You can tell a child it's over, but they don't necessarily understand 'over. James, "but his mother was pulling her hair out. She called me and we had a long discussion over the whole idea.
She didn't want him having nightmares and traumas. He's going to think it's Halloween. While the company has specialized in children models and talent for almost 10 years, it has recently begun representing adults again.
When Cameo was founded in Boston in by Jeff and Estelle Davids of Natick, the company focused on children but represented adults as well. The Davids sold the company in to Paul Montana, who in turn sold it to St.
James had previously worked for the Davids and Montana before assuming ownership. Upon taking the reins, she moved the company from Boston to Waltham where the rents were lower, the parking easier and the access simpler for its MetroWest clientele.

James lived in Los Angeles where she worked for 15 years as an actress. So she returned to Boston. In addition to running Cameo, St. James supervises The Workshop for TV and Modeling, an eight-week course geared toward teaching newcomers the ins and outs of show business.
Cameo currently represents approximately models and actors of all ages in the Boston advertising, television and film markets.
Models and talent interested in securing representation send in head and body shots. We have no open calls like some agencies have. So what is the agency looking for? The kids really need to want to do it. It can't be a parent's desire. It must be a child's desire. Also with teens, it's their desire. In fact, parents sometimes are trying to hold them back at that age.
They're drop-dead beautiful kids, but that's not what the client wants. For example, Madeline, she loves doing it. She's constantly asking her mother when can she be in front of the camera again. She's going to do an upcoming Hasbro shoot and she's very excited about it. When you say smile, they smile and it's not just posing in front of the camera. Most of what we do is active. They're often selling a product, so they're using the product, they play with the product.
They're just not sitting looking cute. They're acting in a sense so they really need to have a lot of personality and a lot of ability to take direction well and interact with the photographer. With adults, it's the same way. They have to be relaxed and really enjoy what they're doing.
James says she decided to return to adult representation because of demand.
Also, many of the Cameo Kids have moved on in years and are looking for an agency to represent them. I want to keep them. We're starting to build our adult files,'' says St. There were also items for sale that ranged from art all the way to science. The events offered were upbeat and I learned something everywhere we went.
My son and I definitely want to come back next year! There were so many workshops and fun activities for them. It was a great way to introduce them to the fun of a comic con, but in a just-for-kids format.
They are already looking forward to next year! Children and adults of all ages can find something entertaining and educational to do at Kids Con! The character performers were all spot-on and really interacted and talked to each child as if they were the star of the day!
The event hosted a variety of panels and activities, including interactive story-times with their favorite princesses and a Jedi training class with lightsaber training! Kids even got to be part of an instructional class on creating your own animated character!
Lots of fun and we will definitely bring the kids back! Looking forward to the next event! I love that it is centered around kids. Everyone that works and volunteers there is friendly and puts the kids first. My daughter and I had a great time learning about the artistry of creating comics and met a number of up and coming comic book artists!
We'll be back next year! We had a great time as a vendor! They took great care of us, tons of customers and lots of happy people! Can't wait for next year! To infinity and beyond!

My children have become big into the characters, and my daughter has become a happy reader. Comics seems to excite her because of both the writing and the drawing. The stories, the pictures, all takes us to new worlds. The best part of Kids Con, is it comes to life. You meet the creators, and it becomes real. Then that ignites a fire of possibility. We have come to love the comic family and supporting the comic community.
Keep up the great work. My 3 daughters had an awesome time and they were still talking about it at bed time. The vendors were all appropriate and engaging. The drawing activities were very cool and the kids loved Jedi training. The kids kept talking about how funny he was and it was great for them to get the energy out. My kids boy age 8 and girl almost 4 loved everything.
There's something for all age groups: The event venue was great too - with kid-friendly and inexpensive food options as well. We can't wait for next year!!
