Finding the best headshots for kids

Los Angeles is a big city and it’s not always easy to find the right photographer for your child. It’s all about finding someone who can communicate with the actor properly in a way that will allow them to understand the different emotions they need to portray.

Headshots must have a wide variety of looks so that agents and managers can use the right one when submitting for roles. We’ve got a great list of looks that we depend on for headshots to help you maximize your money and time spent.

Next time you’re looking for a photographer to get headshots for your kids call us ! 310-622-5819

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!

Why not combine Family Portraits w/ Kid Headshots ?!

At Max Brandin Photography we’ve always been big on getting the absolute most for your money and time….which is why we encourage parents to consider combining their kid headshots session with a quick, fun, and easy family portrait session.  Some simple coordinating of wardrobe & a few minutes put toward a little hair & makeup for mom & or non-actor siblings gives us the opportunity to get some spontaneous and beautiful pictures shot in a No Pressure setting….  We never charge an additional amount for a quickie family portrait added on to your kids headshot sesh.

((( “Quickie Family Sesh” is no additional charge and inlcudes 35 frames.  If you’d like a more extensive family session added to your child’s headshot session, there is typically only a $50-$100 additional charge, depending on the size of your family and the location you’d like to shoot!!! )))   We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have, as well as consult you about hair/makeup/wardrobe.  Just contact us at 310.622.5819 to book a kid headshots session!

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.

For more examples of kids and teen headshots, visit our FB page, or contact us through our site.

Headshots for Kids & Teens Los Angeles

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!!!

Family Portraits, Thousand Oaks – “At Home” Session

When you have kids under 10 yrs old, sometimes taking them to a park or the beach for a family portrait session can result in stimulus overload.  This coupled with the need to be somewhat still for family pics can bring on a melt-down in little ones.  Even the most well behaved children often surprise their parents at photoshoots.  Any photographer who works with kids will tell you:  kids can SENSE the power they have over the situation….and a monster can sometimes emerge 😉  A great way to combat this is to do an “At Home” portrait session.  It’s low stress for obvious reasons….and can result in more playful canded pics, as well as beautiful traditional portraits.  We’re big believers in getting BOTH.

Max Brandin has been shooting High School Senior Pictures Los Angeles & Ventura counties for over a decade.

Female photographers Brandin Shaeffer & Amanda Max Weber combine a strong sense of traditional & classic with just enough edge to keep images current, yet timeless.  Years of experience, experts in their field, and strong opinions have made them the first choice for high school senior pictures in Southern California.

 

The beauty of shooting editorial style senior pics is that we aren’t just doing a basic portrait – we get the chance to tell a story with each image.  And each one of those stories captures a different side of our HS Senior.
