I’ve known Nola for a few years because we went to the same law school and have a lot of mutual friends. However, she is the sweetest soul! Funny thing is her photoshoot almost didn’t happen because she was running late (Caribbean time LOL) and I had to drive to another photo shoot in NW DC right after her shoot. We made it happen though and luckily she was a breeze to pose! Keep reading to see some of the awesome shots we got in a very short window of time.
