I’m on a mission to photograph 40 women in their 40, 50s, and beyond!

I’d love for you to be a part of this amazing portrait experience!

This year I have a mission to celebrate the Strength, Resilience, Wisdom, and Beauty of 40 women over the age of 40.

I realize that as we get older, society seems less and less likely to celebrate the beauty and courage that comes to us as we age. I want to change that. We are powerful, we are beautiful, we have endured so much. We should celebrate all the wonderful, quirky, amazing things that make us, US.

Over the course of this year I am looking for everyday, amazing women who are in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. From all walks of life, from all ages, encompassing all body types. I want to celebrate the collective diversity of us women over 40.

When was the last time you had stunning portraits of yourself?

Not you and the kids, not your wedding photos, not with other family members?

A portrait of you for the sole purpose of celebrating YOU? (it’s probably been a while and perhaps never)

This portrait experience will be all about YOU and YOUR story.

“The beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows”

Who Is the 40 Over 40 Experience For?

If you’re a woman over 40, this experience is or you! Women like you who are working hard every day to kick-ass in your career, to support your family, to literlly do ALLLLLLL THE THINGS.

This portrait session is made to celebrate you and for you to take the time to do something amazing for yourself.

I want to celebrate your style, your uniquiness, and to show the world that we only get better as we get older!

Even though social media, movies, and more tell us the specific way we should dress, act, look, or even how to fix whatever they feel is wrong with us. We are perfect just as we are (ok, there was a bit of me channeling Bridget Jones Diary right there. Lol)

OOoo Yeah, There’s Even MORE In Store!

As part of the 40 Over 40 Experience, each participant will be interviewed by me before and after the photosoot to share your story about being a woman over 40.

Your stories and images (only those that you allow) will be shared on social media as we celebrate your experience and encourage other women to do the same.

And did I mention the party? All participants will be invited to a gallery-style exhibition where your portrait and story will be shared. I highly encourage friends and family to attend for this amazing party!

About Your Photographer

My name is Laquel and I firmly believe that women desperatly need to celebrate themselves more! Rarely do we take pictures of ourselves just to enjoy being alive and living this life. We’re told we need to be a little thinner, change our hair, dye our hair, fix those wrinkles so we don’t look as old as we are. Woman should be able to be and exist however we desire too. In whatever way is important to us. And capturing these moments in our lives as we move through time are imporant. Not just for family and others, but for US.

Come on this journey with me and celebrate yourself by capturing portrait that you will love forever.
