Can you relate to this?

Have you noticed the midlife invisibility cloak has descended?

There’s a moment in every woman’s life when we suddenly realise we seem to be invisible.  Our kids roll their eyes at us when we make a comment – our partner doesnt even appear to lift their eyes from the telly or phone when we walk into the room.  A lot of us have parents to care for aswell – it’s as though there is nothing left for just US anymore. We look in the mirror and feel a stab of anguish for what we have become – and wonder why we’ve spent our whole lives wishing we looked this way or that way.  We lose our confidence  and we blame ourselves. We start to let ourselves go a bit and it all becomes a depressing cycle of a self fulfilling prophecy.

However.  Whilst we can’t control how age affects our bodies but we can control our attitude towards those changes. We deserve to love and celebrate our bodies at every stage of life. We deserve to proud of the life we have lived, the battles we have fought and hold our heads high.

So – if you want to do something positive  for yourself…..

and would love to just shake things up and do something exciting
READ ON!!
 But be careful – this can be life changing
 
YOU’RE INVITED TO BE PART OF A UNIQUE AND LUXURIOUS PHOTOSHOOT EXPERIENCE CULMINATING IN A GALLERY EXHIBITION AND CELEBRATION OF oLDER WOMEN AND THEIR STORIES.

Ladies – it’s time to stop feeling invisible  – it’s a time to show them that it’s fun growing older – and we can do it as disgracefully as we like!

Let’s show them we can be confident and free in our own bodies and reject the clichés that have defined older women for years.

Let’s bring some joy back into our lives!

Let’s do something that is purely and gloriously just for YOU!

FOLLOWING ON FROM THE STUNNING SUCCESS OF THE FIRST PROJECT - BOOKINGS ARE NOW BEING TAKEN FOR THE 50 OVER 50 PROJECT - CHAPTER TWO

About the first project

This project has been such an emotional but  rewarding experience! Sitting down with each of our campaign participants has given us the opportunity to learn more about women we might not have otherwise met. Each has had their own reasons for stepping in front of my camera, and we know that for most of the ladies, it’s NOT been an easy thing to do.

Being photographed can be an incredibly vulnerable experience, especially if you’re not used to having a camera in your face all the time. And given that most women, if they’re mothers or grandparents, are used to being the one taking the photos, well…you know! We women are SO hard on ourselves. We’re not thin enough, tall enough, young enough…blah, blah blah.

So, to willingly sign up and PAY to be put into what most people probably feel is a very awkward and vulnerable situation…well, kudos to our lovely ladies.   To us – and their families – they proved themselves  to be BRAVE, CONFIDENT, REBELLIOUS INSPIRING, EMPOWERING, and most of all WORTHY. This was an opportunity for them  to see the beauty and the sass that is sometimes deeply hidden or ignored or forgotten- and my goodness we brought it out!

We held the exhibition at the beautiful Red Hall in Bourne  on 7th  May 2022.  It was tearful,  vibrant, exciting and fun.  And we raised just over £2000 for Breast Cancer.  We made new best friends for life.  We want to do it again. We were told to do it again by all the ladies that participated – so that other women could  experience the joy and yes – the empowerment  – that they have gained from this .

So- are you ready? Remember there are only 50 spaces!

I had reached a point where whenever I looked in the mirror I only saw housewife and mum. The experience transformed my perception of myself and suddenly I rediscovered my smouldering sexy sexy side, proving age is just a number xx

I've just got home from meeting Sharon after choosing my photos oh my what a high I'm on, after not thinking I'd like any photos it was so hard to decide which ones I wanted, Sharon & Katie are amazingly talented. I went looking like worzel and left feeling like Marilyn Monroe and this is why.... I even got REALLY brave at the end and showed off my normally very hidden tattoo For any ladies thinking you can't do this, believe me you can! xx Sharon H

Today I had my boudoir photo shoot… I hardly slept last night!? This morning I checked my route a few times on Google maps to see how long it would take me to get there!?.. I left in plenty of time and arrived early!! Sharon was so welcoming and it wasn’t an issue. I looked a wreck… Very nervous… Also butterflies as not knowing what to expect 🤔… Well… I had a fantastic time with Sharon and Katie 😊… I know we are all individuals… And it was obvious from the start that they look and treat you like that.. You aren’t just another client.. Thank you so much for today.. You were both wonderful and patient with me…. I can’t really remember the drive home as I was singing along to the radio. If you are still waiting for your shoot… Don’t hesitate to think about cancelling.. Go for it.. You will glad you did… Thank you Sharon and Katie 😊😘❤️ Debbie S

So happy with them I feel they look so good and if I do say so myself I look hot!!! When I get them I will maybe post a couple!! Every woman should do this at least once…..any ladies thinking about it honestly just do it xxx  Sue L

boudoir shoot for older ladies

“I’ve now come back to Earth, had such a fantastic day with Sharon and Katie and the old me whom I missed so much. When I first got there I was anxious and a little worried but I’d no need to be I was made so relaxed and made to feel so special just like been with old friends. You really worked your magic, a great day so much fun and relaxing surprisingly. What else can I say! Thank you so much. Cannot wait now to see my photos.!”  Sam A

“Words can’t express how delighted I feel following my shoot today. Despite the fact I was having second thoughts and then forgot a key item of clothing, Sharon and Katie put me at ease and found me a replacement. I have had the most wonderful day. A few months ago I was in the middle of a mental crisis and spent sometime in a recovery house. I have terrible anxiety yet I have jumped so far forward todayI know the old me is returning. If only Sharon and Katie could bottle the experience I could ditch my pills 😍. I arrived feeling nervous apprehensive and questioning my reason for doing this, I left with a fab hair style a big ego and a much better outlook on life. My self esteem and self worth are far greater than they were 24 hours ago. What a difference a day makes especially if your in the safe hands of Sharon and Katie. I can’t wait to see the photos so excited and very happy” Alison T

“Just got home after a fantastic time with Sharon and Katie . I walked in feeling nervous and that I would be judged. My confidence was pretty low due to life really . I have no idea how the girls did it but I am on top of the moon . I have had the most fabulous time thankyou so much for helping me to find myself again xx” Linda

“I met so many lovely ladies at the exhibition that all have a story to tell and all reveal that even though our confidence has been knocked we all come back twice as strong. Both Sharon and Katie do an amazing job to make you feel a movie star for a few hours, but that is enough to to give you the boost to face the world again. My admiration goes to all the women who have taken part and – to the ones thinking about it – what are you waiting for?” – Sue Butler

Read through our first souvenir 50 over 50 magazine

I was one of the first 50 over 50 ladies and can not even find the words to describe how nervous I was. I wanted to walk, to cancel. I needed to lose some weight first I told myself as I was preparing to leave. I am not good enough. I will never be enough. But you are!! You are enough, be enough for you. Realise your biggest strength, is you. Your body, figure, wobbly bits, stretch marks, cellulite whatever, are your story. Never be ashamed of your story, never be ashamed of yourself. The ladies here are amazing. Really know how to make you feel comfortable. All whilst adhering to covid rules and yet it didn't feel like that took away from the experience at all. The worries and concerns of todays world were forgotten whilst being made to feel a million dollars. Everything is set out so beautifully, you are very well looked after here. Whilst holding my nerves having my make up done still thinking what am I doing I was thinking how would the images look, would I look stupid? Would I look like im giving the wrong impression - but now - I’m so excited to see the photos! Can't recommend Symply highly enough. Thank you so much ladies 😍
