I chopped my hair off. Something I’d wanted to do for ages – years – and never had because… well I don’t really know why. I’d always been complimented on my long hair. And the last time I had a bob I was 11 and to say it was a mistake is an understatement.
But I’m not 11. And I had decided. So off I went.
I took myself to Daniel Galvin in Selfridges and was cropped to perfection by Ben (thanks Ben!)
And then, of course, I needed new headshots.
Jennie Scott is someone i’d always found myself coming back to in my photographer searches, and she miraculously had a cancellation, so I took it as fate.
She. Is. Brilliant.
And she’s also an excellent photographer.
She gets actors. Not just how to shoot us, but how to speak to us. I felt like she understood me from the inside out, and that was pretty exciting to realise.
The shoot went in a completely different direction to what I had imagined, and I can’t thank her enough. I went in with pretty set ideas about what I wanted to achieve – and we got those shots, sure – but I came away with so much more variety.
I now have a selection of portfolio shots – and the majority of Jennie’s shots I use on my IMDB.
Jennie made me feel like I could be 100% myself. And uncovered bits of me I’d forgotten, or buried, or wasn’t sure were there in the first place.
She showered the session in positivity. And is (almost!) as obsessed with dogs, as I am.
