It’s a wrap! Sleepy Caleb and his amazing baby wrangler finish a photo shoot for Lightcatcher curtains.

Over the summer I will be sharing past posts I like to call “Real Life Recaps” from jobs that me and my family have done in the past. Many parents  interested in breaking their kid into the biz have no idea what to expect on set. If this sounds like you here is a great behind the scenes sneak peek into the ups and downs of what set life is really like. It takes a lot of preparation, patience and commitment to be manage your little ones career. Do you have a set experience of your own to share? If so, please comment below! 


The client and how we booked the job

August has been a busy month for my mocha baby! In addition to the Graco, NJ HealthPlus, and a family stock photo shoot, my son recently worked a job for a curtain company called Lightcatcher Curtains!

The company sells blackout curtains which are great for babies who need absolute darkness to sleep soundly.  He booked the job via NY Castings where I submitted his photo and linked to his profile. I was surprised when he was cast from the photos alone which was great because it eliminated the actual casting call. Direct bookings are awesome!

No sleeping on the set

The shoot was held in the showroom where Lightcatcher curtains are sold on 5th avenue and 27th St. The original notes said that my son would be asleep for the photo shoot, so in order to ensure that he would be good and sleepy I kept him from taking his morning nap. I bathed him, fed him, and played with him and then hopped on the train (because my car broke down that morning) to the job. But when we arrived at the job, what did he do when he saw the lights, the cameras, the wires, and the other kids? He was wired…and WIDE AWAKE!!

I had them clear off a bed away from distractions, and I took his blanket, stuffed giraffe and pacifier and read him his nap book. I laid down with him but he wiggled right off the bed after all of my hard work. I was nervous because I knew they would want to shoot Caleb soon…and he was no closer to taking a nap then when we’d arrived 30 mins earlier!

When the director came to check on us – he asked if he could put Caleb on the bed for lighting purposes. But once they saw him awake on the bed in his onesie playing around with the blankets and stuffed animal they decided they wanted to shoot him awake so they scrambled to get the shot and keep him on the bed. After every 45 seconds or so, he climbed off the bed and I had to try to get him back on the bed and make him laugh.

Baby wrangler to the rescue

After about 20 mins of shooting Caleb was restless….and you guessed it – SLEEPY!  He was fed up with my antics and was no longer responding to my cues. Just in time, in walks the stylist/baby wrangler extraordinaire. I don’t remember his name, but he was like a magician! In an instant he had Caleb laughing, giggling, playing peek-a-boo, and even laying down on the bed.

Before we knew it they had the shots they needed and our shoot was wrapped! Whew!

I quickly got Caleb dressed to leave, but not before he got his check! We strolled out of the building and before we turned the corner of the block…my little star was sound asleep.

In a Real Life Recap post from the summer I gave an account of what it is really like on the set of a photoshoot when you are dealing with little kids. Well another thing that often happens once you book and shoot a campaign is…you wait. And you wait and you wait – hoping that some day you will actually get to see your child in a magazine, or catalog, or commercial. But no one ever tells you when or where to look!

So I have become accustomed to doing random searches once or twice a month for the companies that my son has booked jobs with. Tonight, I visited the Facebook page for Lightcatcher Curtains and guess who was in the most recent post? My son! His photo is also featured on a blog written by a mom in Atlanta.

And so there you have it. 7 months have past and finally I get to see the end result. It’s the best part of being in the business. A little piece of stardom for my son who is tucked in his bed, fast asleep, not the least bit impressed with his 15 minutes of fame –  just as it should be.
