Kid Headshots Los Angeles:  what to wear

one of the biggest questions we get when shooting kids headshots is what should we bring for the kid to wear?  You’re always safe with SOLID colors, but prints are totally fine if they’re not distracting.  Above, our kid actor is wearing a PRINT (flowers) and a chanbray vest (pink/white).  These could easily be distracting, but they’re not b/c they fit the character types we’re going for 🙂

Kids Headshot Photographer

Choosing a kids headshot photographer isn’t easy.  There are honestly several really talented photogs in Los Angeles that do a great job with kids.  We work to set ourselves apart by offering “real world” locations for at least your child’s Commercial Headshot – since Commercial Agents tend to love that candid, fresh, “real” look.  You’ll notice in the 2 pics above, the Theatrical Headshot is shot in our studio, whereas the Commercial shot in the braids and tee is shot just around the corner from our studio for that natural light breezy feel that’s so popular in commercials!

Wardrobe, Headshots for Kids

There is a lot of information out there on what wardrobe to bring when shooting headshots for kids – everyone has a slightly different take on things.  If y0u’re already signed with a talent agent, you should absolutely go with their preferences.  If you’re shopping reps, you’ll want to follow as many universal rules as possible.  For the most part, sticking with SOLID colors is safe.  But, just bringing a bunch of bright tees can be an oversimplification.  Make sure to bring wardrobe pieces with different “character” to them.  Example:  Solid pale beach blouse (ethereal).  Bright solid pink tee (spunky).  Faded Denim Jacket (earthy).  They’re all SOLID in color but each has it’s own vibe!

Hope this helps the next time you book a headshots for kids photoshoot!
