I’ve been a bad blogger! I’ve been busy busy doing fall portrait special sessions and totally ignored blog posting. I’ll do some catching up between sessions now.
Here is Amanda Cortes. She came out from Toronto for acting headshots. I love the beautiful, summery country girl feel of these.
She also introduced me to this sweet location (which you may recognize from my 1st trash the dress session). I discovered something working with Amanda. I absolutely love shooting actor headshots! I often coach headshot clients on taking on a state of mind – acting as themselves – to bring out natural, authentic expressions and body language. ….. add 3 times the focus – and an impressive ability to take on a state of mind briefly and persuasively …. and you have Amanda Cortes. I felt like I was taking in as much coaching as I normally give out. Bringing out the best in subsequent headshot sessions just got easier. Thank you Amanda!

Amanda is hosting The Cabaret Classic in Toronto on Saturday evening, Dec 19th. This is a fundraiser for DramaWAY ( www.dramaway.com ) . …. a formal black tie holiday cabaret night of entertainment – and the cause is a great one!
