Find your beauty
50 WOMEN OVER 50
50 WOMEN OVER 50
I invite you to the most beautiful year of your life.
50 Women, 50 portraits. 50 friends.
Find and celebrate your beauty.
We get it though, the struggles are real…
We are inviting 30 women to celebrate their beauty.
Women who are mothers. Step-mothers. Grand-mothers. Plant-mothers. Fur-mothers. Mothers-to-be. Single Mothers. Mothers of their companies. Mothers to their friends. Women hoping-to-be-mothers.
Beauty is not found in a number on a tag. Beauty is not found under the bright lights in a plastic surgeon’s chair.
Beauty is in nurturing. Healing. Protecting. Fighting for love.
Your beauty deserves to be seen. Celebrated. Known.
Would you trade your earned stories, your earned wisdom for the naivity of your past youth? Never. Beauty is not an age, or flawless skin. Let yourself glow, remind yourself what you’re made of – you are a woman. You are beautiful.
IT’S HARD TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL
Between wrangling little ones, your job, and your relationship, sometimes it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, and no one sees or cares.
The struggle of infertility, or not finding the mate you thought you would by now – it feels hollow, drifting, like somehow you’re not important. (Pro tip: that’s a lie!)
Flipping through Vanity Fair and thinking, “Well, duh, I could look like that too if I had the styling team, photographer, and editor that she has.” (Actually, TRUE.)
THERE’S A LOT ON YOUR PLATE, AND IN YOUR HEART.
Was that wrinkle there yesterday? The topography of your face is different than it was 10, 20 years ago. But you’ve learned, this is true beauty, and those who love you celebrate every line, every part of what makes you, you.
Being bombarded every day with lying messages that you are still too young, or too old; too skinny, or not skinny enough; too few opinions, or too many; too sexy, or not sexy enough; too many children, or not enough… Woman, hear this: you are ENOUGH.
A NOTE FROM MANDY
I’ve felt the darkness of self hatred as a teenager. I’ve felt the post partum depression, the body anxiety as a mother. The curiosity and horror at blossoming wrinkles. The shame & self doubt of not being enough, ever, to anyone
And you know what I’ve learned? Love is greater than fear. Always has been, always will be. Learning to love these moments, every moment we’re given, the person you’ve been, the person you’re becoming.
Love is beauty.
To love… is to be beautiful.
Friend, feel this deeply: you are beautiful.
You deserve an experience that proves beauty to yourself.

Amanda is an incredibly skilled photographer on the Isle of Wight! She really is a gem. She understood right away what I was after and put a lot of efforts to ensure my needs were met. She is the first photographer I met with such expertise for portraits. Her level of awareness of details is incredible.
