Furthermore, it is required by LAW in California, that every person who provides a service for a young performer (under the age of 18) have a CHILD PERFORMER SERVICES PERMIT. In order to obtain this permit, you must undergo an FBI background check and fingerprinting. Rena is one of the few photographers who has this permit, so you can rest assured you are entrusting your children with someone who is safe and throughly vetted.
