We are looking for an image of a child that does not look posed. We prefer looking toward the camera, or at least facing the general direction of the camera (not a shot from behind). Must be vertical. Must look professional.
Portrait image for 8.5 x 11 color magazine. 1 person (or more as long as we can crop in on 1 subject), Child 3-10 yrs old. Cute with a Summer Look.
Something casual, cute, spontaneous but with a polished look (lighting / resolution / composition). Studio shot is fine if it clearly has a summer feeling. We prefer looking at the camera, or at least facing the general direction of the camera (not a shot from behind). Subject should not look sexy or provocative. No makeup on little girls or sexy clothing or body language. The goal is to get a photo that looks like we captured them having fun or being mischievous! I'm uploading the actual cover with a studio shot we liked (not summer, but you'll get the idea) We are in Michigan, so NO PALM TREES ... or anything that would look out of place from the Midwest, USA.
