I had the pleasure to meet the very talented actress Chriselle Almeida last year at the dog park. Yes, dogs are a great conversation starter! 🙂
While the dogs where busy playing we started to chat and soon discovered that we had to work together. I was excited when she asked me to take some headshots for her portfolio. I never did head shots for an actress before and Chriselle was so kind and explained to me what she needed and how portfolios for actors work. As an actress the posing came so naturally and the facial expressions changed from second to second. I had a blast working with Chriselle!
We took the Outdoor ones in the place we met first: the dogpark. The Indoor ones are not made in a Studio, well not a Photo Studio. We took those in a Fitness Studio she worked at. Luckily there was amazing light!
She used to work in New York City but relocated to LA. Unfortunately I don’t get to see her anymore but things over there are going great and I was thrilled when I heard that she got a speaking roll on the TV show The Big Bang Theory.
You can see the episode here. I’m very happy for Chriselle! She is such a sweet person and awesome actress and I hope that all her dreams come true!
