Find Me On

My daughter, that is. After much thought on my end and begging on my daughter’s….I’ve decided to submit my daughter to a local talent agency. She says she wants to model and act. Well. I guess we’ll give it a go and see what happens! I have to admit….I’m kinda nervous about it. She is beyond excited.

So, I’ve been researching and the first thing we have to do is get professional head shots and put her in acting classes. Easier said than done. I am in the process of getting price quotes for the head shots…so far I’ve gotten $150 flat fee from one photographer and another wants $175 per hour (and he says it will take 3-4 hours to get it done). Um wow? I didn’t think it would be cheap but I didn’t think it would be near $700 on 3 poses. Another quote I got was $500 flat. And they all seem to be really good photographers. Can you guess which one I’m going to go with?

So far, the acting classes have been harder to find. But I did find some. Not sure how much that is going to cost yet, but going by past classes this person held, we are looking at around $150-$200 for 6 weeks worth of classes (give or take). That makes sense. She will also be taking swim lessons, which are not really that expensive.

Wish us luck on our new adventure! And if anyone has any experience…tips would be great. I’m not one of those horrid stage moms (and never will be…there are just some things we will not do, some lines that will NOT be crossed). I’m not even sure if she is “acting” material. I mean, she entertains us all the time, but acting in front of strangers and/or a camera…is alot different. As I said…we’ll give it a go.

My daughter also wants to model so she's been doing a lot of research. Read a LOT. I have heard you really don't need to spend a lot on headshots but I could be wrong. I think some agencies will also pay for them if they are truly interested. Stella actually had some students at her college do some shoots for her and many are absolutely GORGEOUS. I"ll send you some pics! There are a lot of scams out there so be careful! I hope you guys have fun with this! Keep us posted!


Thanks!! I would love to see the pics! I was reading on commercialkids.com that we shouldn't get professional head shots until she has a few jobs under her belt (and kids change so much). So, I will probably wait on those. I have already found a talent agency, locally, and they seem to be very reputable. We'll see how it goes!
