Children -- as adorable and amazing and wonderful as they are -- are not always the easiest clients to photograph. Some are shy, some are fussy and some love to squirm and move around.
Getting a genuine expression out of them? Well, it’s not exactly easy as pie. It's more like preparing a fancy soufflé from scratch and crossing your fingers as you watch it grow in the oven, hoping everything goes as planned.
Don't just sit back. BE PROACTIVE. Learn more and forever educate yourself!
We're here to help you do just that with our How to Take Better Children Portraits, a BP4U collaboration with renowned child photographer Ashley Hempel. Miss Hempel has arguably taken some of the most striking, heart-rending photographs of children in the biz and she knows. Her. Stuff.

"This is a really, really beautiful guide and I love Ashley's style and approach! I felt inspired to photograph children and that's not even my specialty AT ALL!" - Wendy G.
"Ashley captures the magic of childhood in a way that you rarely see in other child photography. She steps inside their world and harnesses the essence of childhood. You can really tell that she’s connected to her clients and enjoys the work she does when you look at her images. This guide reminded me why I started photography to begin with and rejuvenated my photog soul." - Charley
"I would definitely recommend this guide, it was a good read, and I believe it could be a go-to guide for all, beginners, budding professionals and veterans as well." -- Tina

Are these posing cards printable?
Yes. We include digital files in both high and low resolution - high res for printing and low res for mobile devices. These will print these off as a 3x5. Many of our clients will print these off, punch a hole in them, put a ring on them and put them in their camera bag. Makes a great way to get out of a bind if you're having a brain freeze during a session. Need help loading your posing cards to your iPhone/iPad/iPod? Click here for a tutorial.
Can I print this guide?
Yes, you most certainly can! If you'd prefer to read your guide in print instead of digitally, feel free to print this guide for your own personal use.
I keep getting errors when I try downloading the guides. How can I fix this?
No problem. Try copying/pasting the link into a new tab. If that doesn't work, try using a different internet browser. (I.E. if you're using Internet Explorer try switching to Safari or Google Chrome to download the links)
