A standard procedure with modeling photography is signing a model release.  Each participant will need to have a modeling release signed by their parent or guardian in order to shoot.  Please print out a copy via link below, complete the form and have it with you when you come to the shoot. We understand this experience may be new for some parents.  We've included answers to many common questions below. But if you'd like to discuss any particular questions or concerns you're welcome to contact us via the information at the bottom of the page.

Who are we?

Jaze Modeling/Jaze Photography are part of Jaze Companies. We've been providing photography services to the Dayton area since 2000. We understand selecting a qualified photographer (especially when it comes to your kids) can be a challenge.  You're welcome to learn more about our company here.  You can also find more samples of our photography work here.

You'll want to bring a few outfits with you to shoot. We suggest:

For dance/contortion pictures:

  • Leotards
  • Rehearsal wear: Leggings, shorts, halter tops, sports bras, tank tops, etc
  • Recital/competition costumes

For regular portrait pictures:

  • 2 pairs of pants
  • 1 pair of shorts or a skirt
  • 3 tops to match the above
  • 1 dress

Bring some shoes to go with your outfits, any accessories you'd like (hats, belts, jewelry, etc). Also, bring any hair or makeup supplies you might need.


For Milk Bath pictures:

  • Black bandeu top
  • Black boyshorts or bikini bottoms
  • Towels
  • More details on this concept are below


Are there any costs?

There is NO cost to you for participating in the photoshoot.  All aspects of the shoot (and the resulting images) are provided free (you are, however, responsible for your travel expenses).

Am I Signing up for anything?

Nope! Participating in the shoot doesn't sign you up or obligate you to anything beyond just the shoot itself.

What happens with these pictures?

The pictures taken at the group shoot will be provided back to you, digitally, about a week later. We use Google Drive for getting images back to clients.  Please be sure your email address on the model release is correct.  If you have gmail address, we encourage listing that one. The model release you sign prohibits us from using the pictures for any other purposes.

Can I stay with my child?

Parents are more than welcome to come to the studio with their child and stay during the shoot.  More information will be made available about this once we know how many will be attending.

Can I share pictures with family?

Yes! The model release you sign grants you permission to post the images online/share with family or make personal-use prints.  The only thing you can't do with the images is sell them 🙂

I have another question

If you have another question or concern our contact info is included at the bottom. Feel free to reach out to us.
