“Too many women over 50 feel invisible. I want to change that. Do you know that the 50+ age group accounts for over 33% of the population in our state? This group is too big to be ignored and too gorgeous not to be celebrated. It’s time to start a conversation about the beauty of aging and to embrace the confidence about finally being comfortable in our own skin. We intend to disrupt & transform the way you are viewed (or forgotten) by the media and society by putting out beautiful and authentic portraits combined with real stories. This is your chance to be seen and heard! Join me on this adventure to create beautiful legacy portraits for yourself and your family!”
