Louise Davis, 61

Louise Davis, 61 “I don't believe attractive means being all made up (although it can certainly help). As I've gotten older, attractive has as much to do with how you feel, how you treat others. I definitely think personal hygiene is a help but that's just a matter of being clean and feeling good about yourself.” Louise Davis was interviewed and photographed in 2022 at the age of 61 by Oregon Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the studio in Sherwood.

It's the confidence and love for others on the inside that is much more attractive.” Anastasia Lipske was photographed and interviewed in 2022 at the age of 61 by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the studio in Sherwood, Oregon.

Marie Wright, 71

I guess what is attractive to me is being happy, being physically in shape, and in good health.” Marie Wright was photographed and interviewed in 2022 at the age of 71 by Rachel Hadiashar at the portrait studio in Sherwood, Oregon.

Leea Voetberg, 63

Leea Voetberg, 63 “Yes, beauty comes from within, it makes a person beautiful on the outside. Attractive is a person with kind eyes, wrinkles, laugh lines, who is fun, good, quirky, dry, and a sense of humor - who can laugh at themselves.” Leea Voetberg was photographed in 2022 at the age of 63 by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the portrait studio in Sherwood, Oregon.

Linda Lagraff, 58

Linda Lagraff, 58 “For me personally, I think I was most attractive when I was thinner and younger. As I have gotten older and bigger, I tend to criticize myself more when I look at pictures. This isn't true of other people. Attractive is more in the way people hold themselves.” Linda Lagraff was photographed and interviewed in 2022 at the age of 58 by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the portrait studio in Sherwood, Oregon.

Michelle Mackey, 51

Michelle Mackey, 51 “I don't have to look like anyone's idea of beauty anymore. I like what I see in the mirror. Even if I do have blinders on about some of myself.” Michelle Mackey was interviewed and photographed in 2022 at the age of 51 by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the studio in Sherwood, Oregon.

Marcia Lovell, 58

Marcia Lovell, 58 “I mean, anything goes, really. Remember that old adage, you can't judge a book by its cover? It's so very very true. I don't let myself fall into that trap anymore... You never really know what's lurking below the surface until you take the time to jump in and find out. I find myself jumping in consistently now and most of the time, I don't regret it!” Marcia Lovell was photographed and interviewed in 2022 at the age of 58 by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the portrait studio in Sherwood, Oregon.
