Turning 40 is a milestone in life. It’s a point in one’s life that they have to begin to put away childish things and close the book on old chapters in their lives. For black women, it should be a time to celebrate and begin a new journey in life. As they say, “40 is the new 20.” We see black celebrities over 40 all the time. Today is a day where I showcase everyday black women, our unsung women of power. They are the Real Jewels of Royalty. What better way to celebrate this milestone and to show people that I truly appreciate you all?
The images that you see are beautiful black women that’s at least 40 years of wisdom and up. These are various women I’ve photographed over the past few years in my journey (Please click on the photo for best quality).
I have learned a lot from these ladies. I am also inspired to take this blog entry into a different direction:
Today I am starting a Photo Campaign for Black Women over 40.
The Goal is to show that women over 40 are just as vibrant, beautiful, and age like fine wine. The saying goes that Black don’t crack. I want to be able to show black women in a positive light in a series of powerful portraits/showing off their personality. Black women are the trendsetters and every other women on the planet wants your body, hair etc. We are unique people and you are beautiful black women. We are perhaps the most imitated people in the world. The end game is to show off black women's uniqueness and print out the best photo or two and be able to share it in a gallery one day. You do not have to be a model. I ask that you block out at least 1-2 hrs of your time for the session. We can conduct the session indoor or outdoor. Make sure you are prepared to shine and show off your beautiful spirit.
If you are interested in partaking in this campaign, please feel free to email me. In addition, you will receive 10 photos from the shoot for participating.
In Closing, We need to continue to always strive to help and uplift each other daily. When you see a woman of color over 40, please inform her that you appreciate her.
