Taming Tiny Terrors: Fun Posing Tips for Photographing Little Ones

Photographing little ones can feel like wrangling kittens sometimes, right? But fear not.

Here are some tips to capture those precious moments without the stress.

Tip 1: Start Strong with Family Poses

Begin your session with a warm-up: family portraits! This eases everyone into the process, especially if the clients are new faces. It also shows the little ones how to pose, making them more comfortable later. Pro tip: Keep things simple with minimal movement using a posing workflow. This works wonders for short attention spans.

Tip 2: Prompt Play for Candid Captures

Ditch the forced smiles. Instead, use posing prompts to guide families through different interactions. Think "tickle fight" or "race to daddy!" These playful prompts spark genuine moments and often lead to candid smiles you can't fake.

Tip 3: Embrace the Power of Bribery

Okay, hear me out. While I don't provide bribes, I wholeheartedly encourage families to bring small rewards like Cheerios, marshmallows or gummy sweets. Think of it as positive reinforcement – a little treat for a great pose! Of course, if your little model shines without incentives, that's fantastic.

Remember: Kids are little bundles of energy, not statues. Our goal is to create a fun environment where they can be themselves while capturing beautiful photos. These tips will help you achieve just that!
