One of my regular Clients is Child Talent Agency and Management company Alphabet Kidz, each month I get to photograph portfolio updates for the talents on their books. The "Kidz" I photograph range from 4 to 18 and its an absolute pleasure.
I love being able to offer this service and I even get to watch the children's careers develop. Many are very naturally gifted in many ways and it's great that they are able to express themselves, with such confidence, at a young age. Alphabet Kidz are a great agency too because they only represent children who really want to pursue this kind of career for themselves.
The children are all beautiful in many different ways, but one little girl I photographed recently was a very special little girl. Florence Bailey is 7 years old and as her mother works in the creative industry has always been in front of the camera. She has a beautiful face, like a little angel but don't be deceived, this is not just skin deep, Florence is one sassy, witty and confident young lady who commanded my studio in less than 30 seconds!
People often think modelling is "easy" or all you have to do is look nice for the camera, but that is not true at all, the best models are natural and emotive for the camera, they bring an energy which transcends the lens and makes you feel something. I think Flornce has these qualities in abundance and it was a pleasure to photograph her, I know she is moving onto brilliant things.
I have only used a simple 2 light system here to capture these simple but beautiful images of her, and I she is such a little treasure I wanted to share some of her images with you all.
I hope you like them
