As women, society puts so much pressure on us about body image and aging. Women not only face pressures of being career women and raising a family, but we also have pressures of maintaining our youthful looks of our 20’s. As aging women we are constantly pressured with ads and media to get botox, plastic surgery, and the latest slimming diet pill. It is no wonder that when we hit our 40’s we’re questioning and doubting ourselves whether we could be better, thinner, more youthful, prettier, etc.
Getting older should be a celebration! A celebration of surviving all life’s pressures thrown at us thus far. When we look at ourselves in the mirror we should not be wishing we looked like we did in our 20’s. We are women at nearly 40, not little girls anymore. A sense of maturity comes with that. We should embrace it! Be proud of it! We’ve earned it!
When Mia inquired about doing a celebration session with me for her 45th birthday I was ecstatic!
Mia is a mother, nurse and teacher. She gives daily to others. So I made it my goal to give back to her by showcasing her beauty, her spunk and elegance of aging through my photo session with her! I enjoyed this shoot so much! For anyone interested in celebrating your age, please feel free to contact me!
Thank you Mia for inspiring not only me but other women to embrace their age and to have fun doing so!
