“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. I want to believe that inner beauty is the most important, as well as healthy fitness (even if that doesn’t mean “thin”), but it’s something that I struggle with constantly.” Vicki Giampietro was photographed in 2022 at the age of 64 by Oregon Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the photo studio in Sherwood, Oregon.
“I have always been one who is attracted to good, kind people with good hearts. This is even more important to me now. Life is too short to be around people who are not the kindest of people.” Pam Meisinger was photographed and interviewed in 2022 at the age of 59 by Sherwood Portrait Photographer Rachel Hadiashar.
“My perception of beauty hasn’t changed much over time. I still love to see women dressed to the nines without having to throw out their body parts to attract others.” Michelle Nakoa Medeiros was interviewed and photographed in 2022 at the age of 53 by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar in the Sherwood, Oregon portrait studio.
“Beauty emerges from how I love and care for myself from the inside out. I can see that in other people and it shows in how they move through the world, how they inhabit their skin.” Chris Caldwell was interviewed and photographed in 2022 at the age of 56 by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar at the portrait studio in Sherwood, Oregon.
“Confidence looks good on me! I’m still releasing the need to prove my worth, value, and beauty.” Sarah Kearney was interviewed and photographed in 2022 at the age of 51 by Sherwood Photographer Rachel Hadiashar.
“Attractive is put together, confident, and open to new experiences.” Carol Gunn was interviewed and photographed in 2022 at age 63 at the portrait studio in Sherwood, Oregon by Photographer Rachel Hadiashar.
“Attractiveness is not so much about the outside it is more the character of an individual, the kindness that is displayed. The laughter. There are some outwardly beautiful people who are mean, nasty and unkind.” Renee Brouse was photographed in 2022 at the age of 52 by Rachel Hadiashar in Sherwood, Oregon at the Sherwood portrait studio.
