We are constantly asked by photographers to provide them with image ideas for shoots that will be relevant according to current market needs. Here you have one idea for which there is always a great demand.
¿Do you have kids in your family, close circle of friends or acquaintances? Yes? Then you are so lucky, not only because they sure make life more fun, but because the daily life of children, with their routines and activities can be a great source of very interesting moments to photograph, especially to make natural images that show emotions. The children don’t have to be the cutest ad-perfect-kids; you just need know how to bring out their expressivity, whether humoristic or completely the opposite.
Take the following essential points into consideration before you get started:
Model releases, model releases, model releases!!!! Even if the kids are your nieces, godsons or your best friend’s first child, to make your images available for the market, and to avoid any legal complications in the future, make sure that you have the model releases signed by their legal guardian. See the model release section of our Road Atlas and pay special attention to the paragraph regarding minors Model Releases.
Be very careful of how the children are portrayed, as the most innocent of the images can be considered highly suggestive for some. And always remember this: ABSOLUTELLY NO NUDITY. Images of naked or semi naked children will not be accepted.
So here is a list of ideas based on an ordinary day of any kid that we hope serve you as a source for inspiration.
Wake up is a beautiful morning! – Morning routines
Lunch time!- During the day
Home Sweet Home -Afternoon/Evening
Winding Down – Night time
The gallery ADORABLE CREATURES is a sample of children images that can be found at age fotostock that we are hoping will serve you as an additional source of ideas.
