About the Class

They’re not grumpy teens; they’re not in the terrible two’s. Children ages 5-12 might be considered in the “golden ages” of child photography. They can understand what you want, listen to instructions and, in general, work with you for a successful session. In this video class, Dennis Craft teaches you how to capitalize on that to capture the best images possible…and increase your sales opportunities!

Dennis first explores prepping for the session, from consultations where you figure out what mom wants, to ensuring you are ready to go (lights, white balance and all) the moment your subjects enter the studio. Once the session has started, Dennis demonstrates and discusses what you should do, including…

  • Using simple props.
  • Getting variety in your images with different poses, expressions, angles and distances.
  • Engaging the kids (if they’re not on your side, you WILL lose).
  • Working with siblings (even in the “don’t touch me!” stages).
  • Understanding the tricks of the trade when posing girls vs. boys.

By the time you’re done, you’ll feel like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, and kids and Mom will follow your lead!
