Children’s Portraiture: Let Kids Be Kids ~San Francisco Portrait Photographer~


Photographing children is a challenge but tons of fun too.  Parents have a lot of great opportunities to photograph their kids.  Coming from the outside you have to build the trust kids need to be comfortable with you.   What to do?


  • This day Asher was quite shy and first and I pretty much let him come to me first.  At the end of the day he was climbing all over me.
  • When kids are themselves it lends itself to great photo opportunities.  Letting Asher just “read” to me was hilarious as he made his scary face and explained.
  • Parents stop having your kids smile at the camera!  The best images are when they aren’t paying any attention to the camera at all.  See for yourself!
