Over 50 Modeling

Published October 21, 2020 by Maryanne


October 2020, Weehawken, NJ

I was honored to work with photographer Joseph Shade of Crimrise Photography, last week. He’s an incredible photographer and we had a great time working together.

Autumn in New Jersey is absolutely amazing. It was so windy, especially by the waterfront, but as you can see in this shoot — it worked in our favor!

With this shoot, I want to encourage all women over 50 that we are still beautiful, relevant, and modern! I turned 57 on August 19 — and am proud of it!

Relaxing Afternoon in Keyport, New Jersey

Yesterday, my husband and I had very relaxing afternoon in Keyport, New Jersey.

This is one of my favorite places to go because it’s a small boro in Monmouth County that hosts great antique shops and a few good restaurants. It’s so relaxing at the waterfront too. And I must say, the people make it. I never see people texting or on cell phones. Children are well-behaved. And people actually talk to each other. It’s the kind of place where people are comfortable approaching each other to chat or just smile.

We love McDonagh’s Pub: http://www.mcdonaghs.com/

The service there is fantastic. Everyone was so attentive and great. I had a fabulous dish of sirloin tips, carmelized onions and chips with a side salad. (Eating non-organic salads on the weekend, away from home, isn’t so great — but you can dress it up nicely with lemon juice, malt vinegar and Frank’s Hot Sauce.)

It was great dining outside, taking in the hot sun, people watching and better yet — dog watching! We really saw some cuties yesterday, two beautiful dogs that appeared to be bulldogs at the restaurant. One was white and spotted. And then, by the waterfront, a teeny tiny apple-headed Chihuahua. It was so small it could have fit in the palm of my hand! Her little legs were going so fast to keep up with her master — like she was on a mission!

The song for today is David Sylvian’s “Let the Happiness In”
