I always love working with young actors who bring joy to the photo shoot! Annalise did such a great job and clearly brought her laughter and joy to this headshot session. One of the tips I give to all my young actors is to be relaxed and try to connect with the conversation we are having. I often tell the kids to look happy, smile through your eyes etc…. say a persons name who makes you laugh or makes you sad. These are often tricks that young actors in training learn to help them connect with their script or character. It’s about showing a piece of yourself and communicating through your eyes with the camera.
I want to thank her Mom for putting her outfits together and helping me with her daughters hair. It was very windy and by having someone there to work with was a huge help.
