50 OVER 50 PROJECT

A BEAUTIFUL REVOLUTION

Are you a woman over 50? Join to the club!

There are so many reasons to rejoice at being over 50. From a purely personal viewpoint, age really is just a number and I have so much energy for life and enjoy living it to its fullest. There are so many women like me who are following their dreams. Some women have been through tough times and hardship but have come through stronger and more determined. Some may still be struggling. We all have a story. However, it's also a fact that some women can feel like they have been dismissed by society when they reach a certain age.

My mission is to set the record straight and it's going to be addressed right here and now in an empowering series of portraits.

Whatever your story, I want to hear from you.

I provide modern and contemporary portrait photography and starting from March 2020 I will be photographing 50 women over the age of 50 to celebrate their unique beauty and wisdom. Once my project is complete, my aim is to present an exhibition and a book to showcase to the world these incredible women in all their magnificence. 

I am now taking applications from women over the age of 50 who would like to participate.

he project will be promoted in many ways so you’ll need to be happy with…

  • Rejoice at being you.

  • Share your story in the portrait gallery.

  • Stand proud and appreciate your perfect imperfections.

  • Give a voice to your incredible spirit.

  • Exist forever in beautiful, fashion-inspired, timeless portraits.

I want to create a range of stunning images of women from diverse backgrounds, and of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities, all aged 50 or over. You don't have to be a model in fact, quite the opposite. My hope is for you to see yourself as you have never seen yourself before.

Only 50 women can participate.

Are you 1 of my 50?

If photographers are responsible for creating or reflecting an image of women in society, then I must say, there is only one way for the future, and this is to define women as strong and independent.

This should be the responsibility of photographers today: to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.

Here are some fantastic images from my photoshoot with Alison. What an uplifting experience! It made me feel so good and was a real boost. Alison encouraged me to try different looks. I trusted her judgement and am so pleased that I did! She brought out a whole new ‘me’. Big thanks also to Tracey Andersen, makeup professional from ‘A Bit Gorgeous’. Although Covid circumstances meant I did my own makeup, Tracey’s creative advice really helped. - Louise

I had my photoshoot this week! It was absolutely amazing. Ladies you will not be disappointed. Alison was amazing all the way through, making everything so easy and comfortable. If anybody is still feeling a little nervous don’t be, just get excited!

Michelle

This image of me taken by Alison is now proudly hanging in my home. It shows me in my true light: My silver hair, the lines around my eyes but most importantly it shows the real me. I have always detested having my photograph taken, shaped by my history, I never saw myself as beautiful. This image has changed the way I see myself and it has changed how I show up in life. When I look at the photo I see a woman who has lived a good life, who needed a mirror held up to herself to see what others see. Never underestimate the power of an image. I would recommend giving yourself the gift of allowing Alison to show you how amazing the experience of having a photo session can be.

Teresa
