Women's History Month All Year Round, Author Portraits, Featuring Liz Lawson

Interviews and features for Women’s History Month this year and thought during that time, this should last all year, every day, every month…is Women’s History time. These ladies have been my clients and inspired me both personally and professionally. I love featuring female Creatives, Entrepreneurs, and Authors on my blog.

I’m including interviews and lovely photos from our photo shoots together.

Author Portraits, Kayla Cagan, Piper Perish

I just finished reading Piper Perish, written by Kayla Cagan. And I loved it! Piper Perish is a beautiful story about an artist growing up and following her dreams. Here's a quote about the book "Piper will have readers asking big questions along with her. What is love? What is friendship? What is family? What is home? And who is a person when she’s missing any one of these things?"
I had the opportunity to photograph Kayla, look how great her author portrait looks on her site:

Be sure to visit Kayla's website ( to read more about her and her work. You can also look under "books" on her site and order your copy of Piper Perish. Get busy reading Piper Perish now, because Kayla has the next book in the series coming out this fall. Art Boss is the follow up to Piper Perish and I can't wait to read it!

Her new book Art Boss is also #1 on Amazon's Young Adult Books list right now! Yay! Way to go Kayla!

If you get a chance, you must visit The Last Bookstore in Downtown Los Angeles. It is such a neat bookstore! So many fun things to see. I was there recently to attend the book launch party and book signing for Gwendolyn Womack. I was so excited to see Gwendolyn's author portrait in her new novel The Memory Painter. Here are a few favorites from the book signing and of course Gwendolyn's beautiful portrait. You can read about and order her novel The Memory Painter on her website (

I love this portrait of Kelly. I thought of this image from our photo shoot when she told me about the film. I think it's perfect...
