Sorry this is the best I could do on my sons digital he was tired. Sorry this is the best I could do on my sons digital he just got out of the shower and his hairs wet. Sorry this is the best I could do on my sons digital he’s sick.
Honestly , so what’s the point ? If you can’t send a great digital don’t even bother sending one. Let me explain how this works . When a client asks for a digital or video of your child it’s because they already saw their professional photo and they want to make sure they look similar before they book him. This also means you are one of the top kids the client likes. So if the entire purpose is to make sure the child looks the same. Then the child needs to look the same ! If he just rolled out of bed and looks a hot mess he’s not booking the job.
My suggestion is this . Find a day that works for you. Style your child’s hair, use a little makeup ( natural looking ), and dress your child cute. Then take a few great digitals and a great slate video. Keep it on your phone and also send it to your agent. This way you have it any time you need and you’re not taking mediocre photos last minute just to send something. Then update it every 3-4 months.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again. Your child’s photos are their business card for this industry. Without a great headshot , digital , and slate your child will not book anywhere near the next child who took their time getting great images. Find a moment and do it correctly. And don’t forget lighting is everything !
