Hello & Welcome!
Did you know Casting Season has begun? Yes, it has! And this year, they are going on full speed!
There are so many casting directors looking for new faces and new little models. My inbox gets filled daily with Casting Calls.
Do you believe your LO could be a great model? I'm sure you do! I believe as mothers, we just know our children are ready to take the world by it's feet and "walk a thousand miles!". Am I right? Yes!
As a mother of three little models and a Portrait Photographer, I know just what to do when it comes to casting calls. So, let me fill you in!
The MOST important thing it's to make sure your children will enjoy it. You don't want to force your little ones into it. This should be a fun hobby, not a forced career at an early age. Play around, take some shots with your phone and see how they react! If they love it, then you know to give a try!
Does he/she/them have a great personality? That's what most Casting Directors want to see! Record it, contact your local Modeling Agency and give it a world.
Now, please beware of scammers! I cannot stress this enough! Please do not buy into any photographer telling you to pay them a certain amount to get you "in".
Yes, some of us do have an easy way in but not all do, some please ask around first.
What do you need to do?
Start by taking some full body and headshot images. Search for your local Modeling Agency and make an appointment.
You must open a savings account for them to deposit their earnings. You only get a small percentage for your trouble of taking them to their casting calls. Then again, this is for them, right? Yes! Nothing better than not having to worry about College Funds. They get to earn it while having fun and still not interrupting their childhood. I believe it's a win win!
Once you have spoken to the Modeling Agency, and gotten the Bank Account settled, it's time to get some Great Headshots, even candid photographs to add to their Portfolio.
You could do this on your own or you could hire a professional photographer that has the knowledge to make your child's images vibrant enough to catch the attention of the Casting Director on the first swipe.
If you ever need help, please feel free to reach out! As a photographer and a mom in the trade, I'll be more than happy to assist!
I love capturing Little Ones Personalities and it makes my heart sing when I see each of them get hired. I do have packages available for those interested in going into modeling. *** Outside of the 20 Miles radius, traveling charges apply. ***
