A lawyer by training and a creative at her core, Kira departed from traditional expectations of achievement in the legal profession and converged into a new but familiar arena, Life Imaging. Kira’s focus is to redefine images, refine ideas, and refocus perspectives.
Kira Laws is recognized by her colleagues and peers as a coach, a counselor, a mediator, and a friend. She is an accomplished business maven as well as a celebrated culture savant. As a Master of Creative Direction with a keen editor's eye, Kira's pioneering genius placed her as an advisor and strategic partner in corporate America, the arts, entertainment, and media.
