Whenever I try to shoot new head shots for auditions and such, I’m miserable. There’s something so stressful and unnatural about taking head shots (this coming from a blogger who photographs herself a million times a day). When Sylvia & I shot this casual look, it was for the blog and that’s it, but when I got the photos back, I thought “Man, this pic looks like a good head shot!” (referring to the first photo here) and now it is. It was a happy accident that my commercial agent is very happy with (cue Pharrell); it’s not necessarily right for all acting work but ill take it! Also, how do you like my new penny loafers? I’m obsessed! They take me back to my high school days when I used to rock them with my Catholic school uniform. (I’m old.)

    I’m obsessed with the penny loafers too! They were the first thing that I looked at (after the wonderful head shot, of course)

    Such a cute look. I love penny loafers and have for many years. Growing up on Long Island, penny loafers, boat shoes and driving loafers were a staple. At least on the north shore of Long Island. We would actually put dimes in our loafers. We thought we were so cool, looking back, we so weren’t.
    I think these head shots are great. They show how natural & playful you can be. Love them. Good luck!

  • I can totally relate to this headshot issue. One of my photographers who shoots me for my blog wants to take new headshot photos for me and I have been putting it off for months in spite of the fact that we are always shooting together for the blog. 🙂 Love that first photo and the loafers are awesome.
