THE 40 OVER 40 PROJECT

Celebrating women 40+

 

 

Are you 40 plus and beyond?

The 40 over 40 project is for women who want to empower themselves through a mixed boudoir+beauty photo-shoot.

I will be reaching 50 myself next year and this is the right moment to join a global movement,

one of recognizing, embracing and celebrating ourselves.

This is about (re-)veiling, maybe even re-inventing, but certainly (re-)positioning ourselves -as modern women- into the present.

It is about time to take into our own hands, how the world perceives us.

Strong. Independent. Glorious.

I am living proof, that everything is possible. At age 40 i resigned my employment as an Ir. Architect, with no backup plan. I was seeking something I didn't know what it was.

Certainly it was some form of freedom, happiness and integrity.

Here i stand today -ready for you:

Ladies, i am Felicia Schütte,

your personal

award-winning portrait photographer and “Accredited Portrait Fellow”

 

 ...and I am  still an Architect.

“A portrait

isn't just a picture of you, -

it's a journey within.

Let me take you by the hand.”

 

Felicia Schütte

 

 

YOUR STORY - YOUR VOICE

 

You have an important place in this world, because: You are You!

You are special, so is your life-experience, your mission and what you have to say.

In the old days, stories were passed down from generation to generation;

this tradition of sharing is mostly lost in our modern world.

I will interview you before and after your photo-session, to tell your story!

Because you have something to share, that is uniquely you.

“There is a fountain of youth,

your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love.

When you learn to tap this source,

you will truly have defeated age.”

 

Sophia Loren, 81
