5889 “I do define attractive differently now.

Vicki Giampietro, 64

Vicki Giampietro, 64 “I've pretty much always felt that being in shape is what makes you attractive, even as I've felt that inner beauty is more important - so I've always been conflicted about this.

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.
