Vanessa Madrid headshot review

Vanessa Madrid

Vanessa Madrid is a glorious mixture of grace and grit.  Originally from Chile, Vanessa’s a bilingual actor, stunt performer and voice artist whose credits include Wrath, Survival of The Fittest, Bump and After She Died.

One of the things I love about working with creative souls is the collaboration that unfolds during our session.  I try to facilitate a connection with the camera that feels intimate and authentic, so that you feel like you’re discovering a part of them through seeing their photo.  Vanessa was lovely, warm and open, and together we danced between moods and looks with fun and spontaneity.  I’m always exploring, and every photography session is an opportunity to learn something new – about my client, myself, life’s lessons.  In this session, I saw the magic that comes from stepping into the rich world of imagination with no judgement or limitations – just play.  Vanessa does so easily and effortless, it was a joy to play together.

Vanessa shared these kind words about our time together:

“Emma is a true talent! She has a wonderful way to communicate & direct the shots, but always ensuring you feel confident! I loved working with Emma & would highly recommend anyone that needs portrait shots to work with her. 

As a fellow actor, she has a great way of helping you get into character which then produces a beautiful shot, full of depth & life. Emma is a soft & kind soul, which really makes you feel comfortable to be around her & to collaborate on ideas. I am more than happy with how our two shoots have turned out & will definitely book Emma again for when I need a fresh set of shots. 

Emma is under-ratedly the best in the business for headshots.”

Enjoy this beautiful collection of moments with Vanessa Madrid,
