The 50/50 Project 2021

The women of the 50/50 Project 2021-22

The 50/50 Project at Franklin Photography Studios originated in December of 2019, and was intended to be a one time project where photographer Shelley Franklin would photograph 50 women over the age of fifty before she herself turned fifty. She would spend the year before her birthday surrounded by these women and hear their stories, learn about their life's challenge, help them celebrate who they are today and show them, (and the world) that beauty doesn't have an expiration date.

Despite shut downs and the pandemic, Shelley was able to complete the 2020 project. It was featured on News Channel 3, Good Morning Arizona which led to many more women contacting the studio wanting to be part of a project like this. It was then Shelley realized the need for women in this age bracket to be seen, heard and photographed was a need much larger than a one time project. The second round began in April of 2021. These are the gorgeous women of The 50/50 Project 21/22!

When something sets your heart and soul on fire and empowers and lifts other women, there is no reason to limit it. To be part of the next project email:

"It's amazing the things we learned from these photo shoots. The messages I received from so many women were unbelievable. Not only do so many think their photo shoot was a powerful experience, but empowering and fun. If I can have this same impact and provide this experience for more women, I absolutely would love to." -Shelley Franklin
