How it works

We start the process with a phone consult to plan the exact photo shoot to get your timeline planned and to get to the heart of exactly how you want to be photographed.

Next step is a design and style consultation to plan wardrobe.  I will coach you on what to bring to the session.  We can use clothes you already own, I can suggest outfits to purchase, rent or you have access to my studio closet!

You will be treated to professionally applied makeup and hairstyling.  Natural or Glamorous, or anywhere in between, its totally up to you.

Now is the time for you to enjoy your covergirl style magazine shoot.  Feel like a movie star. Don't worry about being photogenic, I got you with precise posing and direction so you feel confident. And you will look and feel so fabulous, I highly recommend making plans to go out on the town tonight when we finish!

Approximately two weeks after your day of pampering, we will meet again in my studio to reveal, choose and order your gorgeous portraits.  You will choose the complimentary portrait and if you love more than that, you can purchase more.  Every woman deserves to have beautiful portraits of themselves to treasure for years and pass down.

Once all 40 women have been photographed, you and a guest are invited to the exhibition (time and date TBD) where we will celebrate all the special women who have shared their stories.  Welcome to the sisterhood, friend!

Who is this for?

Any woman 40+, 50+, 60+, 70+, 80+, 90+, 100+ from anywhere!!

I want EVERY segment represented so we can create a gorgeous tapestry of images of different sizes, shapes, tastes and backgrounds.

Think about how YOU want to be captured, how your legacy can be shown in your very portrait that shows the real YOU.

This pampering experience is about so much more than "playing dress up" for the day.  My hope is that you will connect to a new vision of yourself and your beauty to carry with you for the rest of your life- forever changing that inner critic in your head that we all have.

I hope you will join me,
