Getting Old but Beautiful too

We all get old, but we all look beautiful in our own personal way. I love my grand ma. If she didn’t look old I might not love her as much as I do.

For three weeks, some of our eldest models will pose for us, and we’ll have the chance to see what happens to our bodies when we get older. Our bones, our postures, our wrinkles… all accentuating our character and history.

Hope you come and enjoy.

Please, notice, this year our last session befor xmas will be the 8th of December as this year I am going to celebrate my dad’s 70th b’thday!
