This is Carson. He's a Seattle based actor. This is from last week and it was his first photo shoot ever. Just read this again. "The best shot you've ever taken." Not sure about that, but I think Carson did a great job.

Great shot Evan. I really like his attitude in this image. He knows he has it going on and that smirk is awesome. Ok and that hair style is pretty awesome too.

Thanks Wheaton! I appreciate it. Even with a hint of smirk his lips had a bit of Pouty Mouth Syndrome. Guess that acronym is already taken. Maybe Puffy Lip Syndrome instead.

New headshot of my Mom in honor of her 60th birthday! (and yes, I got her permission to tell you that) :)

What? 60 years old and barely no wrinkles?

Brianna Cottrell's picture

Yep! Everyone always thinks she's late 40s or early 50s. We've been asked if we're sisters!

An example of a new style that I have been playing with, so thought I would add it to the mix.

This is Suzanne. She is a lively 70. The lipstick is pretty much her signature look. You have to love those non-reflective glasses!

josh phillips's picture

Anonymous's picture

Try to save it as a PNG file, and upload it again..

I believe that this site is enlarging it. Try exporting it to 1000 pixels on a side and see if that helps. When I download it the size is pretty small.
