Hi Edward - I would check out Karyn L Golgart photography. She does great work - and supports various settings.

I highly recommend Holly at Native Light! She is an expert in her field, is great with kids, puts people at ease, and is really easy to work with.

I HIGHLY recommend Shannon is INCREDIBLE, fantastic with kids (she's a mom to 10 year old twins) and takes gorgeous photos.

I second Sara Eizen ’s rec or Shannon Garbaccio - she’s amazing both for our personal family photos as well as our professional headshot.

Thanks for the recommendations!

I'm specifically looking for someone who has experience taking professional head shots for kids (for casting call submissions). I checked the three Ted, Jennifer and Sara recommended and none have anything on their sites talking about kid head shots for casting calls as far as I can tell.

Can anyone help with this? I know Seattle is NOT a market for this stuff...

Hi Edward,
Danielle Barnum is well known for doing portfolio headshots. I personally have never used her, but she features children in her headshot gallery. You also may want to contact Shannon Garbaccio, she is terrific with children and might have an idea of what the parameters are. If not, she is very involved in the photography community and might be able to point you towards someone who may be able to help you. Hope this helps.

I came to post the exact same question (have a 12 year old who needs headshots for acting submissions). Please let us know who you went with and how you liked the results.

While not headshot specific, I absolutely LOVE Sparkfly Photography - they specialize in kids photography and headshots, so I bet a combo would work wonderfully! Dan and Stacia are just amazing humans as well.

Hi Edward and Carl, I have taken several kids shots for their comp cards. And I used to be a producer who worked with casting agents a lot so I am familiar with what is needed. If you haven't found what you're looking for, please give me a call, happy to talk to you more about what you need. Thank you!

Thanks for all the recommendations, and following up. We ended up going with Susan Doupé in Greenwood after my daughter saw the shots on her website. We did the shoot last weekend and were really happy with the process, we shot outside and Susan was very patient and supportive and would recommend. (I didn't see a profile for Susan on here)
