Do you have any good tips for teaching children about photography?

I start by telling my own kids to follow light. Where is the light? Where are the shadows? Then how we can move our feet to get closer to what we are trying to capture. Those are 2 first tips that really help children take better photographs.

Where is your favorite place to take photographs?

My favorite places to take pictures are the places that are special to the person/persons being photographed. I love talking to my clients and picking out the perfect locations for them. Outdoors, at a place, or in their home. Then the pictures go from kids in a field to kids in a place they are comfortable in.

What's a creative tip for taking good photographs of children?

A good tip is putting down the camera when you first meet them. Smile and genuinely get to know them before throwing a big camera in their little faces.
