Working with children and young actors has led to joyous headshot experiences and I find their energy a delight to work with.
Having worked with top child talent agencies in the UK I have a great idea of what is required for your little star to take their next step into the industry. I create an all round fun and enjoyable experience for your child, capturing their true energy and personality.
There is plenty adults can learn from kids when it comes to having their headshots taken, and you can watch my video on this here!

Session lengths can vary but in general we will work for around 1.5-2 hours reviewing the images along the way until we feel we have got exactly what we need.
