40+ WISE WOMEN
A celebration of all women ages 40 and above
Tell us your story, share your insights, courage & beauty
I am photographing 40 amazing women in their 40s, 50s, 60s+,
this is a one of a kind empowering experience, celebrating
your life and your story.
Women over 40 are an extremely under-represented group and it's time to start a conversation about the beauty of aging.
We need to change the way the world and media define us, and to embrace the freedom and confidence about finally being
comfortable in your own skin.
Let's show the world what 40+ & Fabulous looks like!
WHY SHOULD I DO THIS?
To do something empowering for yourself.
To honour what makes you beautiful and unique.
To embrace every freckle, line and scar no matter your age, shape or size.
To share your story about what it means to be a mature woman.
To stand in your own power with body-positivity, strength and courage.
To help other women realize their potential by stepping out of the shadows.
To learn to love the reflection looking back at you in the mirror.
To acknowledge that self love isn’t selfish.
YOU WILL BE FEATURED IN OUR LIMITED EDITION
"40+ WISE WOMEN" MAGAZINE AND GALLERY EXHIBITION
TO BE HOSTED IN THE ATRIUM AT THE TANNERY, CHRISTCHURCH.
A CELEBRATION OF 40 WOMEN AND THEIR STORIES.
THE FINER DETAILS.
What does it cost?
I am offering this 40+ wise women promotional package for just $399.00 (a value of $650.00)
Why be a part of this campaign?
You are the perfect person we are looking for. Yes you, the one who thinks this is not for me, the one who thinks this is just for the thin, pretty lady. Not true If you are a WOMAN you qualify. I myself are not "thin or pretty" according to society's expectations. I want to smash that mainstream theory and change the way we see ourselves. We the 40+ ladies in society. We are powerful! We are the ones who drive the economy and yet we are forgotten in the world of advertising & media. If you are tired if being suppressed come and join my campaign and help make a change, I want us to be noticed for the intelligent, resourceful, loving, sensual, powerful, beautiful women we are!
What you get!
Each lady who participates receives.
A fitting appointment will be scheduled a few days before your photoshoot. Bring your desired outfits with you, we welcome you to try anything from in the studio wardrobe and mix and match anything you'd like. We also have a lot of fabric in the studio wardrobe and can fashion a "dress" on you. I am happy to guide you toward some great stores if you wish to purchase something special for the shoot.
The importance of the styling appointment is for us to be able to design your background sets, so we have a shooting plan in place on the day of the photoshoot.
Professional Hair & Makeup
On the morning of your photoshoot you will be introduced to our hair and make artist. We will consult with you on how you wish to wear your hair & makeup. Toward the end we will ask you if you are happy with your hair and make-up, please don't be afraid to say if you are not - we are more than happy to make changes. We want you to be happy with your look and ultimately your images. Remember this is about you!
Full Service Session

You’re in good hands! I’ll be directing you every step of the way so you won’t need to worry about a thing. Our job is to help you feel comfortable and enjoy the experience. I’ll even show you the back of my camera a few times so you know how beautifully your images are turning out. You are amazing and no detail is too small to make this a perfect day for you.
Nibbles and refreshments will be on offer during your photo session to keep you refreshed and hydrated.

You’ll be invited back for your REVEAL appointment within 2-3 weeks after your photo shoot. First, we’ll watch a personalized video with all of your photos and behind-the-scenes footage. During the REVEAL you’ll see all your beautiful portraits, you then choose your complimentary print and have the opportunity to purchase more if you wish. What you purchase is entirely up to you and I’ll show you all the beautiful products available at your consultation or fitting appointment.

40+ Wise Women Magazine

We’ll celebrate all of the women participating in this project with a champagne party and exhibit in the beautiful Atrium at The Tannery in Christchurch.
