Something that’s guaranteed to get me all stressed out is the task of photographing another photographer’s family… but photographing a family with TWO photographers? Oh ya, and four boys to chase around? Serious pressure. But then again, when you’re photographing Jean and Travis Smith and their handsome crew, you end up laughing so much that you forget you were ever nervous. We were only aiming for a few family pictures for the Christmas card, but scroll down to see why I couldn’t resist taking some extra shots of this adorable couple…
You’ve seen these girls in years past… now meet their adorable, squishy little brother. I love how their mom coordinated their clothes without getting super matchy matchy. It works so well for their family’s fun, stylish personality.
Would you love to see your child photographed in an upcoming Laurel Photography editorial photo shoot? I’m always looking for children with unique features (red hair, very long hair, natural curls, freckles, etc.). They don’t need to have modeling experience, but they must take direction well. I’m looking for children of all races, between ages 5-10 years.
What is an editorial shoot? It’s a photo shoot in which clothing, hair, makeup, props, and location are designated to a common theme. Editorials are sometimes done for clothing designers and publications, and sometimes they are done for artistic expression or business promotion. You will have to sign a model release to give permission for images to be owned by Laurel Photography. In return for your time, and your child’s participation, you will be given roughly 5 edited images as digital files with unlimited print rights.
Please submit the following information using the CONTACT link at the top of the page. Include:
- Child’s Age
- Child’s Gender
- Child’s disposition (outgoing, shy, talkative, energetic, calm, silly)
- Modeling experience, if any
- Talent that might be visually interesting, or could be easily incorporated into a shoot (dancer, violinist, equestrian)
- Contact information
After you have contacted me, I will email you back so that you can send me 2-4 images to show full height, facial features and hair (snapshots are great as long as they are clear).
I can’t guarantee that all children will be selected… there are so many variables that determine whether we need a certain “look”. I’ll keep all entries on file throughout the year. THANK YOU for your interest!
This editorial was inspired by the copper, bronze and grey colors that pop out when everything else is covered by white snow. You can see some of these images published in one of my absolute favorite online publications, The Dreamer Journal. It’s exciting to be a contributor to such a beautiful and creative publication. Special thanks to the lovely models… non-identical twins who braved the cold for this quick photo shoot, and my neighbor’s massive Saint Bernard’s who matched the color scheme perfectly!
Obviously someone is a little behind in blog posting (*cough cough*). But look at it this way… at least you have some warm, summery pictures to look at on this cold January day. Totally did that on purpose.
