It’s hard to smile. I mean, to really smile sincerely, with your eyes and everything.

Here’s a collage of what I like to do between smiling photos to try to keep it real.  Light Monkey Photography was kind enough to send me my best “outtakes”.

Well, here it is – proof that I’m doin’ this.

I’ve talked for a long time about how “some day” I’ll start taking acting seriously and try to get out there on a professional level.

I’ve been getting coaching from the marvelous Michael Caruana and am now preparing for my next steps.

One step is to have pretty pictures taken of my head and whatnot to try to convince people that’s what I look like every day.

Thanks to Light Monkey Photography who were the creators of my iconic “Rachel Peters with a soiled forehead and raggedy old man’s hand” photo, seen here,

I now have pretty pictures of my current self:

     

  

Now the trick will be to always be this well lit and to carry interesting backdrops around with me everywhere I go.

Wish me luck!
