Vote for your favorite headshot, please!  I am so bad at having my picture taken.  I squirm under the direct gaze of a camera, but my friend Ellen did a wonderful job with such a difficult subject.

Time crunch, people!  I have an audition on Thursday and Ellen has to polish up one of these for me before then.

#1, but they all look good.

Susan said...

I vote for #16. There are others I actually like better as a photo of Emilia, but for the purpose of an audition headshot, I think this one says the right things. #1 is my second choice for these purposes.

A Relayer's Words said...

you look beautiful in all of them. My vote 16.

Linnea said...

I also like 1 and 16, but I am not a head shot person. :-)

Lara Mackelberry said...

I think you look youngest in 11 and 12 if that matters for the part. I like 16 the most overall. You are so pretty! (and no, you don't look old in any of them, I'm just saying if it matters-like you are playing a teen or something!) Good luck! I mean, break a leg!

Beth said...

First I was going to say #1, but then I saw #16. My vote is for #16. Gorgeous!

Heather Snediker-Morscheck said...

Yeah, I am with the group, I had a whole list of pros and cons of various shots. Then I saw 16. Go with 16.

Abby said...

I like 10 and 12. :) What are you auditioning for?

Mark, Stacy, & Jack said...

1 or 11 are my favs

Emilia said...

Thanks for the feedback and the kind words, everyone.

Lara, that might be why i liked 11 so much. ;) Although a fb friend pointed out that it was more of an author photo than a theater photo and I may be inclined to agree with him on that.

Abby, for The Mikado. Just a chorus bit, and my performance resume is a bit lacking this century, but I figure it's good to try anyway.

hi, Stacy! I met your cousin last night at a Stake Choir rehearsal! It was fun to be able to ask about you guys. Glad to hear things seem to be going well!

Eva said...

I like 13 and 15.
16 is nice but it needs to be lightened up. I'm concerned that there is not enough contrast between your skin color and the background in that one.
You look gorgeous!!!

Jen said...

I like #10.... Apparently I'm in the minority. I think you look nice and bright and happy there.

I guess 16 is good too, but it's very underexposed and lacks contrast... If she's still going to spiff it up though that can be fixed.

I Dunno? said...

I vote 16.. It's the best! I promise! ;)

Jenn said...

1, 2, 10, 15, 16 - and all the ones in between - you look AWESOME my friend! Lots of luck on your audition! Sending lots of love your way!

Here's my vote - 16, 10 then 15.

I do love #16. But I love seeing your pretty smile!

Emilia said...

Aprille, but you get to see my happy smiling face every time you tell us it's time to do another plank! ;)


To everyone: Ellen lightened up 16 for me and we are printing both it and 15, so once i have them in hand, i'll make my final decision. Seriously, thank you so much for the input. It really helped.

Anne Marie said...

I'm a little late to the party, here! You look absolutely gorgeous, Emilia. You can't lose with any of them. Wishing you well, friend.

Donna said...

I know it's too late now, but my favorites are 2 and 3. They all look really nice though. I love your hair.
Good luck!
