Headshots for Kids
A couple weeks ago, we posted a blog on kids headshots featuring our favorites from Natalie’s shoot….but, NOW her Agency Choices have come in & these are the finished product after removing a few stray hairs & cropping for Internet Casting. Natalie came to us from a pretty big & well known commercial agency, so we knew they’d appreciate some variety. Fortunately, Natalie has a great look for camera, since she can sort of morph into so many character types within an instant. With that long vibrant red hair & piercing blue eyes, we knew we could create several options for her reps. Below are some tricks that we used to change up the images as we shot – they’re simple concepts that you see used all over film & television….and there’s no reason you can’t use them too!
Long Hair Tricks for Kids Headshots
When you have long hair to work with, remember that you have SO many options at your disposal. Notice above, the pics with straight hair tucked behind the ears….immediate “Good Kid / Teachers Pet” So simple! Then take a look at the green top images – the surfer girl waves give her that “All-American Kid” look that’s so so popular. For the blue crushed velvet top, we started with fresh curls & pulled them forward on one side to show off all of her thick amazing hair – these felt very “Period Piece” to me & obviously Natalie would be amazing cast in one of those “Sense & Sensibility” type roles 🙂 For the shots in the turquoise tee we loosened up the curls to give her a totally girly “Disney” look. For the black tank top, we brushed our fingers through the curls to make a more relaxed casual look & get a perfect serious “Theatrical” shot. These tricks work not only for kids headshots, but also for grown ups 🙂
