A Note from Amy
I'll just tell it like it is...I love kids and kids love me. We just click and I think it shows in my images. I am on the preferred photographer list for San Francisco's top model and talent agencies which means that you are in good hands when trusting me with your child's headshots! I pride myself in delivering a professional, fun experience at the shoot as well as a quality product that creates bookings and opportunities for your child or teen in the acting and modeling industry. The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping kids achieve their dreams and goals through providing top level headshots that set them apart from the crowd and showcase their unique spark. I value that my pictures serve a purpose and I feel a personal investment in the aspirations of every kid!
When browsing through my portfolio you'll notice that the kids are emotionally connected with the camera and engaged 100% which is very important for successful headshots. As for my shooting style I believe that even when adding a touch of glamour kids should still look like kids. My work is modern and clean with minimal retouching or filters (no overly photoshopped eyes!). You'll receive fresh, commercial looking headshots that agencies and casting directors love. I can't wait to work with you!
San Francisco Bay Area Locations
I am available for sessions in the Bay Area most every Saturday of each month. I vary the location based on the first bookings that come in for that date. Popular shoot locations are the downtown areas of Pleasanton, Martinez, Fremont, San Rafael, and Saratoga.
I am available for sessions in Sacramento on weekdays (mornings or after school) and also on Sunday afternoons. Occasional Saturday appointments are available upon request but I am usually shooting in the Bay Area on Saturdays.
Headshot sessions are available for children and teens ages 4 -18 years old only. (Your child must have surpassed their 4th birthday by shoot date!) When I'm traveling out of NorCal for sessions the minimum age requirement is 4 years old. Currently I am not booking sessions for babies, toddlers or adults. If your child is not yet 3, please keep me in mind for your future headshot needs. I would love to work with you down the road!
Hair and Makeup
Hair and makeup is available on site at all of my headshot sessions. I strongly recommend adding this service for boys and girls of all ages. We bring a generator for styling tools as well as a changing tent for outfit swaps. You will not need to bring any of your own hair or makeup products as everything is provided. Additional details of what hair and makeup entails and why it is important are included in the pricing PDF via email.
Outfit choice is crucial to the success of your child's headshots. After you have booked your session I will send a list of styling recommendations and ideas. On shoot day if you bring a variety of choices I can consult with you in person and help you decide what will work best with your child's skin tone. Some agencies also like to give wardrobe recommendations so please check in with your agent or manager as well.

- Outdoor Natural Light Session for Ages 4 -18 Years Old
