Acting is a lifelong profession. Actors need new headshots and portraits all the time. Susan came to me because she found herself going up for more daring parts and needed a new selection of pictures to reflect this. We put her in bold colors against a pale backdrop to offset her olive skin and beautiful salt and pepper hair. Ayakem did the hair and makeup on this shoot and made Susan a beautiful canvas for casting directors to see her full potential.
Maybe Hollywood is changing. Maybe there's more room now for mature women - who have never had plastic surgery - to go out and make a living. Being your best creative self is what's in right now; let's hope this trend moves us toward acceptance of beauty at every age.
