Kid Model Headshots | Denver Model & Actor Photographer

In the model industry, having some great photos is an important part of making an impession. Kid models will need some headshots for their portfolio page and comp card once they’ve been accepted to be represented by an agency. Becoming a model takes more work than a lot of people realize. It’s not just being a pretty face. In my opinion, every child is beautiful, yes, your child is the cutest kid on earth, but child modeling in front of a camera requires some natural or learned talent, skill, an outgoing, flexible personality and can take awhile to practice auditioning, landing gigs and performing. Agencies are looking for a variety of different looks.
Is your child photogenic, charismatic, uniquely talented, comfortable taking direction from adult strangers, able to patiently hang out on potentially long jobs, confident and ready to handle rejection?
Are you thinking about having your child try their hand at modeling? I suggest you take just a few good snapshots of your child in a cute, neutral color outfit, no makeup, and take one close-up and a full body shot to submit to agencies. Do your research and locate a few of the most reputable talent agencies in your area. Some agencies have open call auditions to locate new talent and others will allow you to just simply email/send your photos to them for review. A few reputable and legit modeling/acting/talent agencies that I know of in the Denver, Colorado area include Donna Baldwin Agency, Wilhelmina, Big Fish Talent and Maximum Talent Agency. Check these companies out to see if they are accepting new kid talent and find out the details of their requirements to submit your child. Once your child has been asked to do a contract with a good agency, then I encourage you to find a photographer that can snap some professional photos of your child that will be used on the agency’s website and for sharing with their potential clients. Getting 2-3 different looks/outfits is suggested for headshots.
This doll here, Emmie, just landed her first modeling contract, so her mom wanted to get some natural, bright headshots of her to showcase that cutie face! Good luck Emmie! I hope you have a lot of fun on your modeling auditions!

I love taking photos at the Denver Photo Collective studios for an indoor photo shoot option. This session was a delight with one of my son’s school classmates and her sister for some creative head shots and portraits. These sweet girls are hoping to try some commercial modeling and I think they’d be great! They did such a good job listening to instructions, posing, having fun and being efficient about outfit changes so our session would move along and fit into our time slot at the studio. I’m over the moon about the newly painted charcoal black small room at this studio, where I captured some slightly moodier portraits of the girls, and looking forward to working more against that backdrop with natural daylight and maybe some studio lighting in the future! And, you can’t beat a velvet sofa photo prop, am I right?! Adore this new peachy pink couch at the Lakewood studio for photographers to make use of.
