1. Release forms must be signed by parents/legal guardians. We will have
them on premises when you arrive. If you are bringing up children that
aren't your own, please print out this release form and have it signed.
Kip will not photograph anyone without a signed release.
Have your child wear their typical clothes. We'd like them to look as
everyday (and beautiful!) as they normally do, as opposed to having them
look "dressed up."
3. Please do not have your child wear all white.
Kip shoots on a white
backdrop, so white jackets, t-shirts, etc. bleed into the background. The
less white clothing, the better.
4. Let your
child know this is a fun project. Kip is great with kids, and
he'll joke around with them and show them their pictures. But anything you
can do to get them in a fun frame of mind is appreciated. Please make sure
they're well-fed and have gotten their sleep! :)
5. Depending on crowds, the
whole portrait process can usually be
completed in 10 minutes. Your child will also be given the opportunity to
write about themselves on a piece of paper (similar to Kip's other books).
They can write as many statements as they want, but they must finish it at
the shoot before you leave -- i.e. no sending it in by mail later. Kids
are pretty good at coming up with their own genius ideas here!
Any questions please let me know.
