The 50 Over 50 & Fabulous Project.  Women 50+ are strong, beautiful, confident, and wise.  That's cause for celebration.

Too many women over 50 feel pressured to look younger, and I'm here to change that.

Today, nearly 35% of the U.S. population is 50+, with the numbers rapidly rising. Women like you are too many to be ignored and too fabulous not to be celebrated. The time for a conversation about the beauty of aging is here. Be fearless, confident, and comfortable in your own skin, and join me on the "50 Over 50 and Fabulous" adventure.

EMBRACE YOUR AGE AND BEAUTY WITH A FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE CULMINATING IN A GALLERY-STYLE ART EXHIBITION AND CELEBRATION OF THE STORIES OF FIFTY WOMEN AGE 50+

WHAT ELSE IS IN IT FOR ME BESIDES AN UNFORGETTABLE, SELF-EMPOWERING EXPERIENCE?

As one of our "50 over 50 & fabulous" women, you'll receive:

  • An in-person style & concept consultation prior to your photography session to help me understand how you want to be photographed, brainstorm about creative ideas, pick outfits, and select the perfect location for your session, whether in-studio or outdoors.
  • The Makeup Guide - the written guide and a how-to video with gorgeous looks that work on everyone and easy-to-follow breakdowns. Or alternatively, get a virtual makeup lesson via Zoom with our professional makeup artist.
  • An up to 3-hour, indoor-outdoor, multi-location, multiple wardrobe change, fully directed beauty photography session, at which I'll expertly pose you perfectly from head to toe.
  • An in-person "photo reveal" and ordering appointment where all your beautiful photographs will be unveiled, you'll choose the image for your complimentary matted desktop portrait, and have the opportunity to purchase more.
  • A selection of your photographs and/or a video slideshow will be published on our blog and in social media, together with your story.

HOW WILL I BE FEATURED IN THE PROJECT SHOWCASE?

  • You'll share your views about being a woman 50+ in an interview with me before/after your photography session.
  • A selection of your photographs and/or a video slideshow will be published on our blog and in social media, together with your story.

MORE ABOUT THE 50 OVER 50 PROJECT

  • There's never been a better time in history to be a woman 50+!
  • Beauty doesn't diminish with age. Let's celebrate that!
  • Let your voice be heard. Let your story about what it means to be 50+ today be told.
  • Celebrate your beauty and appreciate each line, scar, and grey hair!

Let's disrupt - then transform - the way women 50+ are viewed or fogotten by the media and by society. Together, we'll create beautiful & authentic imagery accompanied by real stories from 50 real women age 50+.

Don't let this chance to be seen and heard pass you by!

WHY OVER 50, WHY ME, AND WHY NOW?

I'll turn 47 later this year. (That's me in the photo at left in the mauve & burgundy.) My next big birthday will be the big 5-0. It sounds like a big number, and I know I grow older with the passing of each year, but the thing is, I don't feel old. I'm starting to have too many grey hairs to consistently pull out, but I don't think I look old. Women 50+ like you make up nearly 35% of the U.S. population, and I'll be joining you very, very soon. I REFUSE to become invisible and forgotten!

So let's work together, starting now. I promise, the experience will be fun, fulling, and transformational. The REVOLUTION is within all of us... I want to coax it out of you!

Join me on this fun and incredible adventure!

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

I would love to photograph a wide variety of women of all ages 50+, all shapes & sizes, and all ethnicities in celebration of the diversity of the Washington DC metro area that we live in.

The Irene Abdou Photography "50 Over 50 & Fabulous" experience is an indulgent, pampering, exciting adventure. What could be better than a photography experience custom-tailored for you and focused on you!

Think about how you would like to be captured... how you want to be portrayed. What message do you want your legacy to convey? What I am most excited about with this project is the opportunity to take the everyday woman and give her an unforgettable, transformational, celebrity-style, magazine photography experience.

This is about so much more than just "taking pretty pictures." Our hope is that your participation will lead to a reconnection with yourself so that you see your beauty & spirit the way the ones who love you see you.

See yourself the way your loved ones see you.
