GLOW GETTERS™ APPLICATION PROCESS
Glow Getters™ is free to attend thanks to our amazing business and private sponsors. To become a Glow Getter, each girl must apply. We do this, not only because of limited space, but also to achieve a diverse group of girls. Our goal is that your girl has the opportunity to meet new friends. Once an application is approved by our board, we will personally reach out via phone call to a parent/guardian with a formal invitation and to set up your required in-person consultation with our Founder and Photographer, Chianne Coffman.
Be sure to read through all of the information on this page and then click the “Apply” button at the bottom of the page to submit your application to join the 2023 Glow Getters™ Tween team.
Meeting your girl prior to her photo session is a requirement that we ask both you and your girl to attend together. This is our opportunity to get to know one another and get a minor model release signed. This is also our chance to get to exchange stories and laughs, answer questions and address any concerns.
Chianne fully believes in not only creating a space for your girl to connect to others, but also a space where she feels empowered to fully be herself. It is amazing what Chianne can pull out during a photo session no matter what walk of life a Glow Getter has had… she truly cares about your girls’ unique gifts and personality.
Photography is a powerful tool that Chianne is passionate about creating. As a graphic designer and photographer, Chianne takes the photos of your daughter and turns them into treasured artwork pieces. Our most popular art pieces that parent’s invested in last year were her hand-drawn “I Can” illustrated portrait pieces. Chianne will show samples during your in-person consultation. Each piece is commissioned ahead of time by the parents due to the complexity of creation behind it. What can be more powerful than a commissioned art piece that reiterates back to your daughter every day that her dreams can happen for her?
An investment in artwork is just an added bonus, but not a requirement. No matter what, each family will be invited back to Chianne’s studio to view all of the photos from their girls’ session. This is a powerful experience to share with your girl as she will only get a complimentary photo session her first year!
PHOTO SESSION DAY
Photo session day is SO fun! This is the first time that your girl will get to meet her fellow 1st Year Glow Getters™. Since we had already met during the in-person consultation, parents have the option of staying with their girl or dropping her off. We provide snacks and beverages and age appropriate music to “get our dance on”. The girls love playing dress up with our creative closet we have on loan from local boutiques.
Chianne is sure to capture all the images that are needed for the event as well as any special requests discussed during the in-person consultation. Each girl gets her time in the spotlight and we do not rush through this part. We give her as much time as she needs to express herself!
“The photo session was such an amazing experience for Hailey. She was very unsure about it at first, but was able to slowly feel more confident and comfortable in expressing herself!”Angie, Hailey’s Mom

AFTER THE GLOW GETTERS™ EVENT
Chianne will invite each Glow Getter and her family back to her studio to present all of the incredible images captured from your girls’ photo session. Remember, this photo session is only offered to 1st Year Glow Getters™ at this time.
Glow Getters™ has the unique ability to highlight the beauty to be found within girls ages 9-14. These are sometimes the hardest years a young lady will grow through. With all of the changes happening physically and mentally as well as all of the social pressures beginning to rear their ugly heads, we want our Glow Getters™ to know they are uniquely qualified to rise up into their best life.
This age range is one of the least photographed time periods in the life of a young person… “Once Collins has her braces off we will get family photos” is an often used excuse Chianne hears outside her work with Glow Getters™. However, Chianne truly believes that if “Collins” can feel beautiful with her braces, then she has an extra tool in her tool box that empowers her. We all went through adolescents, it’s our job now as adults to lend a hand that pulls this next generation through it.
The purpose of this presentation is to highlight the captivating expressions captured of your girl. When she sees herself presented professionally, she sees a new reflection that might have otherwise been missed had she not been a Glow Getter. We get to gush on her and see her sit a little more upright with confidence.
Regardless of investment with Chy Creative, this is an opportunity you get to have with your girl because of Chy Creative’s contribution to Glow Getters™. However, should you want to make an investment at this time Chianne can walk you through her easy in-person ordering appointment that will have you putting artwork of your girl up in your home in no time!
Studies show that when a child sees themselves displayed on the walls of their home it gives them a sense of belonging, security and confidence! This is Maya, 2021 Glow Getters™ team.
