40 Over 40 Women Project

Women Photography Project in Iowa

by D Portraits 



Are you a Woman Over 40?

Empowering Women Through Portraiture

40 Over 40 Women Project

is an Iowa Photography Project

by D Portraits designed to highlight

women in their 40's, 50's, 60's, 70s (& beyond!) and show the beauty, strength and wisdom of all women.

We believe Women over 40 often go unrecognized by media and advertising and we want to CHANGE that because we know how much VALUE women bring to the world. We all know that women over 40 have a lot of stuff figured out, are less stressed than 20 years ago, have more confidence and know their priorities.

Let's show the world

our value, our wisdom, and our strength! 

We want to let YOUR light shine!


Come to our beautiful studio and let us pamper you with your own specialized Portrait Shoot -


Then be featured in our

40 Over 40 Women Project Photography Exhibition by D Portaits!


We want to

celebrate you!

Empowering Women Through Portraiture

40 Over 40 Women Project is an Iowa Photography Project

designed to highlight women in their FORTIES, FIFTIES, SIXTIES, SEVENTIES, (and YES..beyond!)

and showcase the beauty, strength and wisdom of all women!

So many women struggle to see their beauty, 

whether it's their inner OR outer beauty.

We SEE your beauty, and we want to show you!

Are you a woman between the ages of 40-100+ years old?

If so, you are eligible to participate in this project! 

We know life really begins over the age of 30 or 40, and it's such a well-kept secret.

We want to celebrate you: where you've been, what you've gone through, challenges you've overcome, what your dreams and passions are, what your hobbies or interests are, the live you've lived...what makes you...YOU. 


Be bold, be courageous. Celebrate you! 

That is why we are doing this project. Join us!
