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!

Fresh Berry Baby Photo Shoot | Creative Portraits & Milestones | Colorado Photographer

Summer! What a shiny and most wonderful time for a warm outdoor photo shoot! This one-of-a-kind fruit warm bath session is a darling way to capture your baby or we can shoot your toddler just eating some berries & playing in a cute summer outfit for some magical and creative berry patch inspired prints to hang on your wall! I love to get crafty & have an excuse to put together a little DIY setup. You can do-it-yourself too if you’d like to create your own berry themed photo backdrop. For this session, I crafted & sewed my own fabric banner (using a variety of scrap fabric in floral, modern and berry prints from JoAnn Fabric), found this super sweet and affordable strawberry outfit for a 12 month old, a white wash bin & a strawberry patch antique style sign, added the berry containers (I already had these on hand, but you can find them here too), vintage jar and vase of flowers for a simple but special milestone portraits shoot setup. We snapped these photos in my client’s backyard! This sweet berry babe is turning one, so what a cute way to document this stage of her babyhood!
Would you like me to capture some whimsical babyhood or childhood photos for you?
Book Now and let’s photograph your precious berry baby soon!

TWO Wild | Turning 2 years old | Child Lifestyle Portraits | Lakewood Photographer

A spur of the moment shoot with this darling & precocious, on the go, almost two year old! He’s a wild one, curious, a bit serious, but oh so sweet! He kept me on my toes as I casually chased him around the yard, trying to capture those big brown eyes and porcelain face for some photos that his mama can treasure and share with grandmas too! No time to overthink a lifestyle shoot like this, just let the toddler play and snap away. Happy to have captured his blue eyed big brother for a couple shots too. Birthdays are the perfect time to do a shoot, to celebrate and document those special milestones & everchanging details of the childhood journey.
