My 40 Over 40 portrait experience, culminating in photo exhibition and magazine, is a celebration of women in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. It’s about celebrating their beauty, wisdom and awesomeness and showing the world that we are far from being invisible once we turn 40. This is when for a lot of women (including myself!), start coming into themselves, undertake new challenges and finally try to do something just for them.

Andrea was the first woman I photographed in the 40 over 40 campaign. She just turned 60 and aims to have new experience each month. A portrait session was on her bucket list and here is the final result.


I am me – a kaleidoscope of passions and hates, hopes and fears , patience and intolerance
I am me – intelligent and intuitive but with a hatred of stupidity, boredom and ordinary
I am me – passionate and indifferent depending on the subject
I am me – an introvert who is so interested in people and their stories
I am me – seeking adventure but craving solitude and peace
I am me – learning to love myself – old age and all !
