There are more women over the age of 50 in the world right now than ever in history, and they are reclaiming their right to be seen. This group is too big to be ignored, too experienced not to be listened to and too gorgeous not to be celebrated!
Women over 50 are healthier, more active, financially stable and more confident than ever. They have raised families, supported spouses and lost themselves in careers and are ready to tap into self love and understand who they truly are. It’s time to start a conversation about the beauty that exists in aging.
I want to showcase your beauty even if you haven’t seen it with your own eyes yet or felt it in your soul. I want to tell your stories & change how society defines 50+ and show the world how fabulous we really are.
♥︎ You Matter
Whether you feel invisible, empowered or somewhere in between, know that you are loved and needed and your story is important!
★ See and believe
My hope is for you to truly reconnect with yourself to see your beauty, your spirit and your soul the way others already see you
The beauty is in the discovery
This project is very close to my heart. As a woman in my 50’s I have experienced lack of self-esteem issues for the longest time and stopped myself from enjoying life! I spent many years being a daughter, a wife, a mother, a business owner & an entrepreneur … but I neglected ME!
When I turned 50 I found myself looking inward and getting to know my authentic self which has been empowering. I began to see a beautiful woman who is a mum to 3 incredible humans, a woman who has spent the past 28 years married to her best friend & biggest supporter and a woman who cherishes true friends who love her the way she is. For me, 2021 is a journey in confidence, self love & self care.
I wanted to create something very special for all women to enjoy. I want every woman to feel and look beautiful. It will be fun, fulfilling and transformational.
join me on this adventure to share the common bond of being 50 and over .. it’s your time to shine too!

So everyone can be inspired too

Any woman over the age of 50! My goal is to photograph a wide variety of women, of all shapes and sizes. Women with different tastes, of different backgrounds and different views of life. Women with one thing in common: they want to feel and look beautiful.
There are only 50 spots for this project… so don’t hesitate… Be bold .. be brave .. it’s your time to shine!
When your photoshoot is over, we will have created some of the most beautiful images you have ever seen of yourself. You’ll be able to choose your favourites, and decide how you’d like to display them.
Samples of all these beautiful products will be in my studio on the day of your photoshoot, so you can see them in person.
My images start at $450 on the Wall and go up from there. My beautiful big Signature Heirloom Box Collections start at $1500 and go up from there. The final images are your choice. There is no hard sell. It’s my job to take images of you that you LOVE so you want them all! Everything you purchase will also be given to you digitally.
I’ve heard every excuse as to why now isn’t the right time to be photographed from “I need to lose weight” to “I’m not photogenic” and “I don’t like my smile” – I promise you no-one thinks they are ‘ready’.
The women on my website are real women – mums, sisters, daughters, grandmothers so trust me, you’re in good hands. You will love your portraits.
As your photographer, I will strategically pose and light you in ways that will be flattering to you.
Not photogenic? Nonsense! It is not your job to be. I’ve got you! It is my job to connect, make you comfortable and show you in your best light with flattering posing & lighting to bring out the authentic you.
Of course! You can bring anyone you wish if you just want some support. But to truly capture your true self… it is sometimes easier to not have distractions of others.
You can also bring someone (mother, daughter, spouse) if you wanted to be photographed together! There would be an additional $200 charge for the extra person and they will also receive their hair & make up done. Wardrobe coordination is also advised and included.
After your portrait session you’ll be able see all your beautiful photos, choose your included 8×10″ (11×14″ mat) Art Print image and have the opportunity to purchase more if you wish. What you purchase is entirely up to you and I’ll show you all the beautiful products available before we begin your session.
After all 50 women have been photographed and stories collected, I will host a special evening with a gallery exhibit and celebration showcasing all of the beautiful portraits. I will not have details of dates and locations until I have finished photographing the women. It will be an event that you won’t want to miss!

You are welcome and encouraged to share a link to my website with any of your friends or family who may want to share in this experience.

You are so amazing at what you do you have such a gift. Thank you for holding my hand through it all and all your encouragement and support.
“You are amazing!”
‘Oh my golly gosh!!!!! I have just seen all my photos…holy guacamole woman! You are amazing!!! I don’t even know where to begin saying thank you ? I am blown away. Love you beautiful, thank you, thank you, thank YOUUU xoxoxo’
“You are a blessing”
Thank you so much Cindy for bringing the essence of Anita to the fore with this wonderfully skilled medium. You are a blessing & a minister of God’s love. With much love and appreciation xo
“I love your work”
I love your work Cindy! You have such an eye for showing off a woman’s true beauty, and honouring it. Onwards and upwards you wonderful woman.
“I have never felt so pretty”
Pt I: Oh my goshness. I’m really quite emotional about this! Never in my whole life have I ever felt so pretty! I’m the girl with a big heart or who is ‘beautiful on the inside’. I’m not a pretty girl. And that’s totally fine because I accepted that as a teen and moved on. But this makes me cry. So much, because perhaps I really can be pretty on the outside too. Thank you so much for being able to see this in me. And bring it out too.
“I highly recommend Cindy”
Cindy is an amazing photographer who has a fantastic eye for capturing people. She is very creative with her setting up photo shoots and has a flair for creating photos that people cherish. Cindy recently shot a beautiful series of my wife that we both loved. I highly recommend Cindy to anyone considering a photo session.
“The subject, namely me, is lovely!”
Like many of us, I have battled low self esteem for the majority of my life. As a result I have always struggled with being satisfied or content with what I see of myself either reflected from a mirror image or in a photo. When I saw the pictures you took at the premiere I was delighted. The more that I look at these beautiful pictures, the more it is dawning on me, not just how lovely they are, (and they are lovely) …but the subject, namely me, is lovely.
“I really can’t find the right words”
Pt II : FRICK! I just have to say that you are just so amazing Cindy. I really, really cant find the right words to express how I’m feeling right now! You know I’m the chick with messy hair, jeans & ugg boots on! If Cindy, Katie & Sim can make ME look like this, imagine what they could do for you. xxx
“The photoshoot was so empowering, such a gift”
I turn 30 tomorrow and I can’t even express how wonderful it feels to have done my makeover shoot last week, a true celebration, an end of an era and beginning of a new chapter. I am a little emotional about turning 30, my 20?s have been hard work. The photoshoot was so empowering, such a gift! It was all randomly meant to be. I cannot thank you enough Cindy you have been amazing through the whole process! Your work is truly stunning you are so talented! Can’t wipe the smile off my face today I was overwhelmed with how great they are! Thank you again so much for being so fabulous your a gem x
“I think I’m going to happy faint”
I’m crying crying crying!!! This is the bestest. My heart is pounding like crazy and I think I’m going to happy faint. I NEED to hug you big time. Oh how I love it!!!
Oh wow … Cindy, you are sensational! Again, thank you for your energy, passion, talent and the way you made all of us feel so beautiful. Michael’s comment was ‘Wooooahhhh!’ xx
“I’m still shaking my head in awe”
Cindy you NEVER cease to amaze me!! you have to be the most talented person I know! you truly rock the photography world lady. I’m still shaking my head in awe! xx
“That was truly amazing, so precious”
Oh my word Cindy there are just no words to describe just how talented you are, that was truly amazing so so precious, thankyou xxxxxxxxxxxx
“Thank you for making me feel so beautiful”
I am still on a high after my photoshoot. I had such an amazing time and enjoyed the beauty of being vulnerable worthy and special. THANK YOU! I CAN NOT find the words to tell you enough how richly you have blessed me. Again THANK YOU! I keep looking at my glamorous photographs and literally get tears in my eyes, thank you for making me feel so beautiful, it has been an amazing experience that just keeps on going. I seriously can not say enough about what an impact you have had in my life.
