Child Photography is definitely one of the most rewarding. Once these little angels pose for you so cute, these photos will last a lifetime.

One thing I would like to do today, is mention a few things that you can do with child photography, to be more creative with your photos, so you will enjoy this even more.

HAVE THE CHILD BRING A PROP

A toy or stuffed animal is the child’s life, and they are the most comfortable with them. When they have their own prop, you can get them to do almost anything. And the real key is to take a photo of the child with their prop. Years later, you can tell your child how much they loved that toy. So, it’s a valuable thing to help put the child to ease, and get a great photo.

LET KIDS BE KIDS

When a child is doing something “childlike” then you have a perfect photo. They could be laughing, thinking, playing, and the picture you will get will be fantastic.

SHOW THEIR PERSONALITIES

Get some children together, and for some reason, you can figure out their personalities quickly. And their personality is what they will be the rest of their life. If you can capture their laughs, their funny faces, and how they react with other children is a very good way to show off their personalities.

PHOTOGRAPHY THE SPECIAL MOMENTS YOU HAVE

There are going to be some special moments in your life. As a smartphone photographer, you have, or should have, your phone close to you all the time. When you see something so precious, make sure you think to get that special moment captured. These photos will be treasured by more than you for a long time.

GET YOUR CHILDREN OR CHILD TO RUN.

I am not sure, but when you get a child to run, you will almost always see them smiling. Plus, you catch them in a “Playful” look, which is a great photo.

GET A GROUP HUG

Have your kids hug each other. It does bring out a special package too. I would make sure, though, you do this before they get to be teenagers. But, I went through a lot of photos of children hugging, and they are all smiling.

GET THE CLOSE FACIAL PHOTO

Once you have taken a real close-up of your child, you seem to look deep into their eyes, and it’s a personal thing, but, you just grow to love them even more. It’s a powerful photo. If you have a telephoto lens in your cell phone, use that, so they don’t feel paranoid. Capture the face in a very natural smile if you can, even if you have to take a lot.
