Maxeen

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” – Audrey Hepburn

If ever a quote describes someone perfectly, this one is it! Maxeen is a stunning 79 year young wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and a fantastic friend to all her friends. She is kind hearted, soft, gentle and always goes out of her way to help anyone in need. When I look at her, I see the light that shines from within, the inner beauty.

What I loved the most about this specific photo session was to see Maxeen blossom in front of my lens. She sparkled in every way possible. The next day she phoned me to share how her day turned out after she left my Perth studio. Her husband is in a care facility and so she went to visit him. He did not recognise her at first and when he realised it was her he could not take his eyes off her. He calls her his model now! She said she caught him every couple of minutes just staring at her. All he wanted to do was take her out for dinner and show her off to the world! This made me tear up … and this is exactly why I have this passion to show every woman over 45 that she is deserving, she is beautiful and she has a light within that shines like a bright star. It’s just that sometimes we, as the over 45 group of women, forget about ourselves and then our light becomes dimmer and dimmer because we are so focused on everyone’s happiness around us.

No words can really describe Maxine’s beauty, so I’ll let the images do the talking.

Thank you Maxeen for allowing me to photograph you in your beautiful silver years. You truly are a remarkable woman and I’m pretty sure your family is so in love with you and so proud of you.

Love,

Natasha xoxo
