Behind the scenes of a child fashion shoot

The alarm went off at 6am this morning, up bright and early on the school holidays isn’t something I would normally be doing especially as I am on holiday from work too! But today was special day, today was Joseph’s photoshoot for an online department store.

The call time was 9am and we had to travel to Camden Road in London. It took us an hour and 15 of travelling on one bus and two overground trains and a short walk from the station and we was there 5 minutes early.

The room where Joseph’s shoot was being held had a pool table and a sofa, so while the boys played a spot of pool I sat down on the comfy sofa for a little break.


Joseph was called in to make up where he had his face powdered and they tried to tame his hair with a spray of hairspray.


Hair and make up all done he was ready to don some of the gorgeous clothes and pose for the camera


It’s hard for me to get Joseph to stand still so I’m not sure how they managed to get so many snaps of him standing still but they did and I think it was a success!

I promised him if he stood as still as a statue for 5 seconds I would buy him a bubble wand, he went further than 5 seconds an managed a whole 12 seconds which is a record for him lol

The shoot was over by 11am, so saying our thank yous and goodbyes we was free to go home, now we just have to wait until his photos go online 🙂

If you have any questions on child modelling that you would like to know, ask away and I will try and help as much as I can 🙂
