Are you a woman who is in her 40’s or over?
Then this is for you!

I am in search of 40 incredible women in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and over, for an empowering, fun, and transformational magazine-style photoshoot experience, between June 2021 and June 2022.

It will conclude with a special finale of a limited edition printed magazine  AND gallery exhibition in Cape Town, with YOU showcased in both!

And I’d love you to be one of them!


“I’m not a fan of the spotlight and was so nervous for my photoshoot. I am so overwhelmed with how much I love my photos! Monica’s warm and friendly manner melted all my nerves and made it such a fun experience. I’m so glad I did this shoot, I’ve never felt so good about myself! Thank you, Monica, you are just pure magic!”

–  Tammy

It’s my heartfelt pursuit to create incredible portraits of you, that you will look at with love, admiration, and pride. And fall in love with yourself again.

I believe that a house truly becomes a HOME when it has beautifully framed portraits of you and your loved ones, displayed on your walls!

Hello, I’m Monica Dart,  an international, award-winning photographer, based in Cape Town, South Africa. I’ve had the opportunity over the past 16 years, to meet and photograph a diverse group of people, in 17 countries around the globe. I have felt a deep purpose connecting with each person that has bravely graced my lens,  and I feel privileged to have so many personal life stories shared with me.

“Life tells the best stories. Let me tell yours.”

Why be a part of this stylish portrait shoot experience?

It’s my 50th birthday this year!
And I want to CELEBRATE!

As I say farewell to my 40’s, and welcome in a new decade, I can look back and acknowledge how much I have grown. I’ve also realized that with every new challenge I’ve encountered, I’ve become braver, and found my voice. I recently had a photoshoot done of myself that changed the way I see myself.

I believe that real beauty is celebrating what makes us different. And that it doesn’t diminish with age.
I know we all have a story to share. And I want to celebrate YOU and your story.

I’m excited! Are you IN?

Whether you’re a supermom in her 40’s or over, running her entire household, to a woman that is going through a divorce, new marriage, career, or life change, whatever your journey, I welcome you all.
The only requirement is that you are 40 or over.  Come and do this for you, or bring your daughter(s), sister, or mother, and enjoy a girl’s day out! Your photo session can be as glam or as casual as you’d like.

How do you dream of being photographed?

There is beauty in every single woman I meet. So please join me, and come and experience yourself through my lens. And let’s celebrate YOU!

How much does it cost?

I am offering the 40 over 40 special promo package for an incredible price of

Consultation: wardrobe, styling, planning

This is where we’ll discuss your wardrobe and the details for the day. Your session will be fully customized to suit YOU! It can be as glam, quirky, or sexy as you choose!

This is also a great time for me to reassure you of any fears you may have.

Professional hair and makeup

I work with a lovely team of hair and makeup artists! One will be there on the day to give you a makeover, that will help you look and feel confident in your skin.

Up to 90 min. guided photo session and 2 wardrobe changes

I take the stress out of having portraits taken. I’ve heard all the objections that arise, like,
“I’m not photogenic enough”,
“I just need to lose some weight first”,
“I don’t feel comfortable having portraits taken”, or
“I don’t know how to pose.”

I’m here to tell you that it’s not your job to be photogenic or know how to pose.
It’s my job to guide you through your entire session, including wardrobe and styling beforehand, and create the most beautiful photos you have ever seen of yourself. So I invite you to this fully guided portrait session with me!
It’ll change the way you see yourself!

Reveal session

Approximately 1 week after your photo session, we will meet back at my studio. Here you’ll enjoy an exciting slideshow and photo reveal session from a selection of the best 30-40 portraits of you.

Select your one complimentary image for printing and framing, and then if you decide to purchase more, I will show you the gorgeous folio boxes, albums, and framing I offer.

1x complimentary magazine with YOU IN IT!

This will be gifted to you at the end of the 40 over 40 campaign in 2022. It will showcase YOU, and all the incredible women that participated. It will tell your story.

Access to a private invitation-only 40 over 40 VIP group

Isn’t it time to be SEEN and to CELEBRATE the strong & independent woman you have become?


  • You’ll be interviewed by me after the photoshoot to find out your views about being a woman over 40 or over, perhaps a story you’d like to share.  This could even be some advice you wish you could say to your younger self.
  • Interviews may be shared on my website and social media.
  • Before and After makeover transformational photos may be shown (which you get to approve first).
