Professional Children's Portrait Photography - Working with children can be one of the most challenging endeavors a photographer is likely to face.

In this book, you'll gain insight into the ways that fifteen photographers approach their children's portraiture. You'll learn a wide variety of tried-and-true strategies for helping kids warm up to the camera, building the lighting setup and portrait concept, selecting clothing, promoting your studio, and more.

Each chapter is illustrated with images created by a single photographer, making this book a terrific creative resource as well as an educational tool. Sections on marketing will help you to sell your images, build your client base, and achieve your business objectives.
