50 over 50 - Before & Afters

Are you over 50 and fabulous?

I am looking for 50 women to join me in a one-of-kind experience celebrating your life and your story. 

Too many women over 50 feel invisible. Yet, we are too experienced to not be heard and too beautiful not to be celebrated.

I want to change that.

It’s time to start a conversation about the beauty of aging and to embrace the confidence of finally being comfortable in our own skin. Together we can change the way the world defines aging, and we can lift and empower those that are coming up behind us. Join me on this adventure to share the common bond of being 50 and over.

I WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHING 50 WOMEN OVER 50 IN 2021. YOU'RE INVITED TO A UNIQUE MAGAZINE-STYLE PHOTO SESSION, CULMINATING INTO A GALLERY-STYLE EXHIBITION AND CELEBRATION OF WOMEN AND THEIR STORIES.

WHY OVER 50, WHY ME, AND WHY NOW?

Although I have been a professional photographer and industry educator for over 25 years I only took my portrait photography business full-time after turning 48 and building my dedicated home studio. This year I'm turning 50. I was content on hiding from the world. I even told my husband not to post it on Facebook or have a party for me. I felt like someone in my profession needs to appear young and physically strong and that age was something that would work against me. Over the past year+ I kept getting clients with Moms bringing their children in for photos. They would sit by watching contently as their beautiful and talented children are photographed. I always asked Mom if she would like to be photographed as well. And time after time I would here "No - not me, just the kids". I did the same for years so I related well. Now I get women of all ages in my studio to experience a portrait session with me and I can see THEY WANT TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED and they should be. Women of my age and older are very under represented in the media so I wanted to create something about women in the second half of their lives. I know how empowering it can be to see yourself in photographs and I wanted to give this very special gift to all women to enjoy. I finally realized that my age can be my SUPERPOWER! No longer am I shy and awkward in my life and behind the camera. My years of experience has taught me to be comfortable with myself, my abilities/skills and it helps women in front of my camera get comfortable with me.

It will be fun, fulfilling, and transformational. The REVOLUTION is within you...and I want to bring it out! Join me on a fun and incredible adventure bringing out your superpower!

One day your children will look for photographs of you. What will they find?

Women with financial hardship sponsorship

My goal is to show a diversity of women, and I recognize that the cost may be prohibitive to some people. I will be gifting several shoots in the new year to women of financial hardship to participate in this important project.

GALLERY OF SAME DAY TRANSORMATIONS

We specialize in photographing the everyday woman. She arrives with her outfits at the studio with clean dry hair and a clean face. We take it from there. None of these woman are models or have modeling experience. All sessions are fully guided so every woman can look and feel like a Model-For-A-Day.
