The Over Fifty Revolution
This year, I plan to create gorgeous portraits of fifty women around the age of 50! Let’s show the world that women are beautiful at every age. I’ll also be collecting your stories about what it’s like for you at this age, and how you are embracing or starting something new in this middle part of life. My goal is to capture you in all your strength, wisdom and beauty. Someday, your family and friends will look for a photo of you. What will they find? Let’s make sure it’s the one of you now, feeling empowered and proud of what you’ve accomplished this far and ready for the next chapter.
Beautiful & Confident at 50+
Are you “around 50”? Yeah, me too. This middle part of life can be complicated! Because Mother Nature is not giving us a choice about going through it, I think the best thing we can do is embrace it and share it with friends. I invite you to join my private Facebook group Beautiful & Confident at 50+ to share your experiences with and learn from other women who are around the same age.
In the middle of life we can count on one thing for sure: change!
So. Much. Change.
Maybe your kids are leaving the nest. Maybe you are downsizing. You might be starting a new career, leaving an old one, volunteering, traveling…it’s been said a lot, because it’s true: it is never too late to start over and it’s definitely never too late to follow your dreams.
But some of that change has its own kind of beauty and wisdom. I feel more confident in who I am, more sure of what I want and of what I don’t. I’m more willing to take risks, but also more willing to take naps. What does being “around 50” mean to you? Are you breaking stereotypes of what age means? Leading the way in a new direction? Whoever you are at your age, you are beautiful! I see this beauty in each of you and I want to celebrate it. I’d like to include and photograph women of all shapes and sizes, styles and backgrounds, for the 50 Over 50 project.
Women at 50+ are invisible in the media
It seems like after a certain age, women are not reflected in the media and it can seem that we are invisible to society. But we are not invisible, and we are not fading away. For many of us, the fifties and beyond are a time of growth, and new ventures. The 50 Over 50 project aims to highlight the ways that mature women are achieving, thriving and adding to the world.
“50 Over 50”
So today, on International Women’s Day, I start a new project and
I invite you to be a part of it.
Creating gorgeous portraits for fifty women over the age of 50, collecting your stories showing all the strength and beauty of this age, then presenting it to our world in a gallery exhibition and celebration.
Will you be part of the Over Fifty Revolution?
But, but, but….ignore that voice in your head! Whatever you’re thinking of, it’s not a good enough reason to keep you from such a fulfilling experience.
You are beautiful. Your favorite people know that about you. They see right through the outer layer to your inner beauty. For the ones who love you most, your face is the Face of Love. Let’s give them a beautiful image of you at your best, feeling great and looking amazing.
I can’t wait to see you recognize your unique beauty when I show you your images. I want you to feel strong and empowered when you take them home. And I want you to be a guest of honor, sharing just how gorgeous “around 50” can be, during a gallery exhibition of all fifty gorgeous, wise women.
