The participation fee is $395. The fee not only holds your date and allows us to book in the hair and makeup artist for your shoot, it also covers the consultation, photoshoot, one gorgeous matted print of your choice and inclusion the 40 Over 40 Portrait Exhibition.
Absolutely! When you see the stunning images we have created for you, you'll mostly likely want them all! Extra photographs (including the digital and 5x7 print on 8x10 mat) are $250 each, but the more you buy, the more you save. You can save by purchasing collections. The more you buy, the cost goes down. Our packages with 6 images start at $1200 + tax and go up from there. We do take credit cards and offer payment plans as well.
My portrait studio is in downtown Biddeford in the beautiful and historic Pepperell Mill.
We have appointments available for shoots on Tuesdays and Fridays and one Saturday a month. Availability is first come first served. On your phone chat with Kayte, she will share next available dates and make sure to find an opening that works for you.
One of the most exciting parts of this project is to celebrate all 40 of our participants and share your images and stories with the community. There will also be a final celebration featuring all 40 women's portraits on display once this project is complete. Our venue will be announced as we get closer.
I will be 45 this year, and I can relate with all my 40+ sisters of the feelings we have about aging and how we are underrepresented in the media. There's no expiration date on being a fabulous, happy, fulfilled, and vibrant woman. You inspire me. Your story inspires me. You show me and our society the truth-- that a woman just gets better with time, like a fine wine! I am a huge believer in women's empowerment. There aren't enough platforms for women over 40 to share their story and their beauty.
"Photogenic" is not something you are...or not! It's my job as the photographer to make you look and feel amazing. And lucky for you I am a trained master at making women of all ages, shapes and sizes look amazing in photographs.
You can wear up to 5 different outfits in your photoshoot. We have a collection of over 30 dresses and gowns for you to play DRESS UP! Or, you can be casual in jeans and a black or white shirt. You can wear a sun dress. You can wear a fancy cocktail dress or jumpsuit. You can wear yoga clothes. You could even wear lingerie or your birthday suit. There's no rules. This is up to you! I want to photograph you based on YOUR UNIQUE VISION.
Certainly! You can definitely include loved ones in your shoot! Extra hair and make up is $150 per person (if needed). Part of your story is the people (and furry pets) you love. So if you want to include your loved ones, the more the merrier. And you also have total permission to make this photoshoot just about YOU!
Yes! I would love to also have your friends be a part of this project! Please spread the word.
I totally understand that life happens! I do book in my hair & makeup artist's time to be at your photoshoot. Therefore, you are allowed one reschedule more than 7 days out from the shoot at no charge. If we have less than 7 days notice (or this is the second time you need to reschedule) we do charge a $100 rescheduling fee.
We aren't "choosing" anyone. Every woman's story is inspiring. Every woman is beautiful. So we aren't going to exclude anyone who wants to be involved. Basically, this project is first come, first served. If you are willing to connect with Kayte for a "get to know you" call, pay your $395 participation fee, book your date, and are over 40 (or turning 40 this year) you can be a part of the shoot! The other limit is that we only have 40 spots available. Once we hit 40 women, we will create a waitlist of interested women
