Offering inspiration as well as guidance for portrait photographers to use during sessions with infants and toddlers—notoriously difficult subjects for posing—this guide takes a uniquely visual approach to instruction through its 500 stellar shots. With the challenges faced while working with children, it is easy to end up in a rut of go-to poses. The book counters the stock image effect with its broad variety of creative options, and incorporates experience-based knowledge on achieving successful results, such as creating a comforting zone for the child or the potential assistance of integrated props. The poses highlight what the parents love to see while considering what will work with even the most willful of young subjects.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is quite simply what it says it is. 500 great images meant to inspire you. While the title suggests posing as the main focus, it is also quite the idea book for composition, settings, and props. If you're feeling a need to mix it up a little I'd pick up this book.
I could've found poses and how to pose for free on Pinterest. Waste of money.
