Photographing Childhood: The Image and the Memory by LaNola Stone

Children are one of the most intriguing yet difficult subjects to photograph. Whether you are a proud parent who wants to capture the fleeting moments of childhood or a professional photographer working with paying clients, Photographing Childhood: The Image and the Memory will give you the know-how and the inspiration that you are looking for to create the perfect image. Rich with emotion and creativity, this guide delivers tips from a master photographer who has contributed to Child Magazine, Pottery Barn, Martha Stewart Omnimedia, and many others. Learn how to take photos that are technically and compositionally sound; pictures that are so gorgeous they'll fill up your walls, refrigerator, and your family's (or clients') email in-boxes for years to come.

This book goes way beyond photography basics. There are countless important events and stages to document in a child's life; learn the secrets to making sure you don't miss a single photo opportunity. Be inspired by amazing shots from several historical and contemporary photographers. Working with children can be particularly tricky, and this book shows you what pitfalls to avoid to prevent tantrums (your own or your subjects!). Before you know it you'll have a collection of great shots that you'll want to share for personal or professional purposes. You will not find a more engaging, expressive, or nostalgic guide to taking photos of what you love most: children.
