how did you find the experience of getting your photo taken

One of the most fascinating parts of the Beautiful You Studio is that everyday we are blown away by the incredible woman who walk through our door! Meet Louise she’s awesome! Louise visited the studio for new corporate shots to use across her social media and work platforms :)  I sat down with Louise after her session and asked her a few questions :)

Q – who are you and what is your profession?
​My name is Louise Archer and  I work for Toshiba Medical Systems as Global Marketing Manager for Ultrasound, based in Nasushiobara in Japan​. I’ve spent most of my life working in clinically in Diagnostic Imaging and the last 15 years in the corporate environment with Toshiba.  I love the company I work for, amazing people, doing amazing things on a daily basis..
Living in Japan is a wonderful

​cultural experience which I am really embracing.
Q – what brought you to the studio to get new corporate images?
​A couple of reasons, firstly because of my job, people need a good photo for various events and I only had an old iPhone picture that I used, it didn’t look very professional and so I thought an update was in order.
Secondly, part of the getting “into” the culture has got me writing a blog called “Just Life (in Japan)” and also writing for the tourist website “Japan Travel” amongst other things.  ​
​I worked out I have about 10 different online photos​ representing the sites and social networks I used, so I was keen to get one great photo and use it everywhere..
Q – how did you find the experience of getting your photo taken
​I loved it, it was very casual and relaxed, having hair and makeup done all in one place made it easy.   I really loved that we used natural light for the photos…  Plus they turned out great, so I couldn’t be happier.  I’ve spent the morning changing my “profile pic” on 14 different sites :-)
The makeup was also great, I left the studio and went and got my passport photo done – first decent passport photo I have ever had !
