Our packages with 6 images start at €1500 and go up from there. We do take credit cards and offer payment plans as well.

WHAT DAYS DO YOU HAVE AVAILABLE FOR THIS SHOOT?

We have timeslots available for shoots Tuesday – Wednesday – Thursday at 10am.

Availability is first come first served. On your phone chat with Lucie she will share next available dates and make sure to find an opening that works for you. If you are SUPER EXCITED to particpate but just can’t possibly make those times work let’s chat about your availability. I want to be as inclusive as possible for this project but I am working around my hair & makeup artist’s schedule too. We will do our best to accomodate you.

TELL ME ABOUT THE PORTRAIT EXHIBITION + CELEBRATION?

One of the most exciting parts of this project is to celebrate all 40 of our participants and share your images and stories with the community. There will also be a final celebration featuring all 40 women’s portraits on display once this project is complete. Our venue will be announced as we get closer.

WHY ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS PROJECT?

I will be 58 ths year, and I can relate with all my 50+ sisters of the feelings we have about aging and how we are underrepresented in the media. There’s no expiration date on being a fabulous, happy, fulfilled, and vibrant woman. You inspire me. Your story inspires me. You show me and our society the truth– that a woman just gets better with time, like a fine wine! I am a huge believer in women’s empowerment. There aren’t enough platforms for women over 50 to share their story and their beauty.

I'M NOT PHOTOGENIC THOUGH! IS THAT OK?

Whoa, stop right there beauty! I simply don’t believe in “photogenic.” It’s my job as the photographer to make you look and feel amazing! And lucky for you I am a trained master at making women of all ages, shapes and sizes look amazing in photographs.
