Morgen Schick, a Ford model turned beauty and anti-aging guru, sidled into the bright white photo booth on a recent morning and pondered the tools she could use to embellish her selfie: props in the booth include tiny flags festooned with hearts and a pair of weights — and there are four photographic filters, all designed to flatter like mad.
“That’s not bad,” said Ms. Schick, 52, examining herself on the screen before clicking. “There isn’t a filter to make me look 25, but that’s O.K. We’re embracing the now.”
She had taken her first Tracy Anderson post-workout all-aglow selfie the previous day and here she was back for an encore — even though it meant she would be late for her catapult cardio class.
“I don’t know if you’ve taken a class here, but you leave everything on the bouncy floor,” she said. “Tracy meets you where you are, and that’s awesome. I’m a 5-foot-10-inch size-10 woman who’s in menopause. That’s what I love about the photo booth — it meets you where you are, too.
