Noah’s modelling portfolio shoot
Donna, mum of aspiring teen model Noah, wanted to arrange a photo shoot for her son to support him in realising his modelling dream. Noah had always wanted to break into fashion modelling but lacked the online presence to showcase his talent and capture the attention of potential kids modelling agencies.
Noah needed a set of professional headshots to not only include in his modelling portfolio, but also to share on a newly built Instagram page.
Nancy Milis Photography stepped in to help!
The process began with Donna and Noah completing the detailed questionnaire on the website so we could assess the vision for the photo shoot.
Understanding that Noah wanted to pave his future in fashion modelling, we developed a personalised mood board and shared this with him and Donna a week before their shoot. The photography mood board set the direction for the photo shoot and shared inspiration and ideas for various styles and looks we believed were perfectly tailored to showcase Noah’s personality. Noah was also encouraged to bring along any outfits so our stylist Anna, could select options for a series of different looks.
The day of the photoshoot ran seamlessly.
We began with the mentor session and chatted through the mood board to uncover which styling options Noah was leaning towards. Once we’d locked in the styling and type of shoot, Anna commenced the hair and makeup process to enhance Noah’s natural features, whilst keeping with a natural finish.
The modelling portfolio photo shoot took place outdoors at a location of Noah’s choice, which we agreed, would be the perfect backdrop for some magical photography!
We shot a series of photos including a variety of full and medium-length shots as well as close-ups whilst offering gentle prompts and guidance along the way, to ensure we were capturing only the most spectacular content.
Both Donna and Noah were beside themselves! Not only did Noah feel like a star throughout the entire process, Donna was impressed at how confident her son was in front of the lens.
Noah received a selection of the most captivating photos to include in his teen model portfolio along with tips on how to effectively promote himself on his Instagram page to grow his following. We also put some kids modelling agencies on their radar so they could start their research towards the next steps in Noah’s modelling career!
