I don’t know if I’ve said this before or not, but my writing journey is similar to my acting journey. To be honest, if I look back at my life I can see that the two “hobbies” have always been entwined in my head.
A few months ago Eric (my awesome agent) asked me to get headshots. And sadly the ones that I had done during my senior year of college were no longer going to work.
She was able to come over to my house during the 30 minutes of sun we had in a two week period (I’m not kidding, it rained for two weeks straight except when we were doing these pictures).
That first picture was actually a test shot, but we both loved it. But, me being me, I totally face planted once we walked off of my porch and into the backyard. Seriously, it was spectacular. My crutches slid out in two different directions and I fell straight out on my stomach. It was pretty awesome. I was only slightly mortified. Thankfully, Jess is a friend so we mostly just laughed about it.
My new headshots might not be as commercial as my old ones, but I love them. I love that I still get to do things like this.
