Let’s talk about Kid Acting Headshots

I have been photographing children for almost 9 years.  My photography business began when I started taking pictures of my kids and posting them on facebook.  There is an art to taking photograph of kids.  The trick to taking great kid acting headshots is being able to move with them.  Children are naturally full of energy and like to bounce around a lot.  My photography style is quick, efficient and fun.



“Your headshot is your calling card,” she says. “It’s what’s going to get you that first audition, that first agent, and will pull you into the business.”- Backstage

Every actor needs a headshot

Kid actor’s are no exception to this rule.   We all want success and a future in our profession.  Kid actors are no exception this!  A great headshot will get you the first audition or the first agent.  It can get you into the right places at the right time.  That is what we all striving for, right?  Kid actor headshots need to be genuine.  A real smile will make your child’s headshot jump off the page!  (That is why we like to have so much fun on our shoots! )

How to Book Your kid acting headshots

First and foremost, call me!  We can go over everything over the phone.  With so much casting done online, you will want at least 3-5 images that you can use.  This means that your child will need multiple outfits.  I want to make sure that the colors you pick out go well with your child’s skin tone and color of their eyes.  We will then decide on a couple different locations.

I live in Burbank, so I have a few spots I really like- but I am always open to finding new and interesting places.  Sometimes, headshots can be done in the comfort of your home- depending on how your child feels about meeting new people and  going to new places.  Making sure your child feels comfortable and safe is really important to us.


I look forward to hearing from you!
