I’ve shot many lawyers in my time (lol!) and they’ve all been memorable but I can honestly say that Louise stands out! Remember LA Law? The TV series from back in the 80’s, or was it 90’s? I digress, (and I’m showing my age). The picture was painted that all lawyers are smart tenacious and gorgeous. Based on the time that I spent with Louise in the studio, she’s all three of those things. 
Louise is a woman who knows what she wants and she makes it happen. This was evident not only during her occupation of the makeup chair and then during the actual shoot, but also from her story of how she came to be a lawyer. This  dynamic woman is doing us girls proud by showing up confidently for herself and the people she she represents. Find out more about Louise’s journey and the positive  impact she’s having on the world…

And check out the behind-the-scenes video of her photo shoot session!
