Portrait Experience for Women in their 40s, 50s and 60s

photo session 40+

Hello, my name is Marina Morgan and I am a Melbourne portrait photographer specialising in elegant feminine portrait photography for women of all ages and walks of life. I help women look and feel confident, empowered and seen.

I invite you to join me for the Libre 40@40 campaign that goes beyond simply taking beautiful photos, it’s beyond the experience of pampering and styling (even though it’s exciting too!). This campaign is a celebration of femininity, diversity, essence and beauty of a woman over 40.

My first campaign “Beneath Her Skin” culminated with the exhibition in Melbourne in September 2023. I was honoured to show women their light and depth, celebrate our talents and creativity through my photography. Women walked away empowered and seen! We raised over $5000 for Rotary Peninsula 2.0 that were donated to women and children of Ukraine bearing the impacts of war.

We are ready to do it again in 2024, but we cannot do it without YOU!!!

Being over 40 myself, with the Libre 40@40 campaign I want to honour and celebrate the spirit of all women of this transformative, a bit scary and absolutely beautiful age… You are invited!

WHY OVER 40, WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT?

Enter to be featured in this limited time campain

Somewhere in our 40-s we women begin to experience the freedom of un-becoming, aligning with our deepest values. We want see and honour ourselves for who we truly are.

With the LIBRE 40@40 we hold space for a female self-creation and celebrate the freedom of being who you choose to be as a woman. This campaign is a chronicle of our triumphs and struggles, reflecting on this transition in a woman’s life.

If you feel nervous about having your photo taken, then this experience is perfect for you! Whether you feel empowered, invisible, or somewhere in between, you are worthy of being seen in photographs that make you feel beautiful and liberated.

We invite 40 women in their 40s or close to this age, to be featured in this campaign. This is your opportunity to be seen and inspire others!

before you book your photo session

However much you spend on your portraits will be based on who you would like to be photographed with (for instance, some clients bring their daughters or mums who also requite makeup), how many photos you’d like to have, and at what size you would like them printed.

For the Libre campaign we have a solo session option where your minimum portrait investment is only $590. Our standard packages range between $1490 and $3690.

The idea of the Libre Campaign is to show that freedom to be yourself has no age, shape or social stereotype limitations. This campaign is inviting women to reconnect with themselves, stand chin up high and appreciate every dimple or other feature that you may qualify as imperfection and do it with LOVE. Because the greatest act of self love you can gift yourself, is choosing to love and accept yourself exactly as you are today. Please don’t wait till better times as time doesn’t wait for you. Join the state of the Libre NOW.

To maintain our reputation for delivering top-notch results and meet your expectations, we rely on our experienced and trusted team of professional makeup artists and hairstylists. They are well-versed in our distinctive “refined natural” style and possess the expertise needed to create outstanding photos. Nevertheless, we value your comfort, and if you prefer to do your own hair and makeup, you are welcome to do so.

When you’ve been photographed by us, we want you to see an authentic portrayal of who you are without significant alterations. If you have any apprehensions before the shoot, we’ll use poses and lighting techniques to address them. Any other adjustments per your request can be handled in post-production (scars, bruises etc).

As a photographer, I’m deeply sorry to hear about your previous experience. But we’re thrilled that you’ve chosen us! We have a reliable process that guarantees your satisfaction with your photos. Before the shoot, we hold onboarding consultations to align with you on the image style, hair, makeup and wardrobe, ensuring that we capture your vision perfectly. If you’re still unsure, check out our Testimonials page for some positive feedback from our satisfied clients.

You will see your photos right after your shoot, isn’t it exciting!

A full release is required for this campaign and some of your images will be shared publicly. We will respect the level of privacy in images that can be shared (for example, if you choose to have a boudoir style photo shoot but don’t want to share photos revealing certain parts, please let us know and we will honour this). 

As the name of this campaign suggests, it’s about freedom to be yourself. It’s about the woman, who plays by her own rules and expresses herself in a way that makes her fulfilled and liberated. The choice of the style is yours. It can be a headshots, am environmental portrait, boudoir or an art nude style – express yourself the way you feel called. You choose how you want to become visible to the world.

We understand that feeling confident in front of the camera can be tough, but rest assured, you’re not alone. Once you’ve had your hair and makeup done and experienced the fun of the photoshoot, you’ll find confidence you never knew you had. We witness it every time! Being pampered by creative professionals and indulging in the luxury experience can make all the difference.

We provide a digital, social media optimized file of every photograph you purchase. Plus, our artwork service takes the hassle out of finding a good printer and arranging printing. We offer advice on paper stocks, sizing and even create a virtual mockup of your images on a photo of an interior wall in your home. Let us help you showcase your beautiful images in the best way possible!

Typically, we begin our studio photo sessions at 10 am with a warm welcome and discussing your wardrobe and style. After this we move on to hair and makeup, ensuring you look and feel your absolute best (allow 90 minutes for styling).

Photoshoot takes around 90 minutes – ample time to experiment with 3 different looks, outfits, and poses while receiving guidance throughout.

After the photo session, you’ll have time for a quick snack followed by a photo presentation where you can see all your images and order anything you’d like to take home. Allow 30-90 minutes. This time also includes the interview.

Most photoshoots finish by 2.30 pm and it’s a day filled with pampering, radiance and joy you deserve!
