Seven days shooting women of all ages and sizes in some of the most spectacular scenery. At night and over meals we would talk and bond and find things
in common. I began to realize how important being with other women is to our souls. We need each other! We like to bounce ideas and thoughts around between ourselves
to try and make sense of our world and how we live in it. We empower each other so much in this situation....one on one.....we are so positive and giving and loving.
We really are at our best. Yes, there were some tears shed and stories told, but it was such a safe environment to do so.
As each girl had her makeup done and donned all sorts of fabulous clothes, they all supported and encouraged each other, with "oh you look amazing in that" or "that colour
really suits you". Great positive vibes to encourage each other as I'm sure a photo shoot can be intimidating!
And speaking of intimidating..... we were also offered the chance to be photographed ourselves...in the nude or otherwise. At first I said "no way, I'm the photographer!
But then as the days went by and it was so safe and beautiful and the other photographers were so lovely and non judgemental,
I just thought to myself, "well, if not now, when?"
So, I did and can only say, I am sooooo glad I did! I learned how my clients will feel, the nerves and that little voice that says "you're too old to be
photographed in the nude" I am not too old and I'm me, no one else, and proud of it, lines and scars and bumps and all!
Which leads me to say, when I got back, as I reflected on how I felt, what I learned and would I want to help other ladies feel this way too?......I just said YES!
Then I broke my leg in a skiing accident. :(
So, I've been off work, healing from surgery, and learning to walk again these past 3 months.
So much time to reflect and ponder, which grows to plan and strategize....and build a new website.... all leads to here!
Would YOU like to join me for a ladies 40+ retreat in Mexico?
A safe, empowering place to ourselves where you will come away feeling mighty proud of yourself and it may possibly change
but definitely rock your world!
I tell you all about it on my Destination page, here on the site..... there's a real fun video from January's trip and a FAQ and more info to be had......
So think about it, but not too long.... room for 10 wonderful new friends.....ladies 40+ and fabulous!, Nov.25 - Dec 2/2019
