Aspiring Young Actor

Last week, I had the pleasure of photographing this young lady. Riley, 10 1/2 years old, is an aspiring actor. She needed headshots for  for an upcoming national auditioning event. Riley came to the studio with her mom, and we had Maria Dominici, the fabulous makeup artist, who applied a very light and natural makeup on Riley.  The image above will be used for her picture on a comp card to give out at the auditions. I wanted a natural, fresh and engaging feel for this image, and Riley was able to deliver the look with ease.

Here are a few more images from the shoot:

Yes, those are her real eyelashes! Are you jealous, Ladies?

Riley is a charming, engaging young girl with lots of spunk and personality. And she certainly won me over when she told me she’d chosen me over the other photographers because I was the best looking one they considered. Ha! She’s going to do well in the world of acting.  Can’t wait to see her name in big lights on Broadway!


Is there a budding young actor in your family? I’d love to photograph her or him!

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.

    It must have been difficult to select one photo of my granddaughter Riley since they are all so excellent. You captured the energy in her smile and the “imp” in her eyes. Thank you so much. Grandma Penny
