AGELESS: A 40 over 40 limited portrait series


A 40 over 40 limited portrait series

“The aim is not to count numbers but live ageLESSLY and ageFULLY being the best version of you as a woman of any age”  …..Emem


This portrait experience is a call for women who are turning/in their 40s, 50s, 60s and above to join me in the celebration of life.

I love how women have evolved, embracing their age and going from the era of “women don’t tell their age” to “hey!, I am 45 years of age”.

I used to think 40 was the age for old people, As I get closer to 40 in a few months, I am loving and embracing the woman that I am becoming, looking at life differently now. I am excited about the legacy that I am building. Age is not just about the digits for me anymore, it is more about the impact, the experiences, the amount of time that I have given to share my life with the people that I love.

I have created this portrait experience for women just like me, to give women in their 40s, 50s, 60s and above a space for them to own their light and tell their story to empower and lift the ones coming behind. In all we have lived and loved and it is time to share and show the wisdom that we have gained along the way and to preserve those memories.
