Children are the Subject

It can be a fun experience or one where you want to pull your hair out, but photographing children can contain all sorts of surprises. Babies, understandably are the most difficult. You work around their schedule, no compromises. Older children, like the one pictured, are willing for a short period of time to work with you. It helps if you have a prop or two to keep them interested. My experiences have been with non-models – photographing children for corporate clients who supply me with the talent – children of employees. Not necessarily a bad thing, I have met some wonderful kids who enjoyed having their picture taken. And being a difficult model is not the purview of just non-professionals – anyone can have a bad day.

The photograph above was taken with a medium format camera and a happy little girl.
