Last year I started my first campaign for women over 50. I wanted to help change the way the media and society define aging, to cultivate the freedom and confidence that result from appreciating—and loving–our own maturity. This campaign spoke to Lisa so strongly that she flew to New Hampshire from her home in California for a portrait session for Extraordinary: the Over 50 Revolution. She truly is extraordinary.

Lisa is drawn to simplicity, both in wardrobe and composition. She’s not afraid of serious expressions. I love these. We all know what a broad grin means, so we might be inclined to give that kind of image only a brief glance. All the other expressions are an invitation to the viewer to look closer. A closer looks creates empathy, and empathy creates connection; it brings people together.
Eyes open, eyes closed! Lisa was open to breaking the “rules” of portraiture.
She was also open to challenging the expectations of how women are “supposed” to present themselves in a portrait – soft and sweet. Bravo to beauty AND power, in all its forms!
In addition to portraits, we created headshots that Lisa can use for work.
In one set, we played with conveying emotion using a slow shutter combined with a little movement.
