Yo Soy Suficiente - I Am Enough
Roxanne turned 46 this year. The mid forties can feel like a turning point woman's life and it's one that deserves to be celebrated for achieving a certain level of self-love and self-expression. It's also the start of those years during which we begin to act as caregivers for our parents as they age and illness strikes. Amongst everything else that 2020 under Covid wrought, Roxanne lost her father unexpectedly in August to Pancreatic cancer.
When she came across my Rock Your Age portrait session, she decided to treat herself.
"What resonated with me about the project is its focus on women of mature age and all of the substance and non-conventional beauty that we have to offer."
During the consultation phase on designing her shoot, we selected a variety of carefully chosen looks and then on shoot day gave ourselves permission to improvise everything else. Here are just a few of Roxanne's favorites, which we crafted into a stunning linen covered Photobook by Milk.
Proof is in the pudding as Roxanne is stepping into her forties with grace, moxie and determination to explore life in every aspect that interests her. From modeling to learning how to fly a plane and traveling more, she is on an inspiring path of self-discovery and growth. It was exciting to work with her on this collection of portraits that honor her spirit, beauty and multi-cultural heritage.
She says, "This has put me back in touch with my talent and with the fun and focus that such experiences hold. I would absolutely recommend it to others."
