Children’s headshots (13 and under) has always been one of my favorite assignment when it comes to headshot or fashion shoot. It could be the first or be the last shot, but we always get the shoot. The general wardrobe rule of thumbs of kid’s headshot would be: no big logo, distracting typography, busy pattern, bright color or anything that will take the attention away from the face. Earth tone work brilliant, colors that will bring out your child’s eyes are must have. Avoid big puffy jacket, for casting director like to see the talent’s body frame, so wear something form-fitting. I typically suggest 2-3 looks, but be prepared for five complete looks so we can pick and select the best looks for the shoot. Makeup is not required, kids don’t need to look polish. Pets are welcomed, especially if your pooch will help light up that smile.
Turn around time is 7 days after the day of the shoot. I recommend all my clients to develop their headshots at Rocket Repro, and if you’ve worked with them before, then you know they are the Ferrari of headshots reproduction in town.
*For a nostalgic experience, I can discard my digital cameras and shoot it entirely on film. (Black & White or Color)
