Children's Modeling Portfolios–Yes we do them!

Ever wondered if you,  your child,  a niece or nephew have what it takes to be a model?

It’s  a great question and one we get asked a lot! The honest answer is you won’t know until you try! I’m not being cheeky or vague but lets look at this from the idea that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.

When you put people in front of a camera it changes them. Some feel right at home and are happy to play around and enjoy themselves while others freeze up. It’s a bit like throwing a ball, we all can do it just not as well as some others can.

So when it comes to you or your child being in front of a professional photographers camera you really won’t know till you try. It’s very important that the photographer knows children, is patient and has the ability to connect with that child, to disarm them and to bring out the personality of the child.  Looking at some of the most popular actors and actresses it’s not their face you always fall in love with it’s them!

It’s not all about looks as much as it is about personality. Catching the smile is one thing but the mischievous smirk, the wide eyed smile and laugh, is altogether something different!  The photograph should capture the personality as well.  I would like to think Vanessa and I are good at getting our subjects to relax and have fun in front of the camera Smile 

Confident Photographers leads to Confident Subjects!

Here are a few shots from a recent portfolio for a young model hopeful!
