Recently my mother told me “I didn’t worry about you in
college because I knew you made GOOD DECISIONS honestly, I wanted
to feel a since of pride but I immediately remembered all the foolish decisions I’ve made.
But here is what I’m learning at this very moment. When you
make decisions sometimes it’s not an issue of making a good decision.
You need to ask yourself, Am I making a decision based on a perceived need I
For example, I can recall a time I dated someone who I knew wasn’t ‘the one’ even before I agreed to date him. But, you
know what he was. He was POSITIVE. He had dreams bigger than mine, He had a
‘can do’ attitude concerning anything. When I spoke to him about something, I
walked away inspired. Believing in myself. He believed in me. He didn’t compete
with me. And at the time he asked me ‘to go steady’ lmbo I needed that! You
see, I had been THAT for so many other people for so long, I needed someone to
be THAT for me! Or so I thought.
The guy I dated…
It's been awhile since I've shared a great headshot promo with you and this one comes in good timing. As the year comes to a close, it's a great time to refresh some of your favorite shots, to get a new look that you may be missing and also to give your team some new ammunition. Those are the exact reasons I decided to get a headshot shoot in and I'm so extremely pleased with my decision to shoot withwww.photosbyjamaal.com
First off- Look at this headshot!
Secondly- You can't fathom the professionalism that this team offers. I'm NOT easily impressed. I'm very organized and I pride myself on effective communication and efficiently using my time. This photos by Jamaal team, left me speechless.
PROS: Prior to arrival I received an email and convo about my looks, intentions for the shoot and what to bring and/or expect day of shooting. Upon arriving the full team was present, had already been briefed on our goals for the shoot and were ready to …
So Pilot season 2017 is over. As a newer actress, pilot season isn't 'for me' just yet. What I mean by that is, I use pilot season as a time to identify the appetite of the industry along with assessing my immediate and long term goals. I decided to shoot with the super talented Photos by Jamaal again. My team weren't requesting shots but I noticed a void in my tools and asked Jamaal to capture some very specific looks for me. Below are just a couple!
These shots make me so happy because they are soooo KIVA. Jamaal is so easy to shoot with, so detailed oriented that I could relax and not worry that he understood my vision yet he is so laid back that he makes the environment so easy to let go and create. Prior to this shoot I hadn't EVER used my natural curls in my head shots, I'd tried but I'd never liked the images until now. I adore these shots and so does my team.
I'm nervous to post the head shots we did with red lipstick…
