Make your 40th and 50th birthdays an occasion for a photoshoot!
Over 40s a Photography campaign for people over the age of 40 who are embracing their gifts | By London Portrait Photographer | Laura Shimili Mears |
What if reaching a milestone is an opportunity to celebrate? And the more years we add to our life, the more powerful (in our own terms) we become?
Even if you don’t feel the need to change you can still enjoy the opportunity to be on the cover… of the magazine of your life.
Turning 40 and 50 are milestones that are worth celebrating.
What if you chose to take your seat in the spotlight and tell your story? A milestone birthday photoshoot is a great way to do just that.
“Laura made me feel incredibly comfortable from the moment I met her. She is a fabulously talented photographer. I absolutely loved my images. She also helped to manage my anxiety and put me at ease. Truly a flawless experience; thank you so much Laura!” Margaret Reiser, Sage Consulting.
“That is a super power”
“Laura makes having your pictures taken feel much less of a chore. She also provides great photos. For those of us who do not consider ourselves photogenic, that’s a super power.” Jodie Greer.

What it is included and what happens during each of the steps.
Pre-shoot Zoom consultation
During this session, we will design your photoshoot.
We will discuss the details, looks, outfits to bring on the day.
Bespoke photoshoot session
The photoshoot will take place in my studio, in Tooting Bec, and I will photograph you in up to 5 looks on the day.
It is my job to be certain you are 100% comfortable with how you sit, stand and pose and the looks you are going for, so that you can truly enjoy every moment of the experience.
Professional makeup | Styling and wardrobe
We will start the morning of your shoot with one of our professional makeup artists. She will give you professional makeup (included in the service fee) that will help you relax. We want you to feel and look great. The make-up artist will also be on hand to help you choose your first outfit choice for the shoot.
Print and digital images
Included in the session fee are two (2) digital images of your choice and 2, 8×10 print matted and ready to frame.
After the photoshoot, we will arrange for a Zoom session to view all your beautiful portraits.
You will be able to choose your 2 images that are included and there will be an opportunity to select and purchase more images.
There is no pressure or obligation to purchase additional images however, be prepared to love all of them.
Collections start from £300 for 3 professionally edited portraits and go up from there.
At the conclusion of the over 40 project there will be a gallery night exhibition with images of everyone displayed.
To support the gallery night, I want you to bring your friends and come together to celebrate everyone that has participated in the project.
Every participant will also be included in the ‘Incredible People, Step Into Your Power” campaign magazine with their personal feature.
“I simply want the world to know”
“I want to share with the world that my 40s have been the best phase of my life!
I am at a state of peace with myself and I embrace my life and my age as a gift to be enjoyed.
Don’t be afraid, 40s are truly a good place to be!” Anu London.

FAQs about the campaign and photoshoot
I have put together the answers to some frequently asked questions about the campaign, read them below.
“I bought a over 40 package as a gift for my brothers 40th birthday after seeing an offer for it on social media. He has been away from the UK for a number of years and returned for a new job, this I thought definitely warranted a fresh new professional look to celebrate the occasion. The feedback I received from my brother was brilliant, he absolutely loved Laura’s approach. She helped to loosen him up and get him relaxed which doesn’t happen often. The results were some truly brilliant looking professional photos perfect for his new senior position. I couldn’t recommend Laura any higher, she’s a great photographer and her range of packages leave for lots of variety.”
“I had a brand photoshoot with Laura and from the very beginning of our initial call she was professional.She helped and guided me to pick clothes and colors that suited me.On the actual day, she was welcoming and we had so much fun taking those gorgeous, pictures. I will recommend Laura to anyone looking to have quality and professional photos taken.”
“Laura is a great photographer. I had an amazing experience having a portrait shoot. Afterwards, I had a large selection of images to choose from, including the best photo ever taken of me. Thank you Laura!”
