Who creates a website without a homepage. This crazy lady right here TonShay Theresa. If you have been reading my blog, you may have noticed there was no home page. My blog story’s would appear on the home page. It was time to hire to some people to get it done. Because I’m all about saving money, I scheduled my photoshoot, The Real Divas Win Book Signing and The Vertiport VIP Helicopter Tour all in the same day. It knew that would be a crazy day and I was up for the challenge.

The first thing we had to do was come up with a theme and lock down a date. Everyone has to understand the theme to get the looks you are trying to accomplish. So, I needed a signature look, a business look and a fun and flirty look. Next, we confirmed the date and booked the vendors.

The first person was Liz Creative Designs. Liz is our family’s go to make up artist. She does all of our family events, proms, weddings. birthdays, etc. Her booking process is simple. I went to her website Https:// looked for my required service. The site gives you options for makeup services, hair services, and hair and makeup bundle service. You just simply click your required service, pick the date and time, pay the deposit and just like that you are booked. You will get a couple of follow-up emails with information about your services. Please read the emails so there is no confusion on the day of your appointment.

The next thing was finding a signature look. If you follow me on social media you probably noticed I have been rocking TonShay Theresa tees and tanks. Self-promotion is the best promotion. No one can explain your business better than you. So, I wanted to create a look around my tee and that’s where Styles by Stacey Lynn came in.

Stacey has styled me for my birthday, vacation, nights out on the town and now my photoshoot. She is my personal stylist when I have no idea of what to wear or if I want to change up my look. Stacey is the owner of Her Treasures Boutique which is where I find most of my one of a kind pieces. The booking process is simple. Go to, fill out the request consultation form and someone will contact you with 48 hours. I received my items from Stacey aweek before the photoshoot. She does offer day of photoshoot service.

Now it’s time to book a photographer. Shaun Kelley Media and I already were scheduled a photoshoot at Vertiport VIP Helicopter Tours. My schedule was consistently changing so it was hard to get the entire photoshoot scheduled with him. Chris (the photographer) has a pretty easy booking process. You can send him an email to with your booking details or you can call him at 312-678-3240. Once your appointment is finalized. Pay your deposit (1/2 of his fee) and you are all set.

Tiffany A. Green was the visionary and she had a vision of what the website and the pictures should look like. Tiffany and I have done several photoshoots together. All those great vacation bikini pictures you see on Instagram and Facebook were taken by her. Tiffany was my personal photographer until she moved to Atlanta😟. But whenever she’s in town she makes time for little ole me. Tiffany has several different businesses and her photography company is Aundriana Parker Imaging Design Studio.

There was a lot to get done in a small amount of time. So let’s get to this Photo Shoot Day. I woke up and 4:00 am, did my morning routine and made it to Liz by 5:00. Liz made me laugh, touched up my hair and did my makeup and we were done about 7:00. I drove to Tiffany packed up everything we needed and we headed to our first destination for the business photo shoot. Not to mention, the weather was absolutely perfect.

It’s now 8:30, as I am getting dressed in the car and realized I forgot spankx but I had no time to go back so that was that. It took us 30 minutes to figure out how the work the machine on the CTA Platform which put us at 9:00 am. Now it’s time to shoot my business look. We took a few shoots on the train platform, a couple picks on the street then we headed to destination 2 for the fun and flirty look.

Destination 2 was a graffiti wall. It’s about 9:30. I changed clothes in the car. We took a couple of photos by the graffiti wall. It was a fun look so I did a few poses and jumped up in the air. It was windy and my hair was flying all over the place. We got a few good shots and we are off again.

In the back seat again changing clothes for destination 3 to capture my signature look. We made it to Vertiport about 10:00 which was my scheduled time. Tiffany and Chris (the photographer) had a quick talk about the session and we started capturing my signature look. This session and the helicopter ride took about 1 1/2 hours and we were done. Rest oh no.

I rushed home to get prepared for the book signing which went from about 1:30 to 5. (You can still purchase your copy visit the merchandise section.) By the end of the day, I was so tired. I went with my 2 chocolate favorites to dinner, came home, and passed out. This day was crazy but it’s what I signed up for.

I am TonShay Theresa and that was my photoshoot day experience. Until next time. Thank you for reading.
