What child doesn’t dream of being a star? For many, the dream may be a passing fancy, and for others it stays in their blood a lifetime.
I love meeting kids who have this dream, and it’s incredibly rewarding to help them get one step closer to making their dream become a reality.
A quality headshot reflects that your child is a dedicated professional. And their headshot must catch the eye of a casting agent, who may be scrolling through hundreds of thumbnails and only opening a small percentage.
A good headshot can open doors, and I’m here to help them open for you.
Here are some examples of the variety of headshots I’ve made recently for young performers. Every child is unique, and their headshot should reflect their individuality.The most important part of a headshot is that the eyes should draw you in, and tell you a bit about the person. There should be something going on behind the eyes that gives the face a certain sparkle.These two cuties (above) are now living their dream! Ayla Schwartz is currently originating the role of Young Elsa in Disney’s FROZEN the Musical on Broadway. Go Ayla! And John Allyn is making his Broadway debut playing Billy in SCHOOL OF ROCK. Before that he played Michael Darling on NBC’s PETER PAN. Amazing!
Ayla was one of my first New Jersey clients. I had only been here for a few months and didn’t have a studio to work in, so part of the shoot was outdoors in the cold. She was a real pro! If you click on John’s name above you’ll link to the headshot I took of him being used at the official SOR website. Way cool!I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Madison (above) three years in a row as she grows, and outgrows her headshots. It is such an honor to be a part of her life and witness her maturing into a beautiful and talented triple threat performer.
If you are a student or the parent of a student, I’d love to be your photographer. Because I believe in supporting young talent, my student rates are very reasonable . For $350 you get a 45 minute individualized shoot and two retouched hi res digital images of your choice. One image can be a closeup of your face and the other a 3/4 shot. OR, you can get one with a warm smile and the other more reflective. We’ll get a great variety for you to choose from to suit your needs.
Thank you for being with me today, and if you can swing it, try to go see Ayla and John shine brightly on Broadway!
