Childrens headshots that work for you

Childrens headshots have become so competitive – and for good reason.  There is more content being created around kid characters than ever before.  It’s no longer just Disney and Nickelodeon.  Now, ABC Family, The CW, AMC, and pretty much every other network, have begun featuring young actors as main cast members – and they’re doing absolutely amazing.  Having an amazing pic can get your kid into some pretty big rooms…honestly, the sky is the limit with little ones!

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 🙂

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!

Child Headshots in Los Angeles and Thousand Oaks

_B0C1547-2520x1680

 

If you are a parent with one or more children who act in Los Angeles or Thousand Oaks (or who just want to jump in for a quick shoot with their sister or brother) it’s a nice way to get a good bang for your buck by combining the shoots. Above you’ll see two siblings who ‘doubled up’ on their headshots and saved mom a lot of time. If you can find a photographer who can handle the kids, this is the best way to save yourself some time. The right photographer will know how to divide the time up evenly and allow all the children to have multiple outfit sessions (if desired) by themselves and then also include shots together as well. This way mom also gets some fun family photos for next year’s calendar!

Headshots for Teen Actors in LA & Thousand Oaks

Teen Actors Headshots in LA & Thousand Oaks

When shooting headshots for teens and young adults layers are essential. This look is more of a hipster look, you can break all the rules with accessories and hats (slouchie beanies, etc). The more layers to play with the better! Start with a jacket and a hat, shoot with and without hat, take jacket off with another layer underneath and keep working with different pairings of layers and accessories for each look to get the most out of your shoot. This way you can turn 4 looks into 18 various looks when getting Headshots for your Teen Actors in LA & Thousand Oaks. For more info visit our site, to see more work go to our Facebook Page.

Headshots for Kids and Teens

Teen Headshots LA & THousand Oaks

 

When getting headshots for your teenager, you want to make sure that you shoot both looks that work for their younger age range and their older age range.  For example, if they’re 16, they can probably still play 14 as well as even 18.  So, get some shots that look younger and some that feel a bit older and even edgier.  Headshots for Teens can be tricky because of this, so go with a photographer who has lots of experience shooting kids and teens headshots in LA & Thousand Oaks.

Our actor & model above, Spencer, came to us from a music background, with an interest in branching out commercially ….which is obviously a great way to cross promote your talent if you’re a kid whose a double or triple threat.   Nowadays, more than ever, agents are excited to take on new talent that has already proven themselves in another artistic medium, such as singing, songwriting & playing a musical instrument.  The looks above show both sides of Spencer’s personality:  Crazy fun Nickelodeon/Disney kid …..and total Teen Heartthrob.  We’re so looking forward to what this young man will do next!!!
