Emily | Actors Headshot Photographer | Deirdre Ryan Photography

Emily is a young up and coming tween actor whose passion for acting is leading her outside of NJ and into NYC. She's about to have a very busy summer before entering her Freshman Year of High School, but she has a lot of love and support from her family.

I set up for her session in her home, and kept everything very simple. At first I had her on a stool, but her family had a great wooden bench, so I used this instead. Using only one light and a large modifier, we chatted, I had her do some silly faces, some direction, relaxation techniques because having a camera pointed directly at you can make some nervous, and her mom even go in on the fun.
