Robin Salcido

I turned 60 in 2019. I began this project to explore what aging means and how we are moving through it. I began this project to revise the negative narrative surrounding women and aging.

This is a space to share our stories and have a conversation about transitions after 50 whether it’s our bodies, a relocation, new profession or shift in our relationships. Our lives are ripe with change and new chapters.

So, let’s talk.

“We Who Are Over 50”

I spent 2019 photographing and interviewing extraordinary women over the age of 50. My goal was to give voice to the myriad ways we “crones and sages” continue to contribute to our families, communities and society. I have created a photo book complete with these portraits and an inspirational quote excerpted from each conversation. You can read all of these conversations in full here. 
The book is available for purchase and makes an excellent gift. Please use contact form for pricing inquiries, including shipping. Local orders can be picked up at the studio.

The Podcast

I launched the Women.Words.Wisdom. Podcast just shy of my 61st birthday to share more stories of women over 50.  The podcast has a series of interviews with women I consider inspirational and fascinating that I believe deserve a platform. I also read my own essays for those of you who still enjoy story time! 

The Wise Women Project

The “Wise Women Project” aims to honor and document the lives of women over 50.

In addition to Our Stories Today, I am a photographer who specializes in photographing women.

The RES Photography “Wise Women Project” is an opportunity for women over 50 who live in Boulder County to participate.

This you-focused experience is priced at $250 (valued at $750) for women who are interested in being interviewed for the Our Stories Today blog and who would love to participate in a photo shoot! Participants will receive use of all high-res images (approximately 15-20 images).

Most women arrive for our work together a little bit nervous, wondering if they are pretty enough, slim enough, interesting enough, but by the end of our work together realize that YES. Yes, they are enough. They are everything enough.

You deserve some attention.

“Exposing a vulnerable period in my life for Our Stories Today was not easy, but I was grateful that I had a way to tell my story and the responses gave me a community of compassionate voices that made me feel both empowered and less alone.”  Read here for more testimonials of other Wise Women.
