“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty and irresistible for the rest of you life” – Coco Chanel

I love photographing women; especially older women. I love to show them what I see and not what they might see. As we grow older we definitely become more relaxed and comfortable with ourselves and all our bumps, lumps and wrinkles. But we can also get caught up in how the world wants us to grow older. Growing older gracefully is such a blessing! Every wrinkle has earned it’s right and definitely has some awesome stories to share.

In the last couple of years I realised that a lot of women over 40 (and that includes me!) don’t have recent gorgeous professional photos of themselves. Yes, there are loads of awkward selfies photographed from the wrong angle making us look like jelly fish; but there are very few (if any) showing our grace and beauty. We all need to feel beautiful and we all need to be loved and love ourselves and so a great way of doing just that is to come and visit me for a gorgeous photo session.

Karina and her hubby recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary and so there was no better time than now to have beautiful portraits of her celebrating this beautiful stage of her life. She definitely shines from within with her beautiful mind, heart and soul. And to top it all off she was definitely blessed with gorgeous looks. I first photographed Karina in the studio, but I do have a love for natural light and outdoor photo sessions, so the next part of her session was done down at the beach. Although it was terribly windy, Karina kept her cool and I got the chance to capture her in all her glory with a stunning result.

In Karina’s own words; “this was so out of my comfort zone, but so special and so worth it”.
