commercial shoot // 3 year old buddies / by jamie atlas

I am clearly partial to these models- one of them I birthed, the other I’ve known since she was just fluttery kicks in Marisa’s belly. Honestly, we avoid hiring 2 and 3 year old professional models for commercial work, because the age is just so unpredictable - it can be damn near impossible to produce much in a day, much less stick to a shoot script. So rearing your own models for this age group is preferable…it takes the pressure off to produce a lot, you can just get what you get and quit when they say so. Here’s what we were able to grab from a shoot day with these buddies last week. And here’s a tip for shooting 3 year olds: letting them throw Cheerios all over the room piques their interest for a bit :)
