Perfect Poses for Photographing Children

in Art, Photography

Posing Children from The Portrait Cookbook

Just in time for taking the best photo for your holiday cards, we stumbled upon photographer Kelly Willette’s series of guides for taking the best children and family portraits.  Her Portrait Cookbooks quickly and clearly show you the room settings and choice of poses that can best capture a memorable photograph.  The beauty of her advice is it’s simplicity and systematic approach that guides you to getting a diverse number of photos and poses to get those precious gems for the family album.  Written for professionals and hobby photographers including the growing number of MWAC’s (Mommy With a Cameras), Portrait Cookbooks come in four books – Posing Children, Posing Siblings, Posing Families, and Posing Seniors.

My review copy of Posing Children came with 28 suggested poses and 10 room settings and a checklist of shots to get during a photo session.  With my daughter at the age of playing hide and seek when the camera is aimed at her, now I just need tips for making my daughter sit still.
