I shoot headshots for people of all ages, I specialize in portfolio photos for kids and teens.
Up-to-date and high quality photos are essential for getting modeling and acting work!
Planning your session with kids is different than with adults.
Here is a short overview of the most important elements in creating portfolio photos for kids and teens.
Portfolio Requirements for Acting and/or Modeling
Actors need a strong close-up headshot and some 8×10 prints with the actor’s full name imprinted.
Models, once signed with an agency, will need a headshot (close-up) and then two to three other 3/4 shots or full body shots. These other shots are referred to as “LOOKS.”
An agency’s modeling comp card is usually about 5” x 8” on card stock and often has one headshot on the front with the model’s name.
The other 2-3 looks are on the back along with personal information like height, weight and clothing sizes.
Be sure to leave room for the agency’s name and logo.
