I’m looking for 40 amazing women over the age of 40 to photograph and celebrate in 2022.
WILL YOU BE ONE OF THEM?
What is the 40 Over 40 Campaign?
Women in their 40s, 50s, 60s and older make up one of the largest demographics today. This group deserves to be celebrated! We have years of wisdom and experience and we have stories to share.
I want to EMPOWER you to show that age is just a number. It doesn’t define you.
I want to photograph and interview 40 women this year of all ages, sizes and diversities and I want to share your unique stories. Let’s start a conversation about the beauty in aging and change the way the world sees us.
We all have our own story…we are moms, business women, caregivers, travellers, athletes…the list is endless. We have successes and failures, we have overcome challenges and we struggle with real day-to-day issues of life. We are survivors. We are awesome!
“Life really does begin at forty.
Up until then, you are just doing research”. – Carl G. Jung
YOU’RE INVITED TO A UNIQUE & LUXURIOUS PHOTOSHOOT EXPERIENCE
WHAT DOES THIS INCLUDE?
1. PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION – this is where we start to create the magic. We will design the perfect photo session for you that will make you feel like a celebrity. We will discuss all the details of your session. We will talk about how you want to be photographed, wardrobe styling, posing and any other details involved in your luxury session.
2. PROFESSIONAL HAIR & MAKEUP – Come to the studio and be ready to be pampered. The LPP team of professional hair and makeup artists will have you looking amazing! You will want to book a night out afterwards because you will look gorgeous!!
3. CELEBRITY STYLED PHOTOSHOOT – No experience required! This 2-3 hour session will be fun and relaxed…no stress here. You will be guided through all the posing and made to feel comfortable in front of the camera. This will be your time to shine!
4. INTERVIEW – this is an important part of the experience. After your session, you will be asked 2-4 questions about being a women over 40 in today’s society. You can be as honest as you want. Maybe you have an important message to those younger, to those struggling with similar issues, or just words of encouragement to your fellow sisters. What’s your message to others? This campaign will be promoted and shared, so please be comfortable with your story being shared.
5. REVEAL AND ORDERING SESSION – You will be so excited to see your photos! About one week after your session you will be invited to a safe and comfortable Zoom call to review your proofs. You won’t believe how gorgeous your photos will be! This will be the time to select your complimentary 11×14 print and have the option to purchase more.
6. TICKET TO GALLERY EXHIBITION – At the end of this campaign, we will be showcasing the 40 amazing women and their stories. It will be an evening to remember as we celebrate all the participants.
