See what women have said about their portrait experiences:

40 ove 40 portrait photoshoot at vilija skubute studio, manchester, uk

Having never experienced a photoshoot before, I decided to try something completely new for me. I am so happy to have been given this opportunity as being in the very capable, skilled hands of Vilija, it became a super fun experience, as I was thrilled with my transformation. It enabled me to feel far more confident within myself during the session. I would therefore, highly recommend the lovely Vilija for her expertise in creating very special, artistic and expressive photographs.

                                            - Christine -

I recently did a photo shoot at Vilija's studio. What a wonderful day it was. Vilija is lovely, as is her friend Saira who did my hair and make up. They made me feel relaxed while we chatted about how I wanted the shoot to go. Vilija helped me with the outfits, and added some of her own clothes, as she guided me through the shoot.

It was a really lovely experience, which I would certainly recommend to anyone.

                                            - Jackie -

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.  

JUST AMAZING!

             - Laura -

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.

Vilija is a lovely photographer who has the skill to put you at ease in front of the camera and I was totally transformed from farmer to model. Highly recommended.

MORE ABOUT THE 40 OVER 40
EXPERIENCE FOR 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s+

There has never been a better time in history to be a woman over 40!

      Why I am passionate about this project?

I am 37 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 IS INVITED?

All women age 40, 50, 60, 70+ are invited. I have photographed stunning women of different shapes and sizes; from different backgrounds and with different views of life.

My passion is to take images for any woman, no matter her shape, age, background and give her an unforgettable photoshoot experience.
