It’s a platform where women celebrate their inner and outer beauty and continue to grow in self-awareness and sisterhood. What sets our business apart from others is that our movement focuses on mature women ages 40 years old and older. We promote empowerment and inspire the ideal that life gets better after 40 due to our life experiences, wisdom, and knowledge. We encourage our women to tap into their purpose on earth and run with it!
Skyy Wonders Photography: Skyy Wonders is a known photographer in the photography industry! Her knack for fashion and styling has garnered her opportunities to work on movie, television, and photo shoot sets. She then realized her gift in photography where she was able to catch the most candid moments of her subjects. Skyy aims to capture that pose, that look, that move, that special moment! Skyy has been shooting photography for over 11 years as a hobby, but has made it her full-time skill for over 4 years now. She is contracted with the W Hotel Downtown Atlanta where she shoots events for music artists/bands, fashion designers, artists, corporate companies, DJ’s, and much more.
Skyy believes a world without photography will be meaningless to us if there is no light and color. These open up our minds and help us express our passion. Photography is an art, but people take photographs for many reasons. Photos can also be taken to serve as evidence for how something happened. It enables the viewer to experience similar emotions and feelings the photographer had. This is the reason why our company was formed; to help us keep our memories fresh with what has happened in the past. We take photographs for various events including: Corporate and organization events, parties, marriage proposals, weddings, funerals, family and business outings, and picnics.
Skyy's motto: That special moment! You can never get that back if it's unrecorded or undocumented. Skyy is known to catch the most authentic moments of her subjects, that pose, that look, and that move.
“Your Moment Beyond The Skyy!”
THE STORY:After 40 years on this earth, I was able to overcome the effects of my negative childhood environments, adult relationships, domestic violence, divorce, and losing everything I worked so hard for after the age of 40. Concerned by the number of women I encountered who were struggling with similar issues, I wanted to create a platform that would uplift, motivate, encourage, and empower women 40 years of age and older.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:My proud moments are the birth of my son, Omari Daniel, starting 40 Plus Wonders and Skyy Wonders Photography, and touching women all over the world by sharing my life story. My life story has helped women understand their beauty and their worth, and that is ok to start all over after 40. I have been recognized for creating an annual calendar of women 40 years old and celebrating their inner and outer beauty, which women all over want to be a part of with me. I created a blog talk radio show, Unmuted: Your Voice Matters, where I allow my listeners to share their thoughts and interact with myself and my special guests.
GLOBAL FOCUS:I see 40 Plus Wonders franchising out to other major cities and countries all over the world. I see Skyy Wonders Photography partnering with major magazines and companies in the fashion and beauty industry. I’m also looking to start my own film/TV production company in order to promote positive, and healthy, TV and film programming.
OUTLOOK:I am passionate about my family, fashion, and beauty!
