Been there, done that
I was pretty excited when Zontriná contacted me about headshots for her daughter, Courtlyn. I’ve dabbled in headshots before, but being mainly a wedding photographer, I knew I needed to research. I. Learned. SO. Much!
Depending on what you’re looking to get into (or put your kids into) casting agents are looking for natural shots, especially when kids are involved. Gone are the days of forcing your kids into clothes they’re obviously uncomfortable in and settings they’re sure to despise.
Casting agents want personality. They want kids to be happy, and in their element in front of the camera.
Y’all… If you haven’t seen Courtlyn yet, you’re sure to soon.
From the second she stood in front of my camera, to the end of the session, she seemed to be a pro. Mom says this is her first time… Blows my mind!!
She’s 3 years old, y’all!
Courtlyn is in swimming and she boxes. She’s also super into Kindergarten right now, and especially loves math. She’s brilliant!
After playing in the field some and then exploring on the bridge, I set up my studio lighting equipment while Courtlyn changed her clothes.
I think she’s smitten with her daddy… She really enjoyed making him laugh.
You’ve got to be changed forever after seeing these. Doesn’t she melt your heart?!
