"My daughter is barely 5 years old and understanding how difficult it can be to photograph a young child made me a bit apprehensive. Of course I had no idea what a gift we had found in Rena Durham. Her photo shoot with Rena was an outstanding success! From the moment we arrived to our conclusion, Rena worked to help her feel at ease and within minutes was capturing the true inner beauty of my daughter like no one ever has. She's supportive, professional, guiding and fun! Five changes of clothes and almost four hours later, we drove away with Kiara asking when she could come back and do it again. Rena thank you..." - Gillian G.

She has worked with my celebrity clients but also my up and coming clients as well and the pictures are always brilliant, the parents and the kids rave about the experience and the pictures speak for themselves. Rena Durham is a true master of the camera and a gift to the industry!" - Susie Mains, Trilogy Talent|
"My 8 year old son needed new headshot and in my business, I deal with a lot of Hollywood people and I know a lot of photographers. I also know that shooting a child, particularly MY child is a whole different ballgame. You need to work well with kids AND be able to "click" when the money shot happens! We have done shoots where there were plenty of good shots- but they were somehow all missed! I called the folks at Children in Film, because I knew they would know the very best of the best photographers and I didn't feel like wasting my time. Rena was on the shortlist- and the only one I called. We scheduled the shoot for just a few days later. She was quick, efficient, and brilliant with a wiggly 8 year old. She is a master of the light, creating bright beautiful shots and was able to my son having fun and giving good expressions. She knows exactly what she's looking for and what she's going to get. I didn't. I was a mom that wanted to fix his hair every 2 seconds- but also wanted to leave the room 'cuz I knew he'd be better without me! Rena allowed the perfect combination of both! She was fun and he really related to her. She has a young son and knows very well how to deal with kids. Within 2 hours we were done- the next day I had my proofs and to my shock there were so many great, usable, marketable photographs. And my son looked gorgeous. Rio's manager went wild! She called Rena "Beyond amazing" and his agent said it was a lovely shoot- there are just so many good ones. I couldn't WAIT to get these shots up and posted and printed and working for us!
I couldn't be happier with Rena's shots! I will refer her to everyone and definitely seek her out the next time we need headshots."
- Ann Mangini
"We have used Rena twice now for both of our kids acting headshots. Every casting director that has rated my children's photos has said that they are excellent!! I have been an international model for about 20 years and am very particular about photographers. I chose Rena because she has a gift at being able to capture the true essence of your child in her photographs. When you look at the photos of your children, you think that someday when your children are older they will get a true sense of what they were like when they were younger. Its more than a photograph with Rena....its who they truly are..." - Kelly J.
