40 OVER 40
Join the celebration.
I am looking for 40 women aged 40+ to join me for a one-of-a-kind experience. Together we will tell 40 tales of wisdom,
believe that every woman deserves to be celebrated and feel beautiful in pictures. Too often, women put others before themselves, they work hard, they dedicate themselves to being amazing mums, being supportive friends, and end up not having time to look after themselves. They deserve to be celebrated, to be seen, to be pampered, and to see their true value reflected in beautiful photographs.
So in celebration of International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day I have partnered with the wonderful Nerys Copping and Kate Fletcher to offer you a chance to win a portrait experience, complete with a Styling Session and professional Hair & Make-Up. Find out more in the video below.
Your portrait session will be tailored to your style and preference to highlight your unique personality; and every part of the experience is designed to take the stress out of having photos taken. Our goal is to pamper you, to empower you, and to help you throughout your entire photoshoot and to show you the most beautiful photos you have ever seen of yourself.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
“Why should I do this?”
You should do this for you. Because you are beautiful. Just as you are, now. Not 10lbs lighter, not 10 years ago, now. Too many women avoid being in front of the camera because they’ve been disappointed in the past. I’ve been there and I understand this. But what would it be like to look at your images and feel pride and love? What would it be like for your children to find and hold beautiful photos of you in 20, 30, 40 years time? We challenge you to let us pamper you, dress you up, and take the most incredible portraits of you.
“I am not photogenic / I don’t know how to pose”
Don’t worry about it - no one that I photograph think they’re photogenic! In fact I don’t even believe being photogenic is a thing - it’s all about how relaxed and comfortable you get in front of the camera, and it’s my job to get you there! I will guide you throughout your entire shoot, placing your in the best light and showing you how to position your body to flatter your natural beauty - but most of it we will just be chatting and having a great time, and it will show in your portraits!
“Can I be photographed with anyone else?”
Absolutely! You can bring your partner, your children, your mum, your sister, or even your best friend to be photographed with you!
“Where & when will the photoshoot take place?”
At Elodie’s studio in Cambridge. We will offer a range of options for you to pick from.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“As soon as we got started I felt instantly at ease, the constant words of encouragement did so much for my confidence and by the time I left I felt I was walking 2 inches taller, I felt so confident! I got so emotional when I first saw my pictures - I LOVED them! I hadn't planned on sharing them with anyone but I just had too -I felt so proud of myself and empowered!”
