Photographing aylin was a special experience. She was introduced to me shortly before our shoot by a common friend. A beautiful woman with great modesty. Do you know how sometimes you have an instant click with someone?

What would you say is the strangest thing about becoming an older woman?

Wow, the strangest thing? Actually it is the simple fact of feeling more beautiful. Sometimes I tell my husband “Isn’t it funny becoming more beautiful when getting older?”… his rightful answer is “ Isn’t it the fact you finally start to see it?”

Accepting me as I am, my own beauty and almost reaching the state of truly not giving a fuck is pretty strange to me…never would I have imagined I might reach it one day.

What Do You Do for Work?

I love to guide people into a better state of mind, like to guide them towards their dreams, make them enter their true core.

What do you do for play?

I take life all in!! I love to sing, dance, write, read and act crazy now and then!

What’s your fantasy version of your older self? 

Being a distinguished lady living in a huge castle throwing party’s, together with my hubby and sweet daughter.

All for making people becoming their true version and making them feel they are worthy beyond everything!

What’s your guilty pleasure? 

Guilty? I never feel guilty about my pleasures!

What are you Most Proud Of?

I’m proud of the woman I am today, the wife I am and most of all the mother I am to our beautiful daughter!

What would you tweet to your younger self?

“Hey there gorgeous, you’ve got it going for you. Step into your own light and flaunt it, flaunt it big time. Let go of what holds you back and embrace what makes you grow”

Strangest recent middle-of-the-night thought?

Dancing in front of a camera while pictures were made. ?

What Do you Regret Most?

Well, regret, I think we all need what we go through to get where we are right now…but if then I had to mention it would be not stepping into my own power sooner.

If You Had a Warning Label, What Would It Be?

“Passionate love guaranteed, be aware, you might get burned.”

How old are you?
