Mommies and babies- model call

I am now looking for moms with babies who want to be photographed together!  I have a client who would like to find moms with knowledge of a ring carrier.  The carriers sling over the shoulder and wrap your baby up close to your hip or chest.  We are looking for 4 models (you do not have to be an actual model, just a natural, average mom!).  Babies should be between ages 0 through 2 years old.  Sessions will be studio, located in North County San Diego and will be held around the 1st or 2nd week of March.  Mom and babies will receive the free session and an 8×10 of their choice.  My client will also be donating towards something towards the sessions.  I will announce that shortly.

I will have more information about the client soon, but she would like to have these prints displayed in her boutique to promote her baby carriers.

If you are interested, pleast submit a photo of you and your baby to  Title the email with your last name and birthdate of your baby.  Within the email please note your experience with ring carriers (we can train!), your availability within the first two weeks of March.  All selected models will be required to sign a model release for use of the images for the boutique and for my own promotional use (posting on blog, web, marketing materials, etc)

P.S. I notice I get a lot of repeat submissions which I highly encourage!  You never know what look the client is going for.  If you would like to be considered for this and future campaigns please make a note in your email and I will have you on file.  (you will only need to email me that you are interested, but I will already have all your information on file.  I will ask for updated photos from time to time, but I will keep the one you send)

what blog?

Clearly, I have been lagging on the blogging end of things . . . I attended a lighting seminar this past Sunday and some of my photographer friends were telling me that I really needed to get back here and post!  I’m going to try to catch up and post a bunch of old and new sessions in the next month. 

I wanted to post this wonderful image tonight though.  This little girl has a grandmother who was a ballerina, and her mother and I just fell in love with this photo.  I snapped this in the middle of an on location product session as I saw it out of the corner of my eye. This is my client’s daughter, and although she knew she wouldn’t be the focal point of the shoot she had come dressed up to the nines because she heard that there would be a boy model at the product shoot.  So so cute!!!

More models!

Hello everyone!! Just a quick post since I am literally out the door and going to be gone until Sunday. . .

Thank you everyone for your DARLING submissions for the Wagamama model call!!  We have chosen our main models and alternates and I will be contacting parents on Sunday. I just finished their product only shoot this week, so I’ll post a couple of images then too to give you a feel for this product.  It’s awesome!!

There are a couple new model calls coming up in the near future . . .

  • Young adults promo (on location San Diego and Ventura counties, LA/OC tentative) – models between the ages 15 and 21. I might have a huge surprise in store for those who are chosen!  I’m VERY excited about this campaign.  This promo will run from end of February through April (possibly May).  Go ahead and submit your name, age, your "style" (looking for all different types of styles!), and a photo if you would like to participate.
  • Baby and mom (San Diego and LA)- looking for two moms who will have babies no older than 8 weeks on the week of March 24th.  If you are pregnant now and delivery date will match that timeframe, please let me know!  I am helping to host a national photography tour and one baby and mom will be chosen to be photographed by a national master photographer!!  (of course this will be in front of a couple hundred students . . but this is an amazing opportunity for one lucky mom and babe!)   Models need to show up on site at 6:30pm and wait until the instructor is ready for you.  The session will take 20 minutes.  Please submit your name, due date, location that you are interested in.  (San Diego seminar will be on 3/24, LA seminar on 3/25)
