BE SEEN

YOU'RE WORTH IT

A photoshoot experience celebrating women forty and over

The Be Seen experience includes a portrait session that will make you feel like a model for the day, plus I'll tell your story on social media and at a gallery exhibit to follow. Take part in a revolution happening right now. Ordinary women in their 40's, 50's, 60's, and beyond are discovering their extraordinary. What’s your extraordinary? Empower other women and yourself by telling your story.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

This special experience in Orange County, CA, valued at $800, is just $299.

WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?

Your portrait session comes with

  • one 8x10 print

  • a pre-shoot consultation to discuss your wardrobe and how you would like to be photographed

  • professional hair and makeup on the day of your session

More About the Experience

WHY BE SEEN?

The older we get the less we tend to see ourselves represented in media, yet this is the time women begin to know themselves in the most meaningful ways. There's an irony in that, don't you think? Let's change the way women in their 40's and above are viewed by society and the media by celebrating our beautiful, authentic images, and stories. This is your chance to be seen and heard! Celebrate the fact that age doesn't diminish beauty, but enhances it. 
Caron's Story

"June 25th, the day before my 60th birthday, “Caron’s Closet” was introduced to the worldwide web, live streaming on Facebook. I did not realize that pressing the little red button would lead to such an amazing new found passion. My life is not perfect and I continue to have challenges, but the strength and confidence that I have to overcome anything make me feel amazing and as a result, my LIGHT is shining bright!! That is true beauty to me."

Rachel's Story

"Having just experienced my sister's passing and funeral, I noticed how hard it was for us to find a professional portrait of her and realized how important it is to take the time to have portraits done. I also feel like as a mom, I’m always behind the camera so I’m often not in many of our every day photos."  

Lisle's Story

Lisle is a life coach in Manifee, CA. She has lost a lot in her life. In the space of just months her son, mother, aunt, and godparents all passed away. Lisle wanted to be photographed and tell her story because she believes that even though things are difficult it's possible to live and enjoy life. 

Melinda's Story

Melinda's eldest son died of an opioid overdose. Through her journey of grief and healing, she's learned that she she can honor his memory without being ashamed. She has been blessed to have the opportunity to raise his son, and her younger son and his wife have given her two beautiful granddaughters as well. Melinda has always been a storyteller and is currently writing a screenplay. 

Judy's Story

Judy said that while living in China under her grandparents' care she was like a flower living in a greenhouse. But coming to America and living on her own has taught her to be a strong, independent woman. She now works as a portfolio manager at a commercial bank, and wanted to show her confidence, approachability, compassion, and kindness in her portraits. 

The Experience

Consultation, Wardrobe, and Styling

Your experience starts with a personal consultation with me to discuss why and how you'd like to be photographed. We'll discuss your story and talk about wardrobe, hair, and makeup.

Professional Hair and Makeup

At the shoot you'll get camera-ready hair and makeup professionally done to enhance your beauty. This can be as glamorous or as natural as you'd like. 

Guided Posing

Not sure how to pose? Not photogenic? It's something I hear often, and can relate to! Luckily you don't have to worry. You'll feel like a model as I guide you through every pose to help you look your best.

Complimentary 8x10 and Ordering Session

A couple of weeks after your portrait session you'll come back to view your portraits in person. Here you'll choose your complimentary 8x10 and order additional prints you'd like to purchase. 

The Party

After all the women participating have been photographed we'll have a gallery event, showcasing your portraits and stories! I am so excited to give you this opportunity to own your voice and your experience. It is uniquely yours and deserves to be told. 

Email me using the form below and I'll be in touch. I look forward to sharing your story!
