Helen, celebrating 56 fabulous years


Portrait of a woman outside


Helen, celebrating 56 fabulous years with the Your Face, Your Story Project.


Helen is one of the incredible women participating in the Your Face, Your Story Project and was the first to have her shoot. Helen sent me this message following the shoot, “I had such a lovely time. I was sad it had to end” and I felt much the same.


The Your Face, Your Story Project is all about celebrating the lives of women over 40. With Helen’s shoot, we wanted to capture images that capture Helen’s many different sides. We had several outfit changes in the studio, and we finished the shoot on a granite rock and a dirt road as Helen’s connection to nature is very important to her.


Helen is an absolute rockstar. She is a founding member of Shimmy 2 Support (on FB: Shimmy in the Glen) which uses the fun of belly dancing to begin meaningful conversations, raise awareness, and fundraise for support services for the victims and survivors of domestic and family abuse. She is a powerhouse of a woman doing good things for people.


She can also move like you would not believe! Apparently, it is all in the feet, and while I cannot move my body like Helen does I am working on the feet! I even practiced a bit during the shoot!


I am catching up with Helen later this month to go through her gallery which I am very excited about but in the meantime, I couldn’t resist sharing this image where Helen is just glowing from within.


The Your Face, Your Story Project is all about celebrating the lives of women over 40 and challenging the stereotypes of women and ageing.

 

Be part of the revolution! I am looking for 40 women over 40 to be part of this project. Please contact me if you are interested. This is turning out to be such a joyful project and we are getting close to our 40 which is very exciting!
