Children are always fun subjects to photograph. Quite often they will not do exactly as required, such as look at the camera or stay anywhere near the lighting, but that is the challenge for the photographer!
The pictures in this gallery have all been taken using a portable studio environment. This is a high key environment using a white background. This type of set up works really well for children because it allows them to move around a bit and relax while the pictures are taken. Often, children are just not interested in listening to posing instructions, so it becomes necessary to be a bit more creative. Older children will often listen to posing instructions, so that can give more possibilities.
Another significant advantage of setting up the portable studio in your home is that if the children need breaks they can just go any play for a while until thy are ready again. Toys and changes of clothing are also ready to hand.
