The Confident Woman Series
Join the 4th annual celebration of women in their 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s+
Join us on a mission to shine light on the accomplishment and beauty of 50 amazing women over 40 —like you — all around Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. It’s your time to be celebrated, to honour your life journey and story, and see yourself in a new light. Because you are powerful, resilient and unstoppable – you deserve to see yourself as just that.
we are celebrating 50 fabulous40plus women this year. how would you like to be one of them?
Much of the world has yet to notice the grace and strength of a woman over forty. But we do. We see your beauty, your achievements and celebrate your resilience every day. Your amazing story through life’s journeys, your kindness and deep love for others. And in the rarest of moments, we catch a glimpse of that desire to fall in love with yourself again and see yourself how others see you.
Who are you? What brings you joy? How do you want the world to see you in this glorious season of life? The answers are what makes you beautiful, and it’s how your loved ones see you.
YOU’RE PROBABLY ASKING “WHY SHOULD I EVEN DO THIS?”
It’s about so much more than just “taking pretty pictures.” My hope is for you to truly reconnect with yourself and see your beauty the way others already see you. Show that feminine strength and beauty only blossoms with age. Tell your story about what it means to be a woman who is advancing in age, in today’s world.

What other Fabulous40plus women are saying…
Caroline let me through every single phase of the preparation as if I was the only person she needed to spend time with. I never felt rushed, alone, or overwhelmed. The information that was shared with me about the shoot was incredibly helpful and true to what the experience was.
The day of the shoot was easy. Much easier than I thought it would be. Getting my hair and makeup done was a treat that I recommend to everyone. It was the perfect way to get me in the right frame of mind for the shoot. Caroline’s studio is bright and colourful, just like her photos. The poses were sometimes challenging but Caroline was so patient and showed me everything to change and do. PLUS she encouraged me to have fun. And I did! I felt so comfortable posing that the time flew by! I couldn’t believe when it was over. I wanted to keep going and do more and more and more!
Once I saw the final product, I was not disappointed. Caroline has an incredible eye for composition and colour. My portraits are something I will cherish forever. I can’t believe its me!
If you have the opportunity to do a shoot with Caroline, take it! You won’t be sorry.
