Come and be part of my exciting ‘50 OVER 50’ Photographic Project – a celebration of the diversity, strength, beauty, essence and wisdom of women in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and beyond.

For one full year I’ll be creating stunning studio portraits of 50 women over the age of 50 culminating in an exhibition and celebration.

Why over 50, why me and why now?

I’ve been a photographer for most of my life, but with the passing of my grandmother and mother in the past 3 years, I have become acutely aware that my children will come looking for pictures of me.  And I want them to be good pictures. Lol. As I turn 50  this year,  I want to create something very special as a gift for all women to enjoy.


I would love you to join me on this adventure to create 50 beautiful portraits of 50 women who share the common bond of being over 50.


Through the 50 OVER 50 project, we can…

  • Show the world that beauty doesn’t diminish with age.
  • Shine the light on our character, wisdom and spirit.
  • Share stories about what it means to be an older woman in today’s world.
  • Stand tall and appreciate every scar, every line and every grey hair (or purple one!)

And let’s remember we are worthy, we are enough and we deserve this!

Who can take part in the project?

I would love to photograph a wide variety of women for the project. Let’s create a tapestry of stunning images of women of different shapes and sizes; women with different tastes, from different backgrounds and with different views and ways of life. The more diversity, color and vibrancy, the better!

What you receive:

As one of my ‘50 OVER 50’ ladies, you will receive a wonderful package which includes:

  • Pre-consultation with me to discuss how you want to be photographed including a style consultation.
  • Hair and makeup on the day of the photo shoot (you will feel amazing!)
  • Fully guided professional photo shoot that you will truly enjoy.
  • A reviewing session where you can see all your beautiful photographs.
  • One mounted print  – 7×10 inch (17.78 x 25.4cm) of your favourite photograph to keep. You are welcome to purchase additional prints.
  • Invitation to the ’50 OVER 50′ exhibition where you will see your portrait hung alongside all the other participants… and have the opportunity to meet each other as well!
  • Other conditions may apply.

I am offering the 50 OVER 50 special promotion package for just $220. The total value is over $495.

The project will be promoted in many ways so you’ll need to be comfortable with…

  • Being interviewed by me before and after the photo shoot about being a woman over 50. This may include video interviews.
  • That interview being shared on my website and social media.
  • Before and After makeover photos to be shown.
  • Your photo being displayed at the exhibition.


I’ll keep in touch with all participants throughout the project with updates, insights and information.

About me:

Every decade of my life has brought something new. I grew up here in Waterloo. In my 20’s, I joined the Army Reserve, went to college, got married and started having babies.

My 30’s were spent working from home while raising my 5 children, learning photography and web site design.

In my 40’s,  I was deployed to Fort Bliss and worked with soldiers from around the world. I knew that I wanted to stay in El Paso but I wasn’t bi-lingual so I began photographing soldiers and their families.

Since my mother passed away, I have been creating beautiful portraits for women and their families ever since.

I have enjoyed all the stages of my life. Now, in my 50’s I feel fortunate to have finally found my passion, what I really want to do for the rest of my life. I believe age does not prevent us from starting new things. In fact, you may be clear about what you want to do because you may have done a lot of things you didn’t want to do! I love being a part of someone’s life, even just for a moment – to capture a time when they are truly shining. I look forward to capturing your most beautiful essence right now, in this special over 50’s stage of your life.
