Click! How To Take Gorgeous Photos of Your Kids

Everyone loves photos of kids! It’s great to capture their many expressions as they learn about the world (or just when they’re being goofy). As kids are usually very photogenic, it doesn’t take much effort to take great shots that create a record to look back on as they grow up. However, kids also have a mind of their own and are prone to tantrums whenever the camera comes out. Most parents give up and end up with very few photos of their kids. Or if they persist, the shots look posed and don’t reflect the children’s growing personality.

Darren Rowse from Digital Photography School realised this and has created a brand new ebook along with professional child photographer Rachel Devine that shows everyone how easy it can be to take gorgeous and meaningful photos of kids. And gives some essential tips to turn around the tantrums and make photographing a fun activity for all.
