Embracing Beauty at 65

Sharon didn't let the death of her husband stop her from embracing who she is now or having fun. She's turning 66 soon and remembered how fun it was to do Glamour Shots. "I did Glamour Shots once and absolutely loved it!! I love being pampered and photographed professionally."

Sharon gave Sarah two of her images from Glamour Shots. They are displayed here. She has dramatic makeup and soft focus on the faces.

What motivated you to join the 40 over 40 project?


I loved the photos I saw of older women!

Sharon crouches in front of the camera while holding her leather jacket's collar. Her nails are platinum and she is wearing aviator sunglasses. She has white short hair and a closed but content smile. There are blurry lights behind her. It looks like she is in a dark parking lot at night.

What's the best part of being over 40?


Doing whatever I want, whenever I want.

Sharon has lacy blue dress and smiles with pearl earrings and a necklace. She is in front of a blue ocean. Her fingernails are painted platinum.

If you could give your younger self advice, what would you say?


Don't believe everything you're told. Use your head and not your heart. Make good choices.

Sharon leans on couch and smiles. She has white hair, a white shirt and blue turquoise jewelry and blue jeans.

How did the photoshoot impact you?


It made me feel like getting older was not the worse thing in the world. Everyone who has seen my photos just loves them. I've even been referred to as "Hollywood"! Lol!

Would you like to share anything to help others?


Embrace with grace! That's my new tag line. Embrace the elegance you have with getting older.
