The Baby and the Balls: Play is my main tip on professionally photographing babies & kids. In my child photography gallery, this image is timeless & loved by so many viewers.
So, 'how to photograph kids' is a common question. One of the most fun things for me to do as a photographer is to spend time photographing babies and children at play. This little guy was determined to retrieve these two plastic balls from underneath the couch. I found an angle where I could shoot through to the other side. I was laughing so hard as I took this, with his tongue sticking out in that determined way.
There should be a 'Complete Guide to Photographing Kids' but every session is different, with differing levels of cooperation from the 'talent'....sometimes it just comes together in an unforgettable image.
