Photo shoot : Alter Ego

Posted By Ava Gaudet on January 15th, 2013


Last night on Mike & Molly I got to play a tatted-up, pierced, bad-girl named “Raven”. Since I don’t have a single real tattoo, and the only thing I have pierced is my ears, this was really fun for me. In fact, I felt strangely comfortable like that, like somehow it suits me? So while I was all done-up in tats, I decided to take a photo shoot of my alter ego…

Special thanks to Marie Westbrook and Shutter FX Photography for doing the shoot with me!







NOIR Inspiration

Posted By Ava Gaudet on July 3rd, 2012


The other day I did a really fun photo shoot with my amazingly talented friend, Mischa. For these photos we wanted to portray the moody, stylized drama of classic Film Noir, while still keeping a slightly modern edge. I love how he played with shadows and lighting, and LOVE how these look in Black & White….so nostalgic of old-hollywood! I had a blast doing this, Thanks Mischa!!

…when someone says “No”…

Posted By Ava Gaudet on April 5th, 2012


What do you do when someone says “No” to something that you really want? How do you react?

Today I started thinking about this… as an actor and singer, rejection is so….typical. expected. par for the course. We performers deal with hearing “No” more often then not. Like, seriously, ALL the time! Sometimes it really hurts…. sometimes we just end up having a soy latte with our Besty at Starbucks and never think about it again…. but the fact is, we get said “No” to SO often that now I’m starting to wonder… is that weird? Are there other people out there who get rejected this much? Are there people out there that DON’T have to hear “No” 100 times before they hear “Yes”?

I’m guessing you can learn a lot about a person by how they react to hearing “No”  (although I hope no one is studying me, because I admit I’ve had at least a few seriously questionable reactions myself!! )  Do you get crushed? Do you feel defeated? Do you feel enraged? Defiant? Does it empower you to keep going? To pick yourself back up? To do better? To be the BEST?

As I was thinking about all of this… I saw this quote posted on Facebook:

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill

That’s the same guy who is quoted as saying this:

“Never, Never, NEVER Give Up.”

That sounds like a guy who heard the word “No” a few times.

Summer’s in the Air

Posted By Ava Gaudet on April 26th, 2011


Things are heating up here in So Cal….

ooooooooohhhhhhh I’m so EXCITED!

It’s weird how excited I still get for the summer time. I mean, it’s not like the ‘ol days when I had summer vacation from school…  and I live in LA for cryn’ out loud! The land of eternal sunshine!! (sort of, there was that one day when it snowed in Burbank this “winter”….) But none the less, I can’t wait for sunning by the pool, firing up the grill for backyard BBQs, frosty drinks with my girls on an outdoor patio somewhere, hiking, swimming, and of course, cute sundresses and sandals…ah summmmmerrrrrrrrrr……..
