Child Photography Tips

I pride myself on making children comfortable in front of the camera. Child portraits can sometimes be a tough challenge, but it’s a challenge I always enjoy. Here are a few tips when photographing children I’ve learned along the way.

Face To Face

I think it’s important to get down to a child’s level. Think how scary it could be looking up at a giant and that’s what a child might see. So I like to speak with them at eye level and maybe get down on one knee to communicate with them. You can tell they appreciate it. I want your child to know I’m genuinely happy and excited to take their picture and hopefully it will hang on your wall forever.

Show Your Excitement

It’s very important to me to greet your child with a smile and show them my sincere excitement and appreciation. I get to earn a living creating awesome family portraits and I never take it for granted. Enthusiasm is contagious and your child will hopefully pick up on my enthusiasm to work with them.

Say Their Name

Children will call you out if you don’t know how to pronounce their name. On the flip side, they will respect you if you call them by their name. Although, sometimes I’ll intentionally not call them by their name to get a laugh if I think it will work.

Introduction

“Hi my name is Brian and I love to take pictures with this camera! I think you have a great smile!”
You don’t have to say anything fancy. I keep my distance and greet your child with something genuine. 

Show Off Your Images

Show off your images to children. I love to compliment them as well. You can see their self esteem rise as they listen to your kind words. As a father myself, my child’s self esteem and self image is a top priority.
