The best way of facing age is to embrace it with grace and a big smile

“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source you will truly have defeated age.” -Sophia Loren-

I don’t know about you, but when I see someone radiate life I don’t ever think of age.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite: age and wrinkles are the very last thing on my mind. My mind zooms in on the energy I feel, the colours I see, the trust, complicity and wisdom that come alive. A deep feeling of warmth and respect for the person ignite; and this whether I have my camera with me or not.

Not so long ago, I had the honour to witness first hand just how wonderful it is, in the face of age and beauty, to keep pressing the trigger with fresh eyes and the same warm open heart.

This very special lady, who has embraced her whole life with a stunning smile, filled the studio with spirit, vitality and grace.

Laughter could be heard for miles.

The buzz was contagious and sensational.

The images: brilliant.

I knew I had witnessed my life #goal
