Highlighting Four Beautiful Women From Our 50 Over 50 Challenge
Jun 12, 2020 | By: Misty Westebbe Photography
For 2020 we are bringing in 50 women over 50 to photograph and show their true beauty shining through their eyes, tell their story of life through images to show women that aging doesn't have to bring you down but instead can lift you!
Here is Jill’s beautiful story!
Jill has been married for 32 years and has been blessed with 4 daughters. She is a licensed insurance agent and has been in the insurance industry for 27 years.
In May of 2017, Jill was diagnosed with breast cancer, and she says it turned out to be a true blessing... ”Through my chemo treatments, I lost my hair and was faced with my own mortality. It’s been a 2 1/2 year journey since my diagnosis, and I've made so many changes during this time. I was able to look at myself in the mirror with no hair and accept myself for exactly who I am. My faith and trust in God were increased as I looked to Him each day and through each treatment. I experienced a new level of love and care from my family, friends, co-workers, and the members of my church, Remnant Fellowship. This photoshoot is a celebration of having hair again, and it’s exactly the hair that God has created for me at this time in my life. I've gained a new appreciation for life and each day.”
We asked her if she had anything to say to others about aging and this is what she had to say, ” I've embraced aging as simply a part of life, and it seems like the more I experience and learn and grow, both professionally and spiritually, the more joyful and fulfilling life is!! I'm excited about the future and can't wait to see what the next day holds.”
Alice is transitioning from a longtime corporate career to the next phase of her life, wife, mom, and friend.
We asked her if she had anything to say to others about aging and this is what she had to say, "Embrace aging. Focus on taking all the knowledge and wisdom you have accumulated and find what makes you happy."
Alice was so much fun to photograph. She was so beautiful inside and out. We had fun getting to know each other.
Kathey is a retired CPA who does all types of mortgages. She loves helping people. She has been married since 1990 to a wonderful man that is a veteran. She has a grown son and daughter and a sweet granddaughter.
We asked her if she had anything to say to others about aging and this is what she had to say, "Getting old is not for the faint of heart. We all need to help each other as we face new challenges."
Meet Lizzie and hear her story...
After being a stay at home mom of 3, I started my own business in my late 40's. Now I am a 7 figure annual earner, and have the privilege of enjoying time with our grown kids, their spouses, and our grandchildren! As my grandmother told me, the best part of life is over 40!
We asked her if she had anything to say to others about aging and this is what she had to say, "Use good skincare and KEEP MOVING!"
