Tips to Photograph Children – Why Didn’t I Think of That? Wednesday

I thought this week would be the perfect week to share this blog post since I know we all struggle to get our kids to sit still for a photo. I have used these tips before and they have really helped. In fact, last week when a few of us went out to practice backlighting, my friend told me how impossible it was to photograph her daughter, age 3. Remembering this article, I told her I would bring a few props. She ended up doing an amazing job that night letting us take tons of pictures of her. This would also work with animals :) Buy your puppy a new chew toy and watch him sit still!!

Check out the blog post – How to Work with Children..Not Against Them from I Heart Faces to read some more of the tips.

Come back on Friday to share one of your photos with us!! Can’t wait to see your photos!

Don’t forget to leave a comment on Tuesday’s post to be entered in the giveaway!! :)

    I loved the shooting from a distance suggestion, I hadn’t really thought about it but it makes total sense!! I’m jotting that down in my notebook as I type :)
