What advice would I give my 20-year-old self…
Travel and stretch beyond your comfort zone, and learn more about the world.
Enjoy your healthy body to the maximum and celebrate its vitality.
Experience the world at the height of your strength and youth.
We all experience many lifetimes in this one life. What did you find were the most poignant changes as you entered your 40’s?
My body was not so resilient, with hormonal changes and brain fog. I figured out what was good and bad for me. At age 40, more things have fallen into place for me, and I have more perspective on life. I have grown from all my previous experiences and I’m living a more intentional life.

You get a little out of breath, but the view is much better.” Ingrid Bergman
True beauty is in a woman’s soul. The beauty of a woman, with the passing years, only grows.
I met Ish at my barre class in Greenpoint last year, and we hit it off instantly. Ish is one of the warmest and most welcoming souls I’ve ever met, and being in her company one can only feel uplifted and energized. When Ish arrived at my studio, she was so excited to be photographed! Donna Hay did hair and makeup, and we had music on and the hours flew past. What a day! Here are some favourites from the shoot.
The campaign has been an incredible adventure so far, both for myself and the inspiring women I’ve had in front of my camera. I’m looking forward to the exhibition which will be in early July!
