I would like to share this great article on Babiekins Magazine about Amanda Elkins, our wonderful photographer who got her start shooting for No Slippy Hair Clippy. In the article, Amanda talks about how taking photos of her young children stoked her passion for photography and blossomed into a career:
“My friends would see the images and ask me to take a few shots of their kids, and soon, my friends’ friends were asking me to do the same for them. When my baby girl was about nine months old, I started shooting images of her for No Slippy Hair Clippy (a great hair accessories company for little girls). That led to working with child actress Ryan Newman for a No Slippy Hair Clippy catalog.”
Amanda has a keen eye for photographing children, capturing not just their innocence but also their character and individuality. We are proud to have her stellar photos grace our website and consider her a valuable, influential force on the Hair Clippy brand.
Since her early days with us at Hair Clippy, Amanda has gone on to do fashion shoots with TV and movie stars and other celebrities. She recently shot four Twilight actors for the Fall issue of Zooey Magazine, and has produced photo shoots featuring stars such as Jennifer Love Hewitt and Anna Kendrick.
Amanda is based in LA and is currently photography director of Zooey Magazine. See more of her work here.
