need opinions comp card photos ADDED OLDER COMPS

So these are the photos I have picked for her comp card. This was so hard for me cause all the photos that I love she looks too old in. They market her from 12 to 14yrs old so I needed shots where she looked younger. Honest opinions, what do you think of these so far? Should I use them or try again? I have to add 2 more shots so I think we will do a ballet shot in her pointe shoes to show she dances and another fun one maybe a tutu? opinions appreciated:)

2. This one i'm not 100% sure about yet? I don't really like how her one eye is darker than the other one but not sure if you will reallt see that since this photo will be about 2in x 3in on the back of the card.

3. SOOC This was my second option to the first picture posted but pretty sure I am going with the 1st one.

4. Headshot/ The one I posted. Still need to edit her teeth cause the blue scarf makes them look yellow?

5. sooc I will edit this one as well but might have to go with a black and white cause she is much tanner in this shot since it was from summer.

I don't know what a comp card is, but I think these are super-cute and fun and beautiful!

They're all great! I don't know what a comp card is either, but I would think that at 2x3, you'd want one that is closer up, like #4, rather than one like #1. Just thinkin... Hard to see her features and beautiful smile as well at that size, if it's a full-body shot.

If I am correct, there has to be some body shots in the card correct? I think the comp cards are to show their diff looks. I think you did a great job. I like her fun personality and I think you did a great job of making it shine through!

Thanks girls I think I was just looking at them too long:) A comp card is for modeling. It's an 8 1/2 x 5 1\2 card with her headshot on the whole front side and then 4 smaller shots on the back of the card with all her measurments. She still works for Kohls and Boston store often but the card is for when she goes on castings to book modeling jobs where they are not familiar with her. You make about 75 to 100 cards and then bring one to each casting so they have something to remember you by. The last comp card she did was done by the photographer that shoots for vogue and marie claire magazine. (His name was UDO something)Her agencey flew him in and had a bunch of models at a farm and he shot them all. This is the first year in her 12 years of modeling where I am shooting her comp card vs paying a photographer. I just didn't want to have my mom googles on while choosing these pics since they are so important ya know? I will add a pic of her last comp card to show you girls but thanks for the opinions I really appreciate them!

Yes Sadie there has to be 1 head shot and 1 full body and the rest I can pick:)

Here are her older ones I did not do either of these but I add a watermark with anything my kids are on:) front and back 8yrs old

I think I might go with the layout that has 3 on the back after Tracys suggestion:)

I think yours are just as good if not better than the others. You did a great job of capturing her personality. And I like how her hair isn't done exactly the same in all of them. I think it helps to see the different styles she can pull off with her hair. A hair style says a lot, and can really make the "feel" of the look they are going for. JMHO.

Only thing that I might suggest is to try a different crop on #1. She's just a tad too centered for me.

Thanks Danielle, the 1st picture will be used in the middle of her comp card. So if you look at her latest comp card the back has 3 pictures. I chose to go with 3 rather than 4 (thanks Tracy) so you can see her better. So on the back I put #2 left #1centered and #5right. Thats why she is so centered but I agree if it were for my wall it might bother me lol!

I think the shots are good, they seem comparable to the other ones you used in quality.

What I will say is if you are aiming for 12-14 years you may want to make her look a bit younger, to me she seems in the high end of that range.
