldn't hesitate to repeat my experience with Terribly Girly, and I hope I do again in the near future.
Janette, Virginia, Aurora and all the girls at Terribly Girly Photography know how to have fun and bring out your best. You never know what you are capable of until someone convinces you to try. They know what they are doing. Can't wait to go back with a group of friends.
The whole Terribly Girly team was amazing! They are talented, fun and confidence building ladies. The MUAH makes you feel like a star and Janette provides great direction and fantastic photos!
I am a Terribly Girly super fan I had such a great and memorable time at Terribly Girly that in one week i booked two sessions. Miss Valentine and the rest of the girly crew are beyond A-W-E-S-O-M-E! The day of my photo shoot I was concerned i was going to feel awkward or act shy, but they are so warm, sweet and inviting that I felt right at home. My shyness went out the window. It is such a fun and therapeutic experience. I totally recommend a session at Terribly Girly. I am already brainstorming ideas for my next photo shoot. I can't wait to go play at Terribly Girly again. Girls, what are you waiting for to book your fabulous session!?
My shoot was done 2 days before my 40th Birthday ! I held onto my gift certificate for a year , like many woman wanting to lose those extra pounds to be perfect ...... Well from the first contact to schedule my appointment , to wardrobe , to hair and make up and Jannette , I left there feeling like the most beautiful girl in the world !! They have all captured this amazing milestone in my life !!! Every woman should have this experience !!
I absolutely loved working with the terribly lovely women at Terribly Girly Photography! Everyone was very friendly and made me feel so comfortable and confident - it felt so empowering to be there and be a girl! Janet was so patient in guiding me through poses while we shot, and everyone created just such a laid-back, relaxed atmosphere with great music and conversation! They're so open to working with what you like and are comfortable with. So many of my friends have asked me about shooting, and I tell them they absolutely have to do it! Love you ladies, thank you for everything!!
I've booked a photo session not only once, but twice! First one was Sailor Pin Up then Flappers Era. So much fun to change up the styles. I absolutely adore the studio and everyone in it, the hair and makeup artists along with a wonderful wardrobe consultant! When it comes to the photographer, Janette has such a unique and artistic eye you just can't find anywhere else. I drove 3 hours to this studio, and it was well worth it.
A few years back, I had one of my best days... What girl doesn't LOVE to get their hair and makeup done, and get to wear beautiful, feminine and sexy little numbers to boost up the confidence level? Playing in front of the camera was easier than I thought it would be. Both the classic pinup and boudoir shots came out so much better than I ever expected! It was a day I will definitely never forget, and will always long to do again. Thanks a million to Janette and her lovely crew for making a girl feel comfortable, but most of all, special. Kisses...
My Terribly Girly photo shoot was one of the most wonderful experiences. The entire staff makes you feel incredibly comfortable and beautiful. I was able to incorporate a clown puppet that belonged to my grandfather whom I was very close with. I'll always have these beautiful pictures and great memories. I had so much fun and had a great self esteem boost! Thank you Janette and everyone at TG!
When I did my Terribly Girly photoshoot back in 2009, I have to admit I was a bit nervous because I am camera shy. The Terribly Girly crew made me feel so comfortable in my skin, I felt like a natural born pinup girl!! I had the best time from hair/makeup w/ Jennifer DiTerlizzi Basing, to the stylists making me look fab and the amazing photography of Janette Valentine capturing the moment. Thank you I can't wait to do it all over again.
I have never felt so comfortable around such an amazing group of women. You helped bring out this self confidence in myself that I'd long had forgotten about. A sense of enpowerment where in embraced every curve on my body unapologetically. You guys made sure that I felt beautiful in every respect, and for that, I'm grateful. I look forward to being a repeat customer. Exes and ohs, Jess
My experience with TG was AMAZING!!! Janette took me from this shy girl who was scared to vamp it up to a sexy sultry pin up WOMAN!!! Janette you and your staff have a talent that is truly unexplainable. I was referred to you and have referred many more after me and we all say the same thing at the end WOW!!!!!! You made me feel the sexiest I have ever felt, comfortable around a camera and the turn around to receive my package was perfect!!! Thank you again and Congrats on your anniversary of your move to Wynwood. I wish you many more years of success every around the world! XOXO.....See you very soon.
I've never had professional photos done, but the wonderful ladies of Terribly Girly Photography really set the bar! Not only did I have the most fun, amazing and exciting time being pampered by them all, but they were all so patient and happy with my 2 year old (crazy) son and husband for our family shots. I LOVE seeing our pics hung in my home daily and can't stop bragging about how awesome this kick ass girl team is!
I did my Terribly Girly shoot a while ago as a gift for my husband, but the girls trip down to Miami turned into exactly what I needed for me! The staff not only did some serious work to make me look absolutely stunning, they also went beyond what I expected to make sure that we had a blast and felt like the most beautiful women in the world! Janette's portraits are amazing, but what she did for my confidence and insides are priceless.
I had an amazing experience the two times I shot with terribly girly studios. For my second session, my husband planned a surprise birthday party with my friends. It was incredible spending the day, getting pampered and taking pictures with my friends. I gave each of them a scrapbook with pictures of that day as a thank you. It is a memory we can all cherish together. This quote that was on the last page sums everything up.
"Maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and guys are just people to have fun with” –Sex and the City
...ok ok....So I have known J for a few years and worked with her and her staff a few times and I have to say I LAUGHED MY ASSSSS OFF!!! THEEEE BEST TIME doing a photoshoot. I looked soo freakin rad and the pics turned out just FABULOUS! Talk about lifting your self esteem a notch or 2!!!! I LOVE YOU MY TERRIBLY GIRLY CREW!!! ROCK ON!
I booked this shoot originally as a Christmas gift for my then boyfriend. We broke up shortly before it was scheduled and not having a "special someone" to share the pictures with I postponed the shoot. The day of my rescheduled shoot I was sick with flu like symptoms and still broken hearted, but did not want to cancel on the girls again. From the moment I walked in the studio I felt special, beautiful , and pampered. All the things a girl with a runny nose and a broken heart needed. Not only are you ladies very talented in your individual fields, but you are also amazing at being just what a girl needs at the right moment. That day will forever be cherished to me. The laughs, the girl time with perfect strangers who felt like my long time girlfriends for the day. Then there's these gorgeous pictures I need no one else but myself to share with. They bring only smiles to my face. The "reason" for the shoot got lost in your making this day something so much better. I would love to have another Terribly Girly day with all of you - Brandy
I had so much fun doing this. I went with my sister and we both loved it! Everyone working with us was really nice and helpful. They made you feel comfortable and at home instantly. I really liked the personal experience I received, because It was originally going to be a classic pin up, but we ended up doing something more outside the box and I really appreciated the extra thought. I'd love to do another shoot and will be looking back happily on these photos for the rest of my life. Thanks!!
My experience with Janette and the TG team was nothing short of amazing!! As soon as you walk into this quirky studio you know something awesome is about to happen....From watching Aurora put together a fascinator on the spot to match my outfit, seeing yourself transformed by the hair and makeup team....and thats only the beginning. These girls make you feel like you're the most gorgeous, special person to step foot in that studio. I'm not a model, I am terrified of cameras, and yet Janette not only made the experience bearable. ..its was FUN! lots of fun. I love my pictures, and I can't wait to do it again!!!
I originally wanted to have a TG shoot for the simple fact that I am not getting any younger and wanted to have amazing photos for my kids to have of me when I am no longer in "my prime"! After the first shoot, I was hooked and am now doing TG shoots for myself. These talented ladies continue to make me feel like a million bucks!
I chose to do this TG shoot after I was introduced to the idea by a friend. I was excited but extremely nervous at the same time, as I did not know what to expect nor like being in front of a camera. It turned out to be an amazing experience. The entire staff made the atmosphere fun, exciting, and comfortable. Thank you for an amazing job ladies. I look forward to working with you again soon!
My experience with Terribly Girly has been out of this world!! I first had the pleasure of shooting with the all girl beautiful crew when we were shooting for the cover of my CD . I was immediately addicted to Terribly Girly.Terribly girly is an all girl crew that are not only very talented make up, hair, wardrobe and photography they are truly trained psychologist to make anyone with a depression problem to come out out of there all smiles! The beautiful energy, how comfortable and beautiful they make you feel! Its priceless! I mean I came out of there feeling like a latin Marilyn Monroe! I just did my second shoot with them truly amazing.! And
brought my family and friends to shoot there and going to keep bringing them because everyone deserves that experience.Now I'm excited to say that i will shooting my music video with the Terribly Girly Crew..I'm telling you is a BAD addiction that is soooo good! Thank you ladies for being you.. beautiful inside and out and Janette thank you for being a great listener!
The awesomeness starts when you make the appointment with Jen, she is the nicest, coolest, helpful booking girly ever! I've done two shoots with Terribly Girly and it only gets better. Marilyn and Virginia (hair and makeup) made me look like one sexy hot momma. Aurora (stylist) is a must for every shoot, she has such an amazing gift, and knew what clothes/accessories worked with my body and photo shoot. What can I say about Jan!! Love-love-love her!! She is not just a photographer; she makes you love the camera, even if you have ZERO experience like I did. She coaches you on how to pose and encourages you in such a way that you feel like a pro. Terribly Girly is like an orgasm, you have to experience it to know how amazing and fabulous it is.
I had wanted to do a TG shoot for years and was finally able to do one as a gift from my Fiancé not only for myself but for my sister as well. From the second we walked in, everyone was so nice and fun and we really felt like celebrities. My shoot was an adventure, to say the least, but it ended up with some amazing photos (and some vinyl repair). I've never felt so beautiful, thanks to the TG crew. They create a perfect end result, time and time again. Congrats on 8 years and here is to many more!!
What you girls do is a true gift and I don't know if you all really understand how much you give to us clients. From the moment you start the process to the end result is pure joy. I was so nervous the first time I shot with you guys, but the make-up and hair girls were all wonderful, and I have had the pleasure of working with lots of them, and Aurora is a whiz at costuming. She can put together an outfit with the snap of her fingers. When it's time to shoot, Janette, with her big wonderful smile puts you so at ease. I am so glad I've had the opportunity and I hope lots and lots of other ladies get the same to shoot with you and feel beautiful and confident. xo
One of my friends introduced me to The Terribly Girly Studio. At first I was hesitant, as I'm some what reserved; as those that really know me, already know. However, when I walked into the studio and began getting prepped for my photo shoot I met an incredible group of women, like none I've ever met before. I'm not just saying this to promote the business but because they truly touched my heart. Besides making me feel comfortable and welcomed in their studio, my conversation with Riviera De Cordova Virginia Mendez completely changed my life! I was going thru some difficult times and these two ladies treated like one if their own. They inspired me to follow my dreams, Never give up and always push forward. I remember her telling me to always do what I love and always love myself. These ladies as well as Jen, Janette, and Aurora Natrix are an exceptional group of women that will always be remembered. My photo shoot was more than just a photo shoot, it was a memorable life changing experience that I'll never forget! To all my friends this is a must do, at least a one in a life time experience. We all deserve to feel and look beautiful and capture that moment forever.
My experience at Terribly Girly wasn't only fun but unique, trust me you don't get this type of treatment just at any studio. This lovely ladies will make you feel and look amazing giving you the confidence to steal the show!!! I had a fun maternity shoot because I wanted something original and the outcome was more than I could have dreamed of. I'm absolutely in love with the finals and so is everyone else I've showed them to. Jan is not only very professional but she gives that personal touch to each one of the pictures! I cannot wait to have another shoot with this talented team! Xoxox
I have never felt more comfortable with a photographer ever. Janette and her crew do so much to help you be comfortable, feel beautiful and just honestly to have a great time! This was my 3rd time shooting with them and this picture if my favorite out of them all. They just get better and better! They have helped to build my confidence and to see myself in a way I never would have by myself. My girlfriends and I usually do party groups and we SO look forward to our day in the Studio! I also would like to add do not ever think you are to old to play!! I am more confident in this 40 year old body than I ever was in my 20 year old one. Every Woman should treat themselves to this at least once...or twice....
