Hey, mid-lifers! Looking for inspiration to make that career leap you’ve been dreaming of? Meet Toni Whitlock, a client of mine who decided to go into acting after working as a tax analyst and then an educator for many years. We chatted while I photographed her headshots and environmental portraits. Clearly, she has what it takes to succeed (and more): charisma, presence, determination and beauty. Toni, congrats on your new role as the young Nicki’s grandmother in Nicki Minaj’s upcoming television series. Toni’s handsome husband Guy Whitlock, another client, also recently returned to acting after a career as an attorney and educator. He immediately began landing principal roles. Bam! What a power couple!
