ARE YOU A WOMAN WHO IS IN YOUR 40s, 50s, or 60s +? THIS IS FOR YOU!

40 over 40

project

I am looking for 40 amazing women in their 40s, 50s, 60s and up, for a one of a kind empowering experience, celebrating your life and your story.

Photography is my passion. There is no greater joy than showing women a portrait of themselves, that takes their breath away and brings tears in their eyes.
I recently turned 46 and it will be an honor for me to show other women like me their beauty - for themselves and for the world.
We are too important not to be heard, and too beautiful not to be celebrated. 
It’s time to start a conversation about the beauty of aging, change the way the world and media define it, and to embrace the freedom and confidence about finally being comfortable in our own skin.
Join me on this adventure of being 40 and over, and fabulous.
The project will culminate in a gallery-style exhibition and celebration. 
Find out more below.

A photo session experience culminating in an exhibition and celebration of women and their stories.

We will discuss all things regarding your photo session including wardrobe and all the details you need to know before the big day!

HOW IT WORKS

why over 40, why me and why now?

Many women find themselves sacrificing so much for their significant others, their children and their careers, that by the time 40 hits, they haven't done anything for themselves in years. But also, by the time women get to their 40s, they've hopefully given up the notion that happiness exists within a certain shape or size.
It is time to celebrate YOU, the way you are, because you deserve it.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE PROJECT?

My goal is to photograph a wide variety of women, of all shapes and sizes. Women with different tastes, of different backgrounds and different views of life. Women with one thing in common: they want to feel and look beautiful.

The photo session with Roza Sampolinska is an empowering and fun experience, custom tailored and focused on YOU.


Think about how would you like to be photographed. My greatest passion is to take an every-day woman and give her an unforgettable celebrity-style, magazine photo session experience.
It's so much more than just "taking pretty pictures." It's an adventure, through which I hope you can truly reconnect with yourself, see your beauty and strength the way others already see.

My experience in my long marriage left me feeling uncertain about my feminine side. Those years left me hiding my body, covering up with clothes, never even looking at myself naked. Then while going through my divorce a friend showed me a boudoir shot taken by Roza. I was incredibly impressed. The quality of that photo had a huge impact on me. It was somehow therapeutic to even think of myself looking like that.
I finally tracked down the photographer in the Newburyport area and called her. From the moment we first spoke I knew I was making the right decision. Roza made me feel comfortable sharing my personal feelings on why having boudoir shots of myself was so important to me. Even the call was empowering.
Working with Roza the day of my photo shoot was pure photo therapy. I'd never posed for a professional photographer before. I didn't know how I would 'be' in front of the camera. But the day ended up being one I will always remember. We talked, laughed, and I felt magnificent. It was a beautiful experience.
Then came the day of the reveal. When I first saw my photos I cried like a baby. I never saw myself like that. I was in awe. I still am.
Roza captured beauty in every shot. It still amazes me every time I look at the photos. Roza and her incredible talent behind the lens captured the me I never knew. And the me I lost over the years. The experience was magical. Roza truly is the camera doctor!
Thank you Roza!

I can't say enough about how great Roza is! i did a glamour session with Roza skills at creating unique and beautiful photos are only matched by her ability to understand her clients. Roza will go out of her way to get to know her clients and what they're looking for, and we really appreciated that. She took the time to listen , understand my personality and then transform those characteristics into her beautiful photos. 
I don't know how did i get so lucky to be photographed by such an amazingly talented photographer i was absolutely amazed by the results especially that as a photographer i never stood in front of the camera before ! She was very patient , understanding , fun, dedicated, and professional

She did my hair and there was another girl who did my make up. It was great girl time laughing and talking while we got ready. When it was time for the shoot she made me so comfortable. I had a blast. I had never done a boudoir shoot, but knowing it was just me and her i was ok with it . Her work was absolutely stunning and so professional! I bought the biggest package she offered because i was so in love with her work. If ypur looking for someone , fun , professional, nice , kind , and does exceptional work , roza is the person for you ! I will definitely be booking another shoot with her for my children !

My good friend shared with me beautiful photos /portrait she found on internet. It was Roza Sampolinska photography work and I did not wait long to schedule my glamour session. Roza made a wonderful atmosphere and made me feel so special and relax that I quickly forgot about camera and any stress.

Congrats, Roza, for paying so much attention to details and making this experience unforgettable, and not just a photo shoot. 
If you are looking for a high end photographer, you have come to the right place. 
Roza, thank you for making my experience so beautiful. I will definitely be coming back!

Roza is so informative and helpful! She made me feel very comfortable during the shoot and made me feel like a movie star. I did not know I had it in me to produce such great pictures! It took less than 2 weeks to see my pictures. During the Reveal & Order Session, I was so overwhelmed! All the pictures came out so nicely and it was a very tough choice to choose which ones I wanted! I did not expect to have such nice photos. Roza informed me about her pricing and how we can work things out. She is very helpful and is there to support! She understands that this is an investment. I recommend going to her for all your photography needs. Her work is exceptional.

Portraiture at the highest artistic level. Roza is professional and personable, making the whole experience a memorable one. She creates legacy portraits using her signature film noir style, reminiscing of only the best magazines. If you want to feel like a celebrity for a day, that's the place. I first met Roza when I rented her studio for a project I was doing for my own business. After seeing her work I hired her to take portraits of my wife for her birthday, and these turned out to be the most beautiful and timeless images we could hope for. We're already planning a family shoot this summer. Highly recommend!

Jeff L.

I am so grateful that I was referred to Roza! I first met her for my glamor portrait session. The results were so amazing we did not have any doubts who should be our wedding photographer. The detail and quality of her work is impeccable! She has left us with such a detailed storybook of our wedding day. I love my pictures - I can't stop looking at them! Thank you Roza for paying so much attention to all of those little things that are so important and meaningful to us! You truly caught the emotions of that day, and I am so excited about that! I will absolutely recommend you to all of my friends!

I had an amazing experience. Roza is very professional and I love the final result.
