"I did a '40 and Fabulous' shoot in January 2013. This was in celebration of one of my milestone birthdays. Also, I did the shoot for my husband who shares the same birthday as I do (January 28th). I did this photo specifically for my husband, Larry, as Green Bay is his favorite football team. I am wearing his hat and shirt and my pearls." - Tanya B.

"I had this taken about seven years ago. I was 37, single and feeling insecure about my body and my love life or lack thereof. During the shoot, we didn't have any intention of doing any semi-nude photos but as a joke, I started posing like Hugh Hefner was behind the lens. I had a female photographer and I took this as a compliment that she found me to be attractive (no, neither one of us were gay). The outfit I wore was a Halloween costume for a party I was attending that night. After the shoot, I felt more confident and definitely sexier. It must have showed, as I did have a few men hit on me at the party, even one that was 10 years younger. It felt good for my self esteem to be boosted. I'll be 44 years old this year and I'm remarried now. I can't say I'd do it again, especially at my age, but I do appreciate the photo and I'm not ashamed that I did do it. My husband makes me feel sexy, secure and confident that I don't need a photo to make me feel that way now." - Kelly-Anne
"Because I'm turning 50 this year!" - Julia C.
"I did one on my wedding day while getting ready. You are supposedly in the best shape of your life on your wedding day, and people take advantage of the moment. Why not document the way you look, inside and out? I felt it was a safe enough environment to get a few shots of me before my dress went on of my favorite features, which included my legs and part of my back. When I met my husband, I was shy of my average body. But I quickly learned that he loved me for me, regardless of wrinkles, lumps, or scars. I learned to love my body as is. The pictures were for him, to show him that I have come along way in loving myself because of him." - Monika W.
