Louise--103 years young

January 04, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

​I first learned about Louise through Facebook, and knew that, given the chance, I HAD to photograph her. A friend of mine from school, Staci, always talked about her 103-year old grandmother, Louise, with such reverence and love--not hard to see why when I found out what a spitfire she was and that 103 years had certainly not put a dent in her energy or love of life, her family and her friends. In between shots Louise shared little tidbits about her life with me--she had won an award for one of the oldest working people in Illinois a couple of years back, had worked in a sewing factory for 60+ years (and each year still meets up with the some of the ladies she used to work with) and every two months or so drives from Oklahoma to Illinois to visit her family and friends.
