ARE YOU A WOMAN IN HER 40's, 50's, or 60's+?
THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE!
I'm searching for 40 women over the age of 40 who would like to empower themselves through a self love/body celebration session. I want to start a conversation around the beauty of aging and change the way the world sees and hears us.
We are sensual, desirable and vibrant beings. 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 and change how the media defines us. Join me in this exciting exploration of mature women by participating in this project that will transform the way you feel in your own skin.
“We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not over-looked and ignored.”
— Sheryl Sandberg
THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
WHAT DOES IT COST?
I'm offering this 40 Over 40 promotional package for just $350 (Valued at $725).
THE 40 OVER 40 EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
- A PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION (BY PHONE, ZOOM/FACETIME OR IN-PERSON)
During this time we will discuss all the details regarding your session, all pricing information, and I will answer any questions you may have.
- PROFESSIONAL HAIR & MAKEUP
You will receive a professional makeover for your session including hair and makeup stylizing.
You will look stunning so make plans for the night!
- ACCESS TO MY CLIENT WARDROBE
Designer dresses, tulle, fabrics and accessories that photograph beautifully!
- FULL PHOTO SESSION WITH MULTIPLE WARDROBE CHANGES
I will fully guide you and pose you from head to toe. It is not your job to know how to pose or to be photogenic.
I will make that inner goddess come out! It's a promise!
$350 CREDIT TO USE TOWARDS ANY OF YOUR FAVORITE PORTRAITS
You’ll be invited back for your REVEAL appointment within 4-5 days after your photo shoot. If you’re coming from a distance, a remote session can be arranged. First, we will watch a video with all of your behind-the-scenes footage from your session. After we will have your REVEAL where you’ll see all your beautiful portraits professionally printed and matted up in the studio. You will be able to use your full $350 sitting fee towards single portraits or a collection of your choice. What you purchase is entirely up to you and I’ll show you all the beautiful products available at your consultation or session.
NOTE: My full product menu and pricing is available at your consultation and will also be sent to all participants when booking.
INCLUSION IN MY 40 OVER 40 MAGAZINE & GALLERY EVENT
At the end of this project, I’ll select my favorite portrait from your session to be included with your story in my 40 Over 40 magazine and gallery exhibition. We’ll celebrate all of the women participating in this project with a celebration event and exhibit showcase. You’re welcome to invite all your girlfriends, family, and friends to come and help applaud every woman who had the courage to step outside her comfort zone and show the world what real beauty looks like. The initial plan also includes a local news station to broadcast this event or help strengthen this 40 Over 40 revolution.

"As a student of photography I've presently been fascinated with methods and mannerisms meant for drawing out the best from a soul before the lens. Aven Willow Portraits has mastered this technique! As a professional model, my wife, Rachelle has been photographed extensively over the years, but only one other photographer has drawn so much of her beauty and essence into their images as Jodie has done. If you want to have your best self from both within and without to beam from your portraits, make an appointment for an experience at Aven Willow Portraits."
