Please just let me sing the praises of Xanthe Elbrick for a while

Don't know how she does it, but Xanthe Elbrick magically siphons all the self-conscious awkwardness out of taking headshots and makes it pure delight. [Insert every praise imaginable here: fun, relaxing, beyond skillful....] If you need pictures of any sort, I can't recommend her emphatically enough. There. Glad to get that off my chest.
