ARE YOU A WOMAN IN HER 40's, 50's, or 60's+?

I am looking for 40 women over the age of 40 to participate in a one of a kind photo experience designed to empower, uplift and celebrate your unique beauty!

I want to change the conversation around aging and beauty and change the way the world sees and hears you.

Women over 40 are beautiful, brilliant, and vibrant, and the goal of this project is to remind the world, (and perhaps even yourself) of this important fact! The world needs to hear and see your story.

Join me on this exploration of the mature woman by participating in a project that will transform the way you see yourself. 

Listen to Beshka's experience!


“I like the woman you became better than the girl you were. I like the story you’ve written on your face” - Joanna Bourne

Why should i do this?

• To feel comfortable in your own skin.

• To embrace the freckles, lines and even scars that make you uniquely you.

• To learn to love the beautiful person looking back at you in the mirror.

• To help uplift other women who have felt unseen.

• Because self love is far from selfish.

• Because you deserve it.
