My new and dear friend, Riley, eleven years old, has just signed with an agency! Brava, Riley – You Go, Girl!
Faithful readers will recognize Riley from an earlier blog post, Aspiring Young Actor. Riley and her family attended a talent casting event for children in Florida this summer. This engaging young lady garnered a lot of interest, and she is now signed with an agency in Boston to do print modeling and also acting.
She needed new pictures for her “comp card” for the agency, so we shot these images in her backyard. We were trying to show the range of Riley’s looks and emotions. She is a treat to work with and is already a real pro. She did everything her mom and I asked of her, with great confidence, patience and skill.
Riley is amazingly photogenic – I’m not surprised she got snapped up by a major agency.
I brought a surprise prop to the shoot. Riley is, of course, too young to know about pink Princess phones from the 1960’s, but she loved it right away. We did have to explain to her how a rotary dial worked!
Riley is launched on a terrific career in modeling and acting. I wish her all the best and hope these images will help her land some fun gigs.
