Helen, celebrating 56 fabulous years

9 portraits of an amazing lady

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


The idea for this project came from my experience of ageing, from the incredible women I have photographed who apologise for their flaws before celebrating their beauty, from other cultures who treat their older women with respect & reverence & from friends who are navigating the mysteries of ageing with joy, strength, courage & humour. It came from the belief that we should tell the stereotypes to rack off. Age whatever way you want, & celebrate every moment, as it is a privilege to age when so many in our world do not have that opportunity.


Helen is the second project participant to have had her post-shoot meeting. With Helen’s shoot we wanted to capture Helen and her many aspects of her personality and her life and it was a lovely process doing this. I caught up today with Helen and her husband Tuck, watched Helen’s beautiful shoot slideshow & I went over ways for Helen to cull her gallery & come up with a favourite or two! I cannot wait to find out which image is Helen’s favourite as it will become the second image for the exhibition!


The Your Face, Your Story Project started off as a project of the heart for me and is turning out to be much more than I could have ever imagined.


I have five places remaining for the 2024 Your Face, Your Story Project. If you want to learn more about this project, please email me at
