Lucky for me I have so many amazing women friends branching out and going for new careers in their 40s. Laren Watson is one of them!
I met Laren many, many years ago when I was working as a design recruiter for Filter (see previous post regarding Kristin). I sent her to Adobe for a design job and she was a big hit which in turn me look like a good recruiter with my client!
Fast forward 15 or so years later and we ran into each other at a kid birthday party in our neighborhood. I was really happy to reconnect with her and we've been buddies ever since.
Laren's love of eating a healthy diet has made a big difference in her life. So much so that she started studying how she can help other people find the right diet for them. And now she is just about to open the doors to her own business, Eating Well : Living Well as a holistic health and nutrition counselor. I recommend you give her a call and set up an appointment before she gets too busy!
I can't believe I have written so much without mentioning anything about the images! Laren and I spent a morning in her yard/orchard/luxury hen house taking some photos and then we hit the Burien Farmer's Market for some fresh produce and flowers.
We ended our fun morning with lunch at Grand Central Bakery. Fun morning that didn't feel a bit like work! Have I mentioned I love being a photographer? I do!
Best of luck to Laren and her new venture! Check out her Facebook page to see her beautiful logo too. She still has the designer chops!
