This is your child's first time entering into the industry. She is great at taking photos at home and you want to allow her the opportunity to experience the industry before spending too much money chasing her dreams. The first thing EVERY agent/casting director will ask for is...YUP! PHOTOS. How exactly will they know what your child looks like without photos? Most will ask for your social media. Uh..oh.. and..you only have blurry cell phone photos of Susie with her hand on her hip and a fake smile. Maybe you can use the one with Susie eating a cheese burger with sunglasses and a hat on? You send it, and receive no feedback...Now what, she looked so cute eating that cheese burger with her missing tooth. Where did you go wrong?
Agencies want to see your child's face, stature, hair, skin and more importantly their personality, not them eating a cheese burger with a hat and sunglasses on. You may not be as skilled at taking photos of your child as you think. Most children hate taking boring photos for their parents and usually produce a face smile just to get it over with. "Say CHEESE Susie".
Agencies may not ask for professional photos at the time of submission. If they are interested, having a professional portfolio already in hand will make you look like serious parent and will show Susie's range. This will have a positive impact on the outcome because it's apparent she has experience. If you don't have a professional portfolio, once signed you will need to get one with head-shots and full body catalog photos. This my friend is going to cost a pretty penny and you don't even know if little Susie will even like it. What do you do?
