Are you a woman over 50-years-old?

Join my new photography project, WISE WOMEN. This is a project to celebrate women who enjoy life after 50.

Why women over 50?

I am turning 50 in 2020 and I want to celebrate this entire year by photographing 50 women who are already 50 years old (and above) to share with me the spirit of WISE WOMEN and what they would like to share to the world.

What is this about, really?

WISE WOMEN is a project to celebrate women who will leave something tangible, printed portraits, as a proof of their life and love for themselves and others.

Portraits are powerful. They help people to see themselves, feel proud of themselves, build their confidence, build dreams and go after them.

Participants chosen to be part of WISE WOMEN will go through a luxury experience they will always remember.

Those beautiful portraits will be created at the studio, downtown Colorado Springs, CO.

My goal is to photograph and interview 50 WISE WOMEN who are 50 and older and celebrate that achievement with a photographic exhibition at the end.

I want to show the beauty, the spirit and the strength of women in the 21st century.

Reasons for you to participate

  • You are alive today

  • You enjoy life fully

  • You feel beautiful and comfortable in your skin

  • You recognize your strength, your struggles, your confidence (or lack of it)

  • You know you want to feel heard, seen and appreciated

  • You want to share what it means to be older and wiser in today’s world

  • You want to create memories that your family will hold and inherit one day

  • You have a milestone to celebrate

  • You want to feel pampered - believe me, you will!

If you were gone tomorrow…do you think your children would say ‘I wish my mom was 20 pounds lighter?’
They would do anything to turn back time, and they would say :
‘I wish I had MORE pictures of my mom’
’I wish I had a beautiful portrait WITH my mom’
’I wish I had a portrait of my mom when she was feeling HAPPY’
— Simone Severo

What I hear all the time:

  • “I want to lose 20 pounds”

  • “I am not photogenic”

  • “I don’t have anything to wear”

…followed by:

  • “Oh My Gosh, is that me?”

  • “I look so beautiful!”

  • “How am I going to choose?”

  • “I had so much fun!”

  • “Can we do this every year?”

  • “I felt like a movie star.”
