I wholly recommend you put yourself in Vilija's hands for a professional and enjoyable experience and pictures you will treasure, share and be proud of. I went into the shoot somewhat nervous but Vilija was so kind, supportive, efficient and focused that I soon relaxed and had a blast! It was tremendous fun using items from Vilija's fabulous wardrobe and accessories and I felt empowered to try wearing things out of my normal 'comfort zone'. Thank you Vilija for a morning I will never forget and pictures I will treasure forever x.


40 over 40! Fantastic experince definately worth doing. Vilija had everything covered. Make-up and hair by Saira was on point. The fabulous outfits and jewellery chosen by Vilija matched my personality. Had such a great day from start to end, creating memories with my best friend J and to top it all off our photos are amazing. Thankyou so much!​

I had a photoshoot with Vilija which included the make up and dress up as a package just a few months ago. The experience was so good, Vilija puts you at ease and the process itself it was not stressfull at all. I felt as if I spent the day somewhere in another world, enjoying myself. The photos looked like out of this world! Trully you, but soo beautiful, one can never imagine. I would highly recommend Vilija for all women, especially if you are somehow anxious about going somewhere for a personal photoshoot, but really desire to have one.

 Why I am passionate about this project?

I am 39 and I love to look to the women a couple steps ahead of me in life who are absolutely rocking it. My mum, my sister, my family women and any women over 40+. You inspire me. Your story inspires me. You show us the truth - that a woman just gets better with time, like a fine wine -  and not opposite, as we have been told in the society. 

 I am a huge believer in women's empowerment. And, I know that if I am inspired by women of all ages, others will be as well. But there aren't many platforms for women over 40 to share their story and their beauty. That's why I created this project. I am intend to disrupt & transform the way we are viewed (or forgotten) by the media and society by putting out beautiful, images and real stories of ourselves.

Who can participate in this project?

This portrait experience is open to all women aged 39+ and above, regardless of their shape, size, or background.

I have captured the beauty of women from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. This is a personalized and luxurious adventure that is all about you. I am passionate about creating unforgettable photoshoot experiences for every woman, capturing their legacy and memories in the way they desire.
