Celebrating Life Beyond 40: Introducing the 40 Over 40 Project

In a world where youth often takes center stage, it's easy to overlook the richness and depth that come with age. At Oregon Studio Group, we believe that every stage of life is worth celebrating – especially the years beyond 40. That's why we're thrilled to introduce our latest endeavor, the 40 Over 40 Project.

What is the 40 Over 40 Project?

The 40 Over 40 Project is a photography project dedicated to celebrating women in the Rogue Valley who have reached the age of 40 and beyond. It's a celebration of life's journey, that we hope will reflect stories of resilience, wisdom, and inspiration among the women in Southern Oregon. Through this project, we aim to challenge the stereotypes of aging and showcase the diverse experiences and accomplishments of those who have crossed the threshold into their fifth decade and beyond.

How Can You Get Involved?

Participating in the 40 Over 40 Project is simple. If you're a woman in the Rogue Valley area, are 40 years old or older, and have a story to share, we want to hear from you! Visit the project page and fill out the application form with your name, age, a brief bio, and a summary of why your story should be featured. Our team will carefully review each entry and ultimately select 40 individuals whose stories best represent the spirit of the project.

At the end of the project, we'll be compiling photos and information about each of these 40 women into a self-published magazine. Each participant will get a copy of the magazine for free as a "thank you" for being a part of our inspirational project.

Why Should You Participate?

There are countless reasons to participate in the 40 Over 40 Project. Firstly, it's an opportunity to celebrate yourself and your journey. Whether you've achieved career success, overcome challenges, or made a difference in your community, your story deserves to be celebrated and shared throughout our Southern Oregon community.

Participating in the 40 Over 40 Project also allows you to inspire others. Your story has the power to uplift and motivate other women who may be navigating similar experiences or facing similar challenges. By sharing your journey, you can provide hope and encouragement to others on their own paths.

Additionally, being part of the 40 Over 40 Project means you'll be treating yourself to a luxury fashion photoshoot! Professional hair and makeup will be included during your photo session, and we'll help to pose you and create stunning photographs for you and your loved ones to cherish.

You'll also be given access to our wardrobe collection of beautiful gowns, jewelry, and accessories so you can feel like the most glamorous version of yourself during your photography session.

After your photoshoot, you'll be invited back for a special photo reveal session where you'll be able to choose your favorite photograph (an 8x10 print, matted and ready to frame) as a reminder of your experience and your journey.
