I am looking for 50 women to join me

in a one-of-kind experience celebrating your life and your story  


To many women over 50 feel invisible.

Yet, we are too experienced to not be heard and too beautiful not to be celebrated. 

I'm here to change that.

It’s time to start a conversation about the beauty of aging and to embrace the confidence of finally being comfortable in our own skin. Together we can change the way the world defines aging, and we can lift and empower those that are coming up behind us. Join me on this adventure to share the common bond of being 50 and over.

I will be photographing 50 women over 50 in 2021. 

You're invited to a unique magazine-style photo session, culminating in

a gallery-style exhibition and celebration of women and their stories.

How Much Does it Cost?

I am offering the 50 OVER 50 Project as a special promotional package for $399
(total value is $925).

Through the 50 OVER 50 Project We Can...

  • Celebrate that beauty doesn't diminish with age.

  • Highlight your character, wisdom and spirit.

  • Tell your story about what it means to be an older woman in today's world.

  • Celebrate your beauty and appreciate every scar, every line, and every gray hair (or not!).

Whether you feel invisible, empowered, or somewhere in between, know that you are loved and needed and your story is important!


We intend to disrupt & transform the way we are viewed (or forgotten) by the media and society by putting out beautiful, authentic images and real stories of ourselves.

This is your chance to be seen and heard!

Why Over 50, Why Me, and Why Now?

I took my portrait photography business full-time after turning 55, and I wanted to create something about women in the second half of their lives. I know how empowering it can be to see yourself in photographs and I wanted to give this very special gift to all women to enjoy.

It will be fun, fulfilling, and transformational. The REVOLUTION is within you...and I want to bring it out! Join me on a fun and incredible adventure.

Who Can Take Part In The Project?

I would love to photograph a wide variety of women 50 and over. Let’s create a tapestry of stunning images of women of different shapes and sizes; women with different tastes, from different backgrounds, and with different views of life.

The Jana Marcus Photography experience is an exciting, pampering, indulgent adventure, custom tailored and focused on YOU!

Think about how you want to be captured, what does your legacy look like? My passion is to take the every-day woman and give her an unforgettable magazine-style photoshoot experience.

It's about so much more than just "taking pretty pictures." My hope is for you to  truly reconnect with yourself, see your beauty and spirit the way others already see you.

Take a look at everything included:

1. Consultation

Complete custom photo session designed for you, including wardrobe and styling consultation.


2. Professional Makeover

Camera-ready custom make-up application by our professional on site make-up artist.

Whether glamorous or natural and refined, it's all up to you! Light hairstyling included for picture perfect results!

3. Magazine-Style Photoshoot

Covergirl for a day! You will enjoy a fully, expertly guided photoshoot.

Not feeling photogenic? Nonsense! It is not your job to be. I've got you! It is my job to connect and make you comfortable, to show you in your best light with flattering posing. Get ready to rock this!

4. The Reveal

We will schedule a time for you to come back and view your beautiful portraits in person or via a zoom meeting online, about a week later.  At that time we will review the best images from your session. You can choose your complimentary photo and if you desire more, you'll receive $100 toward an image package. But, you only purchase the images you love!

One of the cool aspects of this promotional package is you get a complimentary photo (and digital), whereas my images are usually sold separately.  If you would like to purchase more images from your shoot we have many beautiful products - from wall art to storing your new images in luxury folio boxes from Italy.


Women of Color Sponsorship

Women of Color sponsorship

My goal has always been to show a diversity of women, but I recognize that the cost may be prohibitive to some people.  I will be gifting several shoots in the new year to women of color to participate in this important project. If you are interested or know someone who is, please send an email to Jana.

Would you like to sponsor or gift someone a session? Have someone in mind?  Send me an email!
