Welcome to the Revolution
Calling All Women 40 & Wiser to be part of something exciting, fun & important!
A luxury photoshoot experience culminating in a one-of-a-kind exhibit and magazine featuring you.
Celebrate the strength, wisdom and beauty of women over 40.
I'm Marjorie Raggo, a portrait photographer based out of Randolph, NJ, and I'm searching for 40 women over the age of 40 who would like to empower themselves through an exceptional photoshoot experience. I'm turning 60 this year, and my fifties have been my best years. It all started with a self-portrait I took on my 50th birthday. That picture changed how I felt about turning 50. It empowered me to take the big 5-0 on! I decided I wanted to make other women feel the same way.
For the past 10 years, I've done just that with my signature G.L.A.M. Portrait sessions.
With The 40 Over 40 Revolution campaign, I want to start the conversation around the beauty of aging and change the way the world sees and hears us. I want to show a side of us no one expects to see.
We are sensual, desirable, and vibrant beings. I want to showcase your beauty even if you haven't seen it with your own eyes or felt it in your soul. I want to tell your stories and change how we are perceived.
Join me in this Revolution of wise, and brave women who will be stepping outside of their comfort zone for a cause.
I'll provide the necessary ammunition to make you see yourself in a whole new light.

WHAT DOES IT COST?

THE 40 OVER 40 EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
A pre-session phone consultation.
We will discuss all the details involved with your session, including wardrobe, hair & makeup, what to bring, how to prepare and everything else you'll need to know about your special day!
Professional Hair & Makeup
On the morning of your photoshoot, you'll be introduced to our GLAM Squad extraordinaire. We'll consult with you on how you wish to wear your hair and makeup. If you'd like to do something outside of your comfort zone, we'll be happy to give you the red carpet treatment!
Wardrobe Fitting Appointment
A fitting appointment will be scheduled in the days leading up to your photoshoot. This will allow you to try on our studio wardrobe and mix & match with anything you'd like to bring from home. We want you to feel confident with your wardrobe choices and look forward to a stress-free day of pampering! Studio wardrobes range in a variety of sizes.
Full Service Session

You're in good hands! I'll be directing you every step of the way, so you won't need to worry about a thing.
Our job is to make you feel comfortable and enjoy the experience. I'll even serve you Mimosas in between looks. You have entrusted yourself to me, and no detail is too small to make this a perfect day for you.

"My Photoshoot was amazing. It has empowered me more than I could have imagined. I wanted to project the beauty of being over forty, or fifty, or in my case, sixty. This experience has catapulted me into other levels. Because we are over a certain age, we are not old, we are just beginning. I'm having the time of my life."
