Photography for the 50+’s
“It’s not like 50 is the new 30. It’s like 50 is the new chapter” – Sharon Stone
Every photo tells a story.
When you Google “Women over 50”, the first article you see is: “The most beautiful women over 50”. However it is an interesting article, that is not what I asked for. I want to know about Women Over 50 … girls like me. That’s it!
Once again society and social media wants to dictate to us what and who is beautiful. Firstly, according to who?
Furthermore, according to Pamela Madsen: “There is a willingness in a woman over 50 to finally let go of the myths that may have haunted her for her entire life. She may be finally ready to let go of long held body image issues, trauma and wounds from past heart aches or failed relationships, and even abuse. She may find she finally has the time and the means to discover herself as a sexual (and human) being, and this exploration has now become a priority in her life. She simply cannot tolerate missing out on what is possible for her, and often sets out on an incredible journey of sensual self discovery”
We are Women – Phenomenally so! We are intelligent, sexy, confident and loved. Every time you look in the mirror, you see a perfect creation of God, His crown jewel.
Coming back to Olma’s shoot .. I invited her to join me for a photography session in my studio. She walked in with flair and confidence. PIZZAZZ in CAPITALS I tell you!! We got creative and had FUN (yeah, in BIG LETTERS FUN). As a result, I was left with images I couldn’t choose from to edit. She was just … herself, not worrying about spots, wrinkles or a little roll that may show. She is Olma, a lovely, over 50, very succesful career woman, loved by many and adored by her friends (especially one guy).
Olma, you are so gorgeous. Thank you for spending time with me and allowing me share your amazing photos. Now looking forward to our next session.
Love you lots
