Casting Call!

Winter is when a lot of photographers start getting antsy sitting indoors due to the chilly temperatures. I am no exception so I thought this would be a great time to hold a casting call and try out some fun new props/poses, etc. for a major update of Melissa West Photography.Models Needed:

March 10-13
1. Newborn - must be under 10 days old on the day of the shoot
2. 6-9 month old - must be able to sit unassisted
3. 9-11 month old - able to stand while holding on to something but not yet able to walk
3. Family with 2 children under 8
4. 6-9 year old
5. Pregnant Mama - in her 8th-9th month

The Details:

  • Sessions will be FREE of charge.
  • Participants will receive a complimentary 8×10. Additional prints and products may be purchased at my current pricing.
  • Sessions will take place between March 10-13 in your home.
  • These sessions will be focused on capturing 1-3 specific setups and poses that I have in mind in order to expand my portfolio. If there is time and baby/child is still happy, additional setups/poses may be attempted.
  • Requirement to sign a model release so that images can be used on my blog, website, marketing materials, etc.
  • 10-20 proofs will be presented in an online ordering gallery approximately 4 weeks after the event.

If you are interested, please email me at with your child’s name, birthday, and a recent snapshot of him/her. Please pass this onto your friends that have children this age or know someone that may.

And of course a post isn't a post without a picture! Here is Bella ready for all the winter weather=)
