There are more women over the age of 50 in the world right now than ever in history, and they are reclaiming their spotlight and the right to be seen. For so many years, society has pushed them aside saying they were no longer relevant. Women over 50 are healthier, more active, financially stable and more confident than ever. They have raised families, supported spouses and lost themselves in their careers. They now find themselves at a place in life where they are asking themselves, “Well... what do I want now?” They are ready to tap into self love and fullfill their dreams, or to figure out what they truly are. I want to invite woman 50 and up to join me in this revolution of taking their place in society and showing the world how fabulous they really are.
This project is very close to my heart. I am a woman in my 50’s and it has taken me 50 years to really be comfortable in my skin. I wasted so much time judging myself by my “flaws” and not seeing beauty in the mirror. I spent many years being a daughter, a student, a wife, a mother, a business owner... I had put ME on the back burner. When I turned 50 I found myself looking inward and getting to know my authentic self which has been powerful. I gifted myself a professional photo shoot to celebrate myself at 55 and it was the best gift I could have had. I was fearful of hating the images and only seeing my “flaws” but the opposite was true. I was able to look past that and actually see ME. I didn’t see all the things I have hated on for so many years.... I just saw a beautiful woman who is a mom to two beautiful humans, a woman who found her soulmate in her late 40s and a woman who cherishes her friends who love her the way she is. I found a self love that I had lost and that is very empowering. This is what I want for all women.
I want to shine the spotlight on them and tell their stories.
