La Luz Portraits supports the Lise Watier Foundation

Over the past few years, the Lise Watier Foundation had the opportunity to collaborate with La Luz Portraits, a photography studio founded by Pascale Thérien.

Through its portraits, La Luz Portraits helps women embrace their beauty, both inside and out. The mission of the Lise Watier Foundation has touched the team, as the organization seeks to develop women’s full professional potential and build a brighter future.

In 2019, Pascale Thérien and her team photographed participants of the Let’s Start Up Program. These portraits were unveiled at the Foundation’s annual Gala and are now an integral part of the image of the Lise Watier Foundation. In 2020, new portraits of participants were added to the existing campaign faces. As usual, La Luz Portraits team was able to highlight the beauty, determination and pride of the women the Foundation supports.

Thank you, Pascale and La Luz Portraits, for supporting with conviction the Lise Watier Foundation!

” I felt exhausted, so I questioned my future. The program changed my life!  It allowed me to refocus on my needs and visualize where I wanted to go. I met women who gave me confidence and shared their knowledge to help me start my own business.

“Go ahead, believe in your dreams because anything is possible, really, ANYTHING! Never, at 60, would I have thought it was possible… But thanks to the Let’s Start Up program, I have come out of my shell; I now realize how much potential I have, and I know I will make it.
