Mirela needed new headshots. The ones she had, she said, made her look like a villain. And she doesn’t feel like a villain. So even though we aren’t taking portraits, she wanted to show her softer side, the way she feels inside. And she hopes that will show agents and casting directors her true nature.
In all fairness, it wasn’t quite that she looked like a villain. The headshots just didn’t look like her.
The fabulous Edward Jimenez was the makeup and hair stylist on this shoot and he nailed it.
Mirela was very happy with her headshots. One message I got from her: “Thank you very much.. I am going to print my great great great headshotssss nowwww!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am very very happy!!!”
She is so sweet. Not a villain at all.
