Nigerian luxe portrait photographer — Eleanor Goodey is back at it again. Time after time, Eleanor has lit up our Instagram feed with not only impressive photographs of her clients but also stunning shots of her gorgeous self and adorable family. 

Looking even more radiant this year, the Paris-trained portrait photographer clocked 40 and remarked:

It took me 40 years to look this good. 

We love how she’s telling a different narrative of the ageing tale. Ageing doesn’t have to be negative, it can come with positive and even more attractive changes based on better choices. Just take a look at how stunning Eleanor looks serving this tremendous self-care inspiration of the week, talk about 40 and fabulous!

Shot by her assistant Majestic Visuals, Eleanor partners again with her brilliant fashion designer and sister-in-law — Oluwakemi Goodey of Heiress Couture Nigeria for her most stunning shoot yet, featuring Kemi herself and Eleanor’s charming damsels who have both stamped indelible face cards in our memories from their viral moments in the spotlight at Mum’s studio.
